1.7 is skipping straight over the PTS and going to live servers. which leads one to believe that there will be no significant balance changes made with this patch cycle.

Yuck, so now they get another 6-8 week grace period before they have to do something about smash and bubble stun. Lameness.

Looks like it, yes. But isn't that exactly what they've already said? That there will be no class changes until the expansion.

I think many of us concluded that, I don't remember a BW source ever saying it.

You might very well be right on that. Memory is a tricky thing. Either way, I would be very surprised if they did any class balancing until then.

While it would be nice to see some changes, honestly its probably the right thing because I bet you will see some major changes with the additional 5 character levels that is coming with the expansion. I am saying this as I find the bubble stun and smash incredibly annoying. Not OP but super annoying.

the expansion is toted for a spring release. assuming we are back to the 6-week patch cycle, the next patches will be on March 26, May 7, and June 18. all of those dates are within "spring".

based on bioware's past decision patterns, im betting on a June 18 release. PvP for the next 4 months is gonna be so much fun

ok but the easiest thing in the world is fixing bubble stun. you could argue all day and night about smashers, but bubble is broken in two ways. either one fix would be the simplest thing: fix the hit to resolve and make it only stun for the caster. iunno. I do expect that. I don't think that's asking too much.

The new content in the expansion will force people to live with the upcoming class changes. They're completely out of touch, but they're not completely stupid.

I do not think any of the last few "balancings" have been on TC even when they have tested it. I find it odd that nothing is on test, but that doesn't mean they don't throw out a couple of tweaks.

What it tells me is; they don't give a crap what we might think in testing. They are going to do things their way.
