No1 gives the slitest fuck about L2 or Archage. If you dislike the class mechanics on this game so much then go to another game forum and stop being an annoying prick. Its not gonna change, either deal with it or leave. Fuck sake you are annoying.
-sigh- the vocal minority speaks out again! People like you are the ever degenerating populace of uneducated speaking on matters they know nothing of; advising how a game should be balanced is not your job quite clearly. You literally have no understanding of basic game mechanics, race/class interaction, or game balance. This is made very evident from your posts. You rage on this guy, perhaps rightly so if he simply complains, but have not addressed anything he said about how the game is actually made.
IF you've ever looked at BnS, or played it for that matter, you'd know that right now PvP is a mess. Of course they DO have time to fix it, but when someone brings up VERY valid questions on how the game is designed you shouldn't brush them aside simply because you "don't like it".
The argument you make of "If you don't like it go play another game" is about as horrendous of an argument as you could make. The other poster simply proposes balance in the game, though stealth is core to what the assassin is in this game, he believes there are many issues with how skills operate. Telling him to play a different game because there are clear imbalances does not address the problem, clear imbalances, and only provides NCSoft with a reference to an ill-informed user base.
Let me tell you a secret! If you want a truly good game you tell the game developers there are problems with their game. You don't just bend over and take what you get. They make you a product you pay for; and you therefore have a say into how the game is made. If the company does not listen, as we've seen with aion, tera and many others, people have this fantastic option you mentioned called: Don't like the product don't play the game. Know what that does? Destroys your oh so precious Blade and Soul because you didn't actually help the developer change anything, and instead just sat there like a little sheep and prayed they would mouth feed you everything you wanted.
It is for these reasons either you should keep your ad-hominems to yourself, or actually educate yourself on game design, balance, or developer creation of a game.
edit: I shall make myself a little more clear. I'm not saying you are not right in shunning him away aari, as I know you do in fact play the game. However, you're simply not addressing the concern over linear balance whether it is applied to 1v1 or 3v3 through whatever class skills. I agree that "actual player skill" will always play a role in a game; however, there are simply certain things skill cannot overcome if you assume people have the same level of competence as another competitive player. This is the issue that needs to be addressed in any game not just BnS. I'm almost positive you agree with this as I've watched you PvP a few times with commentary :P
