this whole topic was started because people saw high stats on these items, now you have just lowered the standard of your argument by saying that the stats don't matter now because it was discovered they were a handicap, your just gonna pick up any argument in desperation to keep yourself afloat in the argument
My god, you really didn't read my older posts if you think I was complaining based on power balance. Other people are other people, not me. And since my inclusion in this discussion my argument has been based on Yechnagoth's arguments and they never changed their grounds in this whole discussion, actually they never changed as a whole, she argued on the same grounds at other discussion a month ago at the Topic "Pay to play, really?" which I'm sure you are very aware. It is an argument based on game principles, she even copied her argument over the other topic to this one. Read again, game principles, is not based specifically on power balance, speed balance or anything else, but only on game principles (where balance as a whole is included and not only power balance). It's frustrating, really, we tell is bad because it is an advantage and you all assume that we're telling that makabras have 1337+ stats than other weapons and keep repeating this over and over and over so that we had to repeat over and over and over that this is not what we're complaining, it's like we're discussing with a badly programmed robot. At the very first answer Yechnagoth gave to Troyle she already explain that:
I'm sorry, but I'll have to disagree with what you're saying. The reason why there's people complaining is not because of the unbalance those items might generate. Unbalance is just one way to give frustration to players. What we complaining is the fact that someone can acquire a practical item through the store, and reduce the amount of effort he will need in the game because of their money, and not their actual skill.
She uses unbalance here in the way most of you use so that it wouldn't cause much confusion, she uses the word unbalance specifically as power balance, and she already say that it's not about it. I have been with her since we begun this whole discussion and I'm still on her support, because we both agree these items are wrong on game principles, and that goes back to the "Pay to Play. Really?" topic a month ago. You didn't really understand our reasons to say we've changed them.
And about your other post (above the one I quoted), not only you took my quote out of context, since I was talking about mechanics, not prospects, but it falls under the same previous mistakes, we never really complained about power balance. It does not matter that the makabras don't have OP stats, or it won't make you OP, Ankama already said it won't many times, and we never really complained about it and we have pointed that countless of times, going back to page 5 where Troyle pointed this out and Yechnagoth argued that is not about it. But I'm sure you won't understand this again, because you can't understand game principles.
And by the way, I called you kid because you were being naive, like a kid, in believing that I'm quitting just because of the Makabras Issue, or that I didn't have passion or experience in this game.
