I really don’t mean to be rude here but to me this reads like “my job is so hard guys but I pinky promise I’ll do better” and while I’m sure that’s true we’ve been hearing that same tune for quite a while now and there is no evidence whatsoever of improvement.
This isn’t even directed at you specifically Nev, balancing in this game is relatively simple math and yet time and again a great many things are wildly off mark. In addition to this ongoing state of imbalance, on the most recent PTR two new sets were introduced. However, one of these sets had no damage reduction (a complaint since literally forever for Monks) and both of them were comically undertuned. So weak that I cannot honestly believe they went through any internal balance testing. The second version leaked to us via Blizzcon (for whatever reason not shown to everyone directly but that is another issue) did nothing to change my opinion of this. The Monk set seems very likely to underperform and the Sader set seems mind blowingly over tuned, again leading me to believe that there was no internal balance testing done on these sets.
While I could maybe give this a pass, there also won’t be a second PTR. This strikes me as a colossal misstep. Between this, the enormous nerf to Rend Barb and the giant rift between what you are saying and what we can see happening I am left feeling like there is no point leaving feedback at all.
General widespread dislike of Rat Runs, while all alternatives have been consistently nerfed.
General widespread complaints about lack of toughness for certain classes consistently ignored for literal years.
General widespread complaints about lack of diversity in meta 4 man groups, while zMonk zBarb Star Pact Wizard and RGK Necro have been the clear go to group since Season 12 (again, literal years).
General lack of diversity on the high end for many classes. The best Monk build since (at least) S12 has been Wave of Light. The best Wizard build since S12 has been Star Pact. The best Barb build since (at least) S12 has been Hota. Coming up on 7 seasons of the same builds every season for 3/7 classes.
The longstanding large gap between classes in solo push capability.
I could go on and on but I think the point is clear by now. If not, see the several thousand replies in the Don’t Nerf Rend threads.
