I believe a better question is (and i'm paraphrasing the OP);
Dear Bran, et al.
What (if any) intention does Cryptic have, on the possibility of improving the existing "Combat Log" functionality? Such improvements include the ability to filter the log in terms of damage type, incoming healing/damage, outgoing healing/damage, and above all make the Combat Log a bit more understandable.
If nothing else, i'd love it if the Combat Log stops "spitting out" information after I have died, so I can read what killed me without having to scroll through the log several dozen lines (if I reach to at all, before the text disappears in the spam)
