    60 fire and 60 air is enough to compete against guys who have 2-3 schools maxed? Please, enlighten me as to how I should defeat them with fireball and lightning strike xD

    Yup, I remember that, I thought things were just fine the way they were. I really wish AV hadn't listened to the small minority of complaining players back then, I think things were much more balanced then. Archery was the main form of combat which made PvP take a lot more skill--> therefore making it a lot more fun and competitive. Now it's whoever grinded most wins.

    So I'm trying to figure out what you consider GY + Invictus + Afghan to be if not a zerg LMAO. You were allied way before the quad siege.

    Good videos from Val Roth. I prefer his solo PK videos because you get to see a lot more skill. lol @ his ping.

    Don't see how one player's successes translate instantly to an alliance's overall competency level.

    @ the melee whiners:

    Melee in a large scale siege like that just cuts your side's damage output down as you can only efficiently engage in melee 1 vs 1, and that's not what large scale combat is about. Teaming up on someone while you both melee just ends up causing too much friendly fire and it prevents the heavy artillery behind you from engaging your target - they'll hit you too.

    There's a place for melee but it's not so much in a large scale siege.

    Also, Val has 400ish ping and melee is difficult as hell at that latency. He still manages to kick ass with it, however. No idea how.

    Yes.. Well.. As far as i'm concerned magic should be utility/support...

    as far as many others are aware it's used for more than utility/support. I've always thought magic as illusions, torture, mind control.

    I think Damage fits in quite well as well as crowd control, but they need to balance it.

    His beginner movies where awesome. His latest production mirrors the game. Magic spamfest with very little variation. Lets hope the expansion fixes it.

    While I am glad that melee and archery are going to be expanded in some way(because it needs it), I am happy that you mentioned this because noone else really has. I like magic, and I wish the aoe's were a little lighter I am glad it is the main focus of large scale battles. It is just more fun. I remember when magic was nerfed and noone even wanted it. It was not fun, and while the gring is rough, it is a small price to pay imo.

    Its obvious to anyone thats ever seen a single siege video or been in a fight in-game that currently magic is OP and needs to be balanced to give a more meaningful role to melee and archery. I think we'll see some of this in next patch. Those taking the other side are too much in love with their magic to accept any nerfing.

    Just to mention it, I am a magic-slinger. Soon with three decent elemental AoE's. Among other thing one-shotting some mobs with Impale.
