First of all, I was never talking to you or about you personally. Second...I understand the game. I don't really need you to explain things to me. I understand what each of the skills does for my character, I understand that I get to choose where to allocate skill points, and I built my character exactly the way I wanted based on game parameters...except now my character is not what I built...it is something else because Kano decided they didn't like the way some players were approaching the game. Based on the parameter changes, I am guessing it will take me a year or more to re-balance my character to the way I intended, and was before the change. And the frustration is the if I (we) re-balance my character, Kano will more likely than not change it again. All your advice and explaining doesn't mean shit. We can't build our characters the way we want if the target is always moving. When I literally go from winning a fight to loosing the same fight by 50% or more from one minute to the next, which is what happened to my character, then how you build your character is irrelevant. And with regard to my comment about long time players...my comments were not directed at individual players, but rather the community at large. And my comments are based on observation of chat rooms and player comments.
