If the original intent of the revamp was to balance the game and powers why in the world were artifacts made? I just thought augments would have been our source of stat boosts to replace color gear mods but out of nowhere they announced Artifacts. Doesn't Artifacts actually end up making the "ENTIRE" point on the revamp pointless? All artifacts are not created equal, there is a pay to win mechanic behind them and you don't need skill points anymore just maxed out artifacts to be OP at everything you do. This actually broke the game and I would love to see someone say otherwise. I thought our stats were supposed to matter not our Artifacts? I hate to say it but I don't think the artifacts were even created for our benefit at all. The process that's needed to level them up is proof of that. I literally think Artifacts were just made exclusively for cash grabbing people foolish enough to spend hundreds of dollars just at to Max them out. It's pretty much a thought that Daybreak had and said "how long can we get away with it before it flops?" The thing is that since so many people are putting money into them, artifacts won't be going anywhere anytime soon. In my personal opinion, I feel that as a loyal player that wanted to see the game in far better shape...was lied to and given a false hope that the game would return back to it's pre AM days. I'm going to say it and a lot of people might get triggered with me but I feel a TRUE REVAMP is in order. One without artifacts and one that actually let's our stats and player skill matter. The game usually goes through some sort of revamp every two to two and a half years anyway so I think it's time now. Final conclusion, Artifacts broke the game and went FAR from the direction the revamp was supposed to take us. There is no such thing as balance with them at all. We don't really need them to still be efficient. They are band-aids that are slappped on powers that should be performing better from the get-go. We don't need artifacts we just need powers to be properly fixed and reviewed. REVAMP WAS POINTLESS CHANGE MY MIND! (PS) not coming at the devs but Daybreak management.
