TBH the more I think about this issue, the more it bugs. For the most part I am 99% on board with S7 and the dev team regarding the changes that will happen. THIS is something that I think we have 100% agreement on, that the weapons we spent on that were thought to be the best PvE weapons going, are not.
Seems a simple fix that would have 100% support from the community.
(having to regrind for rep doesn't seem so bad if at least the multiple sets of MK XII space and ground weapons I already have are still worth something)
