Introducing new souls when Trion has failed to balance the current ones, adding levels which of course means more stats and new gear as well which will also have to play in the balancing act. Now you will have to deal with not only higher ranks but higher levels. As if new 50's weren't already screwed.
So we get great news in they are working on pvp content, wtf good is it when the game will be more unbalanced than ever? I was just getting back into the game again, and while there are still balancing issues it is probably as close to balance as it has been in quite a while. Stormlegion is a pve exclusive expansion for sure, not because it does not add pvp content, but because it disregards any affect the new pve additions will have on pvp.
In the end I am tired of chasing the carrot, as a casual player every time I get close to the carrot Trion pulls it further away making players like me perpetual fodder for people who have more time to play. I get rank 6, they move it to rank 8, I get rank 8 they change it to 40 and put me back at 37 or whatever it was. Get 40 and working on getting geared up......now this. Before the elitist come in and say MMO=Grind, I disagree. MMO's devs that suck too much to create meaningful content need grind to keep people with A.D.D. interested.
