Whoever is creating these new stuff is really good at observing the current events of the game. The dash bots are now countered by Lock-down weapons, the Spectre is now countered by the Falcon, and everything else that is fighting at point-blank range are finally countered by the Suppression bots.
I'm a free-to-play War Robots player who primarily uses Raijin and Fujin. Based on my experience, these two are underperforming very much. The Raijin's shields are durable but not quite. It is still easy to wreck it unlike the Rhino's and Bulgasari's. The Fujin seems to be doing fine but it's main problem is its HP. It's kinda ridiculous for a defensive bot to have low hp and it makes the Fujin squishy and very vulnerable when its shield is down. Also, its shield only regenerates when you activate Sentry Mode. Also ridiculous. Moving on, the shocktrain is obviously the most hated weapon in the game. I've seen a lot of comments about nerfing the shocktrain's damage by 5% and reducing it's chain range to 100m. I highly agree to this. The Haechi and Bulgasari are the two bots I hate the most. First, the Haechi is pretty fast and tough and the Bulgasari's shield is ridiculously sturdy. It would be great to nerf these two dash bots.
First of all, you can't see the shocktrain's "glow" like the trebuchets. Second, they can't possibly suggest us to stay away from our teammates. Third, physical shields are now easy to destroy because of how OVERPOWERED the shocktrain is.
Maybe you guys should increase the shield hp of most bots except the Bulgasari. The Lancelot's are almost useless against the new weapons and the Gareth's and Galahad's shields are also puny. The Rhino needs a wee bit more and the Raijin should have like more shield hp per piece. Also, Anciles are getting very easy to take down nowadays.
First off, Shocktrains require skill to use. If you wanna kill someone with a shield, hit the bot near it. Second, you can't just helldive randomly or go kamikaze mode every time you see someone. You need to have skill to time the use of your ability properly and effectively.
When it comes to dying, the Hellburner is the best. It explodes when it dies so it will be a good bot for causing chaos among groups of enemies and a potential harbinger of anguish and doom against a lone wolf bot.
Probably the most annoying trickster bots are Stalker, Kumiho, and Hellburner. Like, seriously. Stalker becomes impossible to target, the Kumiho whizzes around like a flea, and the Hellburner forces you to think twice wether to chase it and bring it down or just leave it alone.
I agree that griffins are great and powerful but in the upcoming updates, I think griffins are gonna be facing a big drought because of the new bots, Raven and Bulwark. ( check the 3.8 test server vids)
I understand what you guys at Pixonic are going through. People think that you guys don't care for them but that isn't true. You have a lot of things to take care of. Developers can't always add what all people want. They know what will happen if they add every single one of our suggestions.
