Unfortunately I am the bearer of bad news today. It looks like the Combat Team will need some more time to finish your questions, so we will be posting these next week. While it may seem like a quick and easy thing to answer these questions, the team wants to make sure you receive thorough answers, which does take time. I understand this is not ideal, but we appreciate your patience and apologize for the delay!
If it takes more time to get us a detailed response including data backing the developer point of view and a list of possible changes and their ramifications, that's fine. Please do not disappoint. If after taking extra time to provide answers that amount to the nonsense Sages and Scoundrels received, the community is going to flip out.
