This is a begging thread out of my final desperation. Within, I'll ask for a buff to disfunctional TR weapons. If you are not interested, the x is in the upper right corner. There've been some sparce requests to buff some NC weapons, several more to buff VS weapons (just think about any, non-Orion VS LMG, or just the Spiker), and even significantly more to buff TR weapons. If it's this persistent, there's ought to be something behind it, right? Each time TR asks for a buff regarding their weaponry what's the response? "you do not fall too far behind on alerts", "[link to statistics]", "you have the Vulcan". And those responses are completely right. From where does this contradiction come from, then? The answer is clean and simple - we put up a good fight using common pool weapons: copy-paste launchers, copy-paste sniper rifles, copy-paste shotguns, almost copy-paste anything (don't even mention NS), that isn't an ES thing. And we just arrived to the root of the problem: Our infantry based Empire Specific weapons are worthless garbage. Junk. Useless. Worthless. Pathetic and miserable. They are a pain in our @$$. They are not cool to use, they are not anything my opponents would be jealous of. People send me a f*cking "lol" when I fire at them with my Striker. Strictly excluded from this category is the glorious and magnificent minigun, that is mostly overlooked, but sounds awesome, looks awesome, and is useful. I tried hard to love the TRAP. I auraxiumed it. NEVER AGAIN. I tried shining the glory of the TR with the Striker: "hey peasants, look at this fine TR dakka". NEVER EVER FRIGGIN' AGAIN. The situation is so dire in my opinion, that I pretend my long-range ESAV weapon is the M9 SKEP Launcher, and my ES sniper rifle is the Bighorn. I beg a SOE developer to have a look here and do something, because I consider myself to be among the most devoted to my faction, and I consider leaving it for good. People are actually leaving TR, although it is yet to be significant. They are not leaving because we don't have functional weapons, they are leaving because our weapons are not as unique as that of the others. If that's not possible, would someone who agrees with me forward this to Reddit, or whereever they are hiding? This is not a thread to ask for ES weapons that outperform others'. This is a thread to ask for functional ES weapons. If you don't agree this should be done, please tell me why. In a reply I'll soon state what I'd consider to give us something special and useful.
