My reading and specially my comprehension skills are fine thank you very much. Every player should consider changes like those in question by @Spoon as intentional. Also player should have been informed of past Q&A that took place, where such question was addressed, before one makes it again in the forums. Finally, the developers have the right to do any change they consider they should do in the game they develop, in any game. After all nothing is set to stone. Do you disagree? My reply was pointing out the change of the meta game regarding shields. This clarification is for those , like you , failing to comprehend this.
