As I have previously admitted pushing the previous patch to live was a mistake, it was premature and needed more time on PTS. With that in mind, I took to the Discord combat focus group and asked: "What makes the combat changes on live bad and what can we change to make it good while we finish the rest on PTS?" - paraphrasing.. While there were varying responses the main consensus was that the armor changes made Destroyer spec'd players too tanky, and cobras were not useful. The primary ideas brought to the table were to either reduce metal armor protections (which had some arguments against it) and the other was to remove specializations now so full heavy players didn't get the extra protections and the bonuses from the specs. This led us to making the post we released yesterday saying we were going to push the spec removal and increase cobras speed, (due to push back I decided to leave sarracenia's as they are for the time being). Complete reversal of the live patch isn't ideal due to some of the changes affecting the database. However we could revert a good portion of it if people still feel it's necessary while the remaining items get dealt with on PTS. Coming from a programming standpoint I know the most ideal scenario is to move forward in some fashion be it reduce armor protections, remove specs now or something to that affect. Now I am curious how this feels to people and if this is the right direction. Let me know.
