    Default Scott Hartsman Eurogamer Interview

    Didnt see anyone else post this yet, below is a quote from a eurogamer interview with scott hartsman posted yesterday. I almost cried when I read it.
    Eurogamer: With patches comes the hotly contested area of class balance. What's causing class imbalance in Rift at the moment?
    Scott Hartsman: It depends on where you look. In general things are pretty good. We don't have anybody who's an order of magnitude off where they're supposed to be, as has happened in basically every game in the history of MMOs.
    ....
    We've got a particularly troublesome ability on Saboteurs that's causing them to do better damage in the game than anybody else.
    ....
    Eurogamer: The Saboteurs are going to be brought in line - that damage wasn't intended?

    Scott Hartsman: No - yeah. In practice what it's doing is adding far more charges to their target than the ability was supposed to add.
    Better
    damage
    in
    the
    game
    than
    anybody
    else.

    Do these guys even have level 50 characters in their own game yet?

    They probably do, because as devs they can be instant max level with a simple command in order to test max level issues.

    This pretty much sums up the entire issue, devs don't understand their own game. Sabos doing more damage than anyone else? Seriously?

    This is the same guy who said they haven't seen any cookie cutter builds in Rift. Are you honestly surprised by this?

    He kind of reminds me of the BP CEO during the oil disaster. Trion will probably replace him and not let him do interviews anymore.

    sigh

    BM/Champs could do almost twice the sustained DPS that a Sabo could do before the patch (and after...).

    GSB: 5/5, RoS: 4/4, HK: 10/11
    GP: 4/4, DH: 4/4

    The devs are idiots. Either they don't actually test their own **** or there's just a major agenda being passed in by project directors. SUBMIT INGAME FEEDBACK AND BUG TICKETS. FLOOD THEM AND MAKE THEM LISTEN!!!

    This is a childish approach equivalent to banging pots and pans after being unfairly grounded. I'm not happy about it either, and if you think they're idiots then you should play another game. Idiots don't suddenly become smarter. If you instead think they are reasonable people that lack experience and data, and eventually will come around, all you can do is be patient.

    I really wish that devs would publish where they think numbers are at for classes.

    here's how TRION can make us happy.

    Let Rogues have the option of transfer to a Warriors.

    You have a lvl 50 Rogues and unhappy? Submit request to TRION and they turn you into a lvl 50 Warrior.

    That's all we are asking.

    Why in the world would anyone want to play a Melee DPS Rogue when a Warrior Melee can DPS a Rogue anyday and can wear HEAVY ARMOR!!!!

    Oh yea, we can stealth and hide if we go SIN. THANKS!

    Nice work, TRION

    There are players that know this game better then the devs, have these guys not scene mages or warriors dmg.
    They should have made the sab a dot class, all sab charges do there dmg over 6-8 seconds.
    Would have been great for pve as a cleric who likes to react and wouldn't have nerfed pve.

    I think they need to add arena to the game, and the reason is, it'd help them balance the game.
