I get that battles are being quicker now and sure, that's a fine idea.
What I'm not so fine with is all these cores that are coming out that basically promote fast builds, but the fast build that are coming out are basically all BM builds.
BM as a class is a well balanced class, and in fact can be beaten by players that can out stall a battle and loop heal.
What's the problem here? Well, with the cores that like to implement burst damage, lower defense, mess with medic, the builds that can loop virtually get shut out unless they get lucky with a deflect.
I'd honestly like to change the flow of battles to where we live longer again, because shorter battles promote BM, and it's kinda just meh.
(I've already mentioned this before but I'd like to have it written down in forums)
With HP and EP:
Energy is basically at the base energy unless you decide to run a cyber hunter build.
Back in the older phases, HP and EP started out lower, somewhere in the 40s, and they increased by 2 every stat, which meant that putting points into and energy mattered a whole lot more than it does now.
I think this would be a good idea to get energy a flowing stat again, especially since parasite already isn't the most useful it doesn't affect builds much anymore.
I'd like to see something with the stats or cores, having more defense, maybe take away the diminishing returns, or make them less severe because the way PvP is, is ridiculous.
The balance of the game right now is basically all focus BM with a decent amount of support trying to damage spam to victory in about 4 turns and it's pretty brain dead.
There's a few TM that can get in there to stop the BM, that is, if they can manage to get a shield and a couple of deflecs. But other than that, there's not much that's going on beside that one build.
The other classes are decent, but the way the cores are right now, especially how less defense means more damage = more HP for BM, it's turning a tide in favor of the BM once again.
Don't get me wrong, I like BM, but I want to see other things in the game as well.
