The reason there are no attempts at fixing the class balance issue is strictly due to and economic issue.
The developers will not entertain any change requests in the game unless AGE sends them Money to look into this.
Unless AGE sees a financial benefit to a change, they will not pay for any changes.
All of the changes that are in this game that are different that what is run in Korea are all money makers for Aeria.
So unless people can present an argument to AGE for the financial benefit to AGE to incorporate a change, all we do is just add bandwidth to the conversations here.
Now these conversations are entertaining, they will never go anywhere.
I for one say, the Archer class is the biggest nerfed class in this game. Unless you are uber of the ubers, you are not going to do any real damage to people with unlapised gear.
Bottom line, no money, no change.
