All this tells me is that too many folk playing msh/WL are relying too much on pounce to kill squishies when they should up their game when it comes to doing a proper rotation. While i agree that MSH get the bad end of the stick, my engie is not sympathetic to it as you could essentially spam leap and kill the majority of squishies fleeing without actually really engaging. This does give certain classes an advantage though like shammies/RSH vs WL(no pet) or AM vs MSH but amusingly so MSH rarely did well verses AM at least when it came to 1v1 even in the past anyway, only mentioning that as it to which i assume 1v1 is at the core of a lot of why people are mad about the changes.

TLDR: leap and pounce was being relied on probably too much without using a proper rotation to fight, this is my best guess as to why they made this change.

I don't know about MSH but I don't know of any WL who would use Pounce except right at the start, it's not like they pounce on someone who is standing right next to you

I don't post much but if the rationale for nerfing pounce was due to pet damage being buffed then surely keeping the damage on any kind of loner setup would be perfectly sensible, not much keeping the green plague of shammies and rsh in check now.

mSH ...
I admit I don't know much about mSH but I still remember the class has a bow... Therefore you could dismount running people with your bow, transform into your running testicle form and bounce at them...
I also admit that this means mSH needs to push more then 3 buttons.... Don't know if this is too much for most mSH players
