Let me spin you a tale, of a time before time, where celeeles roamed the plains, and berserker amulet was still used. Where players counted cooldowns, and evades weren't seen 30 times a minute. A simpler, more wholesome time. But all good things must come to an end. Deep in the bowels of arenanet colin crafted his cursed concoction, brewing together hatred and rage into his pessimi opus, and once his vile work was complete he fled, leaving us with his twisted creation, and so Heart of Thorns was launched. With it came the beginning of the end.
With heart of thorns came a plague of braindrain never before seen to the mists. Bunker chronos lounged on their thrones, eating the foul grapes of pips. Hordes of adrenal health berserkers, bunker druids with one shot pets, and 6k auto revs ran wild, while our brothers in wvw were getting 1shot by epidemics and cors. The beginning of the dark ages. Fast forwards to today and weve entered a new era of oddities. The action packed combat we all know and love eroded by time into the twisted amalgamation we trudge through today.
I ask you o forum goer mine, do you enjoy the current state of pvp. Do you feel a rush being repeatadly immobd by a CI mesmer, forced out of melee by a scourge, one shot by 2 revs, or outlasted by even the most mediocre of scrapper. As patch after patch drops and population dwindles to age, it seems time and time again we push away from the ideal "wow I he outplayed the hell out of me!" to "wow this is really boring!". The game may be more "balanced" these days but its certaintly not more fun, at least for me. I urge arenanet to look at the current state of both pvp and wvw and think to themselves "is this really fun to play?".
