My Thoughts on the Patch Notes

Well I posted yesterday that the patch notes where out and after looking over them there are some good things and then there are some really terrible things.  I will focus on the terrible things first just to get them out of the way.

The first and worst thing they did was get rid of way to many SCs.  As the old saying goes Variety is the Spice of Life and this goes with games.  People want variety when they are playing.  Sure these 6 SCs will be open the whole time but there will be no changes what so ever and they will get boring unless they have a weekend event every weekend that brings back one of the old SCs.  If they do that every single weekend then I think it will be ok, if not then well we will see.

Another face palm is the nerf of IBs.  Now listen people still hold the misconception that IBs are OP, well they are not.  Only thing making them that is Gromil Plating, which they do need to fix, but other than that they are fine.  They didn't need to nerf cave-in.  It was fine as is.  As someone put it in a thread on WHA, "how can mythic give 2 of the 6 tanks an AoE stagger, while continuously nerfing the other tanks CC is beyond me."  I agree with this wholeheartedly.  They need to either change our AoE CC or give the other tanks more CC.

On a good note is the weapons I hope.  I will be checking them out after work to see how good they are and will be hopefully posting some screenshots of them to show you all.


  1. Actually cave-in was never supposed to be undefendable and was broken with the last patch. So they are fixing it.

  2. I have a feeling that the changes to SCs will not last very long...
