This is for RockX, the developer who worked on Captains for the Helm's Deep class overhaul.
I was in Beta and in B1 I was so upset with the changes I considered leaving the game. It got better, largely because you were serious about communicating with the players (including the more hostile ones) and by the end of Beta I was largely placated. I'm not saying even now that I prefer the changes to what was before; I spent a big chunk of my LIFE getting my Captain set up the way I liked and it was a huge adjustment for me.
I'm having fun playing the Captain, Rock. Some of the trade-offs I'm actually quite happy with. More than happy, even: the change to Cry of Vengeance in the latest patch is freaking AWESOME. Love it, love it, love it. And when I first read that one of the trait trees was for tanking I thought I had to be reading it wrong. And guess what? I'm running yellow line pretty much exclusively right now. Having the forced taunt and the ability to stand my ground (and protect my wife's characters) is very gratifying.
So this is just me saying thanks. You did good. Real good. Tell Turbine you should get a raise, okay?
