Let me preface in saying I was in favor of some nerfing on the legendaries… Some gradual nerfing…
There is no reason to swing the nerf sledgehammer so hard. Its supposed to be gradual, because when its not, its really infuriating to the other spectrum of players who didnt feel a nerf was even necessary. If you do it little by little, you wont have to zig zag with the buffs and nerfs (Ghalt comes to mind) and wont anger an entire spectrum of users on the other side. Right now is a time for finesse, especially with a bleeding playerbase like we have.
As someone said in another thread “Even if big changes are warranted, you NEVER want to see things like 25%>3% (holy shit!), 500>2000, or 120>45 in a change log. You want to balance things, not neuter them.”
This strikes really true. I want to stop being embarrassed playing this game. It was hard enough with all the bad marketing and optimization issues, but as of last night it’s to the point where I deny playing it at all when my friends ask if I still am.
