The bottom line here is Trion have taking the fun out of playing a warrior in warfronts. I play for fun, I enjoy it.
Having had a blast grinding from rank 1 to 4 over the last 4 weeks with various builds, I was enjoying the game. Not doing top damage or getting most kills, simply surviving, gaining favor, dying occasionally as expected, getting up and going again.
Having reached rank 5 and 6 in the last week or so, kills are virtually non-existent, damage is pants unless you are lucky enough to get close enough to actually do some and all I see are warfronts totally dominated by MM's and mages.
If this is balance, I must be missing something. As has been said by others, nerfing anything is bad, class OP? buff the other classes to compensate, DON'T buff one class and then nerf the others.
Give me my fun back and while you are at it, put the Bahmi "cheer" back to pre-patch version as well
