Johan Pilestedt here, now in the Chief Creative Officer position at Arrowhead. First, I want to thank you, the community, for clearly voicing your opinions and concerns for the balance and fun of the game. With that, we have gone over a lot of the Weapon and Stratagem balance in our latest patch (01.000.400), and we wanted to share with you a little more information on the decisions we made.
