No nerf to explosive entrance? Who exactly did this balance patch?

The nerfs to holo are a literal joke. Explosive entrance is one of the main issues with holo and you didn't even touch it? Who exactly do you have working on this? Its either an engi main or someone who plays 5 signet warrior... oops. Also, no nerf to thief dmg? I know for a fact that at least some people in Anet watch streams, you see what is absolutely broken, why not think about that? Why not ask say 20-30 of the upper tier players for feedback before a patch? DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!

    "Gorgeous" lion warclaw mount skin anyone? All the resources were used to create that beauty so we should be grateful for the scraps we get in sPvP.

    Pretty certain no WvW player ever would want that mount over balance changes in WvW.

    Im not sure whom its for, but its what wvw got instead of the 'content' given to pvp.

    Imagine if WvW got balance changes and PvP got a reduction in resources required for tiered armor as its content?

    It is a joke.

    I actually felt insulted or like someone had slapped me or stolen something from me when I read the patch notes this morning.

    I mean... this is just trolly ridiculous at this point that Explosives 1/3/1 Grenade Kit wouldn't be tended to.

    I think likewise. Anet really needs to look after the great balance that GW2 has for an MMO, whilst grasping the whole thing with traitlines and their complexities.
    As far as I reckon, specs should be greatly simplified for the sake of balance. It'd still be more mind-boggingly complex than the more balanced predecessor, Build Wars 1
    lol
    good day

    They got feedback from top players, for Example Floody, Drazeh, ...

    it is not a ballance patch, just a hotfix you dummies ;)

  • the damage on thief is not an issue... its entire design was a "hit and run" build with big burst and big mobility while being squishy... thief just has an absurd amount of survivability now which is the main issue. I wont lie tho the holo nerfs were absolutely trash, healbreaker makes up for the might stacking loss, and the "2 second to 1.5 second" blind was the worst nerf ive seen for holo.

    feedback is not the issue brah, people were sending entire pages of pages of feedback and there is nothing to show for it.

    If EE gets to stay how it currently is, then Reckless Dodge and Bound need serious buffs.

    Come on, people do remember the days where you could dodge spam with 25 might and hit for 4k unblockable damage, surely you do.

    Willing to help with anything Revenant related.

    At least in that situation you had to hit the dodge AoE, not have a free use at any time infinite duration version.

  • Imagine thinking WvW is even slightly relevant when it comes to sPvP. Get rid of explosive entrance. Its simple. Also, Floody and Drazeh are only two players who are both on EU. That is NOT 20-30 people. They're also engi mains, so yeah, of course they're going to not want their class nerfed.

    Considering that they just completely reworked the explosives trait line and made the trait intertwined with explosive entrance, that's definitely not going to happen soon. They could nerf the damage, but "getting rid of it" is not in the cards.
