My 'Top Three Things that Need Fixin' in PL'

Rate this Entry
Justg recently created a thread in the PL forums called Top Three Things that Need Fixin' in PL where people are able to list their top three things they want to see a change of. Justg mentions three caveats:

1) This is not a guarantee that we will do any of these things. We just want to make sure we are aware of the issues.
2) BALANCE CHANGES CAN MEAN A HUGE NERF, so be careful what you wish for!
3) This is not a guarantee that we will do any of these things (again).


When I scrolls thru the post I am not surprised about almost EVERY single person listing "nerf Forgotten Bow" in their answers. But really, is it the Forgotten Bow that is the problem?

- NO! The problem isn't the dps of Forgotten Bow. Even if I hate the point that noobs can burst you down in 2 seconds, I also enjoy being able to do it myself.

Here is the REAL problem:
Health Pool. The health pool in PL is way to low and doesn't change much during leveling. STG need to fix this, so there is a much bigger difference between health of low- and high leveled players. With a more balanced health pool, we got longer fights, more skill requiring PVP, no 1-seconds burst (even with fb) and best of all, combat become more of a strategic thing. Today, the only thing you need to know to be a good player is your ranges. Whit this change you will actually plan which skill you will use when instead of just pushing all skills as fast as possible.

Continuing of this, another point I addressed in this post is that PL needs more defensive skills, based on the same reason as before. The PVP fights are way to fast and we need a change here. And the solution is NOT to nerf one single weapon. What we need is some game changing features!

To sum this up; my suggestions is to change "it all", not just one item to get a better balance. Here is the two suggestions I've mentioned above:
  • Increase Health Pool
  • Implement more defensive skills
