So, I think most of us agree that points adjustments by CA has resulted in some fair improvements, but also in some very odd and unwelcome changes for AM. The general feeling, as far as I can tell, is that some nerfs were both excessive and unnecessary. The current state is certainly no disaster, but seems to be creating some issues.
After discussing my proposal (here, post #60), the admins have encouraged us to independently prepare some feedback for GW. If this post gets enough contributors/subscribers, we can send it to GW as a collective effort, and see if it produces any result on the next faq/fix round. There is currently another similar effort going on in the GK forum, which seems a good sign.
What this thread is about:
- politely list the major balance issues *introduced* up to CA and that we as AM players perceive as unnecessary
- politely list the major balance issues *not addressed* up to CA and that we as AM players perceive as necessary
What this thread is *not* about:
- asking for codex desiderata, i.e. we want platoons back, we want vdr for LR, etc. Only balance issues dealing with the current stuff. I have highlighted a few problems, but tried to avoid suggesting solutions, as I believe it is more beneficial to raise the points and let GW consider them.
- free salt. Only express your concern about *real* balance issues.
I have divided the topic below into some points (general points; AM points; FW points), which came to my mind after reading CA. These reflect my experience with the game so far. I have intentionally left out some points, as I feel it is unnecessary, unfair, and excessively pedantic to address every single change introduced, even if it is not perceived as exactly great. I'd like to focus on major points. It would be great to have more people contribute to this list, adjust it, and enrich it.
Let's say that anybody who contributes or 'likes' this first post agrees to be considered as a contributor (regardless of any actual proposal) and to have his/her forum nickname added to the list of subscribers that will 'sign' the document we'll send to GW at the end.
New deadline for proposals and revisions: 10 December.
