English term or phrase: combat nerfs
One huge concern is that no one wants PvP balance to ever impact PvE balance. There will not be PvE "combat nerfs" because of PvP.

Any idea what combat nerfs or nerfs are in the MMOG context?

TIA

Explanation:
Nerfs are items in the game that decrease abilities; combat nerfs are specific to decreasing combat abilities. Very hard to translate since many gamers commonly use English as their language of communication. I hope this helps!
