I’ve been playing since around the time game launched, so listen up.
The current state of the game after the patch is shit.
Shields are worthless now. Weapons CONSTANTLY clip THROUGH them. I know some mod here said that doesn’t happen, but it does, a lot. Everyone says so, so open your ears and listen to the community. THE COMMUNITY PLAYS THE GAME MORE THAN YOU, SO LISTEN UP!
MAA were fine until the patch, now, they are kind of worthless.
Vanguards have been OP since launch, not a huge issue, as EVERY new player picks one and you can usually cut them down np. However, there are a growing number of players, I would say intermediate players at best, who simply dominate because of the OP nature of vanguards. They can run into a 3-4 person fight and cut EVERYONE down in one stroke.
I won’t comment on the rest of the classes or problems, but they exist.
What I wanted to say, is that your ALMOST had a really good game. I played Age of Chivalry, and while this is a good deal better, it still needs a lot of work to be playable. Maybe devs need to get into games with the actual players so they can see the state of things.
