1. We don't have a 'classless system', we have a ONE class system. Everyone is an avatar. This lack of specialization presents two problems: A. It makes the combat system very difficult to balance. B. No one is really different. 2. We have two delivery methods for combat. The HEAT system and the DECK system. These two systems are currently unbalanced, the HEAT system is superior in almost every practical way. 3. There are still not enough counters in the game. For example: A. Trip. Nothing counters it. B. Poison. Nothing counters it. C. The entire schools of water and earth magic. Yes there is attunement, but that doesn't really work as a counter so much as a resistance. Ideally, we would have as many skills as possible work similar to Opportunity Strike, where a player needs to first Dodge before the other player can land a successful Opportunity Strike. In the case of Trip, it makes sense that another player would be less likely to be tripped if they were in a defensive stance, or if they were moving around. In the case of poison, it makes sense that a player could either built up a resistance to poisons, cast protective spells against poisons, or mitigate poison in some other meaningful way. 4. Endless power curves. The players that play the longest get all the power. This creates an unfair playing field where only the top 5% of XP earners have a legit chance of being successful in pvp, and only the top players get access to high end content in pve. Decay is not preventing or even slowing down the top 5%. Decay needs turned up on these players, like yesterday. 5. Buffs are redundant and exploitable. In order to make buffs both meaningful and fair, we can't allow players to use them without sacrificing something in return. The idea that everyone should get a strength, intelligence and dexterity buff at the same time is ludicrous. It only creates a situation where players need all three buffs to compete. And that's the problem with buffs in general, you need as many as you can get because there's no practical downside to using them all.
