I am curious where the community stands. Please respond "A" for supporting the ttk change, "B" for don't do it. Answer "c" for unsure.
I have some concerns with this, so I answer "B".
1.)Fights decided by rof?-
Remember Battlefront 2(EA)? That ttk was way too slow. Gub fights came down to rof, not skill. That cannot happen.
Having reaction time is good, but I feel that there is a decent reaction time right now. A little slower(.5 seconds) would be ok...but not ideal. I deal would be .5 seconds faster.3.)You didn't ask us- Can we please have a poll before you make drastic changes like this? To my knowledge, no one wanted this.
4.)The meta is getting good. Don't kill it, just tweak it-
Also, why are you nerfing everyone but the snipers? (good call on bolt action medic guns though
) Also, what are you doing to mag sizes? 20 round mags are dropping from a guaranteed 2 kills/mag to 1, maybe 2 with headshots. I could land 3-4 before, so large mag sizes or quick reloads could become a new, op meta...further buffing 250 round mmgs.
While their ttk will be slightly lower, assault rifles, lmgs, smgs, etc, will be affected more. The mg 42 can get a rof of 1,200. This will barely make a dent.
Lower rof guns, made for skill and accuracy, like the Bren gun(514 rof), will have very slow ttks, to the point where there will have to be no cover whatsoever if you hope to score a kill. The Madsen will be toast, it will not deal nearly enough damage.
I think you just inadvertently buffed tanks, as I assume their mmg is not affected.
-Roll out private servers first, so the community can change the settings if we don't like it, rather than stop playing for a month.
This is just honest feedback. I am glad the devs are being bold and making meaningful changes. I just want to give input on whether or not those changes are necessarily the best possible changes.
Devs, not sure if these reasons help at all. I only play the game, I don't know how to make it.
Edit: I realize that there is a megathread, but this is intended as a poll, and a summary of why you answered how you did. Discussions in the megathread, please.
Mods, if this breaks any rules, I am sorry. I think it is different enough to warrant its own thread.
