I'm starting to think that whoever originally coded stuff no longer works there, the code base is a mess, and whoever is trying to work with it now can't parse what it does.

Well, it was supposed to add a new powerset too, right?

Except that got rid of everything everybody had in their banks, so they rolled that patch back.

It was supposed to add a new archetype, not a new power set.  It was supposed to add several powers.  But still, an 812 MB patch that wasn't even supposed to do all that much broke a bunch of things and forced them to roll it back.  Which meant another 826 MB patch to revert the game to the way it was.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

It is admittedly a problem, but Cryptic will fix it eventually.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?
