All I wanna say is This patch was and balance change is much needed. It might not be perfect, and I don't think anybody should be expecting it to be. But it's a good start, /everything/ needed to get toned down. Point blank period. It's no secret that there was power creep and people have been getting carried by it, including myself. Abusing low cooldowns skills and passives giving high returns/damage, high boon output and healing ETC ETC.
Just because it's meta doesn't mean it's skillful or healthy.
So, to all those who are fussing and inferring you know everything-- If you're /REALLY/ as good as you think, then these changes shouldn't bother you. It's objectively the same game with the same skills, and same mechanics. It's just gonna be more areas for counter play aka you'll have to LEARN to adapt.
