Imagine these new specializations did not get tests…. and instead we just got the professions added to the game in their current broken state when HoT released.
That would mean that everyone playing would be abusing the broken aspects of the new specs…. rather than a few handfuls of people willing to beta test in real pvp.
If testing did not occur this way, the problem would simply be delayed and it would be 80x worse when the problem finally did surface.
Beta testing pvp is a necessary evil, and I can’t think of any other way to handle the situation.
