[quote]can we get some sort of acknowledgement on the changes that happened to the qing system?

really frustrating sitting incredibly long q’s, its really obvious that something was put in place to prevent you from playing against the same team.

my question is why?/quote]

It appears that a PTR tuning hotfix for the Stormwall Blockade encounter didn’t make it to the live servers. We’ll be applying that hotfix, and we’re also reducing health and damage of several portions of the encounter, shortly.

In a hotfix on December 14, Bursting went from 10% to 14% of maximum health per stack (over 4 seconds). A bugfix late in Legion had removed occasional extra Bursting ticks, but made the affix something you could almost ignore. This change restores it to its original lethality.

The change made today overrides any earlier PvP-specific balance changes made to those Azerite Traits. For example, if a trait’s effect was previously reduced by 55% in PvP, it is now only reduced by 50%.

In 8.1.5, there is not a damage reduction to Barbed Shot. The change we’re testing is to have Barbed Shot ignore armor. The reduction on the tooltip for the Feeding Frenzy Azerite Trait is intended to keep Feeding Frenzy at the same value as before.

With Whirling Dragon Punch, there seems to be a bug causing a cooldown discrepancy. We’re testing it in 8.1.5, where it appears to be fixed, and appreciate the heads-up.
