that the ROR devs have done. If the devs never buffed any of the live classes, and just nerfed the Marauder, then the Marauder would still probably be really good (since they were very strong on live). However, the combination of nerfing this class while subsequently heavily buffing many other classes has done a double whammy of power creep here, where classes are now heavily surpassing the Mara in terms of overall power and usefulness.

yes.... very true

Don't necessarily disagree with the Thunderous Blow revert but a ton of Order classes were given huge nerfs. Knight, SW, BW, Slayer, Engineer, WL. Chosen and DOK were also nerfed to a lesser extent.

No Order class really got any major buffs other than Assault Shadow Warriors.
I'll be honest, I just came back to ROR for basically the first time (I had played a little in T1 right when this server came out), and my knowledge of the past changes is solely based on going through and reading all the patch notes, of which I don't recall every single tweak. So what you are saying may be true, but I cannot verify it. From a cursory understanding though (and I'll go double check later), I don't think you are 100% correct. For instance, Engineers and Magus are definitely stronger than they were on life and have been buffed. Remember that I'm comparing to live, not a classes ROR hayday.

I can double check later and confirm if my theory is correct or not, but you do bring up a fair point. I'm not saying I inherently disagree with you, just that I would need to independently come to that conclusion by analyzing the data, and not just taking your word for it.

EDIT!!!!!: You've inspired me to do a full balance review/pass, and I have just finished compiling all of the balance changes in changelogs, which I will then do class based analysis on. I can say this, from my cursory reivew here: my theory above is 100% correct. Remember, this isn't about Order vs Destro, but Mara vs Everyone Else, and I can say with confidence that the Mara has had the least amount of balance changes/love/buffs from the dev team of any class in this game (I may be wrong once I get the data aligned, but that is what it seems like). Regardless, I will be providing hard evidence to prove my points, opinions are fine but not worth a whole lot.
