Never said it was but when removing the only instant burst we had we depend on blood fear more to set up our cast time spells that is all that is remaining.
If they're going to make other classes cast CC why shouldn't Warlocks have to do it?
Most of Warlocks DoTs are instant anwyay.
How much damage do a warlock dot do? Exactly..
Corruption tick for ~2300 damage as Demo.
Im not saying warlock or any other class need / not need instant CC, Im saying that classes who are already performing poorly, that have long rampup and non <-> very limited burst need it more than lets say a warrior, SP, due to their burst (just as example).
Im in favor of toning down instant CC, especially AoE one but it needs to be done with some thought which BLZ isnt known to do considering their knee jerk nerfs that end up totally missguided most often.
Also, nerfing interrupts need to be looked at, hard casting will be retarded to pull off with just a change to instant CC without looking at silences and interrupts in general.
