The Raven is back from his retreat to Cuba and guess what he is now harder than before and just as elusive as before. He must of took some steroids while there as his health increased and they have removed the shotgun blast in favor for a new weapon called the sniper shot.
Lets start with the fact his health has been increased for the 30,000 it was to 55,000. YES 55,000 !!! WTF !!!
Next thing is the Combos, and now they are really important in the fight, while the first 2 are fine and work for everyone the 3rd one which causes the most damage is going to change from what I am reading into this lovely red message they put on the combo screen.
In my opinion they screwed up a crappy boss fight even more than it was. They have made it so people are just gonna get pissed and not do it and for the new players not to mention the veterans, it is just gonna frustrate them even more. This is a perfect example of why you are losing players at an alarming rate. You keep messing with the game dynamics and just piss everyone off. Did you ever hear the phrase "If it ain't broke dont fix it." ? Learn it fast my friends.
Bottom line here is that they screwed up a perfectly bad boss fight. In my opinion it is not worth the aggravation or time to do this thing. They added 25,000 more health to the boss, took away the gifting of the parts, messed with the combos and for a piece of loot that from all indications will be obsolete in 2 months & a couple of achievements and didn't increase the timer to allow more time for all these changes. What do they think we have time to just sit here for 8 hours to farm the items to just beat the Raven and if you don't beat him in the allotted time you wont see him like 3 more days after that. I think not, so the return of the Raven in my eyes is a huge failure and I guess I wont be getting this loot or achievements. Oh Well .
