    In a way balancing of elite spec and what they added in need major "locks" base off of the core classes. So a FB should not add as much stab / support because core gurd gets a lot of build in support / stab. Also scorge should not get as much boon corruption and aoe as core necro gets a lot of boon corruption and aoe. This IS an issues of power leap (i would not call this creep because it was way more of a power boots then a small jump "creep") destroying a game type for many classes and nothing more. Gurds and necro where very viable wvw classes but where not the end all be all but FB and scorge ARE end all be all wvw classes.

  • This thread is so symptomatic of WvW these days.
    People confuse difficulty with power.
    They don't understand that is what meta is.
    Meta is builds that are:

    • Easy to learn
    • Does well even if played poorly
    • Allow anonymity in your squad
    • Mistakes being less punitive

    It is what you steer new players and bad players towards.
    Meta is more in the public eye now because there is a higher degree of new and bad players.

    That is why you tell players to go FB over Mesmer, because you expect them not to handle veil, portal and the rotation spam. It is why you favour bread and butter damage over the glassy classes and it is why you rarely see classes that require self-sufficiency or leadership to fullfill their role. If someone asks for how to play those roles they are simply not ready to play them.

    People whine about this because they don't understand it. They are not experienced enough or good enough.

  • Let's drop one more truthbomb:

    Bad players ask to nerf classes based on popularity.
    Good players ask to nerf mechanics based on power.
    This is because they see and understand the mechanics and their relative power in balance. The bad players do not see or understand these things.

    Anet balance base off of class popularity you know. As well as mechanics popularity. Anet has a real fear of spreading out effects that players use the class for such as giving other classes support stab ending the use of FB comply.

    The mechanic problem is stab as a boon how hard it is to get out side of gurd classes and even how much stronger it is on a FB elite spec.

    Other mechanic problem is death shroud on necro classes and how the lack of the DS on scorge put its above a build in balancing that throws the class balancing as a mages class.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.
