rogue pvp

Rogues scale well with gear.

Start weak, end overpowered. That's the way it goes.

They are no longer able to assplode you in a single stunlock rotation. This makes Rogues sad.

The Spongebob gif is not an exaggeration. Not only did they get nerfed hard on mobility, but their damage took it on the chin in a very big way--which is the bigger problem, I think. Even on my squishy-ass affliction warlock I can ward off rogues without too much effort. They just don't hit hard enough.

I don't understand. I don't have a rogue. Why do rogues have bad pvp dps? Their one of the highest raid dps. I know the two are different, however I'd think that'd account for some large numbers both ways at least. People never explain why rogues suck. They just say their dmg blows without explaining.

30-50k Backstabs aren't bad. The issue (and the devs, especially GC, realize this) is that sustained damage is an absolutely awful way to kill people, right now. Which is why Rogues, DK's, Affliction Locks are hurting so bad in PvP. If you can't kill someone in 3 globals, you have the wrong class.

Rogues are probably a little undertuned, but, honestly, it's not their fault that EVERY other class is overtuned.

That's a pretty accurate point. The reason mages, warriors and demo/destro locks have been so ridiculous is mostly because of A. absurd burst killing geared players before they can dismount and B. healing being so potent that getting kills on teams with competent healers is near impossible outside of those windows when your cooldowns are up. It doesn't matter that a rogue's PvE DPS might be leagues above a warrior's, because the rogue's DPS is a fairly smooth curve, while the warrior's spikes up and down, and it's only at those "up" points when kills are possible.
