That’s a good way to kill heavy armor, nobody will use heavy then.
Light and medium armor users can carry poison orbs and more healing items/pvp elixirs and to add more to that, can loot more items from a dead player where the heavy armor player can barely loot a few items.
Then we have the climb problems aswell, where you have to go naked to climb during raids which puts you at great risk.
If you use light and medium armor try not to use two handed swords and warhammers. I mostly use heavy armor during PvP but when enough players fill that role I step down to medium/light armor to support teammates by dealing good damage, good dodge and loot a lot of gear without getting above 100%
Heavy armor does its job if people are stupid enough to trade damage with a heavy armor user when they are medium/light, it is not the heavy armor users fault that the light/medium armor player does not use his mobility and more flexible inventory to his advantage.
A heavy armor user has to dodge once then sprint away to get to safety, this is the biggest advantage heavy armor currently has, and it is not hard to punish this as the heavy armor user probably has about 50-60% stamina left by then if hes below 20 grit which he most likely is. You can put pressure and kill the heavy armor user by depleting his stamina by forcing another engagement.
if light/medium armor use one handed weapons with shields as blocking is so easy and OP right now, get an axe to knockdown/bleed after the heavy armor user has stopped swinging, you can literally choose when to engage safely with the shield. Even spears are good for light/medium armor.
There are so many ways to counter heavy armor but people in this game generally are new or just never bothers to think of things like this and just goes for the straight out spam right click and hope for the best type of fight.
But to be fair I find the light armor to be more useless since medium armor outshines it in every aspect.
It should be about if light armor should get buffs
