I do not think the game has huge imbalances, but do think that if the small imbalances that currently exist now are not fixed prior to WA, that the whole balancing attempt of WA will be skewed on a poor base.
The following 4 items alone NEED to be changed. All the other balance complaints are small/debatable in comparision to these fairly commonly accepted issues. If these can change, DoW will see a vastly more balanced playing field.

Big changes and long lists are bad. They will only open up new problems (eg, 1.3 fixed 1.2 problems and made new ones).
Again, small changes....toy with costs, times, and armor penetrations...nothing spectacular.
