This could very well be one of the dumbest things I've seen come out of an MMO design team. The person responsible for this mechanic design should have all of their work audited because they might end up being responsible for half of the idiotic things implemented in this game.
This mechanic change is wrong on so many levels it's mind boggling. Most notably, it removes the puzzle aspect that the minefield was designed around and replaces it with a coin flip (left or right) for success or failure. Secondly it relies on the most overly used boss mechanic in the game, because lets face it, all tanks want to have their character and camera smashed against a wall and have a screen full of zoomed in boss crotch the entire fight.
Sheesh... who thinks up this garbage?
Probe droid crotch? lol? You clearly have never done that fight so i dont know why you QQ.
The fact that the encounter is still easy or easier than Hard mode is the worse issue out of it.
