That is probably true. The point is I'm a T6 GAA getting Thunder on T7 targets. If we were both T7 I would concede the point quite happily. I am also out-earned by the two fighters on my team (both T7) and neither got an Ace (Ace and Thunder are supposed to be "equivalent", are they not?)
Like Wartot, everyone cried about GAA getting too much credit for doing a "Mindless simple job." Regardless of the general pop not having the ability to do it effectively and with out lawn darting. That being said, WG listened and they adjusted the values accordingly. I'm not sure if there has ever been a bonus for being a lower tier hitting higher tier targets, if there was I never noticed it on the live server while progressing through my IL line. This screen shot would be a good representation of WG listening to their customer base and disappointing those who actually appreciate a GAA's role, and appeasing the majority who don't enjoy the GAA line and make proclamations of how easy it is because they have never been challenged while playing it.
Anyone who can pull off a thunder badge, get a kill or two and still survive in a game of 15 is someone who would appreciate the GAA's job and why they are rewarded so handsomely. I've watched the majority of people I've seen whine on these forums about GAA in their own GAA and saw them struggling to pull 60 points in a game with 4 IL's and no fighters. They're the ones upset that they got rewarded so much experience for their poop effort, because to them it was simple and mindless. Unfortunately they didn't look up and realize how far behind the curve they are and that it might actually take some form of methodology, temperance, and patience to succeed with out failure. Then they make their way here and scream for a nerf, resulting in us who have grown to appreciate and master the IL line suffer and be forced to move on to something else.
In it self, might not be a bad thing! From what I've read, this is common place in WoWP and the more experienced veterans use these waves of nerfs and buffs to max out each of their lines. While others see them as exploits, and "Over Powered," the veterans seem to see things as an opportunity. So you have to ask yourself, are you ready for the next opportunity?
