    If I'm not mistaken it has been 8 months since the release of Mod 16, and so far Class Balance has not yet been resolved. A new DPS formula is already working on the live server and my main class (GWF) is still below others. My concern is that with the upcoming events I won't even be able to get into the same elite groups that happens in ToMM, where even having a piece of equipment that I find sensational would be treated as a burden to carry.

    And if there are no plans for change, please let me know as I can focus on something new.

    This event is a BAD idea in a bis only mod when most players have done all they can do 5 min after reset. mod 17 and the insane player exodus should show you what a bad idea BIS only content/mods are
    There are more than BIS players in this game
    It has been 5 YEARS since last new class this is getting ridiculous
    Master expeditions is a good idea. Just extremely boring if it is only thing you do for 2 MODS
    Please do master/normal version of dungeons. This way content for all MOD 17 have nothing new for vast majority of player base
    Changes are getting so bad i would rather prefer no new changes (RIP ICE FISHING in winter fest)

    Endcontent is adapted towards a small minority of elite players with billions of AD , playing for ages together, and even doing so they needed to train hard, communicating on voicechat to absolve it.
    A game where there is nothing else to head for outside a premade BIS group, except running rebalanced content released >10 mods ago is hard to stand.
    What will happen when console player same as newer player recognize how hard this content is scaled and adpated towards a "one way setup" in a BIS premade group?
    Oneway means you only can run it with:
    -6-7x TR/Hunter/CW....Arbiter, Barbie, Dreadnaught and crappy warlock have to stay outside
    -all using near same Augments,no there are no alternatives, devs do not consider active companions to be part of a competetive setup in their endgame
    -all using same Chest, same hands dropping from trash content...fixing damage multiplier for classes halve way and sticking with some broken mulitplier for power from low level hands chest and that companion looks like doing halve work, I mean you flatened every companionpower with so much ambition and destroyed millions of AD from former BIS comps to simply forget one or two ?
    - all run same old multiplier gear, down to mod 8 plus rings from mod 17, spending 20k+stats at IL 980 where rings from mod 16 spend halve of that ammount- I guess noone invetsted a second to compare those stats , same IL double stats? looks stupid to me
    - Near all run same weapon- and armorenchants
    -all invested 20mio++ AD into max. insignia, max r15, legend mount etc, where a new player these days needs to spend either 1000's of Dollar to get there or simply stay outside


    beside that:
    Classbalance is HAMSTER and obvioulsy it needs 4-5 years to get there, to destroy it in a splitsecond.
    Scaling doesn't work in many parts of the game.
    A new damage formular get's implemented, condamned to lead to more disbalance in future mods, instead of solving that topic once and for all
    Actually it looks like devs fix one or two bugs from that endless list and produce 4 new bugs per patch, how?
    What about build diversity and alternative setups, why did you kill all options for variety at once ?
    I also feel sorry for the small community of PVP'ers with their boundless optimism, still sticking with this game and getting hamstered every time-who broke that boons and WHY ?
    The game is hard to enjoy these days :/
    Please cryptic/devs anyone responsible for this mess, take your time and rethink your primary goals.

    Forum is pretty much dead actually, noone is posting builds for classes any more, maybe also due to the setup being too straight forward, a lot of player lost interest to even post mayor bugs, since they simply don't care any more due to missing feedback etc.
    PS: and as it looks, noone wants to tank this hamster, tanking in NWO is the most hated role from all

    Players are leaving .. running for the door because they are happy they are not getting any content and those that have millions in ad and do not spend real money get rewarded.
