As stated by devs, they want us to give them feedback on the implemented features, reworks and their balance with the existing gameplay.
I believe the devs are sure their first pass will cause discrepancies between their own vision and our vision as players, that’s why they’re asking for all the feedback they possibly can.
I’m sure in this release, there’s thing you don’t agree with, things you feel neutral about, and things you like. Please express those feelings, and try to be as detailed as possible, so devs can know what they did wrong or they didn’t appeal to you. I don’t think the balance isn’t as cut and dry as some think, there’s many interconnected things happening that tilt the balance one way or the other. As Havok mentioned, the engines require materials that are hard to find currently on the live worlds, but the Atlas should help some of those instances, if that isn’t enough, we can always ask for a second, third, fourth and as many passes as we feel are needed. But right now I feel we need more people giving their opinion on the patch, to have sufficient data.
