Classic condescending comment which contributes absolutely nothing constructive to the conversation.The "I don't like it, so it's OP and should be removed" arguments.
I even suggested alternatives to balance out the shield troops in more enjoyable and realistic ways than divine planks of wood with the power to negate physics. I like to play this style of fighting alongside others, and it can get pretty boring as the shield keeps you alive a lot longer than it should and the attacks are too clumsy to be used effectively in a close-quarter shieldwalls.
Besides, enjoyment of the mechanics is still an important feature (this is a videogame after all). A game balanced in a fun and semi-realistic manner is so much better than a game balanced in a bland and irritating way. If you're so adverse to change, why on earth are you playing an early-access game?
