I'm sorry for the coloring of my response? It seems in game and on forums you aren't happy with the things that go on. I would attribute this to your agressive tendency to play devils advocate. Intentional or not, that is how you seem to represent yourself. I've always found Nia to be polite and reasonable even when our opinions differ!
You keep saying that debuff is hindering the game as a whole.... but you have no proof of this at all. Noted, but I doubt we can ever show you tangible statistical data of player satisfaction.
... until you give me a definition of the debuff skills purpose PROVIDED by the people who put it in the game.... your opinions on what its "supposed" to be for, will remain invalid to me I'm sorry. as a "moderator", I would say you interact more with developers than us. Maybe you could take the positive step and get the definition for us! Would be very helpful and valuable.
I personally think with STEAM introduced the population is slowly, but still getting better... and I think with all the new updates coming and everything people will not only come back to play but we will get more players than ever....I have high hopes. Agreed. Although I think a skill rebalancing wouldn't hurt. (By the way, quoting yourself, do you have any proof for these hopes? )
Debuff mages are very weak. Fast? Sure. Annoying, obviously. All it takes is 3-4 friends to take them down as I've stated before, and so if they come back you just keep taking them down.... how hard of a concept is that? True story: I saw 3 mages completely destroy 4 fully buffed raiders/scouts. Only 1 of the mages was buffed and he didn't die. After a few miserable attempts the enemies gave up. The three mages were dressed as goofy lions and it was extremely entertaining to watch.
If I have at least 6 of my friends/clannies on, we can easily take down 3debuff mages... its truly not that hard....at all. If it was hard to fight 3 of ANYTHING with 7 people.. perhaps this game should be scrapped.
Your last post was 959 words. More than I've done on my assignment for the last 3 hours Q_Q
I'm not a technical expert but how can we put in a poll to quanitfy player opinions? My head hurts from trying to understand these long posts.
