They should've adjusted the plat medal rate rather than delaying patch. People are already starting to get bored of 2.5 as it feels more or less the same as 2.0.
To put this in concrete terms: I started to collect platinum medals from the day, when the daily quests in Inggisson gave 1 platinum for 7 completed dailys, long before patch 2.5. With the last patch I started to collect platinum medals and AP for a brandnew AP weapon. Today I still lack of around 20 of the 163 medals for the weapon, but in the same time I gathered enough AP for the weapon + 2 small gear parts, means over all (from the AP point of view) I am 130 platinum medals behind the AP I have. To show you numbers.
