So a new expansion is coming out, very exciting times.
Just want to remind people this is an MMORPG and new expansions AFTER time not so exciting anymore with the changes that come with it.
PvP use to be a very balanced mode, but now due to more people doing something they not suppose to do, they do more damage now as well, etc.
Some classes don't get the luxury, like Warriors.
I noticed now they have a lot of remove immobilization, which is the HARD counter to playing against a Warrior in PvP. Now they just remove it like nothing. But this did not fix them, just because they can remove it with ease now, they never got the dps they did before back. So they free to do whatever but... They pose no threat because the BUFFS every other profession got was wayy better than "Warriors can get out of immobilization with ease"
I come back and see this and makes me laugh, yet think GW2 is following the same 'new expansion' bane all MMORPGs have no yet figured out.
Everybody is going to do whatever another person can do eventually.
Who knows, theres could be a stealthy warrior, every profession could have access to stealth.
Another profession can do portals, maybe a time-traveler elementalist.
Sounds cool right?
In the long ruin it ruins the vibe of the game.
Short term gains for long term pain.
Thats my worry.
Please make profession in line with what its suppose to do. Only few were suppose to be able to stealth. Only few were suppose to be good at healing, etc etc.
I don't want
"I really played guardian because I like to play as healer, but this new expansion this guardian spec is really good at dps, now everyone wants me to play dps, not fun anymore"
"I really played thief because I want to sneak through certain parts on dungeons, but now everyone can stealth, not fun anymore, and they made me a healer, I did not play to heal"
"I did not play thief to be a monk aka healer, I played thief to sneak through dungeons, I wish I was an elementalist time traveler, they do sneaks and portals"
"I really played warrior because I like to tank, smash and in melee, now I'm turned into a breakbar person, not fun anymore"
"I really played engineer because I have so many immobilization, knockdowns, CC, but now as holosmith it feels like core warrior, I did not play engineer to feel like a core warrior, I'm upset I get out CC'ed by warriors, my class was suppose to be the class that does CC, not fun anymore"
If everyone is going to do what everyone else use to ONLY be able to do.
Mine as well just merge all the professions, and let people freely swap to whatever they want.
Because if you played Engineer when GW2 came out because it was full of CC, now its warrior. Makes no sense that your playstyle is now all sudden another profession.
Please please, keep profession specific stuff, profession specific.
