It is not correct to pull statistics like "99% do not know how to use the Aphelion correctly" out of your rear end. Accordingly, we can discount these baseless accusations on your faction's side. Also even if that were actually true, it is still completely representative of what the weapon currently is and achieves. Also if 80% of the players don't know how to use the Saron, you are actually saying it's even more powerful than currently if used properly? https://voidwell.com/ps2/oracle?sta...02899&startDate=2018-02-20&endDate=2019-02-19 https://voidwell.com/ps2/oracle?sta...02899&startDate=2018-07-14&endDate=2018-10-17 https://voidwell.com/ps2/oracle?sta...02899&startDate=2018-07-14&endDate=2018-10-17 It's not exactly a statement that says "oh noes the VS aren't OP because they don't know how to use it properly". It also goes right against the age-old excuse of "oh no the VS are just more skilled than everyone else you see" that is used so often when it's proven that the VS score magically better at something even though the weapon is according to them worse than it's counterparts. Also you are completely right: Easy to handle influences the statistics. If a common weapon for the VS is easier to handle and the general playerbase will have trouble using higher difficulty weapons, than easy to handle simply is superior. It might not be the best of the best in the hands of the absolute top players, but the point is that 95% of the players aren't the absolute top. That's one of my arguments and thanks for unwittingly backing that one up!
