No, it's called 'test your build', and maintaining game-balance-developers that only play one-sided content only KNOW one sided content. The perfect example was already brought up-the Bortascrew flying office building.

On PAPER it looks FEARSOME, but in PLAY...it sucks rocks.

It's the difference between academic "knowledge" and actual hands-on KNOWLEDGE, or why the SKILLED engineer listens to the mechanic who's responsible for building and maintaining his project, and the BEST ones have hands-on, tools-on, experience working in the industry they're designing for-it's the same exact way with GAMING. (whether Pen&Paper&Dice gaming, or Computer games.)
"when you're out of Birds of Prey, you're out of ships."

Look into Vanilla PvP if you're tired of the endless pursuit of grind, utterly unbalanced selections of geardo-inspired traits, and generally unbalanced and careless 'development' made mostly to turn this game into a second job.
