You probably have the best response I've seen in any thread about nerfing smash or about pvp in general. In all honesty the ones who complain are the under geared new to pvp players or those who have not spent time ripping and modding gear.
Full WH and EWH with mods ripped and moved around. I still dont like getting hit for 30-40% life in 1 sec. Combine that with 2 monkies jumping to you... well 1 sec death. I should at least last 1.5 sec with the ability to do 1gcd
They need to just not have smash insta crit and change the bubble to fill more resolve
