Developers, you should be more open with the community. You made a change that basically started a 40 page thread which ended up as about 10 pages suggesting better ideas and 30 pages of insulting the developers... and then you reverted the change.
Look, I am going to go out on a limb here and make a suggestion:
Why not just ASK the community what they think about things that the dev team is considering?
Any Hunter could have told you that it wasn't a good idea, had you asked.
The most knowledgeable people about any one class in particular likely aren't the developers, the players are. After all, they likely PLAY the game for a living because of how well they do it instead of making the game for a living.
We can let you know what is broken, and we can give suggestions on things.. But if you never tell us what you are trying to fix how can we help you make the game better?
Sure, you don't like how people flame you every time you say something, usually because everyone has their own idea on how things should be. When you talk you are never asking for our opinions, you are just letting us know what is happening, and those people who don't like it just get mad.
If you instead just ask them for their ideas, instead of telling them what is going to happen no matter what, they would probably respond more positively.
