There is a huge difference between asking genuinely for balance and....constantly and vehemently asking for nerfs . The main point to remember is that those looking for balance are searching for healthy competition to test themselves and by contrast those who are only able to ask for nerfs day in and day out , simply speaking are really not looking for any challenge.
While balance issues will always be present in a MMO, it is also true that a problematic class/spec is not necessarily a balance issue , not every spec and class should be a "walk in the park" to deal with and this may be an extreme statement but ...a healthy competitive environment is one lacking "rock-paper-scissor" sort of balance, the same one promised by the devs...the same one still missing from the game
If you look at each nerf thread for each class and you summarize all the nerf requests in a single list, you realize that the name of the class is the only thingpeople did not ask to remove.
And the questions remains : how professions A-B-C..... supposed to fight yours?; when it comes to remove things...everybody a dev....they are : platinum+, legendary, gods, AT winners....basically game designers minus the actual professional title and experience; if we then ask these "devs" how to balance each class..they will answer with : "I am not a dev"........
I'll be honest; to me it seems that people really play a MMO like it is some single player RPG with multiplayer where they are the heroes and the whole game is populated with NPC : defeat is not possible,it's unacceptable and nothing can get close to their "power level"
The devs "mostly" ignoring the PvP/WvW forum comes as no surprise, would they consider every single nerf thread....there would be no GW2, there would be no game to load on the server because everything would have no sustain and would do no damage.
Although I do believe that Anet would be more open to communication if the playerbase would be more honest with itself : have the courage, integrity and honesty to recognize the strengths of their class...before pointing fingers but right now every thread prove otherwise....hypocrisy runs rampant , dishonesty is the norm.
