<p>First off I want to stress I didn't actually NAME any class names here.  I did this purposefully to prevent them from burying this in the class forums, which they will probably do anyway.  I consider this a real issue not restricted to warrior classes, feel free to add your versions for scout, caster, or whatever.</p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">SOE Senior Developer:<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  </span>Okay people I have brought you all here to discuss the upcoming expansion.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  </span>We need to decide where we are going with class advancement.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  </span>Let us begin with the warriors.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #1:<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  </span>Okay well we have Class A.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  </span>Their original concept was a class that did not use magic but had better armor and shields then the other warrior classes, so ultimately they could take more damage.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #2:<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  </span>Ahhh yes, okay then let’s give them a couple new abilities that increase taunt and maybe one that prevents some damage and that should cover it.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #3: yeah that sounds good</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Sr Developer: Okay then, that covers Class A, next we have warrior Class B</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #1: Well their concept was that they had inferior shields and armor to Class A but they compensated that with spell casting abilities.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #2: Oh, that’s not going to work… they may complain, and besides my main is a Class B, I think we should give them at least as good armor and shields so they can tank better, don’t you think?</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #1: yeah I can see that … okay then that’s easy enough to do.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #2: You know what?<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  We</span> can’t hold agro as well as Class A either… we should give Class B a few abilities to even that out as well.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr Developer #1: done</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr Developer #2: Even with the new armor and shields we still can’t take quite as much damage as Class A… hmmm… let’s give Class B some new abilities in the expansion so we can take more damage.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr Developer #1: easy enough, *scribbles on his pad*, consider it done</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer#2: OH another great idea let’s give us a lot more DPS abilities as well!!!! that sounds like a great idea.</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #1: great idea umm hmm … done and done playing Class B is gonna be LEET now!!!</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #3: guys … ummm… with all that we are giving Class B there will be a huge problem with Class balance for warriors now… maybe we should give more to Class A to balance it out?</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">*confused silence in the room*</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Sr. Developer:<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  </span>Class balance… what is that?</span></p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">Jr. Developer #1: *sigh* I knew we shouldn’t have hired that guy… spouting all that techno lingo… “class balance” pfft</span></p><p><span style="line-height: 115%; font-family: ">Jr. Developer #2: let’s put aside this “class balance” mumbo jumbo and move on to the other warrior classes, I have some SWEET ideas for them.</span></p>

I was just trying to make light of how they made a HUGE class imbalance and I'm not sure how they let that one slip by.  I know from reading posts they did the same thing with rangers.  It seems like class balance is just a romantic notion to them... not something to strive for at all *sigh*</p>
