Regarding Shadow/Sin tanks...

i realize the numbers alone may fall short of telling the whole story and factors far beyond numbers alone contribute to these things. I simply remain concerned because other changes in this game were made in the past for the sake of evening up numbers and were later found to be poor changes.

I appreciate that future changes will be looked at to adjust things further but admitting that such things remain at issue essentially admits that the 1.3 changes are not expected to actually achieve the balance they desire, and apparently still seek, for tank classes. The statements support the facts that shadow/sins get strong shields, that those shields aren't doing what it takes right now to keep balance across the tank classes because of existing Operation mechanics, and that the developers KNOW this but are proceeding with the currently scheduled changes anyway. That is disappointing.

I appreciate the attempt to answer this question. The fact they even acknowledged it as a question speaks volumes about the feedback they've probably gotten on the issue. I don't like the answer and I think they executed this answer in a manner that left a lot to be desired, but it is a response.
