But now that UEE is coming along, why should I buy it? The difference between Monks and every other class is huge, and I can see no reason to subject myself to playing a broken class in low difficulties.
And then you mention that you aren't going to patch PS3/X360 after launch. So... am I forced to buy an Xbone too?
If UEE doesn't ship with patch 2.1, you might lose a lot of customers who used to play Monks, and don't want to xfer their character over into a game that classes them as followers.
