He clearly said it is a known problem that they are going to be working on.
Going to be working on means latter. The Nerf is now. So he's saying DO NOT USE A SHADOW TANK NOW. They are worthless until we balance bosses, which isn't happening in this patch or any time soon (as there is no eta, and they are not even sure how they need to approach it)
