You know what's not equally important though? GSF. it's nothing but a POS to PvP'ers

If your goal was to make juggernauts and guardians even more useless in ranked, and WZs in general: mission accomplished. Focus was already garbage in ranked; no need for further explanation need on that.

The fd/ed changes are just stupid. FD and ED is an excellent mid level defensive cd, which was only being hurt by the initial focus/rage cost. Simply eliminating the initial focus/rage cost would have been sufficient. Show me where guardians and juggernauts were asking for another strong defensive cd on a long timer.... This is a serious overall survivability hit, especially to vig/veng, to an already squishy DPS class.

And giving defense/immortal another strong defensive cd? They already have the best cds ingame. The reason no one wants them in pvp is because they hit like a wet noodle.

You will get to see the rewards we have planned for Season 1 and the ranks required to achieve them. I am very excited for you guys to see them.
Ha Ha, awesome!

Congrats to PoT5 and the other servers, who get ranked arenas, on your rewards.

Those who had problems with Scamper, Smash and melee in general are just bads. This nerf patch goes to show you that BW has absolutely no idea what they're doing.
