I have reached a absolute breaking point with my toons I have paid subscription for and worked so hard to level being slaughtered by mobs that are far below me. Losing control of my toons ROUND ONE and not being given any control until they die or are near death is not workable. I farmed and farmed for the best gear to STOP this and then found out that I had poured so many hours into this in vain. I understand it is not every battle. That is not the point. Fabricated difficulty is just poor game design. One of the cardinal sins of video game design is removing the control of the player. There has got to be a better way to do this than what is currently implemented. Nostalgia has started to wear off due to the frequent mind numbing frustration of watching my toons die because mobs all have godlike powers over them. Soon this will translate into my money and time going towards a game that does not stoop to fabricated difficulty.
