    Default Escalation weekend is perfect reason why LW needs buff if anything.

    Ive been in about 5 games tonight where total kills between both teams combined was right around 10. 10+ minute games with majority of players R5-8, 5+ healers per team, multiple warriors, targets marked, players assisting, etc.

    Pretty much the most boring games ever win or lose. I can only imagine if LW was nerfed or cleansable would be maybe 2 kills per team from someone overextending and then just a fight for who runs stones better.

    Alternatively, could be interpreted as "I wish every class had a cheap LW."

    there was a dom on the other team, 2 actually if i recall, didnt notice any affect. the only people who died were those that overextended beyond the 5 healers range. i think defiant had 6 healers and a couple bards, guardian had 5 and a bard and chloro i think

    why on the forums do people jump to conclusions so much.. if u wanted to be taken seriously all you had to do is state your problem, then in a constructive manner say what you think can be done, if your jump out and blame 'this move is OP/not OP!!!' it turns into a QQ thread and loses near any and all meaning... yours is that with 5+ rank 8 healers no one dies... so buffing LW... the best incoming heal debuff in the game, would make killing easier, for teams lucky enough to be graced with a warrior specced into it (u realize it makes that specific soul then entirely NECESSARY in WFs for people to consistently be dieing). And decent incoming heal debuffs on more classes also could help, but not any more than that overall nerf to PvP healing already did.

    instead, since healers are far overpowered (in the 1v1 scale) so having more of them than the other team puts you at a great advantage, why not just dedicated spots in WFs to healers, make it so only around 3-4 dedicated ones get into a WF (maybe take into account low prestige ranks or something of that sort when deciding how many healers) but 3-4 healers are in every WF fixing that balance issue (no 5 P6+ healers dominating a WF) it also makes the healing souls then have an actual number to work off of (1 healer to 3 guys) for balance, instead of the idea of 'good enough' Trion is working off of at the moment. Take it or leave it but thats my idea of how best to fix a problem like that

    I'd rather they design warfronts so massive clumps of people don't throw their bodies into each other repeatedly and call it competitive.

    i dont expect much from you being from threesprings among other horrid servers, they are on our grouping and by far the worst players in the grouping. spawn camped a threespring premade "Flux" in black garden tonight with a pug and we had 0 healers.

    I've been a Dominator last weekend all the time because our precious guardians thought, bringing 50% healers will make for an easy ride. 2.5 Dominators (2 full, 1 hybrid) countered that quite good. Took us 5s to oom 'em and afterwards bash 'em all

    Besides, you might not believe it, but playing Dom isn't all that easy. It requires some knowledge and good decision making. I'm absolutely convinced, Medusa can make that happen.

    One Dom might not be enough but at least you can say you tried. Better than running against a wall, amiright?

    so you make healers wait in longer queues or force them to go dps? yea that would fly.

    This X 1000. Fights with more than 6 or 7 per side, I dunno, it seems like the complexity sort of just devolves.

    thats why wow kept it at 5v5 and even that led to 4dps insta-gib teams or outlast/drain teams.

    longer ques??? i wouldn't think over 1/4 of the population plays dedicated healing souls (correct me if im wrong)... if anything i would bet it would lead to shorter que times for people willing to switch over

    and even if over 1/4 of the people do play healers.. just readjust the number so its 2/7 of the poeple in WFs or something along those lines so that it does encourage people to play healers and keep a consistent number in WFs then balance healing numbers accordingly

    I've played in many clusters against people from many shards...

    ...not sure what that has to do with your crying that LW needs a buff because a WF was something other than a two shot killfest. You're obviously bored with any combat that lasts more than 3-6 seconds.

    I find that hilarious.
