Volt speed nerf

Recommended Posts

Volt now is considerably slower, and he takes longer to reach max speed, people keep saying is because the animation change and he "feels" slower, but his speed should be the same.

That dont seem to be the case:

I had to dig up some footage of him pre-nerf since i dont have any, i manage to find a brozime video where he has a good straight line run, i duplicated his build and tested it for myself, i enter the room at max speed like he does in his video, the timer starts when volt goes past the light bulb thing on the left (0:02) and stops when he touches the door.

... Are you absolutely sure you replicated the build?

 

Edit: Doesn't feel like it.

Yes, i even used a lvl 3 power drift to compensate for my lack of arcane helmet (it gives 10% power str) yeah, it doesn't feel like it, thats how much slower he is. and the animation changes make him feel even slower, it would be ok if was only the "feeling" of him being slower, but like my video shows, he is actually slower.

As a matter of fact, i went there later with an improved build (https://i.gyazo.com/34fbff2688c5bb3cd63761d8d8fb73e6.jpg), and only with that much more power str i could catch up to brozime´s volt.

Here is brozime´s video in question btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pihHgvTvic

If he had an arcane helmet, then that's the difference you felt. After all, you improved the build to catch up to his Volt... And you don't have the Arcane Helmet, so~... What if it was bugged before and fixed now?

All the arcane helmet does is give volt 10% power str, thats it, and i compensated for that with a lvl 3 power drift (also gives 10% power str), arcane helmet does nothing else, it doesn't give him speed or anything besides the 10% power str. My build and his are exactly the same, 309% power str, 1.45 sprint speed thats all the matters, and yet, im much slower.

The improved build is my up to date most speed you can get build, it has 30% more power str and speed drift that he lacks, i tested it just for the "screw it lets see how it does" it should be faster than his, and yet it was toe to toe, if i need more power str and sprint speed to catch up, thats a clear indication that he got nerfed. If it was "bugged before" than this is the longest bug in warframe history, that coincidentally got "fixed" when gauss was released, and if it indeed was a bug and got fixed, it would have been mentioned in patch nodes, nothing was said about it, clear that is either a bug now, or a stealth nerf.

Well, it was as much of a bug as Master Thief, which started at 90%... and it was fixed after Kubrows got released... and fixed even further when Kavats were released, so we have a Master Thief that has 40% chance of opening lockers, which forces us to be tied to an AI stupid than a blind dog and more stubborn than a bull.

 

... Volt was probably fixed the same way. And the next Warframe that gets released and is faster than Gauss, I assure you that both Volt and Gauss will get fixed the same way Master Thief was.
