I do not post much let alone do threads but this update is nothing short of ridiculous and it dose not address the issues or the main concerns for players but has now changed the dynamics of the game without even a certs refund.. ( yes we know what im talking about ) but i will come onto that later. Claymores.. So "reduces the effectiveness (and frustration) caused by claymores placed where they cannot be countered or avoided." So lets analyses this. Cannot be countered.. Well isn't their grenades that CAN counter this? or a implant EOD HU or Flack? Ah, but you say, they are hidden around a corner, well as they only work at 180c you are limited to what you can do with them, ie you are not going to place them in the middle of a room but also as they stand up your just not going to miss them? But but but, they are instant kills, No. Unless they are positioned correctly, and even a flack will save your ****. But but but, the stats PROVE its better, so it must be OP. Its a small amount but indeed they are, so again lets look at something else. Betelgeuse. As Wrel put it, the best farming LMG in the game. The stats on this are so far above anything else its just comical to see. It has unlimited ammo, just look as the camping and farming options you now have with this that cannot be countered.. its a killing machine, just left untouched, but hey the little claymore is a game breaker compared to the Betelgueuse? Lets look at something even better, dont forget the Devs logic... "cannot be countered or avoided." Ravens and Phoenix. Tell me how i counter any of these behind a mountain or in a spawn room, you cant. Certain bases when approaching with transport are near impossible due to the spam of these but hey those pesky claymores are a game killer compared to these.. really?? Thermals. Has anyone in the game gone, oh no its a tank with thermals run.. no. Its an advantage but its open to all factions to use. " The intention behind these changes is to increase the skill required to hunt down infantry (especially while using natural cover, like tree canopies or underbrush,) while increasing the optic’s ability to detect vehicle-based threats." So what your saying is its no different to any other barrel site now, so its not a thermal which everyone has brought via certs. So their is no reason not to give the certs back, its now not a thermal, its has no use to what it was before. I could go on, but there are so many other irregularities and issues that need to be addressed for balance you chose the claymore.. DBG, you wonder why people just dont pay for this game. GK.. now nerfed to ****e. The striker, well we all remember the video with the NC laughing so much that a pistol had more stopping power than a launcher. Constant nerfs but the Betelgueuse never gets touched ever, the best gun in the game second to only the SVA another VS gun or the Parsec, oh another VS gun or the Solstice Burst, oh another VS gun or Eclipse VE3A another VS gun... all top of the stats but those dam pesky claymores eh? LOGIC?
