You know if as many people actually unsubbed as they claimed they were going to every time a new patch came out wow would have shut down long ago.

Lots of subs just like to vent and want to tell someone they are pissed and unsubbing but in reality they are just unhappy about the changes but will still play.

But seriously, to many kids in these games that blow a spazz because the game is being balanced and tweaked to work in designed theory. These same kids just need a old fasion spanking.

These changes are fine, and not very drastic at all, actually kind of mild. So relax, have a soda and eat a cookie, game will improve over time.

Where did you ever get the idea that this was anything but a game on rails? You'll play the way the devs want you to play or they'll change the game to make you.

I'll admit the metaphor was a little extreme, but why are they changing something that has no negative effect on the game? I would understand if said spec was broken and OP in pvp but it wasn't. I don't understand why they don't just make the other options more attractive to play as. It seems like they are needlessly limiting our options because its not the way "THEY" intended it to be played. If I didn't pay for the game it would be understandable as well. It is also probably worth mentioning that in starting this spec I meant more for pvp instead of pve, i understand there will always be cookie cutter specs in pve because you want the highest possible output in said class role, but in pvp pure numbers isn't everything.

This came out right when I found a build I liked 2/31/8, which i run in dark charge. Now I will need to take surging charge and die way too fast in warzones if I want to keep the idea of the build.

Do a bit more dps (pulling 20%-30% from my ***), but lose 150% armor buff. <sarcasm>Seems like a fair trade.</sarcasm>

The reason is simple.They designed all assasin specs purposely bad and they are killing hybrids to make assasin useless because sith inquisher is mostly played class. They will nerf sorcs in close future.They are buffing least played classes, nerfing most played classes and pretending they do opposite.

I don’t agree. We have nothing to complain about. Look at what happened to the smuggler and operative. Those players need to relearn their class. I think the Assassin class is probably the most well thought out. It’s the other classes which need tweaking. We appear to be underpowered, but that is a good place to be in the long run, as the major nurf bats will be elsewhere while we master our role.

Last, I think the biggest problems with assassins in general are: A, we’re too numerous, therefore a target for most angry players and B, a lot of impatient players are rolling this class for “sexiness” rather than learning how to play this class for effectiveness.

All said, we can use a little boost, WHICH MAY COME. A better side of the fence if you ask me….. And every operative and smuggler out there.

If and when the nerf happens, at least give us more survivability.... as deception with surging charge i'm like a glass cannon without the *********** cannon..... I can barley get sorcs/sages to half health before they shield/knock me back and then proceed to **** my face until i have to vanish..... Its really pathetic.. we need an actual opener and our abilities need to be looked over for change because right now it's just not working...... unless tank spec we are dps with i'd say the least survivability (other than OP's possibly its really close) with probably the 4th-5th highest dps capability... Ops>merc>sorc>mara>sin IMO. some of those depending on player and gear.. but either way we are a melee glass cannon with no cannon so please fix us....... melee is hard enough in pvp

I wouldn't say that so much as they want you to take the 31 point talent in the tree you decided to "spec". Or at least that is what i have gathered from all of their past and proposed changes
