How long before...?Follow

How long before Trion starts nerfing and buffing so called OP or under powered classes and features?

(And I am aware that there will most likely be at least one of each of those but people don't care about them. They care about that class that always kills them. Now because a better player is playing that class but because that class is 'broken'.)

It happens to every game and people are already complaining about the lack of mods, so I am curious about what everybody else thinks about it. Will it never happen or are there some silent countdowns out there?

I did play a little bit of WoW and I play League of Legends more regularly lately. Lately, LoL has been a perpetual cycle of said nerfing and buffing because people don't know how to deal with characters. This leads to them throwing around the term OP and Riot in the end (has) to listen or at least does.

Edit: Poor grammar and Spelling mistake.

Well, if they do the Beta right, hopefully nothing too horrible will rear it's head until at least 1 or 2 months after release. I'm not naive enough to think that something won't slip through Beta but hopefully they aren't slamming balance patches in within the first week like some games have had to do in the past year...

If you are going to count beta class balancing as nerfing and buffing, then quite possibly it's already started if they have had enough chance to examine the data they collected in Beta1.

Beta kind of counts but that is the whole point of Alpha/Beta stages. I mean more the game is out and people have been playing and nobody can figure out how to play the Cleric correctly and Warriors have a perfect build from day 1 a.b. (After Beta).

People will start complaining that Clerics are under powered and Warriors are OP. (An example of course). Will Trion just say grow up and learn how to play the game without us holding your hand or will they 'run to our aid' and buff Clerics and nerf Warriors. I am hoping the first choice.

But how long until they do start messing with classes to make them balanced? (a.k.a. easier for noobs)

Edit: Apparently I cannot spell before noon.

It happens in every game and honestly, it should happen in every game. Yes, if you are good you can deal with most of the problems others can't, but what if you're fighting against another good player that has the OP skill/character?
