Take a walk through Prontera, not very long look at most of the vendors they are selling cash shop items at extremely high prices. So from what i can tell people are really upset about 1 item in particular, the enforcer shoes. Seems like a lot of PvP crying to me. There are numerous cash items in the game that have broken a class in some way. If you are going to adjust one you should have to adjust them all. Want an easy fix, make cash shop items unusable in WoE problem solved and easy to implement.
Nerfing items that have been sold in good faith to remain as they are, it is immoral in the highest possible sense of the word to modify something after it has been purchased, example you by a CD and enjoy all it has to offer but then the producer or artist of said CD says oh oops we are taking away half these songs, because their is simply too much value in these songs. People that are pushing for nerfs of items are proposing exactly that. Its called power creep it is systemic in this game and almost all games. Over a long enough period of time certain things will be over powered. There are at least 100+ Items that need to be "nerfed" including cards that already exist in the game. Would you also claim that the "God Items" should be nerfed as well, they are excessively broken but someone put time investment into acquiring them, do you cheapen the reward cause others are jealous NO. Its the same in the case of cash shop items except the time investment comes in the form of a job and not hours in a game, offered as a luxury more convenient way to acquire gear.
I would love to hear an argument supporting nerfing that isn't egregiously immoral, without bias about oh i am but hurt cause such and such a class one shotted me. Not interested, again an easy fix for this is to remove cash shop items entirely from WoE which wouldn't take much more than adding some text to the items and then placing restrictions as such on all of them. Might take a bit to program but its the easiest fair fix. If you think it will change much you are sorely mistaken, this is a game of haves and have nots, like life, you think its fair that one person is decked head to toe in MVP cards no, will they still decimate you were you stand, oh god yes. Is it fair that we have billionaires who never need for anything, while others starve?. Crying for nerfs always ends the same, if you nerf something that has been purchased in good faith to remain as is and then it is suddenly changed, then compensation is required as you have changed the deal. Would you mind if you bought a gold bar from me one week and then i take 1/3 of it back because well the future outcome of things weren't as intended so, i am taking 1/3 of my gold bar back. Be honest you would lose your mind.
Food for thought. Changing a deal after the fact is immoral period. Either leave them all alone, or change them all. If you leave any of those items next week it will be the hated item of the week and demands will be made for it to be nerfed cause now a different class goes unchallenged in PvP, nerfing for the sake of PvP is a slippery slope once it starts it will never stop how many items should people be compensated for, will they even be compensated for basically being ripped off?. I don't know the answers to this, do you?.
