I understand what you mean here but it's super hard to balance for all "brackets" cause at some GS range it still gonna be unbalanced anyway. Like here I tried some classes (tamer, kuno, archer, ninja and few more) and I do not see any major issues at this GS range tbh. Here is an example that I recorded few minutes ago on a trial kuno vs ~600 GS striker (http://prntscr.com/qnqi4y). He melts because the way he build his DP at this GS is pretty much worthless. https://streamable.com/e9upi And on the other hand me (285//313 2x pen rce) vs another geared player most EU players know anyway. https://streamable.com/biqfe I did a lot of misplays here for sure and even had a huge brain lag in the end but fighting baten does that to you :-P At no point I find the damage I take too much (and archer is a super squishy class as we know) meanwhile he takes like no damage at all without a CC and when it comes to CC even the archer melee combo (which I can't finish due to pet stiffness) that is broken af, I can't really take him down. Wizard is actually one of the easier matchups for archer and it's played quite simple (this clip is a bad showcase tho). All you do is trying to pressure his FG as much as possible and fish for a CC. At high gear vs a very good player it's easier said than done tho. Now imagine we would remove only AP brackets like a lot of people (I know you don't) want it... game literally would not function at high gear anymore. Imo the gear balance is still not what it could be but from my experience it's quite fair in most brackets that I experienced and tested myself so far.
