I feel like these changes are for the better Depending how much they drop the stats for the assault rifle I felt like it was fine in the beta, I think that Bungie and 343 have a bad habit of making the AR terrible even though it is supposed to be the best in short distances, But they keep changing it so that BR always wins and that should not be, it should be the BR is the Best in mid range fights and the DMR is the best long range weapon. So i just hope they make all of the weapons the best at Their Respective distances.
