Default Hybrid xp penalty

Meant to ask last night, not sure if it was brought up during the stream but will the xp penalty be lifted with the velious expansion?

Did they say on the twitch stream if they were going to release it for us as if it was 2-3 months into the old live Velious release; where this had already been changed?

That was not mentioned. Basically it sounded like they where going to follow the velious patch cycle as closely as possible; if a change was made 1 month into velious on live, it will try to be changed 1 month into velious here.

Just remove it already.

Hybrids have suffered on P99 for FAR longer with this penalty than they did on live.

Making them wait for another month or two after Velious is released is just plain mean.

I see it as the xp penalty timeline is already screwed, hybrid penalty only existed for about 1.5 years on live before it was removed due to being a really bad idea, here this bad idea has remained for 5 years and has totally skewed the class balance compared to live.

Yep, exactly my point.

@Rogean, please re-consider this penalty.

Oh boohoo. The penalty only really has bite if you solo. Does it suck? Sure. Is it going away? Yep.

If it bothers you that much just play something else for 4 months until the penalty is lifted ^^

Not trying to be snide here, but frankly the whining is annoying. If you enjoy the class play it. If the penalty bothers you, don't.

Actually, you are being snide. And rude. And completely ignorant.
I was not whining about this, but merely pointing out that the live servers had this penalty for 1.5 years before they realized it was unneeded, whereas it has existed on P99 for much longer than this already.

For the record, the penalty also has bite if you group. And there have been a lot of discrimination on the server as a result of hybrid xp penalties.

It's time for it to go. Actually, it was time about 3 years ago, but que sera, sera.
