It seems not everybody is posting in this thread in an objective manner and dismissing the notion out of hand due to some other somewhat less sensible nerf request threads. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
May I remind you all, that the Mk XI blue Plasma/Disruptor DHC easily farmed from a PVE mission is putting out 26.9% more damage than a Mk XII purple equivilent that's nowhere near as easy or even certain to aquire. I don't know about you, but that seems broken to me.
I don't know, maybe some of us are too attatched to our new plas/dis of doom to want it nerfed/fixed and are trying to sweep this thread under the carpet as the ramblings of a barely competent PVPer? Consider this, in another thread somebody suggested that these nerfs were being called for on gear that the OP could not aquire. I think we're seeing the same in reverse here. People are defending the existance of the better easier to aquire item.
If we're going to be taken seriously as a communtiy, both objectivity and honesty are necessary, not derailing threads and claiming other members of OPVP are merely trolling us and relegating what is actually a valid point to the realm of nonsense. We're better than that, surely?
