Yup, as a 510 GS pleb I took pride in being able to kill softcap+ players, and I did it often. Post-patch I'm getting killed in a fraction of a second by players with 260+ AP and doing next to no damage to them. "Balance." And before someone says you shouldn't be able to kill someone with 50 gearscore on you, if you need the AP/DP scaling to not get killed by someone who has 50+ less gearscore than you in a 1v1, you might want to consider learning your class. Look at Darkcrusade. He's a great guy, but a mediocre Valk. All that grinding has softened his brain, and even he is going into RBF, jumping in, killing 5+ softcap players (only assuming by their guilds), then jumping out with half his health left after getting CC chained for 10 seconds. Come on now.
