Back to back double PS+BR combo is OP and can drop someone in blazing speed, and that is not balanced in PvP.

The Opportune Strike and Combat Trance nerf (bonus excludes Blade Rush in 2.0), and Zen nerf are meant to lower DPS during PS+BR spam combo, by making focus cost higher and BR not getting 10% damage bonus from Opportune Strike.
Here is the thing. That new skill does not come come close to making up for the loss of zen. It's a strange skill which the class didn't need and because of constant focus starvation brings very little to the table. Before you could spam BR if zen were up, now you can't spam it, period. Combat is presently pure concentrated crap which is so far behind focus it's just not worth the bother. The people balancing classes are completely incompetent.
