VDAC.2137 Posted May 15, 2019 Share Posted May 15, 2019 Nerfing seems to me a very negative way to go about balancing; I am never happy to hear a spec I don’t play is nerfed and when of my favorite specs is nerfed, or worse, drastically altered so I have to regear and change how I play or abandon the class entirely, well, that just sucks. And it seems to me to create toxic hostility on the forum if not elsewhere, with everyone crying for someone else’s class to be nerfs and others quite understandably upset by that and feeling the need to defend their spec for fear the complaints will be listened to.What if instead any balancing that was really needed was done by buffing? I’m happy for my teammates to perform better and who’s going to complain about a boost to their own abilities? GW2 does many things different than other MMO’s — why couldn’t this be one of them?Power creep! I’m sure would be one of the responses, but why is this such a bad thing? Periodically buff enemies as needed as well. I’d MUCH rather find out that a fractal/raid boss has a new attack or now deals more damage than have a spec I enjoy get crippled.Might it all be the same in the end? Perhaps, but to me at least the psychology would feel so much better. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
