Just wanted to put a reminder out. It had been intimated that developers were/are aware of some the Ranger problems. In fact they have indicated they had some ideas to fix us. For instance; On 02/06/2010 ... ~ 6 Months ago! Rothgar wrote: Now they have had time to make myriad changes for other classes. Substantial changes for some tank classes. Developers have time for UI changes (sheesh!), F2P, Battlegrounds, Several updates, GU57 and .... NOTHING! That was followed in June by the 'infamous interview by Feldon (EQ2Wire) that pretty blatantly and dismissively told us the real problem was our general inability to play the Ranger class. Q: I have to ask this because Iâ€™ve played a ranger in EQ2 since day one, and Iâ€™ve seen a lot of rangers comparing themselves to assassins lately and feeling that theyâ€™re coming up short. We heard some great ideas from you and Rothgar during the Sentinelâ€™s Fate beta that would probably help out here. Are these tweaks still on the horizon? A: The reason that rangers have not seen tweaks to their class is because according to our investigation and data from other sources (including parses) there are rangers that are able to parse even with assassins. When their abilities are timed correctly, and standing in the correct range, rangers are a mighty force. Obviously gear and buffs play a factor as well. That isnâ€™t to say that there will be no adjustments to rangers or mechanics that work differently for bows in the future. We have been loud and at times unreasonable. Yet we have supplied an AMAZING amount of hard data, parses and finite descriptions of why there are problems with the ranger class. Noob1974 pointed out the lag in response that the Ranger community has become accustom too over the years and was basically shut down with a trust me or not response. Hey guess where that is at? I made mention of what I thought of the UI changes (as requested) and its negative effect and I got a bit of a terse reply from the moderator; Striikor@Nektulos wrote: The highlighted is a quote from http://stationblog.wordpress.com/20...date-july-2010/ blog by â€“ Dave (Smokejumper) Georgeson (humorous side note there is ad dregarding EQ2 plat for sale at the bottom of his blog ) It is interesting to me that Rothgar/Xelgad now have no say over design initiatives. Was he talking out of turn on 02/06/2010. Who should we be trying to talk to? Who are we waiting for a response from? We are again suffering from the /ignore_ranger switch. I dug up the above reference. I know there are several others. Some of them in the BETA boards but others in the general posting areas. I would like to see all of them in one place. So I started this, help me finish it.
