Basically the nerf threads about a specific profession will stop when it will be no more deemed a threat by the average playerbase ( average skill level) of every other class , to mention that at this stage even being considered an annoyance is enough to warrant a long list of nerf threads.
Prior to GW2 launch during August 2012 , all the GW fanbase could be found on the fan site GW Guru if I am not wrong, it was quite good, one feature that I particulary enjoyed was the insta temporary ban of whoever started a nerf thread just for the sake of complaining, something the GW2 forum desperately needs given the current climate as the GW2 forum has devolved in just another typical MMO forum.
Dear GW2 players...I have a simple question : if you ask to nerf that aspect of that profession, the very aspect that makes that profession a threat to the one you're playing...how exactly the nerfed profession will be able to compete against your profession afterward?
Few examples here :
-People ask to nerf pet damage , longbow damage , reduce multipliers , reduce boon application...then what the ranger supposed to do? how it can survive and kill your class?
-People ask to nerf sword evades of weaver...now we have a low HP class at melee range with no other form of protection against aoe/range pressure other than some 2-3k healing
-People ask to nerf blocks on guardian...how is the class supposed to survive pressure given its low HP?
-People ask to nerf warrior sustain...how the class supposed to be played at melee range when its sustain is already mediocre in mediocre hands?
Looking at thieves..I realize the scope of nerf threads......there is no scope other than knocking a profession out of viability
Pettiness.....Hypocrisy.....Short sighted are the only words that come to mind whenever I read the GW2 pvp forum, it's truly a shame that the majority of players can't see anything outside the boundaries of their own ego
