The slow realization

I appreciate you letting us know though. I’m also sure that you guys can appreciate the massive backlash you’re going to recieve, particularly from the Shadow Warrior community. First it was, “RDPS changes will go in at phase 2 on the PTS!”. This followed by, “Oh, just kidding, SW and SH changes will be phase 3, along with the tanks.” And now the bomb of, “Oh, ummm, all changes are being put on hold, let me studiously not mention the archers of the game, and avoid saying anything tank related like the bubonic-fucking-plague.”
Inspiring confidence in your customers, you’re doing it wrong actually.
It’s not as if we didn’t expect this. Why would you try and do a complete re-balance of the classes while concurrently putting out an expansion and all the testing that involves as well? I appreciate the enthusiasm, but that just seems mildly retarded. Testing things require controls, the more variables you toss into any test, the less likely you are to get accurate results, and yet somehow Mythic thought that changing everything all at once would be good, solid ground to base results on. Poor decision making. I’m sticking with you Mythic, because it is a fun game, and there really isn’t any decent PvP game out there, but come on, get over this JV f-ups.
