  1. Even if Bruising wasn't meant to give tankers identity, tankers have the best -res numbers on every single power available to melee classes. There is evidence of offensive support tendencies on tankers even if you assume the bruising addition was purely to make the forced t1 picks decent.
  2. The general case being what? No damage buffs at all and AoE reach and target cap being irrelevant? I already stated why it's hard for me to let go, I wanted offensive support buffs for a long time (I've been vocal about my reasoning long before the patch) and instead i got a support nerf, a useless must-pick t1 power and a tanker that more closely resembles a brute in function.
  3. See, this is why I didn't wanna give feedback again, because there are always people who ignore 90% of my and other people's work and cherry-pick whatever suits their argument. I calculated and gave damage comparisons at multiple damage buff and fury breakpoints which showed Tankers reaching Brute levels of damage when moderate damage buffs are in play(Rage is not the only source), created new builds and ran tests (With TW, Staff, and SS, leadership, weaken resolve, pyre mastery, soul mastery) both with pylons and regular gameplay. That you choose to take all that and boil it down to "you did nothing but show SS needs a nerf" is downright insulting to the hours upon hours of work i invested into build-making, setup, tests and documentation.
  4. The Tanker/Brute comparisons were done comparing identical melee/armor set configurations, the Corruptor/Blaster analogy doesn't quite work to the same effect. Also there's a reason Blasters got a buff.
  5. Yes @Jimmy because having Bruising gives you Defender levels of force multiplication? It's not even Controller/Corruptor/SoA/MM levels, and those classes' -res powers stack from other casters. And if you wanna keep the Tanker different from a ranged support class, how are you ok with the fact that my tests (and others) showed the Tanker getting Brute levels of damage?
  6. Far from it. "My way" would have been completely different from the changes (which I obviously won't get into ITT), I agreed to compromise on several issues including the removal of Bruising, but the only thing I got was a slight increase to leadership and melt armor debuff/buff numbers which were toned down shortly afterwards. There was also the addition of Weaken Resolve which soon after got the multiplier attached to weaken it on tankers.
  7. I'm not here to re-open the topic. I'm here to respond to posts saying the bruising topic was "hashed out" when in fact it was clearly not, as you can see in the post you linked.
  8. I did, and while it was discussed, a lot of my counter-arguments were ignored. And I don't have to stay quiet if I feel like my voice isn't being heard. There was actual discussion, and I wasn't asking for all the changes i dislike to be removed. If I weren't able to compromise I would've given up a long time ago.
  9. I responded to every single one of those replies and didn't get a response in the end. Just because you think the rationale was firm doesn't mean I have to agree with it. Acknowledged how? By giving tankers a stronger buff/debuff multiplier only to nerf it back down because my tests showed the damage buffs were too strong alongside the support buffs? By making T1 powers useless in a patch that's supposed to address tankers? I love this game so obviously this won't stop me from coming back, it's just me expressing my disappointment more than trying to change stuff at this point.
  10. "All hashed out" implies both sides of the argument were satisfied. I'm still left with a useless must-pick T1 power, still lose a feature i've been enjoying for years in favor of a damage buff I didn't want (i wanted support buffs), and I still lose class distinction between the brute and tanker. There was no "hashing out" being taken place, just me addressing my concerns and them being brushed aside over and over again.
  11. Time/* is probably the most flexible defender to build due to how easy it is to reach recharge and defense goals. You can go for different tank/utility/damage routes without really missing out on a lot. My favored route is Sorcery for the Spirit Ward/Rune of Protection utility due to the recharge levels you can reach and Spirit Ward adding range to your support package.

  12. Sorry but as it feels like my feedback is being ignored, I will no longer participate in these tests and discussions.
  13. The reasoning was that it's only an AV assist tool unless you're at high levels of recharge, which usually only arrive once your build is almost done. I think you can switch its level selection with Screech since that one's mostly used against AV's as well.
