Keep grinding & looking to improve is the ONLY way to improve.
A well played rogue can ALWAYS do some things to counter what the opponent is doing. Even if you're facing a hard counter, a well played rogue can work around it. When you have this much experience, as i have on the rogue class, it's a massive factor in being able to do the things which helps counter your hard counter.

A lot of players who never played before WOTLK have no understanding of this game or its potential depth. They are told that 3v3 arena is all that matters in understanding skill and they follow this idea pretty blindly.
Find whatever works for you in order for you to improve, it doesn’t have to be what someone else does.
You can take advice from other people but you gotta recognize and find what works for yourself.
Rogue are very much duelists and combo heavy. There's many different combo and variations of the same combo, and interesting mechanical exploits, which gives each rogue player a lot of freedom to choose what sequence to use at any given times.

Rogue PvP Mechanics

Rogue is a stealthy class renowned for being filled with outlaws and betrayers. If we are called Silent Shadows, that is for a good reason. We’re sneaking behind the targets, surprising the enemies with a combination of ambushes, stun locks, and poisons, occasionally stealing their gold, before killing them and vanishing back into the shadows. But to do that well, it is necessary to understand how the rogue class is designed. For this reason, we created this series of guides to talk about the rogue mechanics: energy management, combo points, and PvP rotation.

Part 1: Energy
Part 2: Combo Points
Part 3: DPS Rotation

In-depths PvP Guides

At Silent Shadows, we believe that in order to succeed in arenas or PvP in general, one must master the fundamentals of the rogue class. Basic mechanics from stealth and detection to weapon swaps and poison management are capable to distinguish an excellent rogue from a merely decent one. In this section, we want to provide you with everything you might need to come as prepared as possible for all PvP environments.
