Given the frequent balance patches, this patch is like 30 out of 100 at the very best.
1. Support core guardian has been out for quite a while and its healing output is quite insane. Yet only war support is nerfed. And the 100+th nerf on fullcounter?...
2. The war banner bug?
3. downstate and ress traits are not touched.
4. Many builds with low effort yet high reward are untouched: condi thief, condi soulbeast, condi trapper soulbeast.
5. The bug on rev build templates? Also been there for ages.
On another note: should ANET balance's focus on MAT or high level ranked? I think it might be better to balance based on high level ranked. Because the majority of games are ranked games. And in ranked only duo que is allowed. Uncoordinated games are very different from MAT games. Therefore, the meta on the metabattle might be slightly misguilded.
PS: tried rene SB. The seven shot reduces from 4k to 2.5k. So I am just wondering whether there are other undocumneted nerfs on rene~
PS2: I also knew support guard would not be touched., its just sad.
PS3: Can devs also say more about the matchmaking? Is it true that the total amount of game played also influence match making? If that is the case, please fix it, because you are punishing ppl playing the game, which is absurd. If not, then please make it clear that total amount of games is not included. Then what about the number of suspension? report received? Can you please clarify?
