Frankly it looks like the Devs have painted themselves into a corner, they will not admit they were wrong and buff class weapons and the cannot nerf non-class weapons for fear of the backlash as they are on very thin ice as it is now (evidently a new map and sparkly lights on the old ones didn't bail you out of the s**t, who would have known)
They may keep saying that there is nothing worng with the game and that 01/12 was a good game balance and that 20/12 was right to steal from customers and loose their trust - but judging by the frantic scrambling going on here in the last few weeks I'm guessing the very secret numbers we are not allowed to know about are saying something very diiferent
+3. A Training point sale, immediately followed by a massive booster firesale AND a huge change to their selling style for attachments? Thats bad.
In financial terms its obvious theyre desperately behind their investment plan and have sat down to decide how to reclaim some of the respect theyve lost in the eyes of rank and file players. This in itself is an admission they got it wrong but while perm attachments is a step forward, I dont think its enough for a lot of players that still feel €asy pickpocketed them dishonestly on the 20th.
Remember shot power means nothing if you cant get your shots on target and anyone that can read the stats will know things like base recoil has been completely ruined, 2400% in some worst cases with figures like 850% on an average recoil assesment on top tier guns such as the XM8AR.
If the devs right now made some kind of SIGNIFICANT gesture towards damping down the recoil then perhaps we might all be able to move on from the disgraceful actions of the 20th (meaning FREE enhanced stocks for +3 weapons, and no weak arsed assists or theres no point). These stocks should also be available to buy for non +3 weapons.
This would allow €asy to still sell us barrels and ammo and new stocks later down the line, also introduce the new players to the enhanced stocks for money.
If they do not make the community feel good about their +3 guns now in some way, this undercurrent of hate is going to continue as the game diverges down this new path and the chance to regain the lead with the Legacy community will be lost.
It can be pulled back (€asy, cain, chris whoever is reading) but it needs to be now
Its up to you to put our voice over at your RoE meetings, it wont feel good putting your cap in your hand, losing a bit of face and admitting it was a wrong move to nerf things so much, but if you act now with a SIGNIFICANT gesture towards us then maybe, just maybe we can put this sad event to rest.
if not, youll forever be having the skeleton of the 20th dragged out by legacy owners when you least expect or want it.
