The entire purpose of macro settings like castsequence and reset commands are to automate choices.
This does not make them not-choices. It means you're using the in-game tools to automate some things. It's no different than fitting an Unleash Elements into a macro for Heroic Will on Ultraxxion; the optimized gameplay is to use Unleash Elements just prior to Heroic Will if no other instants are available. Macroing it just makes it easier to execute, it does not mean you're not choosing to use UE. That argument is senseless and ridiculous. By writing the macro, you're making that choice. You're coding it into the button press that you will be keybinding to that macro. Automation does not negate choice.
Don't be disingenuous.You claim that my suggestion would not make a difference, and that we would still use FT for everything cause it does more damage. Endus is trying to claim that my suggestion would "force us to use FB" like we are forced to use FT now. Which is it?
You were explicitly trying to buff FB to make it the "default" choice for PvP. That was where you were trying to force people to use FB by buffing the ability, so that it was more appealing in PvP than FTW under most circumstances.
You then, suggested giving FTW the same DPS boost as it currently gets, just relegated mostly to passive damage, and boosted considerably to boot to make up for the loss of the 40% boost to Lava Lash. Which, I ALSO pointed out, would completely negate the above intent to make FB the "default" PvP imbue, because you're getting a bunch more damage through FTW and the only reason FTW wins right now is because it has a damage advantage.
Undefetter isn't contradicting me. He and I are both pointing out that your own argument is self-contradictory.
If you think FB isn't used because it doesn't provide enough damage, then you would be arguing that it has to gain damage relative to FTW, in which case you're arguing that there shouldn't be much to choose from between the two imbues; that you don't lose much of anything with regards to DPS for choosing to imbue FB for control. This makes FB the go-to choice in PvP, because you buffed it and nerfed FTW, and it's not good design.
If you want to spread the 40% boost to LL to LL itself, and buff FTW accordingly to make up for that loss, PvP Enhancement will continue to use FTW for the damage boost, even if it's mostly passive, because the damage boost is ALREADY why they pick that over FB, because damage is more necessary in the current paradigm than additional control for the most part.
And both arguments contradict the other. Neither works on its own, and neither CAN work with the other. That's why we keep pointing this out.
