Jeff, I fear someone is going to have to follow you around the forums to correct you at every post…
The devs “Funcom” have stated a focus on bug fixes over content. This has been made public knowledge. “Bugs”, or glitches in the coding, can happen at any point in development. Sometimes, old bugs can return do to the implementation of a new update or new content that causes conflict in the coding. Also that “balancing stuff” your talking about, by doing that they very well could be fixing these “bugs” you are wanting fixed. Unless you’re running their engine and their softwares you can’t be certain that particular values couldn’t be causing conflict with other values.
If you are new to the forums I urge you to go and read the “updates and bugs” forum and all past patch notes.
If you are not new to the forum, the I urge you to READ before posting to fully understand the contents of a thread your posting on, or making suggestions for.
For us console players, there is the “patch of 500 fixes” rolling down the pipe line. It has launched on PC already and we are next in line to get it. Again something you would know if you took a moment to read around the forums. So please, have a seat and relax. What you desire will come. Perhaps not exactly as you expect it, but will come none the less.
