Less than 24 Hours remaining.

until (maybe) the Balance Apokalypse hits.

Will Mirage dodge the Nerfhammer yet again?

Will Boonbeast go extinct?

Will Medi Scrapper get his job back, so he can pay his bills?

Will we have to wait two more weeks?

All this and much more!

Tomorrow!

In Balance Wars 2!!!!

    Gem store update only because of snow? Boonbeast get's wrecked but mirage will still be the cancer it has always been. That's only because Anet has the dumbest kitten guy balancing it.

  • incisorr.9502incisorr.9502 Member ✭✭✭

    time to see if anet has any decency/honor or they're gonna feel peer pressured due to streamers rising up against a sub 50% win rate profession (mirage) and nerf it even more when it's already not good

    A balance patch tomorrow would be too early for anet standards and therefore a big surprise.

    I expect it to roll out either march the 4th or the 18th as this is the usual 3 months after their last balance patch which was released december the 11th.

    well last year there was a balance patch in dec followed by a patch in feb, won't be too surprising.

    What makes you so sure there will be a balance patch tomorrow? It was expected over the last 4 weeks, and did not happen.

  • all the balance patch will do is ensure more build diversity for mesmers in pve you're welcome.

    You all have strange expectations then because everyone expects a balance patch every week. But their release cadence for balance patches have been midseason for a while now and there's no reason to suggest they're moving away from release cycle.

  • Abazigal.3679Abazigal.3679 Member ✭✭✭

    I'd personnaly like an update on mesmer regarding distorsion. Make it unusable on finishing and it will still have some impact, though not changing anything on the build.

    If I remember correctly, there was balance patch before and in the middle of last season. In any case, last balance patch was 12/10. This is the longest we went without a balance patch since PoF release.

    Buffed necro axe 2 by 5%
    Reduced soulbeast bird swoop to 950 but gave it an evade
    Removed stability on evade from scrapper and gave it regen on evade
    Reduced the healing in celestial avatar but gave immob on staff swap instead of daze
    Reduced cooldown of ranger axe 3 by 2s and reduced aftercast by 0.05s
    Increased unblockable duration of all ranger abilities by 1s
    Halved the damage of pry bar

    This is what I expect to happen

    F u c k you mirage main. We are sick of your kitten about your carrying class being nerfed.

    and im sick of a bunch of horrible players who are too arrogant and ignorant and don't want to learn to play begging on the forum for unreasonable and undeserved nerfs

    you know what i saw earlier? I was watching a gw2 streamer and one of the people in the chat asked him for a build (For the class the streamer is playing) and you know what the streamer said? "Yeah its a viable build and it counters mirage but id rather just wait for them to nerf mirage" LMFAO. This is the type of people trying to peer pressure anet into nerfing mirage- I KNOW HOW TO COUNTER MIRAGE BUT I DON'T WANT TO. I WANT TO PLAY MY GREEDY BUILD AND JUST BEG THE DEVELOPER TO BUTCHER THE CLASS, XD

    what people that hate on mirage don't understand is that MIRAGES ALSO HAVE TO FIGHT OTHER MIRAGES , the fact that i have absolutely no problem with other mirages just goes to show that the class isn't invincible or unbeatable when you understand it

    errr no offense but mirage played correct will just walk over most classes, now im not that much into spvp lately neither im calling my self good.
    but condi mirage is just kitten..

    maybe condi mirage is fine if it didnt had the blinks or maybe if didnt had target break and 100 clones popping on your kitten or without stealth or without reflect or without constant evade frames which is even better then daredevil at somepoint.

    i mean i couldnt give a rats kitten if they nerf or not but in my eyes mirage just has been overdone, now i know how anet will handle it.
    lets nerf X and Y core traits so chrono and mesmer are completely useless and mirage has been finally normalized..

    I know how to counter Mirages too, type into local chat "ew gross" then let go of the mouse and keyboard and grab a drink, come back to your guy dead as the Mirage is calling you trash and telling you to learn to play.

    Honestly not looking forward to it. The only real balance problem that is especially huge right now is the sustain/defenses on mirage and maybe Soulbeast. All the other classes are pretty close in terms of usefulness, with minor buffs that could be given to Warrior and slightly more buffs given to Ele.

    History says that whenever the meta isn't completely horrible, the balance team usually makes things worse. My prediction is that they will nerf mirage, but they will buff something on another spec in a way that completely busts it and takes the meta in a worse direction.

    Not trying to be negative, just being real.

  • They're dropping another balance patch in the middle of a ranked Season? Oh boy.

    Remove Ranked DuoQ pls&ty

  • Elxdark.9702Elxdark.9702 Member ✭✭✭

    wow so hype for another % reduction in useless traits/skills and nerfs to weaver because why not.

    At this point you guys are either desperate or just dumb, you know most balance patches are insignificant to the meta unless they announced some rework or kitten.

    yep thats the problem. anet is afraid to do big changes, so nothing changes. than they see, nothing changed so they do further nerfs, by exactly meaningless amonuts, that w/e.

    We're mid season right now though.

    That Shaman predicts a patch today, he's almost always right about these sorts of things. Whether it's 100% a balance patch or not remains to be seen. But the last balance patch was December, we're mid season. I think the stars are aligning.

  • Imagine being so behind schedule that your next patch comes 3 weeks after a patch that already contained zero content, stretching the delay between balance patches to nearly 3 months, and that even your gemstore team, the one team that is reliable, fails to put out something new and you have to resort to putting a bunch of old garbage on sale.
