Why do you feel you're being punished? Are you not able to successfully finish content? I actually find being a tank much easier than being a DPS when it comes to solo. When it comes to group it's even worse because everyone else are also DPS. The devs recently increased our cr with low content. It wasn't even needed yet the whiners got some love from that. Multiple times has devs been vocal about this and that is your skill points, arts, mods etc... will always be better than someone who doesn't. With that said I'm still baffled how these players are having trouble. A lot of players are being exposed its not even funny anymore.
