New Critical Update Brings Down Power School?

After reading the new updates for the Critical Hit change in the update notes in the test realm, I find that it's unfair to schools that mostly focus on damage, like Fire or Storm. Now because of this new update, all Storm School members will be dragged down even more than previously. One of the only reasons that Storm had an OKAY chance in PVP in the first place was because of the Critical Hit damage boost that it was given before. Ice School is now one of the strongest schools for PVP because of the health boosts that it is given. They can reach up to around 7k to 8k hp which is a whole lot compared to the 2k to 3.5k hp that Storm School has. Now because of the decrease in Critical Hits, Storm School will no longer be one of the strongest schools. Even Fire School is affected now. As the second strongest school, even they now have a disadvantage to the other schools. Life School and Ice School and even Death School are now in the lead, basically switching roles on how the School system should be. Just from all the handicaps that Storm has, from low hp to bad accuracy, now its damage is being affected more than ever. Where is the Storm School's place in PVP now that it's one chance at showing its role as the strongest school has went down? What about Fire School? Fire School is now decreased in power due to the new critical system that will be implemented. Please return the Critical System as it used to be. With the past few updates, there has been less of a balance than ever before.

storms health isnt as low as you say most max storms have 4300 to 4500 health. Yes ice wizards can get 8000 health but they will have bad stats with that gear just like storm can get 5000 health and have lower stats as well. most ice wizards will have 7200-7400 health. I dont think fire has any thing to worry about they still have burning rampage that does an insane amount of damage and is almost impossible to defend against from second. Along with fire beetle that is a huge advantage it is 2 pips and gives 3 buffs after it hits. Life beetle is the same and only gives one trap ice bird gives one blade myth troll gives one trap. Plus the buffs on fire beetle are even buffed from normal 25% traps to 35% traps. storms accuracy is not that bad at all anymore, they get a ton of accuracy from malistare gear. the critical system is a good change for pvp before storm would go first in a 4v4 and get a shadow pip and critical land and do 6000+ on the other team first round before they could do a thing. storm is weak in 1v1 but in 2v2 3v3 and 4v4 they rule the arena. I have done allot of practice pvp 4v4 and mostly unless the team has a storm immune healer the team with the most storm wizards wins.

disagree (ice not overpower) not all ice will have same gear pair to others ice wizard! beside storm more powerful school of them all except ice (ice not overpower) heath is nothing (I am a ice) mostly try every gear in pvp try win rank pvp (not one good pvp mostly trash for ice) wouldn't be so, rude immunity (ice wouldn't never chance) beside I like new ice and hope become more stronger that better then immunity crafting gear of storm and fire!

mine ice doesn't have malistaire gear mostly possible to get because dungeon still too hard even with nerf critical (still too hard) same thing for exalted one shot gauntlet from crown shop because they have higher critical then us!

disagreed. If its anything that needs to be buffed its the death school. If its anything that needs to be nerfed its the life school. They have super high health, critical on heals, luminious weaver, high damage, and resistance. Hungry Caterpillar is super op, dealing massive damage and 850 absorb.

I think that changing the critical damage from 2.0 x to 1.25 x is gonna make pvp a lot more fair. Storms only rely on critical in pvp. When they should be relying on tons of resist and extra damage! Changing the critical is actually a great way of relying on new strategies for pvp.

about myth only school don't have a healing spell how is fair to be unfair as storm only school get a spell of insane bolt of moon damage?

how this fair and unfair others school get healing spell (non-4 myth)
how this fair and unfair others school don't get spell like insane bolt (storm does least there insane bolt would kill them)
