Are classes getting a bit too samey?

Outside of something rare like zero, it does seem like every new class announced you can already pretty much guess their skill sets. boosters rushes flash jumps masterys stance attack/def/pdr buffs multi hit mob attack, multi hit single attack, buff with cooldown hyper skill, 170 ultimate attack with cooldown, maple warrior etc. Instead of making something entirely new, they pretty much just go through a checklist of skills before deciding on the maybe 1 little unique gimmick.

Heck they all kinda play the same too now that melee attack classes preeettty much hit freaking everywhere as well, and everyone flash jumps.

and its sad that for the classes that they try to fancy it up like thunderbreakers, they don't bother balancing it to the point that you'd think a more complex class should have higher damage potential, but in the end is weaker to folks that spam 1 button.

That's a very valid point. I feel as if this format though is what people are used to, and they'd probably complain if nexon changed it, since well people will find flaws in everything.[/quote]

Complainers in a nutshell, company does something nice, they complain, company tries to fix something they ACTUALLY wanted to get fixed, they complain, company nerfs a class, they complain (and they requested it).

So, if we change the class formula, they will complain, you know they ALWAYS will complain, tbh these people are starting to get boring to listen at.

@Thumbnail: But listen to these weird cases at which people that don't even care about the class still complain about it .

People are crying and ripping their hair off because some classes are more powerful than others.
What's the solution?
Make every class the same. I hope they're happy

They started 'generalizing' classes as newer classes got released and when they were revamping old ones.
l personally still hate it to this day, since almost all classes have no pro and con to them losing most of their uniqueness, with traits such as mobility, mobbing, bossing, etc.

You want to know why the classes are so indifferent? It's because Nexon is making all the classes solo-enabled. Everyone wants to be strong with their own class and be able to solo bosses with their own class. Just look at bishop. A class that wasn't supposed to be able to support itself well, yet has high critical damage, about 7 hits per line in Angel Ray, and sooo many buffs/healing moves. It's just moving to that point in the game where you just can't have a weak support class anymore. Storyline-wise, everyone has to get a lot stronger than they used to be because of the Black Mage.

Because it sounds like you do. People have different opinion, and they will almost always collide

It's power creep. Old classes that specialized in DPS were replaced by newer classes who have DPS and buffing, classes who supported well were becoming less useful because DPS classes began being favored. It's just led up to people wanting damage, everything else is a bonus.
