Why on Earth would you have this at the exact same time you have a FP event?

When I click for details it just takes me to the PTS 1.1 info page.

I just wanna know what kind of drastic over-nerfs we can expect this time? Is it too much to ask to throw some buffs to under-powered/under-utilized weapon systems while we're at it...ATMs, SRMs, small lasers, AMS, etc.? Why do you keep ignoring real issues such as the PIR-1 MG spam, the PSR system, LRMageddon, etc. and still try to stubbornly move forward with these unnecessary laser nerfs?

Are you not aware that these kinds of proposed "changes" (nerfs) are the exact thing that's driving away your playerbase? Stop focusing on nerfing things that aren't a real issue, and start buffing bad weapon systems and making actual content (maps, not just mechpacks), you know, to keep players playing.

Have you not seen your metrics lately? Rapidly declining player numbers over the course of the summer...[not] coincidentally starting around the time you dropped that first golden nugget of PTS Alpha Balance 1.0.

Who on God's green Earth is running the show up at PGI, and letting these kinds of things even happen in the first place?

They didn't just blanket nerf all da lazorz this time, bois!

So it starts today, but there is 0 info on what is going on. What do you do during the week or from the last PTS to this one?

Very curious to know if the event people know what the PTS people are doing, and vice a versa.

Also curious to know if the PTS people know what the PTS contains. PTS notes hello?

Looks like 0.2 for DHS, 0.14 SHS. Looks like 0 added heat capacity for both.

My Hellbringer's 4 cERML 2 HLL alpha overheats on Tourmaline, goes to 95% heat on Polar. Heat efficiency went from 1.35 to 1.46.
