When you role play with someone who is a good and consistent role player for years....and i seriously mean years....and then all of a sudden that person stops...starts crafting and seems to gain a level a week between levels 30 and 40....this is what I mean when a persons play has been affected. This is an extreme example but they are kicking around at the minute
If this is what you have seen, I agree 110% there is an issue. Not sure if it is totally the systems fault, but it has its place in conjunction with the player. I am taking for granted this happened right after Epic came into play with the expansion. I am also going to pose the possibility that this person/peopl were perhaps close to maxed on the level 20 cap?
Point taken....I now stand informed.
That being said, I am not sure the proposal will not do more harm than good, but I at least understand fully the basis for it. Perhaps an RP based reward system incorporated to allow epic progression would have been something to take a hard look at then. Hindsight is 20/20.

I saw those examples and it is indeed a matter of personal taste. It does not neccesarily, IMO, have the same impact of Foxes reply. Given Foxes simple example, I think there is enough impact to warrent his suggestion to tell you the truth, and now that I see where he is coming from, I appreciate where it came from.
Not that I think it would have helped, as the introduction of Epics and Epic feats is what drove his examples to race up the ladder, from what I can discern anyways.
Personal taste is more....err...personal taste. In a MMORPG, the mean is creating a system that encourages as many players as possible in most cases, as everyone benefits the most from this concept. (My personal opinion)
While I understand, I personally do not think personal taste in this regard warrents a look at change, as some of those complaints are easily overcome (beef up Balors so they are Epic also), and the rest do not seem on the surface to me to be that impactful to the entire playerbase.
As you said already though, and I do feel this is true...the milk is spilt already, blame Bioware.
