"When there's a dominant meta, players should have all the tools they require to counteract it. Modules provide them with these tools" extracted from above, yet, older bots are getting fewer module slots. How does that help them "counteract it"? I still enjoy running my Gareth for example, all he's getting is one measly passive slot? this just seems to be making the already deadly bots even deadlier. Weren't the modules going to be a way to level the playing field? Don't you guys have any plan to make this game the least bit challenging for your paying players? Do they really need this much edge over their F2P counterpart?
ECU should be made more useful. We waste an entire weapon slot to equip it and on some robots, you basically have to turn your back to the enemy for the shield to catch anything. I think it would be great if the optimal angling was something like 45 degrees rather than the existing 90+ degrees it is now. Then, you can keep an eye on the enemy while reloading. Would really dampen the mood on all these new energy weapons, making it into a bit more of a game changer. Rather than having to run Gareth, Galahad, Lancelot and Raijin in order to have a useful physical shield. Anyways, just thought.
