Combat logs will be out soon. It's a shame that they won't be out until after the changes go through.

I'd be interested to see the REAL numbers on AP vs Pyro currently in PvE. None of these spreadsheet theories, but actual testing.

At least in the future, it will be very easy to debunk all of the theories we keep tossing back and forth w/ hard data.

I personally do VERY well Advanced Prototype. Can i do as much damage as a GOOD player on pyro? of course not but there is more to pvp then doing damage. I suggested they added a snare with retractable blade and they did just that. The snare is going to help out the tree tremedously.

As pvp YES!

I played AP while pve-lvl (1-45) and with Mako it was nice, got the balance in heat and keept myself up and running, then when starting playing pvp i got so frustraded cause it was a joke! Then went C Parkeet wich was ok, but after trying Hybrid Pyro i was sold and started to after some training placing myself top 3 with 8-10 medals every match.
Ok i feel abit squzzie som times but if u learn to play that style and realize that your not a tank itīs both fun and elite in all ways. Have tryed duell some as well to see how my skills go when not focus is to win or some sniper desids to interupt i relly felt hard as rock

I love BH PT itīs fun and sometimes i almost feel sorry for my opponents, thinking they got a shot in one vs one in pvp!

Question is if i need to respecc totally cause the heat problems or if i can keep on when 1.2 hits?
Iīm setting the rules of the game, follow me or be lost in space!

What good is dps spec with no burst, a mara dumps all over this spec tree for both burst and sustain. If flame thrower has auto crit set up like a shadows harnessed shadows with force potency it would still stink due to the nature of the skill. Not to mention the cylinder itself that goes with spec is poor and incredibly unimaginative.

AP - (played well) gets me to the top of ALL the PvP leaderbords I play....

I am sorry I suspect, most peeps have been playing all wrong.

You have to balance melee combat with the 10m flame bust spam and Protection dart, Sonic....

OOps I forgot to mention I pvp with pve gear - LOL

Sure 1v1 against a well spc'd player you will go down, but you can last even in PvE gear.

AP - will not be nurfed...
AP - is **** hot when guarded / healbotted with.

Oh, I'm sorry, did you think that when we said that the other trees were better, it was because we WEREN'T at the top of the chart as AP? Because that's not the case.

And it still doesn't change its shortcomings currently. In 1.2, however, it may be closer.

But you PvP w/ PvE gear, so I think most people can take your experiences w/ a grain of salt, as you are not a serious PvPer. This discussion was never about topping some silly leaderboards that nobody actually cares about.
