Simply incorrect. Ice does more damage for short fights, and often lock fights where fire does more damage for long fights.
Wrong let's say my ice blast does 12k and my fire bolt does 8k. I get 3x fire bolts to 1x ice blast which means potentially I'm hitting 24k in the same time ice blast takes to cool down. Ice is only good for support class and your top hit nothing more...
Bending the truth. You use fire best dps skill and ice worst. I never said Ice does more damage in long fights what are you not getting? Lets say shards is 15k blast is 12k. Bolt is 9k and storm is 12k(generous). Ice would be doing a lot more damage in a quick 10-20 second fight where once fire has enough time to keep recasting there quick skills they out dps.
try it out. I can guarantee you that if you have to do more then one hit a fire mage would outdps any ice mage. If its a one shot lock battle then an ice mage may put up a competition(still doubtfull since firemages have insta firebolts).
I have no clue why you would think that ice mages are superior in 10-20 second fights. In a 20 second fight ice mages can do at least two shards and blast. If ice mages are superior with 2 hits then that would mean they have better dps in general, so also in long fights. Facts have proven that's not the case.
