I am TR and have lots of items, certs and whatever in my TR character. As a TR, I always felt the faction weapons underwhelming as I was losing nearly every single firefight when fighting face to face even when I have pretty good aim. The only weapons that I had great success killing other players are NS Yumi, NS Pistols, Arbalest and Dragoon. By great success I mean 10 kills for every death (ON AVERAGE). I decided to try other factions weapons after 7 years of playing the game. Actually Arbalest I feel is the only top tier weapon for TR as it melts enemies. I felt Dragoon inferior to NC's Bishop as Bishop kills footmen with 2 shots to the chest while Dragoon kills with 3 despite having the same 334 damage at all ranges. I tried VS weapons and they feel awesome in terms of precision. You could put a bullet in the middle of a coin from a mile away. NC's though felt superior as it kills with less shots - because I rarely miss. Then I moved to NC. Now I am doing over 20 kills for every death (ON AVERAGE, I was able to do over 30 many times). It's a huge increase from the best TR guns. With a crappy Light Assault, without any armor/damage reduction/implants, I started winning over 90% of the face to face fights. Actually I started winning at all ranges, even outsniping Infiltrators with my 200-143 damage AC-X11 carbine. OMG it's so different and easy to headshot with this weapon. Feels like changing from a third world country to a first world country. This carbine simply destroys in a couple of shots. I started taking out Maxes, which I could only do with 700 damage sniper rifle or C4 before when I played for TR. Ok, so I went from TR to NC, weapons are better. Planetside is pretty much a respawn race. The faster you can respawn and the closer you are to objective, you win. NC players simply ignore enemy Sunderers in their faces. Am I missing something here? Is there a policy to let enemies respawn to farm them ignoring the risks of being overwhelmed? And also, NC players dont mind playing cat and mouse (which I find pretty exhausting). What I mean is, they never use the Recon Detection Device. So NC's keep running after Cloakers, they lose sight, cloakers kill them, NC respawn, run after cloakers, lose sight, cloakers kill them. Jeeezus! Who the hell does that? If you keep doing the same thing over and over the result is going to be the same! Is there a policy of not using the Recon Detection Device to let the enemy escape so they can farm us? Dude I swear I would use it if I had the certs for it but since I'm a new character my priority is getting the best guns in NC faction (next is Vanquisher). Really as a faction, TR despite having the worse guns they have a much better play.
