I am always seconds from death, and if I screw up even one cycle, I get nova'd. Fine by me, means I have to pay attention and actually have to think and play properly.
Yeah, I know I can't have the best of everything, I accepted that when I built my first multi-purpose build but achieving the fine balance between DPS build and tank build that should count for something.

I cannot condone this, even if I must accept it.
As for this, the higher damage enemies are going to suffer most if they do it percentage based but all they have said is that they are doing it, they haven't said how much they are doing it, it may not (should not) make NPCs a low powered joke however they should not be so powerful as to make the causal player a joke either. I have a friend who effectively tells me where to stick myself at the very mention of the term "DPS" (even if it isn't me saying it) and in all fairness they have a point, I'm all for harder enemies, by which I mean enemies with abilities and an AI with a sense of self preservation playing by our rules (maybe with a few upgrades in the borg department), that would provide a challenge and would make me happy without getting facerolled.

(Sorry about the long paragraph)
