With the new patch my favorite toy has effectively been nerfed twice. It no longer drains all ability charge, which was a huge selling point, and one of the new implants (Carapace) potentially renders it totally useless, especially vs Heavies. I know these implants are rare drops, but over time more and more people will get them, meaning that the EMP grenade will become more and more unreliable / useless. All it does against people with Carapace is mildly distorting their vision. It's still useful for destroying deployables and mines, and maybe draining the shield AND the ability charge was OP. But i'm dreading a future where i EMP a room before storming in only to be greeted by a fully functional Heavy with full health and a full NMG shield up. I hope the devs will find a way to keep it useful in combat without being overpowered.
