What the hell does that mean?

Are you honestly trying to say that this nerf was on par with the game breaking qualities of NGE?

What's most worrying, is Bioware's implementation. We all knew slicing was overpowered, but:

1) Bioware didn't run the simplest of number simulations on slicing before release to show how overpowered it was, despite plenty of beta data and feedback

2) When they found out, they didn't 'fix' the problem, they overcorrected, effectively removing slicing entirely as a skill by making the longterm balance = null

Players will always find ways to min/max in the game, but something so obvious being followed by something so knee-jerk and over-reactionary, doesn't bode well for the future of the game.

In the very beginning when the game was first released fishing made one a lot for those times. It was greatly nerfed to what it is today which pretty much gives you nothing.
