AtB's different because of what's going on around it.

When was the last time you worried about survival? I haven't since S7.
When was the last time you worried about 0 Aux? I haven't since LoR.

The various things that "balanced" AtB are no longer a concern. Tada, folks don't have to think about it - don't have to worry about it - they can just run it...a boom in popularity. It's been around since DOFFs were introduced before the game went F2P.

The *entire* game, since LoR, has been changed towards better survival and better, well, everything! It's a bit unfair to single out aux2bat for the 'consequences.' Everyone benefits.

And let's talk 'balance' for a moment, shall we? Like it used to be you needed '3,000 exp each' points in Energy Weapons Specialization. Nowadays every joker out there gets +2.0% CrtH, stackable Embasssy boffs, each worth a full 9/9 in Energy Weapons Specialization! And Roms benefit from this the most. But yeah, but let's nerf Engineers again, cuz they got it too good already! /sarcasm.
