To clarify, me asking to developers to go test their own changes is not sign of toxicity or anger, but a sign of hope that the people punching in the numbers remain aware of potential consequences and test their own changes.

I'll go ahead and reply from my perspective, since I believe whatever Wargrimnir will reply with, you will remain unpleased and with personal issues with him, even though this shouldn't be personal at all.
There is a balance team, which includes around 7 staff members, from different departments. A proposal based on multiple threads, opinions and thoughts gets prepared, then the balance team discusses it for weeks. In fact, since the rSH patch, the related balance channel was extremely active, every hour, for days. Does the whole proposal need to adhere to your own vision of rSH? No. But your feedback, and other players' feedback help in shaping changes in the near future - as you know this won't be the final patch related to rSH abilities getting adjusted.
Wargrimnir is part of the balance team and multiple other teams. Does his opinion/feedback always get implemented? No, just like any other staff member. There are multiple thoughts and opinions, just like any other team and community in the world. Some opinions will be implemented while others won't - and we don't get upset from one another for that. We understand that a final decision will have to be taken. We understand that changes can be tested.
I'll go further and let you know that Wargrimnir was completely against shards dropping from players, yet they were implemented. He had another idea for SoR, yet it wasn't added. He had another thought of Chosen, yet it wasn't implemented, another one was. He was in favor of more rewards for Twitch Drops and in favor of a more attractive, reshaped and more rewarding Ranked system.
There are more than 20 channels Wargrimnir is part of, if you think he's to be blamed for everything you dislike then I have bad news for you, you were misleading yourself for some time. There are several teams within the larger RoR team, they surely could involve the same staff members, if there's a relation to their own field/expertise.
You're a veteran player, and I assume you're mature enough to understand that this is a game developed and maintained by people on their free time, even if it took away their weekends.
You don't know us personally, you don't know Wargrimnir, Max, Dalen, Secrets and other staff members on a personal level. You don't know what they work in real life and for how many hours. But you still chose to openly attempt to bash someone on a personal level.
You don't know what each staff member works on here, and where/how much do they help. You just know what you read on the forums, and you'll never read "Hi, I'm X from the staff and I did A, B and C for you guys."
I would discuss the way you turned toxic and while being in testers channel, you asked devs to test things by themselves, while they trusted you to be mature and professional. But I guess you were just filled with anger. It happens.
To finalize, I would like to ask you to not drag this thread into a discussion that shouldn't have even happened here. Please feel free to contact anyone from the team on the forums or on Discord.
Again, I ask everyone posting after this post to please stick to the thread's original topic. The team is always available on Discord to discuss other critical matters, we will also have Q&As where we'd love to answer questions that you think are critical, over voice chat, in front of hundreds of people.
I have given my feedback and I respect the wish to not completely derail the patch notes, so I won't post again.
