Editorial: Assault Ship Changes


The new balance team is ramping up and at Vegas we saw the next phase of their plan: tackling assault ships. While I agree this is a much needed change, I feel the exact design that was suggested is unimaginative, and doesn’t provide any new solutions or problems. Today I discuss at length why I feel this change is a mistake, as well as suggest a couple of alternative options.

Note: as with all design proposals the numbers are not final, but rather this is high level concepts of how the design can play out. The goal should be to create different and new kinds of choices, not more extreme versions of the same burst tanks.
