I think SteelReign is completely correct.
I too love the combat in this game, and want to see it succeed, I just feel the matchmaking and progression wrapper around that combat is flawed.
It will take some time for us to get Dreadnought to a point where it feels right across the board, just bear with us. It's what we plan on doing through the closed beta and then some. It's looking like the hotfix tomorrow will contain the matchmaking adjustments that were expected in next weeks. So that's something to look forward too. We'll be talking more about it as soon as we receive more info, for example, the time it lands tomorrow, etc.
