I am 95% sure this game will die if these changes are implemented. It's just turning this game into literally EVERY OTHER GAME out there right now. Why wouldn't I just go play something else that has classes? PoE, Overwatch, WoW...anything. They are supported and polished better than this game will ever be. No one asked for or wants massive combat changes. Did you ever play Path of Exile? Why do you think their game is so popular? They add new stuff every week, mostly cosmetic. You drastically underestimate how important and wanted cosmetic items are. I bet that alone would bring in new players and keep the old ones. Add more things for players to do/fight for. Cut the down-time completely. There are many things to cut down-time that I could name right now and they aren't even being looked at. Combat only needs some damage nerfs and we're good. As soon as you change the combat, everyone who came back to play this game will quit, tell their friends about it and they will die.
