all i hear is "whaaawhaaa i cant win so nerf the other side whaaahwaaaah" want a cookie and a paper towel to dry those eyes?
"Make us identical by bringing our side up to par" is not at all "nerf the other side."
It's not a good thing when in every case where there's a discrepancy, the discrepancy favors the same side consistently over the other. It's a silly thing to oppose. Balance is not a bad thing.
I don't understand, though. We've got half of the community here complaining without end that the game is doomed, and the other half feverishly trying to justify that there are no problems. Maybe we can meet in the middle, and acknowledge that the game has problems, and maybe resolve to see them fixed instead of firmly placing ourselves between the status quo and an improved future product?
