I’ve seen a lot of arguments why raising stats on a new tier is bad.
I’ve seen some arguments that the stat increase is negligible, so there is no need to worry…
However, I haven’t seen any arguments yet as to why stat increase is good/necessary (at least from a players perspective)?
Maybe someone could argue the upside/benefit of a-net adding increasing the stat budget on this new tier?
Why is no one complaining about exotics having better stats than rares? Because exotics were already in the game at launch. I'm willing to bet people wouldn't think twice about ascended armor if it was in game at launch. All this boils down to is people not liking that they have to put in more effort than what they have already to get max stats.
People are complaining and claiming that with this update gw2 will become a gear-grind like WoW, and yet this is nowhere near true. People are just complaining because they can. There is no indication that anet will introduce higher tiers than ascended, and so to assume that they will is absurd.
The reasons why they added higher stats and not just infusion slots to exotics or rares is because people wanted some form of progression between exotics and legendaries. So anet makes content for those people, and now everyone is upset and butthurt. People are always going to complain if they can, there's no use trying to justify it.
