The best place to give us feedback is on our official forums in the PTR Discussion Section or on our official Discord. Please note that the changes we have made are in prototype – there may be bugs and there may be balance issues, or unpolished rough edges. Please make an effort as you’re testing these to distinguish between needed fixes or tweaks, and core concepts that just aren’t working.
