Sometimes the community's view on balance can be even more important than the Dev's view though.nuchey wrote:Because I find it odd how much this game has changed since day 1. Compare it to the few tweaks that HW1 had and it’s obvious that they listen to the community too often. Everyone complains about something until it gets nerfed into oblivion or buff too much. Marines, forgehog, yayap’s cannon fodder are all good examples of this.BreezyStarfish1 wrote:Marauders are only an issue WITH Thick Hide, otherwise they're another trash unit.
343 does a good job listening to the community, I really don't know what you're complaining about.
If the community is crying about something, something has to be done. Jeff Kaplan of the overwatch team says this all the time, and while he's a meme now, it can be compared here!
It matters because aspects of the game like Marauders might remain untouched by the community until they are "Touched" by the Devs. This might be good for a community standpoint, but it's like throwing out a perfectly good line of code!
