This is far from an scientific analysis but my personal opinion is that spvp weaver is awesome. In the hands of a great player, it is quite powerful, to the point where I can see why Anet does not buff it. Sure most players (and that includes me; I claim only mediocrity), will get reasonable but not stellar performance from it. Plus the weaver game play is just so much fun-- staff aside: staff is just horribly boring to me. (Side note, it wasn't until I realized I could do non-staff that I finished leveling my ele all those years ago and now it is my beloved main.)
Yes, ele can be frustrating and it feels like we get no love but I can see glimmers of why we don't get buffs. It's actually quite potent when you are firing on all cylinders. That said, sure, give us mediocre players some love!
