DivisionByZero Posted November 13, 2014 Share Posted November 13, 2014 Simple solution that would have taken minimal time/effort and cause minimal problems: Change Viver to a survival/defense/excavation mission or something. This could even be a temporary change until Viver can be properly reworked as an interception. That way, there would be no more Viver farming, and everyone else is happy. But instead, DE had to go and nerf around the problem. Instead of changing/nerfing Viver, update 15.2 nerfs everything around Viver while ignoring the actual mission. ------------------- "Excalibur's Radial Javelin and Mag's Shield Polarize no longer ignore line of sight". -> This is seriously bad balancing. Shield Polarize is incredibly situational - unimpressive most of the time and imbalanced otherwise. This is because Corpus and Void are the only factions that regularly use shields. The Radial Javelin nerf sets an even worse precedent - it's supposed to be an ultimate ability. Most ultimate abilities should ignore line of sight, after the nerf there's no reason to use Excalibur anymore. Radial Blind? LOS-blocked. Radial Javelin? LOS-blocked. Super Jump? Just get Zephyr instead. Slash Dash? Get Rhino instead. "Trinity's Energy Vampire now only affects allies within line of sight of its target" -> This is completely uncalled for. Just because Energy Vampire was overused in one mission means that the entire ability gets nerfed into the trash bin? Trinity is already weak after her ultimate ability was nerfed several updates earlier. Limbo nerfs: -> Way to effectively throw the newest frame out of the game. Might as well remove Limbo altogether as it isn't useful for anything except trolling. Interception mission nerfs: -> So just because of Viver, no more Interception missions can be soloed? Enemies start with every point? This means that the old tactic of capturing points ahead of a group of enemies wouldn't even work properly anymore. There is no valid reason to "nerf around the problem". Just nerf Viver, change it to a different mission type, and be done with it. ------------------- I'm not even looking forward to future balance changes after this entire disaster because they will probably wreck the game even further. I call for everyone to stop requesting nerfs from now on. Stop asking for Boltor Prime nerfs. If the Boltor Prime ever gets nerfed, it will probably look something like: -Rifles: maximum ammo decreased to 100. -Serration: damage per rank decreased to 8% per rank. -Rifle elemental damage upgrades: decreased to 5% per rank to keep them in line with slash/puncture/impact upgrades. I also call for an explanation with a very good reason of why these nerfs shouldn't be immediately reverted and Viver changed to a different mission type as a temporary solution.
