I'm not disputing that :)
Maybe it's just me but Nerf makes me think of something that will make a class/job less than the others.
My point is that the term "Nerf" is usually associated with a negatime conotation in which is somthing which is unfair.
It's just you.
personally I think that the Term is just used in a negative way and is automatically persived as such as well by the majority of the comunity
If that was the case, noone would have called the 2007 (?) FFXI Archer nerf a "nerf", because the majority of players called for it back then.
as such I feel that we would be better off using the term balance than Nerf.
Once they see through the deception, deceived people usually are not happy.
Like when the same bells were labeled as new "events" three times in a row.
It may be personal preference, but I could swallow a straight "this idea sounds
dumb" better than the endless re-iteration of "we'll look into it". Edited, Jun 15th 2011 5:42am by Rinsui
