    They are relatively done with massive nerfs after I7, if you listen to the w00t radio interview, they are focusing on positive Issues now as they got most if not all of the nerfing out of their system with ED. You will see some global nerfs in terms of like no one shot kills anymore (which is actually irrelevant since most players who can pull them off, didnt do so often anyways [Stalkers come to mind], it was usually an AS and a follow up or a 3rd attack)

    You might see some little tweaks to the new sets like Energy Aura (Overload) stuff like that, and if anything some BUFFs to COV ATs that need a little love, like Dominators. I don't expect much in the way of nerfs anymore.

    But omfg holy shit at the new Issue. I can't wait! ELEC MELEE!
