Do you have any better data, statistics, etc. to base your opinions on? If not, these are the best statistics we have access to, and they're going to be far better than people going "Well, i FEEL like X needs to be done."
Furthermore, you keep stating why the statistics MIGHT not be reliable (not that they aren't reliable, but that there's a chance of a chance of a chance they might not be completely accurate), but you fail to give ANY reason whatsoever why one class would be affected moreso than another. For example, you keep bringing up "Well, the game has newbs, so it doesn't count." Do you have any justification that such a factor will affect mages moreso than other classes? If not, then you're point is utterly irrelevant.
The data is evidently what you want it to be. You criticize my reasoning behind my point, yet what you're doing is laughable. I've already dismantled your argument based on the statistics you used; to put it in lamens terms for you, they are incomplete and insufficient to prove what you are trying to say.
Moreover, your constant character assignations and mis-characterizations of what I am trying to point out is tiring, to say the least. Never did I claim that the game "has newbs, therefore X does not count". What I tried to explain is that the game is relatively new, and has not been officially released. The data that you presented assumes too much for what your argument states, because you have not accounted for the amount of time people spent playing the game.
You presented Win Rates and declared your position as absolute truth, whilst all other opinions are based on "feelings". I will say it for the last time, statistics are irrelevant when one does not understand context and how to properly apply them to an argument.
I'm sorry, but you lost the chess match from your very first response.
