Ah, yeah I should have parsed that with my sarcastic goggles on. No. I was beign serious. It;s a good thing they balance quickly and decisively at the start and not let the critics of the game mode have a legitimate reason to complain.
It's still likely that the game mode is not totally balanced (mage seems very strong) but Robes is just....broken. Glad they realized that quickly and went to remove it.
