The amount of hypocrisy in this thread is ridiculous. You've got players with lower stats crying about players with higher stats crying all the while acting like they're not crying just as badly themselves. Now I can understand the frustrations of those with lower stats and I do think they took the buff too far but it was clear that the map was not working as intended. The campaign was about as hard as insane glitter yet the rewards were on par with the best weapons in the game and it gave a crazy amount of xp and a nice amount of mana on top of that. Survival was easier than any of the shards maps or harder new maps yet it had equal if not better and a much higher quantity of drops.
Ideally I think the difficulty should be put somewhere between where it started and where it's at now with the drops possibly scaled back just a tad so that it can be the bridge it was meant to be. By that I mean it should help players to progress towards the high stat range and prepare them to go after the best gear in the harder survivals, it should not simply allow them to jump straight to that level.
Now Trendy deserves a lot of blame for releasing a map that wasn't functioning properly and the way that they handled the response but given a little time I believe they will get it in tune to a point where both sides will be happy. I think everyone just needs to have a little patience and stop all of the petty bickering and name calling. Don't let one screw up wreck the community.
