I have no timeline on any potential changes right now but I at least wanted you guys to know that we are aware of your concerns.

Here's hoping it doesn't take 8 months to increase armor rating.

Btw, since my main is/was a sin, if you guys can actually fix this so that they're not the WORST tanks, I'd consider that "content" and would be fully satisfied.

Once again Eric has the thankless task of trying to put a good face on the combat team's laziness, ignorance, and incompetence. Thanks for getting back to us and trying to do your job. Please tell the combat team they should maybe learn from your excellent example and try doing theirs.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

BW should consider hiring Kitru I mean, I think they have done a decent job in the overall pvp/pve balance scheme (with some glaring exceptions as usual in every MMO) but it's always good to have more talent on your team.

They've met me in person already and I'd come on for almost nothing (20-25k/year) since I've got bupkis for expenses and just want to get in the industry already (plus, it's something of a dream job and I don't really care about monies). Hardest part about getting into game dev is the fact that they want previous experience, which is hard to get unless you've already got an in.

Thank You for the aknowledgment at last, even tho it's not much, the wall of silence was really frustrating.
To the ppl that put in the work on all the math and ideas ect, thanks for that too.

It's not much but it's that Bone we have been barking for, as for what Musco says, he needs to have something to say to be able to say something, and at the moment all he has to tell us is they know ppl are unhappy with the state of the class and there gonna talk about it, if they agree or not remains to be seen. The news may be good or bad, some might not be up for waiting but well ultimately thats up to the individual.

For me just knowing that they will atleast talk about it is a start, albiet a slow one, but a start.
