Last time I played was summer last year I think, which is two-and-a-half years after release! I'm assuming those changes would have been in place then! I really love the concept and I totally understand why it is how it is - I just really don't find it fun, shooting something for so long. It doesn't have to be super-realistic when it's an RPG but from a fun standpoint, it's just a bit boring for me! But I don't really have any answers to it - if they were dead in a couple of shots, there'd be no difference between one "boss" and the next.
