    *facepalm* You can't prevent every hit with CC. CC is not damage reduction. You will be the Mag that ruins someone's Interception, I'm sure of it.

    Thanks for the riven change that no one wanted :)

    Yes, it would be "just stupid" at that point. I was just saying why it's not too favorable in my opinion. On the flip side, it's regained a bit of favor for Arbitrations because it's one of the most convenient weapons I've found for taking out an invulnerability drone with minimal thought or aiming, and it makes its way through a clutter of invincible bodies blocking the way pretty nicely. But, frankly, if not for this aspect, I'd probably have it on zero of my loadouts. When it comes to "rooms of enemies," I prefer a melee weapon, or an Amprex for ranged. Off-topic, but hey.

    No, man... No... Your ass gets saved, that's it. If you wanna be all, "you shoulda saved me sooner and more often," then that's on you...

    Can you approve of something but not like it??? Can you LIKE something but not APPROVE of it??? Within the context of a forum post. Not, like... "I like murdering babies... But I don't approve of it."

    How did you completely miss the point of my post?... You even said those items were buffed... How did you not even catch that YOU YOURSELF answered your own question? "No one uses it any more." Exactly. That's why Tigris went up 1 Dispo. Tigris wasn't buffed. Its stats are exactly the same. But less people are using it. Because it is less useful in many parts of the game. People have realized that you don't need to overkill a target by 40,000% of its maximum health. People have realized they want weapons that handle a bigger array of situations they may encounter in the game. Tigris was neither buffed nor nerfed. Its Disposition was updated to reflect that less people are using it. And as such, its Rivens became very slightly more potent. Because that's what the Riven system does. It gives more strength to weapons used less often so that they become more desirable than they once were. Tigris, being Dispo 2, is still pretty desirable. And so, its Rivens - although stronger than previously - will be strong enough to make it more comparable to a weapon of Dispo 1 if you have a good Tigris Riven, but not the absolute best choice. In the grand scheme, that's what Rivens are trying to do. Use the data regarding weapon strength & popularity to create Rivens with varying strength in order to even out the playing field. In order to do this, it must be constantly updated. ... Did ANYTHING I say not make sense to you? I can elaborate further if necessary.

    BOOM. There it is. The truth, folks. -But not in the way this poster thinks. "Disposition nerfs"????????????? Did you REALLY, REALLY just say that????????????? It's a Disposition UPDATE. That's the WHOLE POINT of Dispositions. They are SUPPOSED to be REGULARLY updated. Whether a Dispo goes up, down, or stays the same, it is neither a nerf nor a buff. The fact that you just called it "Disposition nerfs" is EXACTLY the point here. People like you have a TOTAL DISCONNECT with what the system is supposed to be doing. /f***ing thread

    Fixing the "riven" problem

    Your logic is broken. Let's give the hard example. You're being mugged in a back alley. In fact, you DID get mugged. But this guy's crazy. Robbing you of your belongings isn't enough. He's going to kill you. SUDDENLY, the Batmobile - the likes of which having not been seen for 15 years; Batman being presumed dead; NOBODY EVER relying or counting on him showing up ever again - SMASHES through several dumpsters as it ROARS its way to you and the robber. Batman LUNGES OUT from the convertible roof, tackles the shocked criminal in the same blurred movement, lets loose several thundering forearms into various critical points of the guy's body, and within a couple swift & unseen movements, all you know is that he finally pulls on a rope and the criminal is sent flying upward from some mechanism, tied up, and left dangling about 20 feet from the ground. Without looking at you, he casually tosses you your wallet and you barely catch it as it hits your chest. "You dropped this." He begins to swiftly stride back to his vehicle. ... ... ... QUICK! Do you tell him he's useless because you couldn't rely on him for the past 15 years?!?

    Fixing the "riven" problem

    I am very much an advocate that complaining is how productivity happens. But that's when that's the specific intention. People complaining about a Disposition update are, quite strictly, salty that they spent plat on a Riven that lowered in strength. That's it. Period. I don't like dismissiveness, but show me the contrary is true. I could think of options towards my opinion of fixing Dispositions, sure. But frankly, the current system is fine if it's frequently updated (no less frequently than once every 3 months). When designing SO MANY guns, consider what a company has to do. A gun has to be unique AND good. No weapon should ever be created as the "jobber" item. Everything should be created as an option for someone who may prefer that assortment of fire rate, fire sounds, appearance, crit stats, status stats, damage element types, reload speeds, etc etc etc etc ETC. There's a million combinations. SURELY, some things are going to be stronger than others. DE already tried to balance things on their initial creation. After that, WE are ALL the testers. The community, formed up of FAR MORE PEOPLE than those in the DE office, will inform DE of what guns are stronger than others, what's favored in the context of the game, and all sorts of things like that. That's what Disposition is for. It is the balance test results. But there are various reasons as to why those results might alter over time. Maybe new content comes out where one gun shines above all others. You can't have old Disposition results stick in this scenario. Or, perhaps a gun is "super popular" because it's the MK1 Braton and every newbie has one. Eventually, people will stop using that hot garbage as it's replaced by literally anything. And thus, this is another case where Dispos need to be updated. The list of scenarios goes on and on. And that's why Rivens for a gun with higher Dispositions acquire higher amounts of stats. To serve as a system that manually, and constantly, rebalances weaker guns to be up to par with the stronger guns. With frequently-updated Dispositions, it would remain consistent that the actual WEAKEST guns gain access to the strongest Rivens. And that is the true essence of Rivens. So, in a case like this, no. I actually do not have a "suggestion" to put forth myself. Because I think the current system - providing you want a system at all that attempts to function for this purpose - is a pretty good design. It simply was not being enforced. That being said, there are an infinite amount of ways to design a video game. And so, of course, there exists MANY great suggestions for improvement. So anyone who wants to present one of their own, go ahead. But this thread??? This thread is just people saying that they are upset "Dispos changed without warning". Very plainly. Very simply. That.
