True, I definitely used the wrong wording there.
Some of those bug fixes, and intentional change we’re huge in how MM played.
Lets not forget:
Explosive shot now working as we specifically asked for in moving away from the horrible skill-shot mechanic.
Removing that cancerous 50% bonus to Aimed on any target not previously hit by the player.
The balance of damage from Precise Shots to the corresponding abilities was very much intentional in an effort to make them more impactful than pre 8.1, while some of the other tuning and adjustments were absolutely needed for QoL (Lone Wolf ramp, Multi spread, Lethal Shots not giving us a stupid rotation).
That Trueshot change was huge, in it’s now a CD that matters.
Trickshots is still a horrible mechanic.
Yes, it can absolutely be improved further (past their efforts of improving in 8.1). Do you think they’ll replace the mechanic in BFA?
Yeah, MM still has issues. A lot of specs still do, and it’s not ok to discount our own problems because of that overall lack of design. 8.1 was good for us (at least in PvE).
With the exception of further tuning (and hope that talents can be more competitive), do you think the above will be addressed before 9.0 Alpha?
