Went way overboard.
Went a little overboard.
Is just right.
Didn't go far enough.
Didn't go nearly far enough.
The new flamers are a fair bit cheaper arent they?
The flamer nerf to go with the new model release shows they just cant win on the forums no matter what as people still say it is a money grab.
Makes no business sense what so ever..... "Lets release a new plastic line with large mould costs we want to recoup but reduce the game incentive to get them."
While I work in a business advisory role you dont need my experience to see that the nerf was not a smart profit making move.
I think it shows a genuine effort on the part of gw to improve 8th game balance at the expense of short term profit which is a good thing. I hope they keep it up. The soul grinder rules seem fair

The track record in 8th updates lends plenty of evidence for a trend of overcompensating for previously OP units (mortar, ghouls [maybe], etc.) and also a trend of making BS shooting significantly weaker. More radical speculations about trying to manipulate consumer choices by trying to discourage people from buying/using their products, especially products they just invested significant money into creating a new mold for, is just not very compelling.
