I don't know that they buffed Melee too far. I play Orks. The ability for a unit of Ork Boyz with a powerclaw nob to kill a Rhino in close combat has been reduced, and to Kill a dread or imperial Knight it has been reduced much more dramatically. Same for other monsters like Riptides or Wraith Knights. I should have an easier time getting there, but once I'm there I'll have a rougher time killing it.
Same goes for my Genestealers. Much easier time to get to close combat. Much harder time killing big stuff once they get there.
