Yep. I think they've already come to that point, at least since WoD with Ashran, pruning, and RNG BiS trinkets. But WoD still had overall PvP gearing right. With Legion's bad PvP design it seems they're trying to drive the majority of decent/above avg. players out. So far they've done a good job of that. There's no way that this is just coincidence or "woops we fucked up again", or "jesus Blizz doesn't know wtf they're doing. Do they even PvP?". Not when they have 12 years of experience with WoW and all of the data on players that they must have.
