Hello Rogue Reddit!
In a previous stream we often spoke about weapon mastery and its impact on balance. I've seen many a post, tweet and comments centered around its removal from the game but I would like to focus this post to be a discussion around Ranked, Weapon Mastery and where we should go from here.
In our eyes, we see Ranked to be an experience where the players work around a tight and consistent ruleset with known variables(i.e. they understand what they and their enemy have access to and the decisions/strategies around it). Weapon Mastery is a system that currently runs counter to that in that it allows Rogues to either push their strengths further or shore up their weaknesses.
To that end we are leaning towards disabling Weapon Mastery in the Ranked Ruleset. However, I'd like to create an open forum here to discuss that here with the players who play ranked and value that experience.
