    Default This doesn't exactly seem like balance attempts to me, Trion...

    Alright, quick summary. In the first month, warrios were unbalanced, next month they got nerfed down, mages became the new broken git, this month rogues are getting unbalanced thanks to the marksman changes. Rather than planning ahead when you do stuff, Trion, it seems like you just go with "flavor of the month" based on whatever way the majority of the imbalance complaints swing, while at the same time you completely overlook things that have been overpowered from the start, such as soul purge and shadow life, or the crazy chloromancer healing.

    I understand that you want to listen to the community, but it seems like you don't try so hard to come up with solutions on your own, just buff calling A because it sucks vs calling B C and D which in turn owns B C and D when you're done. Maybe what you need to do is to come up with long term solutions and not just aim for immedietly appeasing as many people as you can? You had a lot of data from the test shards, so there really is no excuse other than a poor choice in class balance.

    Sigh... I'll just keep my fingers crossed and hope for improvement, unless something else rells me in like Rift did.


    You need to look for shortcomings in yourself before you look for them in others. Otherwise, you're just a fat bluff and your word means nothing.

    Nobody is complaining about rogues, they are not overpowered.

    All you have to do, is look at the posting history of the OP to see the truth...

    No, but you really need to get out there more.

    SOmeoen said rogue is over powered? LOL. For so long it has been the opposite, they enhanced ranger but it still isnt where it should be.

    OP thinks MM is "op" because they hit decent now, more on par with other callings. Little did he mention that an MM is squishy as wet paper. To further give an example, a Pyro used to (and still is) one shot players WHILE being able to tank players / cc immunity. Basically the MM is a glasscannon that got more balanced.

    Considering WFs at 10-19 post patch is full of Ranger/Marksmen and Pyro the OP might have a point, it does seem alot of people have rerolled for some reason and i doubt its the look of the rogue pets.

    Shame really, I liked my marksmen/ranger but i will wait for them to be 'fixed' before playing again....
    With Faith and Fury I fight on.

    I would rather the devs base their changes primarily on their data mining. Sure players can point them in the right direction, some players will tend to whine, QQ saying hey nerf calling x souls a, b, c because I cannot beat them otherwise.

    If you look at other skilled PvP'ers they will say what are you talking about, take rogues, it is good that now you will see more rogues in PvP. Before their dps really was low, and their armor being leather did not offer them much protection like a plated warrior has.

    I played MM and my biggest crit ever was 1650 on a pig in Moonshadow - MM still sucks - the sense of relief i have since cancellng out of this imbalanced POS game is wonderful - no more anger,frustration and potential heart attack - if you keep going i take my hat off to you - youre a brave person in "Planes of Telara - Age of the Mana User"
