Off topic, but here is my lastest post:

Some of you may remember the World of Burgercraft satire. Well, here is my verion. The World of Burgercraft: Paladin style.
__________________________
Burgercraft: Welcome to the World of Burgercraft where we have three new Palameals! We have a Cheeseburger, Fries, and a Coke, Hamburger, Chili fries, and a Coke, and a Hamburger, Fries, and a Shake.

Player: Uh, those were the same meals you had before….

Burgercraft: Yes, but we added new condiments!

Player: Uh, okay, I’ll have the Cheeseburger, Fries, and a Coke.

Burgercraft: Okay, here you go!

Player: Um, there is no cheese on this burger.

Burgercraft: Yes, there is.

Player: Uh, no there isn’t. See? No cheese.

Burgercraft: Well, sir, the cheese is in the sauce.

Player: Excuse me?

Burgercraft: We at World of Burgercraft determined that if we put actual cheese in the cheeseburger for the Palameal, it would create an imbalance in the overall scheme of meals here at World of Burgercraft. So, we put some melted cheese in the sauce.

Player: So, why didn’t you say that? Why did you say it is a cheeseburger?

[Crickets]

Player: Okay, fine. I’ll take meal #2; hamburger, chill fries, and a coke.

Burgercraft: Very good, sir. If you want to change your meal, it will cost you extra.

Player: Fine; whatever.

Burgercraft: Okay, sir, here’s your meal.

Player: Um, where are my chili fries?

Burgercraft: Right there, sir.

Player: No, those are regular fries.

Burgercraft: If you look at the side, sir, you’ll see a small cup of chili.

Player: What!!! That’s not chili. That’s a bean.

Burgercraft: It’s a very flavorful bean, sir.

Player: No, I want CHILI fries. Chili spread all over my fries.

Burgercraft: Well, sir, if we gave you actual chili fries, sir, it will interfere with World of Burgercraft’s menu scheme.

Player: What? What scheme? Okay, fine. I’ll take Palameal #3 with a shake.

Burgercraft: Very well, sir. There will be a small charge for changing your menu.

Player: Fine, whatever.

Burgercraft: Here you are.

Player: Uh, wait. I didn’t get a shake. This is a coke.

Burgercraft: But, we shook the coke, sir.

Player: Uh, no. A shake is kinda like an ice cream drink. It is not a shaken coke.

Burgercraft: I’m sorry, sir, but giving you an actual shake will again interfere with the overall World of Burgercraft menu scheme.

Player: So, you’re saying that the Palameal is a hamburger, fries, and a coke?

Burgercraft: We at World of Burgercraft do not want to tell you how to enjoy your Palameal. You can enjoy your Palameal any way you see fit.

Player: But, no matter what I order, I’ll be getting a hamburger, fries, and a coke. What about those guys? They’re getting chili fries!

Burgercraft: That would be the Warriormeal. It comes with a quarterpounder and a choice of either chili fries and a coke or fries and a shake.

Player: But they actually get either chili fries or a shake! What about those guys? They’re getting a cheeseburger! In fact, I see EXTRA cheese on their cheeseburgers!

Burgercraft: Well, yes, sir. That’s the Priestmeal. The Priestmeal comes with a cheeseburger, chili fries, and a coke or a cheeseburger with extra cheese, fries and a coke.

Player: Why can’t I get a cheeseburger, chili fries, or a shake in a Palameal?

Burgercraft: Well, sir if you got all three, you’d get too much for free.

Player: I DON’T want all three. Just one of those!!! Let me talk to your manager.

Burgercraft: I’m sorry, but the manager is unavailable. He has, however, heard your complaints. He disagrees with your view, though. The overall menu scheme is paramount.

Player: So, if I order the Palameal, I can only get a hamburger, fries, and a coke.

Burgercraft: We at World of Burgercraft don’t want to tell you how to enjoy your Palameal. You have many options that you can choose.

Player: But, essentially, all I’ll get is a hamburger, fries, and a coke. No extras.

Burgercraft: Well, the extras aren’t meant to make the Palameal better, sir, but just to give you more options.

Player: Fine. I’ll take the Warriormeal. With chili fries.

Burgercraft: Very good sir.

I tried to reply to him on the paladin forum, but at the time the forums were down.

His whole premise shows how gimped the paladin is, 5 of any other class could do BETTER damage by preforming their offensive abilities at the same time, with no need for a stun.

5 Elemental shaman could all turn on their crit talents and whooooooooo crit shock at the same time! OMG NERF.

damage damage damage that's all I ever hear from paladins. Get over yourselfs your NOT a damage class that's NOT your design.

Your designed to take a LOT to kill. Your a survival class. I dont' know about you but when everyone is going down in pvp or pve the paladin is almost always the last one left alive. a quick divine sheild and they can res the rest of the party saving eveyrone buts.

You guys have points you should be proud of that no other class can do. Stop thinking damage and learn to play. We paladins are FAR from gimped.
Learn how to survive. It's your job.

Who the hell rezzes in PvP? And how does a paladin in combat in PvE cast DS and rez anybody? What bloody game have you been playing?

That is the single most retarded post I've seen this year. And we're only 38 minutes into the new year.

Survivability - dps = boring, boring, boring.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: if I want to do support, I'll go to work and manage my support team, where I am paid to keep things running smoothly.

You so obviously don't play a paladin - in your post, you can't decide if paladins are "we" or "you". Posing as a paladin - how pathetic.

Oh, and learn2spell, noobnik.

And, FWIW, here's the comment, in response to an Ellia blasphemy, that'll probably earn me a bit of bannage:

Ellia: [quote] You tell paladins who want more DPS to reroll. [/quote]

This would have been an excellent thing for the Powers That Be to tell me... [b]a year ago[/b].

Instead, we all had to discover for ourselves that the class description was "misleading", to say the least.

I have no innate loyalty to the paladin class. I only stuck with it because of the time I had invested. If I had read that my role would eventually be cleansebot/healbot, I never would have rolled a pally, and I would harbor no ill will towards Blizzard. As with everything in life, if I have all the information to make an informed decision, then any wrong decision is my own fault.

If the paladin cannot be made fun without being overpowered, why not just delete the class altogether at the end of beta? Sure, you'd get some whining from the lore purists for a bit, but you could always keep the NPC paladins around, and end up with close to zero unhappy customers.

What I don't get is, why? Why have the Powers That Be allowed an issue that upsets so many paying customers go on for so long? Why do they continue to make statements that directly contradict the reality of the paladin's role? How can this possibly improve Blizzard's bottom line or public image?

How does any of this make business sense?

I'll believe that once ppl explain to me why Blizzard gave us any option to melee and use weapons in the first place ;p
