    Honestly, these changes look fantastic across the board. I am especially happy about the item balancing, except for one case:

    In my opinion, increasing the base damage while holding items to 4% is a mistake. The way I understood it was that the reduction in damage output served to balance out some of the more powerful items (Looking at you, Grapple and Jetpack), and preventing those from being held on for the entire match. In fact, I'm quite surprised that these "inconsistencies" were apparently unintentional and considered in need of fixing. As it is, there is virtually no downside to holding on to a Jetpack until it is used up, leading to drawn out, significantly less exciting games.

    To conclude, I believe that this particular change should be reversed, at least for certain items.
