It is a sad day for those of us who have enjoyed the Hybrid for the past 10 months, seeing as these changes made it impossible to achieve. The nerfs as of the 14th officially gutted(see what I did there?) the Terminal Velocity spec =( Although I guess we shouldn't be too surprised with the numbers it was putting out on the PTS... It was fun while it lasted though, yeah?
However, unless Tactics/AP gets its nerfs rolled-back and receives real buffs(ones tied to High-Energy Cell/Cylinder realistically), I fear that purists(full Tactics/AP) will find themselves using an un-playable spec; not allowed in the competitive scene whatsoever.
Here's to the future; may it be brighter than what is currently on the horizon for VG/PTs.
It's a shame. The VG's had some great hybrid builds destroyed by BW/EA/QQ-ing. It sucks.
R.I.P. Iron Fist
R.I.P Carolina Parakeet (one of my favs)
R.I.P. Terminal Velocity (I really hope this does not happen and it's still viable in 2.0...there's still hope)
