Um maybe the mod is balanced more than ever however this statement is just not true
. The stats don't lie there are still many classes which are not pushing into the level 140 range and have a very small distribution of players.
Druid and Barbarian has been suffering overall and at the same time has very small amount of representation in the level 140-150 range meaning they are stuck unable to level effectively past duncraig/teganze.
There are also a few classes which never get into the 145+ level range meaning that they simply are not Lab-friendly. While it might be doable
no one wants to play a necromancer in T13-T15 rifts as it is simply not safe nor efficient.
You can also infer a lot of other issues like the amount of Paladins on the ladder and in the 140-150 range meaning it's the most player-friendly character. This is pretty obvious if you simply looked at the Paladin spec.
On the other hand just based on observation I'm going to assume somewhere between 50-80% of Assassin players are playing ATMG sentry. I believe that they should bring back the build statistics for the seasons as they give a more detailed look into the state of balance than overall player counts ever could. I'm not sure whether they stopped because they didn't want to update the code or because the stats were too skewed.
