Condi rev was keeping in check these 2 button condi builds like condi thief and burn guard that can 100-0 you instantly if you dont have a decent amount of cleanse. Now other easier side node builds like core guard, renegade, ranger ( with passive pet ccs , passive dmg) will take its place. Condi rev was actually not hard to fight if u knew how the class worked, i was able to beat condi revs on a power thief, power rev, symbolbrand, power soulbeast. A bad condi rev would still die very fast to thief +1 aswell cuz u could easely steal into their block and kill them pretty easely. Some side node builds r legit not killable even if the player is rly bad cuz its way too tanky, like core ranger with protect me and passive pet ccs, they just afk on node while the pet is taxing your health and you can lose a 1v1 because you got hit by a random cc that interupts your heal.
It was a healthy side node build aside from the fact that it was shutting down some condi builds too hard which they should have nerfed res uptime by 20-30% and not 60% making it a low damage build, low moblity and also low sustain.
We all know there is not enough cleanse in this game and condis are way overtuned to have any sort of counter play against them, alot of condi builds barely have an animation and once u get condi bombed, even if u heal u still gonna die cuz condis are ticking theres just not enough counterplay. The fact that condi rev became a side noder just proves how broken condis are in this game.
I hope you all will enjoy pvp with tons of burn guards and condi thieves, and symbol core guard, rangers and renegades as side noders dropping aoe on node while being afk. The truth is once u nerf something, other things that are far more toxic will become meta and take its place.
