I am tired to death of all the criers on this forum, played this class for close to 5k hours, I then jump on another class say....necro and I cream (literally) your average ranger after only using seriously necro for less than 40 hrs, I can repeat the same feat while using a guardian..or even an ele...a warrior if I remember how to play it after some months left unused.
Problems arise when you face an experienced core ranger or soulbeast and even then I can stand my ground, not win maybe but not insta die either and I have far fewer hrs gameplay on these other classes and this is the problem : you must meet above average players to realized how dangerous a ranger can be but.....Other professions have builds which allow players to perform far above their actual skill level and still be a threat for experienced players.
I tried a minion scourge and core necro and my day, when I though I'd day I'd survive and even turn the tables on the assailant, so where all these wolf's tears come from in reality?
About pre nerf boonbeast and unblockable pre nerf sic' em ..ok I give people that, those builds were problematic but now? Negating a sic'em burst coming from your average ranger player ( one who didn't bother to count your dodges, stunbreaks and position) should be the easiest thing to do for anybody who spent at least 100 hrs in this game..not wvw...just this game
"But ranger can combine dmg and sustain!...blah blah blah"...Hold it! I can do the same on other professions roaming capable :

So suggesting that there is some miracle build out there for rangers and others have nothing....it's a blatant lie.
I am just venting atm honestly as I am generally tired of GW2 players constantly asking for nerfs while they play specs that themselves require nerfs if anything by following their same logic and yet they claim their class/build is balanced while everything else is powercrept
