Its popularity was so low, as well as win rate and kda, there were much better subclasses in the game and some of them are still untouched It was a tree focused only on its super and now the super isn't even worth, revert the changes or buff the neutral game This has been said even before the nerfs but ofc it got ignored The speed's "Controversial change" killed the super even more and bungie totally knew it, that's ridicolous
What pisses me off the most is how hunters got buffed on both top tree and bottom tree, bottom tree dawn gets nerfed so players would use top tree more but hunters get buffed on both top and bottom because why not? I love my hunter but man warlocks truly have it bad, I actually have options when I play hunter but I always feel so limited and frustrated when playing warlock. As you said, bottom tree focuses on the super, it has 3 perks on the class thats only to buff the super. Neutral game is non existent, there is no synergy or buffs or any passives to make it stand out. Top tree is all about being in the air, middle tree is all about support but bottom tree? 3 perks meant for the super and bungie removes the one thing needed for the player to take advantage of one of the perks on that subclass. A class meant for its super and not even its neutral game have anything to boost super regeneration, not even something like ability kills grant super energy, Nothing!
