    people were using them for permification of crumbly enhancives, you know, something people actually want to spend money on.
    The DEV team said "no more fun" and put a stop to it. Wyrom apologized for upsetting them and kowtowed to their demands.

    That's what I'm getting at. Their idea of game balance is to nerf everything that works fine and is fun, so that all classes can ideally be equally tedious instead of just buffing classes who need it so that everyone is fun to play.

    The fact that none of the dev teams past or present has learned anything at all from dev teams before them taking the same shitty approach and pissing more and more people off and cutting down the game population as a result is pretty amazing. Not in a good way at all, but still amazing.

    Yes, once they stop doing stupid things and implementing their shitty ideas that make the game more tedious and less fun for no real applicable reason.

    Why does the game need balance? Are we setting up pvp tournaments?

    Remember when they kept nerfing all kinds of shit for no reason other than "because realism"? They never got any better at thinking.

    Because it's played by humans, and they like a level playing field, or to be the one with an advantage.
    I don't use Lich. If you want to do business with me, contact me via PM, IG, or on AIM. Or maybe use smoke signals. Don't like it, get off of my lawn.

    I'm in same boat. For PVE which is 99% of this game I don't care too much about the balance mechanics. I can handle when anothe profession is better than mine, so long as I can still play quasi efficiently it doesn't bug me personally.

    As for enhancive permanence and fusion gear, never really had either so I am not depenedent on it and does not bother me. I get that for some people at the top tier of the game mechanically it is very beneficial but to me grand scheme they are perks and not necessities. has to be annoying to sit in first class and find out one day those comped drinks aren't free any more, and I liken these things to that.

    The Game Balance Genie has been out of the bottle for decades. I don't really care if someone has +20 more AS than I do, if they have a weightless container, if they have a self-knowledge item for a circle they don't have access to, etc. We're not competing against each other in Barbie Dress-up Murder Simulator, GS is just text-based power fantasy.
