Although he did say this was just a side experiment he had started, he did ask for feedback.
My feedback? No, I refuse to solo tank again. It was horrible and if that is what the game is then I’ve no reason to play.
Also not crazy about half my fav heros being reworked.
He gave an example of RH having 400 hp and no damage reduction on his heal. He would be murdered 99.9% of the time with his size, no damage reduction, and I believe he also mentioned reworking his gun.
No, that couldn’t be it, he’s just talking about how they initially reacted to his idea… maybe this part?
No, that still doesn’t sound like he’s specifically saying they weren’t serious about it, that it definitely wasn’t going to happen, or that it was just a silly experiment…
Maybe this part?
No, still not fitting the narrative…
They sound legitimately conflicted about the topic and are taking it very seriously. Serious enough to devote two months of development time on it and to leave the (potentially) most detailed developer post to date on the forums.
All of the discussion about who’s gonna do what and what concerns people have are probably the most important thing that you could have on the forums right now.
This isn’t going to be something that happens without huge, sweeping changes across the roles and it’s certainly not going to happen anytime soon, if it happens at all. There’s all these people who are going around acting like this is going to be on the next PTR and that there won’t be any other changes except making this the new role lock. It’s hysteria.
…lol wut? I did that to point out how absurd it was. That was intentional, to point out why what you did to his quote made almost no sense. I should have made that even more obvious, I guess…
And… yeah, that’s kind of the point. A lot of people are letting their own wants (no 3-2-1 or yes 3-2-1) twist the wording of his post. Like they’re seeing it through either your or my bolded version of that paragraph and not for what it really said. Jeff pretty clearly is saying “We are uncertain, we don’t know if it’s right or wrong” and people are like “shut up stop talking about it you idiots it’s not happening” or “face it it’s happening deal with it” - not very helpful when they’re clearly asking for feedback, not for people to actively drive people away from giving it
