Lock them down! Shredder & Pulsar Reveal

by WR_Tofsla - 6.07.2018

An interesting weapon can be more than just a tool for causing destruction. Even if your end goal is to crush enemy pilots, your means for reaching this goal may be very different. And this is what we look to explore next.

You already have some hints on what this means for new robots: Mender and Weyland hit the live server recently and so far they're doing great. But what about weapons?

Remember Ancile and ECU. These two aren't even weapons — one is an energy barrier, another is a physical shield, and both make you safer, not stronger. But taking the same slots as other equipment, they pose a clear question: are you going to sacrifice some of your firepower for a better defence? Do you want to live longer or fight harder?

In this article, we will talk about 2 upcoming weapons that bring a similar strategic dilemma. Their focus is utility, not deadliness, and this is what makes them stand apart.

Shredder (light)

Shredder is an auto-cannon with a wide spread. It shoots in short bursts, which makes it best for robot “knife fights” at extremely close range. Also, unlike other automatic weapons, Shredder deals energy damage, bypassing all energy barriers.

Shredder concept art

Pulsar (medium)

Pulsar is on the opposite end of the spectrum to Shredder. You might call it “energy Molot”, if you'd like: it has longer range, reliable spread and works great for suppressing enemies from safer distances.

But what actually makes Shredder and Pulsar special?

Every bullet you shoot has a certain chance to immobilize (or Lock-down) a target for a few seconds.

What does it mean?

First, we address the elephant in the room: yes, this is a great way to counter agile enemies! Haechis and Spectres are first coming to the mind — now you have a proper tool to lock them down, making their mobility a much less intimidating factor.

If we talk about specific uses, Shredder is an amazing choice for hit and run tactics. Put three of these on Pursuer, shoot away — and most likely you will disable at least one enemy to get some time to hide, regroup, reload and then return to the fight.

Pulsar, on the other hand, is beastly when controlling the fight from afar. Pick the target, suppress it, and watch your teammates tearing apart. Possibilities these guns open for the teamplay are truly endless.

Why is the effect based on chance?

If we make strong status effects like immobilization work in 100% of cases, we can be sure that EVERY match will start with everybody using it as an engagement tool. In a coordinated team, this will be the most efficient way to open the fight: pick a target, lock it down, dismantle it together from afar, done.

We don't want every fight to start the same way. By making status effects chance-based, we drive force pilots to react instead of duly executing pre-memorized strategies.

War Robots is a game of large numbers, with tons of little things that can happen during one even robot-on-robot fight: many bullet hits, many maneuvers, many engages, disengages, sudden interferences from other pilots and so on. We tune chances to ensure that your gun's special effect will trigger somewhere in between these events in some amazingly satisfying way... but to truly capitalize on it you have to pay attention. That's where teamwork and coordination also enter the ring.

Is there a point in having more than 1 Shredder or Pulsar?

More guns = more bullets, meaning more chances. Adding new Shredders or Pulsar to your build proportionally increases the probability of root going through.

In the ideal situation, three level 8 Shredders or Pulsars should give you a guaranteed effect somewhere before you have to reload.

Pulsar concept art

What makes these guns fair to play against?

First and foremost, we make sure that you won’t get disabled every 5 seconds — root-chains are just not fun to oppose, let’s put it straight. You shouldn't get hit by the same effect too often and always have a chance to retaliate, so every time you get locked down, you become immune to the same effect for about 8-10 seconds. We may retune these numbers later if there’s a need, but this is the core idea.

Also remember, that Shredder and Pulsar are not that strong in the damage department. It is a tradeoff that pilots have to take for the valuable utility it gives.

What will change as you upgrade Shredder/Pulsar?

Upgrading Shredder and Pulsar increases not just their damage, but also your chance of disabling the enemy. Effect’s duration remains the same.

***

Both Shredder and Pulsar are up for extensive testing on the test server. Feel free to join it this weekend and leave your feedback!

Tmoneyshot , yes, i start play battle of titans..fun game, and great game for first launching in playstore.. i think battle of titans in 1-2 years can better than war robot.. very stupid pixonic,, can make customer(player) happy (bullshit economy change etc)->> destroy this game..

I just play Battle Titans. Way better game, fair and balanced, requires strategy and thinking and it has iOS and Android merged. US release is very soon, or you can change your region to Russia and download it now.
Best...game...ever. I love it.

Why because the game mode is king of the hill or team death match does every map have to have barriers. Basically making every map of brawling map. But what’s worse is it makes a perfect place for the guys ,cowards. With the zenits, The hydras and zeus carnage. And the specter stealth bot a place to hide .Look at the moon map does it need to have barriers no It’s a small map.Rome is just what six weeks old. And of course we go to team death match they’ve got to have barriers. I think to you developers if you read this at all which I’m sure you don’t care. That the maps without all those barriers that maybe team death match would be enjoyable. And not a burden. And now we got some new weapons out that root you,Root you,root you ? dude what are you talking about. Well really they should’ve named it target dummy . You mean like you bent over and grab your ankles and get Rooted is that what you’re talking about. No Stupid I don’t get down like that you know that. What are you saying. I’m saying they got this new stupid weapon it locks you in place so everybody can shoot you and you’re helpless or you can shoot back but you can’t move. WOW. So now when the other team lock you down the guys that have to aim the shock trains manually now .Have a standing target. And they’ve got three other ones are coming out with the same affect awesome Hu. Yeah wall three updates to go my controls started freezing or sticking So I know what it’s like and it sucks. So you mean all those maps they the developers took all the time to design for long-range and some for short range now they’re all pretty much short range with hiding places. Ya hiding places for the cowards with Zenits,Zeus and Hydras!

TheRexYo, People who quit from this game has just made a very good decision. This game will no longer improve because pixonic is very focused on monetisation so please, uninstall the game and go find another. If you think upgrading your bots & weapons will improve you game, i say no. You see those "£0.99" and "£4.99" everyday that gives you 400-600 au, this makes you buy it everyday thinking you can use it to upgrade/ buy better bot but i dont think so. After a month, those microtransaction you made add up to maybe £100-£200 but its wasted cuz the matchmaking is still shit . Trust me, this game will waste your time when you think you can be better and you get enjoyment.

Dagowood1904, You only have less than 1 second when spectre-orkan attacks you so i stopped playing the game cuz it's pointless trying to win. I only have one Inquisitor and others are silver bots, my Inquisitor is still at level 4 yet I always get matched up with mk2 players even when my silver bots are too old.

soemguy2 months ago

9 out of 10 (probably) of my games have spectre.
It easily dominated the game and most players including me have 0 fight against it. This discouraged me to stop playing further more because it is pointless trying to win a game with skills only though I have one Inquisitor and other silver bots.
I have decent skills as I have been playing since the release of the game, yet I see players now especially spectre players hide forever till stealth jump is up. I dont see the point of putting patience towards these kinds of players because the game is only 10 minutes long. In this case these players are now moving up the ranks because of the simple strategy; hide, jump and shoot then hide and run with 55km/h.

The constant release of component bots & weapons made wallet warriors, though less skilled moves up to the ranks. I respect wallet warriors with their skills. I respect that the game is focused on making profits because I checked the pixonic website and it says it's focused on monetisation. There is a problem, I dont see veteran players getting valued. Theres is one thread or a comment section where a player says about old players getting left out and the the reply from pixonic is shocking. It is a two paragraph reply but to summarise it- theys say that paying (players) customers are more important than free players.

It's more than three years that i've been very attached to this game but im not a hardcore player to easily catch up with players with £300 bots(or more). Every player has something to do with their life aside gaming. War robots doesnt give back life-lasting benefits to a player for spending £1000, only a satisfaction to destroy a virtual robot. When this game dies out, most players will not even have long - lasting memory of how good this game is. Playing this game further with a broken matchmaking is pointless. Please, hear me out and uninstall the game. GO find a better game, the one you find enjoyable because YOU deserve it.

I took a break from the test server test and the two weapons which this is the third week. And you know as well as I do and a lot of other players that these two weapons with these abilities. The ability to freeze , Stop, or call it paralyzed, or immobilizes you would put it. Should not even be put in this game. In the article above. It says something to the effect. That a player won’t be immobilized every five seconds and that they will have a chance to retaliate. Let me tell you in most circumstances with level eight weapons. Five seconds is all that’s needed. Basically when you get hit by that weapon you become a target dummy. This is what you guys at Pixonic wrote . {{‘ What makes these guns fair to play against? First and foremost, we make sure that you won’t get disabled every 5 seconds — root-chains are just not fun to oppose, let’s put it straight. You shouldn't get hit by the same effect too often and always have a chance to retaliate, so every time you get locked down, you become immune to the same effect for about 8-10 seconds. We may retune these numbers later if there’s a need, but this is the core idea.’}}. So as it says you’ll get a chance to retaliate well there will be no retaliation want to get immobilized it’s over done dead Robot! Lets face it we don’t need these weapons to get immobilized.Because it happens every time we play with the weapons are already in the game. Sometimes you don’t have two seconds with them why would you wanna put it like this and they’re making even worse. You guys are making this game into Something it’s not fun and enjoyable anyways you shouldn’t put these weapons in this game but you’re probably going to do it already anyways that’s what it seems like I decide right this to you guys and hopefully maybe you’d put the weapons in without the special abilities. It’s an excellent game but it’s getting bad you guys have a good day

All games change over time and that is something we players adapt to. This change is to makeup for your mistake in allowing 3-4 medium Shocktrains to be mounted on a single robot. Instead of balancing those robots you introduce something new that is even more damaging to the game. Those who like nimble and quick robots will be at a disadvantage. It would have be better for these weapons to result in some sort of pushback on energy weapons and/or dash regeneration. This at least gives the players a choice/decision to make rather than making their robot useless.

If you were to increase the number of Shocktrain charges that generate quickly with the high DMG accumulation occurring at later intervals a pushback mechanism from these 2 weapons would slow down the DMG output. This could be applied to all energy weapons. Now apply the same pushback to the dash engine. Dashes recharge at a certain rate and when this weapon hits it slows down the regeneration rate.

I think the "lock down" will cause a lot of players to walk. Adding RND (random features) to the game is not something that makes a game better as it adds the perception of luck versus skill.

Dear Player

Yeah the imobilizer gun? Well about that... were making a module that makes robots imune to that effect so now every Dash/stealh jump and otherwise OP piece of shit will be imune to imoblization.

Have a nice day!

# YOU ARE REALLY GOING TO PUT THOSE TO WEAPONS INTO THIS GAME RIGHT. WELL LET ME TELL WHAT ITS LIKE FOR REAL AND NOT ON THE TEST SERVER. AND I'VE TESTED BOTH .BUT IN TEST ITS ALL LVL 8 RIGHT. I HAVE MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT AND 1 OF THE DEVICES ,THE 1 IM USING NOW ,HAS STICKY CONTROLS !SO IN BATTLE WITHOUT ANY NEW FANTASY WEAPONS LIKE THESE TWO.MY ROBOT WILL JUST STOP DEAD IN ITS TRACKS WHILE IN A FIRE FIGHT. AND YOU GOTTA START CYCLING THE JOY STICK.YOU HAVE TIME TO LOOK DOWN AT IT AND YOU CAN SEE ITS NOT MOVING. THE WHOLE TIME YOUR GETTING BLASTED BY SAY SIX PUNISHERS ON A GRIFFIN ,YOU GLANCE AT THE HEALTH METER AND ITS DROPPING FAST AND IT BREAKS FREE AND YOUR MOVING AND SHOOTING AGAIN,,,,YOUR MISSING ONE OF YOUR GUNS, BUT HAY ,,,,YOU TELL YOUR SELF,,,,NO PROBLEM, ,,,,JUST ONE GUN,,,,,AND THAN YOU STOP AGAIN! SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN.! AND IT SUCKS,AND ITS JUST LIKE THOSE 2 WEAPONS,BEEN HAPPING TO ME FOR OVER 4 MONTHS. ITS FUCKED UP.THOSE TWO WEAPONS WITHOUT THE ROOT MODE WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO THE GAME . BUT WITH IT......A DISASTER . ALL SAY THIS BECAUSE IM GUESSING THE DECISION HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE TO PUT THEM IN THE GAME. AFTER GETTING ( ROOTED ) ( YOU CALL IT ) AND THEN BLOWN TO PIECES. I WILL (NOT RESPAWN BACK IN. AND THAT WILL. BE EVERY BATTLE ,EVERY TIME!!!!! AND EVERY TIME AFTER THAT!!! AND THAT IS SOMETHING I'VE NEVER DONE! AND IT WILL BE ON (YOU) PIXONIC. !!!!!! FOR PUTTING A CHICKEN SHIT COWARD WEAPON IN THIS GAME!
WHEN IT ALREADY HAS TO MANY WEAPONS ADDED IN THE LAST 5 UPDATES. YOU GUYS SHOULD ,( STOP ALREADY.) ( STOP THERES ENOUGH. New Weapons and New Robots already!! AND THIS IS ANOTHER 1 OF MY GUESSES, BUT I THINK THERES ALOT MORE PLAYERS THAT WOULD NOT LIKE TO SEE THEM IN THIS GAME. THANKS, YA IT WILL BE ON YOU PIX ,THAT LEAVE ,AS YOU CALLED IT A TEAM GAME.IT WOULD BE YOU THAT LEAVES THAT TEAM A PLAYER SHORT FOR NOT LISTENING TO THE PLAYERS. JUST BEFORE I DECIDED TO LOGIN TO THIS PAGE.I WAS PLAYING THIS ACCOUNT AND EVERY F--KING BATTLE THE CONTROLS KEPT STICKING ! AND I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS NEW WEAPON, AND WONDERED IF MAYBE YOU WOULD LISTEN. (AND) BETWEEN THESE (2 WEAPONS.) & THE THREE TIMES LONGER UPGRADE TIMES. I THOUGHT ((( HOW MUCH DO THEY THINK WE CAN TAKE )))

Pixonic, if you're reading this, please listen. I don't want my favorite game to die. People are quitting, all because it's too hard to compete in the higher leagues, and nearly impossible to get there from the lower leagues! You've gotta' help new players get a foothold! You can't just keep making fancy, amazing components robots and weapons that are IMPOSSIBLE to get. Eventually, you'll run out of players because they'll quit because they can't keep up! And when those players are gone, those people who CAN keep up will get bored without as many players and THEY'LL leave too! I can't sit by and watch as this amazing game dies! You have to do something! You HAVE to!

Just got the Taran in the event. 3 hours to upgrade to lvl2. Use to be 8min. That’s a 2k% in crease in time. Will the payout now be 2k times more? How does this increase help anything?

Tosspot3 months ago

I have 4 shock trains on spectre i earned my way to champ and i assure you that setup is easier to take down than you think. Build some old school sniper bots and learn to use them and the scourge shocktrain dark times will end. I use fury tempest and I eat spectres for lunch on most maps but not all. Small maps I'm finding mercury thunder pins work on them well with jump smash ability even at lvl 9.or you can use the small shielded bots with lock on weapons. Tip when specter jumps its Stealth apears active but it's not for about 1 to 2 seconds. You can hit it airborne if you are waiting for it to jump.

Tosspot3 months ago

No way I just got a taste of the new upgrade times exodus from lvl 6 to lvl 7 10 days. That's crazy! You said you would increase upgrade times but that way too much pix. I spend gold on time and have payed cash for it. You just ended that your loss pix. I will put all new weapons on the back burner until you come to your senses. The weapons I already have will go to mk2 lvl 12 now and my wallet is closed for the time being. Too bad too, you got us some cool weapons now I can't and will not get to use them. Bad move pix. The new gun looks cool though. So sad.

Uijo3 months ago

Christopher Wormuth, Christopher Wormuth, The button could be a one big play button, but you can edit which modes can be played under that random button. That way only team death match could be selected, or domination and beacon rush could be selected. It means that those that choose one play mode have themselve to blame for longer wait queues; a reason Pixonic has declared in the past they dont want to do such a thing. It also looks better than having several buttons for each play mode, especially considering the number of modes there are in the future.

Pyrotech4423 months ago

JagcatRSP, I think it's just the speed that's the problem, they say that the spectre's weakness is its low health, but with 55kmh speed, it will just get behind cover before the stealth will run out. I think 50 or 48 or even 45 is more reasonable for a robot with 4 medium slots, it as a matter in fact has the same firepower rating, if not more, than a fury, so there needs to be something other than health that gives spectre vulnerability.

However, in battle I have seen the spectre dominance so close to haechi, and sometimes haechi seems like the dominant choice. This shows how overpowered these dash bots are even after a nerf.

Now if there was a second nerf...

-5% dash bot health nerf to to all dash bots
-Kumiho dash recharge nerfed to 7 seconds (it's a medium robot like rog, not a light robot like cossack)
-max mk2 Spectre speed nerfed to 48kmh
-shocktrain -5% damage
-when shocktrain hits a physical shield, it deflects back with 50% damage (shocktrain chain is just absorbed)
-nerf 100m chain range

I think the shocktrain deflection is the most imortant balance because it will add more skill to the weapon, so you have to fire players with a physical shield at an angle

So what? Something is needed against the clans who have shelled out $1000’s for hangars full of specters and shocktrains (all MK2) so they can decimate the opposition is 3-4 minutes which has become super boring and ultra predictable. These are not the weapons for that because you can’t lock on when they jump and then they scurry and hide so these are useless, especially if it they are only partially effective. And of course they will cost hundreds of dollars.

If I have three or even four MK2 shocktrains, I wouldn't say a single word against them. If I have none, I may say a lot, but I do have one and going to have two, and I still complain, shocktrains are way too powerful that they make other weapons look ridiculously ridiculous. Anyone with average game skills will easily win or reach the top of a battle with tripple shocktrains, except that player is too dumb to improve. Shocktrains are designed for dummies, not for players with guts and skills. I don't wanna sound rude but the stupidity here is rather stifling!

With every new weapon or robots launched proves the unstoppable snideness of Pixoshit towards f2p players, I suggest instead of making and launching these turds make a powerful robot or weapon of 100M silver as I don't know what to do with my 857M silver.(Like the Pixoshit is going to read this lol).

JagcatRSP3 months ago

JagcatRSP, Afterthought:
Spectre jump/stealth recharge time should be adjusted to be longer. It would make game play more fair. I had a few games where the whole team wasn’t able to even hit more than 10 of them against a whole team of Spectres. No team should be ineffective against a whole team of Spectres. I don’t mind a challenge but it takes the fun out of it when you can’t even touch a whole team of the same robots. Please consider fixing everything I just posted about.

JagcatRSP3 months ago

smokeyjoe, Shocktrain isn’t that great trust me I know I use it. There’s a charging time, a lock on time and it damage was already halved I’d say. Almost the same for scourge.

Vukasin Korica, I agree that Spectre needs to be fixed. It’s like so many weapons that makes it impossible to beat. Read the post I put up about things that should be changed. It’s on this thread. Again I agree with you. It could be a great way to stop some OP robots but it’s oppasite side is if the team of robots you want to stop has the same weapon. You’re done.

JagcatRSP3 months ago

Christopher Wormuth, Yup each mode should be a choice. Whoever said that I’ve been saying that for a while now. Battle modes should be selected.

JagcatRSP3 months ago

Please also work on some of the other weapons. Since you’re thinking out how it effects battles. Orkan Taran hydra trebuchet too powerful. Needs more limitations. If you’re going to allow for shocktrain and scourge. I feel it’s unfair to have the locking on to targets take so long since first shock rain takes time to recharge already. Secondly scourge takes forever to lock on targets. As well as target lock. It’s ridiculous when you are in the middle of a battle you shoot and the target changes at last second. Sucks when using energy weapons. You can say hit lock on but there have been instances when people come out of nowhere and it messes up your intended target. Lastly your rating system has to change for each battle mode. I say this all the time on your Instagram. On your Facebook account too. Thanks for your time. Still love this game app.

Christopher Wormuth3 months ago

Uijo, I do agree with you on the ability to choose your battle mode. At least give us the option to choose between beacon focused modes and killing focused modes. Group Domination, Beacon Rush, and King of the Hill together under one button. And group Team Death Match and Free-For-All together.

Oscar Funez3 months ago

Really Pixonic. Altough it's a fun concept. But what does it matter. It's components. It's very obvious it will be. The avenger is a silver weapon but no. Let's make it components also. Now this garbage. There is so much lag. So many bugs. But fuck that. Let's make a new weapon that is worth 10 thousand components. Like getting any components is easy. Workshop points. Worthless. Supply drops. Worthless junk that you can't even get anythung anyways. Those reward boxes. Worthless. You don't earn shit. Takes days to get a box anywas. But let's be smart. Make a new weapon and fuck the community well guess what. Screw you and your garbage. Test servers. Usless. No one even uses the testing content. All I see is players with there dumb dream builds and making it impossible to even test anythibg.

Not sure if we need more weapons? Especially since the upgrade times are now insanely long.

Will this weapon cost silver, gold or pieces, because if it will cost pieces it would be another pay to win weapon like almost everything in this game. Couldn't it just be like when the game first started: the only currency there was were silver and for the better things gold. Please let it be like the good old days

Why can't you fix matchmaking and the taran bug and many other problems before introducing new content!?

Pixonic, you need to offer value for the money spent from the customer in your company. Introducing robots that dash, costing a lot of time and money, now you want to nerf them with root weapons.
You are going to make all dash robots useless with this root weapon.

This is a very bad idea to the 'customer' as now the customer knows the value of there investment in your platform. AKA lesson learned, mistake was made.. do NOT invest any cash into this game.

You must show value for your customers investments.
Pixonic War Robots, you never pay attention to test server feedback. ) have tested it for years now. I have given video feedback of bugs and cheaters in the game for years. This is not my first account in the game.
It took over a year for you to stop a turning bug on the Fury that started in Test Server. A YEAR.
Players didn't want Dash bots in test.
Players don't want root weapons in Test now.
Shocktrains are still insane. You punish players for leaving game modes because they cant pick and choose anymore.

Sorry for going off topic here... but there are a lot of things to fix in the game besides nerfing a lot of robots for new ideas .. don't you think?

What about a way to invite a player that is not a facebook friend or a clan member, to simply group with? Is that so hard to do ?
The mechanics are there in the game since an officer can search for a pilot by there ID so why not make invites work??

Sigh, I have been saying for quite some time now, there NEEDS to be a change in staff.

SunsynFF, SunsynFF unfortunately once something has a finished looking in-game model on test server, it’s basically guaranteed to make it to live server. Pixo doesnt care about ppl saying something is too op, they just want to make more money

My fellow f2p pilots should I give you an advice that stop saying that what will Pixoshit (I always call it by this name) do when all f2p or non payers players leave this game which is impractical as take myself as an example of semi-developed f2p player who didn't spend a single cent on this deteriorating game and still not intending to quit. Instead of this we must beat the wardrums against Pixoshit by doing more and more tanking.
Let me explain, if you do tanking and disrupts the enjoyment of new players then they complaint this to the company and after some time I hope the company leaders may wake up and do something for new comers which ultimately benefits us or in another way if they does not wake up then we have the benefit of tanking which I assume all knows.
At last I must say greed and ignorance are two holes in their Titanic which repeats history of sinking in different way.
Any other suggestion to wake up these sleeping leaders of this company who misdirects developers are always welcomed.

DeadBobChicken, Wallet tankers will be the only ones who can affors this. Its a new way for pixo to hurt the freeplayer.

FireBringer 3 months ago

What kind of drugs are you pumping in your veins pixo? Oh yeah, money. Greedy selfish rich exects that thirsts for money. Do you even care about your players or just the ones that give you money? Keep ruining your game. It was awesome but since update 3.0 its been decending into a disgrace. And now with this new development it'll just suck. Plain and simple. What are you gonna do when all your free players leave? Your favorite wallet warrior clans wont have anyone to bully when they drop thier league to tank. And thats another thing, every season a player should only be allowed to drop 2 league levels. (Gold 2 down to silver 3 and no more as an example.) Then your lovely wallet tankers can cry "oh boohoo i cant compete because i have no skills and all i know what to do is beat up new players thay dont know what they are doing".

And your making freeze guns for the biggest turds out there? Which we all know youll sell for big bucks. The players are onto you.

I believe in you programmers. I believe that you will do the right thing and not let this happen let this happen.

Mountain man , Mountain man - I think you nailed it. The main appeal of the game when I first started was the simplicity. Like side scrollers of the 80s. You could play it for 10 minutes or 2 hours when you didn't want something complicated. Now it is feeling like a chore to keep up.

Battle of Titans shows promise. Maybe it will be able to keep that simplicity over time.

Uijo3 months ago

This is a bad joke. It took me a while to get a haechi, and its going to now be fairly useless against a gepard with shredders. War robots keep adding new weapons and robots making the game unplayable because of the lag, meanwhile ignoring what players consistently ask for. Let us choose the game type we queue up for so we can avoid Team death match if need be. Also create options so that i can set the graphics quality to low.

Scar123 months ago

Interesting idea. Currently it seems mobility and firepower are the too most valued abilities in the game (the latter coming first). Utility effects such as the freeze in these guns will not be strong enough to consider using instead of guns with high DPS. Nerfing the high DPS guns could change this but even so, the freeze effect has more potential to slow down gameplay instead of provide utility for your team. The 8-10 second immunity from the same effect twice also takes away from the idea of using multiple of the freeze guns because more guns would only mean the freeze can be used to engage a battle quicker rather than freezing someone mid-fight as a teammate shifts their focus to help you. -Scar12

Why don't you balance the weapons before adding new ones. ex. Shocktrain.....

SunsynFF3 months ago

Sorry, but this is a HORRIBLE idea, I really hope it never makes it to the live server. I wasn't real happy with the healing bots, but mostly because I think they should have less weapons, and make players choose between firepower and healing. This immobilization crap will not only be overused by wallet warriors, giving them even more advantages, It just makes no sense in this game. Listen, I know it's just a game and a lot of weapons, hell, the bots themselves aren't based in reality, but if you start introducing bullets that "freeze" bots, you're opening a door this game wasn't intended for. What's next, a potion the bot drinks that "un-freezes" you? This is a shoot-em up type game, lets not make it a World of Warcraft type game with wizards and magic spells.

KBstorm3 months ago

SunsynFF, It's ok though because we are making double silver now... oh wait, that didn't happen either, never mind.

SunsynFF3 months ago

Kameron , Could not agree more, I have been saying same thing for months. When you win components, like by opening chests, the rewards are way too small, I opened a couple gold chest the other day, and one prize was 500 components for a bot, I was like WHAT!?!? on a gold chest, that's only 5% of whats needed. Then the market stuff you can buy with WS points or gold is horrible too, 400g for 200-400 components??!! GTFOH

Weyland is not doing Great. Its Healing Power is not as strong as it was seen in Test Server.Please Buff the Weyland. Also at Maxed Mk2 level 12 it gets easily killed

KBstorm3 months ago

DeadBobChicken, Tell me again why tulumbas were nerfed? Were we bothering shocktrain clans too much?

Kameron 3 months ago

Kameron , Oh and also components are impossible to get, rly and I’m lvl 26 I have one gust from a star invasion and that’s it, make them easier to get and not so pay to play, I love this game and don’t want to loose it due to disinterest

Kameron 3 months ago

Ok that’s nice, it really is, but I just want like a story mode or something to play when u can’t connect to internet and ur cellular is down.

KBstorm3 months ago

Most people will get locked down and shocktrained to death. Pay to play has the advantage once again. The 20% chance should also be applied to shocktrains, they should only have a 20% chance of training their energy to other bots. These new bots will make it easier to for shocktrain clans to club smaller clans. Originally geps were nerfed to prevent clans from clubbing, now we all get clubbed by shocktrain clans so what was the point? We are back to square one. I know Pixonic wants to profit from, well everything, but you have never found a way to get the "pay once in a while" players excited about spending more cash. Another fail until shocktrains are nerfed or changed, these new weapons won't make a difference.

The Big Drop3 months ago

Even without the immobilization effect, I like where the Shredder is going–not so much with Pulsar on the last test

After the debut of the Boosters in the WR 4.0 Update, and now the 'root' effect of these new weapons, it seems that (at least) some of the ideas from the hoghly controvetsial Module concept have been reworked into OTHER ideas.

This situation should be addressed in an article telling pilots where module developnent is at now.

DeadBobChicken3 months ago

But btw pixonic needs to nerf the noricum and zenit to nothing

Sounds annoying.
One of the best things about turning people on to this game was its simplicity.
Now its so complicated to understand and keep track of even for the veteran player...
These news letters are just propaganda to sell more things...
No workshop 2.0 from that newsletter last year... but here boosters, some new game concepts, new map, economy changes, an event, new weapons, paint jobs, and even some additional lagg.
Dont worry we boosted the silver so u start drowning in ag. Then we made Au. invaluable for upgrades that take a week per level, just try not to use them on boosters,or youll have to pay lots of cash on crappy gold offer we have now. Id you get outgunned, youll assume it was because of the boosters, then you will buy some to because you wont realize it doesnt even effect you anyway, cause we have written it into the code to help or screw you, based upon you stats anyway.... so ur fudged... have fun pilots!

Pontius Pilotus3 months ago

dear santa...i want a weapon that gives you a chance to auto kick the player you shoot, put em straight in LPQ, and they're gonna need to collect a 10.000 components of keys to get out of there in which can be purchased from black market only for $99.99 per 3000 components.. amen

Warren Dixon3 months ago

I sort of agree with you (@POWMIA), but it clearly states, "We don't want every fight to start the same way. By making status effects chance-based, we drive force pilots to react instead of duly executing pre-memorized strategies." Hopefully this will put a damper on that happening. I have my fingers crossed and wait in anticipated bliss...LOL

POWMIA3 months ago

I feel "Immobilization" shouldn't be Introduced to WR...it destroys the very fabric of the game and will completely dismantle the fun of out-playing not out-staying your opponent's...I'm terrified of losing interest to play WR...My opinion

Warbozz Rakzar3 months ago

But then you realize tankers will be using this stuff too,... thanks Pixonic. Also if they are squading these could hold you down and in place ready to eaten alive be shocktrains, Deathbuttons, snipers, just everything

DeadBobChicken3 months ago

Looks amazing and i love the concept of taking on tankers with spectres and dash bots. Weell done pixonik. Love it
