i still dont get why humans cant be hunters. i thought if anything, they'd be one race that definately could be.
and gnome warriors just doesn't make sense! gnomes as main tanks against massive dragons!

Gnome-anything-that's-not-a-caster doesn't make sense. And yeah, I've been wondering that, too. Why humans can't be hunters. Oh well, this is WoW we're talking about, it appears to have it's own definition for "logic".

Really they should be, but in the end it all came down to balance and the humans had too many available classes. So they removed hunters so that humans only had 6 classes and it balanced the class selection.

[Humans & Trolls: 6
Dwarfs, Night Elves, Undead & Orcs: 5
Gnomes & Tauren: 4]

I wasn't happy with it myself. When I first came to the game and knew nothing about Warcraft I wanted to be an elf mage :(

i think shifting paladins and shamen to the opposing sides was also one of the dumbest decisions ever. :(

It was the lamest cop-out ever. They couldn't figure out how to make shamans as useful as paladins in PvE without handing them the same abilities, so they just said: Let's give pallies to both sides!

Never been truly impressed with draenei and blood elves either

it's just when i planned to move to the horde, my first thought was "awesome, i'll never have to pvp shamen ever again!"
then they announced it, and i cried. sure, paladins are useful, but it was like you said, a quick cheap attempt at balancing the game.

I guess I can understand the reasoning behind that, but I don't agree with it. Fuck balance, it should be logical. :P

That's what I thought when it was announced, too, but I guess I'm not complaining since I have a lvl 48 belfadin nowadays. :P

It should've been:

Alliance: High Elves - Mage, Warrior, Rogue, Hunter, Priest

Horde: The Broken (i.e. Draenei) - Warrior, Rogue, Hunter, Shaman, Warlock

IMHO
