Huh, am I the only one that is actually OK with this update ?
When I tried this customization thing in PTE, I was happy to see that finally weapons were getting more "realistic" (you know, recoil and stuff ...).
But, when it came to the game, we got these "Legacy" parts that was clearly OP compared to what new players could get ...
I said it many times, that we should only have some advantages compared to brand new weapons (we paid for them !!), but not being total OP because of Legacy parts !!!
I feel terrible when smashing newcomers (or Veteran guys that used to rent their weapons) and getting outrageous scores ... It's not only about the skills, really !
I get more than 40 kills almost every rounds !!! o_O 60/5 or so is quite regular for me now
Some of you may have seen my videos about nerfed weapons on YouTube (or go see them
), I'm not a sadomasochist to do this, it's just that it's not RIGHT to use Legacy parts when it makes me so OP.
Base weapons are NOT that bad ! I'm far from being a "pro" and yet I rule the game using them.
Someone that is doing bad qscore with base weapon will not be any good with Elite !!!
Yet, those that paid for Elite, Veteran or whatever will get advantages.
I hope this "+3" thing is good enough and that we still got some advantages using them.
It's really for balance ! Everyone will get the same treatment.
Now, everyone will have to follow their roles, instead of being able to wear full-auto sniper rifles without bulletdrop.
I paid big money for this game, about 120€, I'm ok with this. It's better than paying for 2 next-gen games that would last a week or so ... I'm here since January 2011 !
I'm still furious about EAsy's work and how they manage this game, which is full of bug with a terribly obvious lack of comunication with the community !!!
Still can't play on HIGH setting without crashing to desktop within 2 minutes, being forced to play in LOW, various freeze/bug/lag after more than ONE round on the same server and so on ...... (My computer runs BF3 on HIGH, Skyrim at max)
A lot of these Legacy parts were a terrible mess anyway ! (kind of a noob's work)
I wrote all of their mistakes in my thread about addons, look at my sig
We don't know yet what will happen tomorrow, we may see some improvments on base weapons or something ... (fair prices on addons ?
They should put back the post-update prices on weapons (mostly 420BF) as they were nice and fair (829BF is NOT !!!)
Default weapons have been buffed up on december 1st, making them very close to base weapons, damage is now their only weakness !
No one will get refund, that's for sure !
I know I'm getting flamed down for writing this, I don't care, it's just my opinion.
PS: I laughed so hard when reading "I paid 90k for my Scar and it's gonna be nerfed !!!!" or so ... funny, really funny !
