Nice to see I'm not the only one who was discouraged by this change.
As far as the "run to the center" strategy, our original raid group was melee heavy and there was a real problem with two people cleansing the deletion. Now we have more ranged but by then we'd developed a different strategy. Any tips on "run to the center" positioning for 8m HM?
The only problem that I have with the change is that it doesn't encourage multiple solutions.
Big agree here. Just because a strategy isn't the most common or what the dev's had in mind, they should always try to keep all non-exploit solutions valid across patches, especially this long after release.
