This is the main reason I don't like the shotgun. If any of you played the game back when it launched...back before people bought the shotguns, you could tell the TTK in close quarter fights was actually reasonable. People actually had time to react, and the guns fights at close quarters were just more skillful, because nobody died with like 2 shots in .3 seconds(Unless u faced a scatmax)....this led to skill actually mattering in close quarter since you could actually react. Now however, everybody has shotguns....Rarely is their fun close quarter battles where you can make a comback if you get caught since shotguns kills so fast. In beta, it was even more skillful since I remember they always reset certs so rarely did people have shotguns(Hell I think for a while you couldn't get them). So yes....This is a big reason why the game isn't fun in close quarters anymore and why it doesn't require as much skill as it once did. I miss the days where a man could get shot but make a comeback.......It was just fun/skillful. So IMO SOE needs to raise TTK somewhat....So people can actually react and so skill will matter in close quarter fights. This will make the game funner/raise the skill cap.... It just adds depth to CQC when you can actually react instead of your dead ASAP because shotgun shot you.
