Incorrect sims. Every single number it gave was proven wrong over time. I agree that shadows aren't the worst dps, but they aren't higher than snipers and such. Posting that same link everytime doesn't make it any less false.
I know logic is hard, but at least try to understand that if you want to say something is "fact" or "proven wrong" you have to give evidence and data to support your assertion.
Balance shadows do perfectly fine damage. I have seen plenty of data both in sims and parses to support this. I have seen no data to support your claims that they don't.
Data you don't like > no data at all
