That's not the point, at all. Surges do alot of damage, and it is imo a broken mechanic even with current skillgain. It has nothing to do with people catching up, but with the fact that with enhanced skillgain, surging spells occurs way to often, and it makes the pvp really bad. It will be bad in mage fights, but It will be a very big problem in archery vs magery fight.
