Lets refer to their Wizard patch preview 1.0.4 dev journal:
They clearly stated there they are not against CM builds, but "Originally, we weren’t going to make this change, but 1.0.4 also brings with it a number of new Legendary items, and many of them have phenomenal new proc effects. If we left high proc coefficients as they were, then a handful of skills with higher coefficients would become the de facto choice to use with these sexy new items."
And now not far from 1.0.4 going live, issue is a CM and 100% CC uptime?
Few things dear blizzard dev team:
1 - we realy don't care about legendary proc effects which are anyway useless. So if a given quote above is true, you can remove them, nobody will care.
2 - do you realize you are not nerfing only CM, but also Wiz class survivability? It affects mostly LoH, APoC, etc.
3 - these builds work only in expensive gears, which still isn't being a fair price for you for that being a case?
Honestly, I realy wonder how you come up with that balance.. since clearly you are breaking it to the point where it just stops to work and you call it "having balance for a better in long-term of the game".
Plus here you say, in a same post mentioned above, that even after proc coefficients nerf, CM builds still remain suitable with a very expensive gears: "For those with extremely high Crit rates, you may not even notice much difference, but I wanted to call it out anyway."
So can you please clarify if this is still a case?
I still pray it will be after 1.0.5 goes live.
And honestly, I don't understand why are you nerfing all the skills proc coeficients and if CM is your issue.. Why don't you just lower proc chance of CM it self? Then above quote is 100% truth.
Anyway, I must discuss further.
It is quite funny, because first you nerf one skill. We say OK.. we found out another one. you nerf it. We switched, And you nerf it again, and again, and again.. how far would you like to go?
Also please understand that this game is about farming, and farming is about efficiency.. so there will be always just one or two builds with one or two best skills which synergy for that build, to farm efficient. So please STOP with that build diversity nonsense..
And yet all of this is because you probably saw a bunch of very well geared Wizards on PTR realm ruling MP10 and here comes the nerf..
So, to end this little rant:
Can you just please clarify your quote "skill synergy isn’t where we want it to be for wizards at the moment, and we’re looking at ways to improve that for the future." more further NOW?
Reason I play Wizard is because I choosed him now being a very nice battle mage tank, I don't like to wait for all your nerfs.
How can I be sure that one day you won't just come and won't remove CM completely from game? .. just like nothing happens..
Reason I am asking is because you probably don't realize that:
A) We are running hundredth of hours on farming and spending millions of millions of golds on gear to make these builds work.. and now you apparently want us to do it again, just for another build.. and next patch for another build.. always something will rule sanctuary.
B) We don't like to get annoyed same way as we did with WoW when last couple of patches we've been doing nothing but reading patch notes and changing/farming for new gears.
C) We don't like to realize in middle of paragon leveling in some patch x.x that we should rather reroll for example a Barbarian, because Wizard is not most efficient class to farm in this game.
.. We just want to have an option to quit this game now before I will get nerfed again in next 2 patches.
