You know what would be a better idea than the weapon penetration? Actually buffing and nerfing each weapon depending on how good or bad it is. The robot resistances are fine, but they need a lot more balancing, because on the test server, there was no difference whatsoever except with only 2 bots: the bulwark and weylandCheck comments
The previous workshop system was just fine. But your introduction of components forced you to completely overhaul it. And just like what happened with the seal clubber issue back in the day, you went WAY OVERBOARD for a fix to a small problem. All you needed to do was to place anyone with magnums or gepards into silver tier rather than bronze. What do you know? There go the tankers. What did you actually do? You completely overhauled the matchmaking system for a defunct system that destroyed game balance for a long time before reaching a state of mild equilibrium. Even now, the leagues are a pain to deal with. And instead of having to deal with mag-geps that were the same level as the destriers and cossacks, now those same low level players have to deal with maxed out overpowered dash and descend bots with maxed out mk2 weapons, which in my opinion, IS MUCH WORSE THAN FIGHTING SAME LEVEL GEPARDS. How does this relate to workshop 2.0? You created an over-complicated solution to a simple problem. The new components are too hard to get? Hmm, how do we fix that. I know! We overhaul the ENTIRE economy and make their components available through that system. What could you have done? Here is a list of things that you could have done to fix the obtaining issue:
- Make them workshop point/gold bots
- Make components directly buyable with workshop points and/or gold
- Create a separate system for obtaining components and unify them as a single currency
Are these harder to implement? No. They are much easier than overhauling an entire economy. Why is it that you always make things so much more difficult than they are?
There's a difference between calling something OP because you don't have it, and a bot actually outclassing every other bot in the game. There is a reason I retired my brawling galahads, rhinos, griffins, and rogatkas to swap them out for dash bots. Spectre is so much more powerful than anything else in this game, and the haechi and bulgasari with their massive mobility and huge firepower make them so much more deadly. If the dash & descend bots aren't OP, why is everyone in champion league using only D/D bots and not anything else? Sure you may see the occasional bulwark, griffin, fury (fury is part of a whole different meta), or raven, but that doesn't make them any better, or the dash bots any weaker. In the end, it all comes down to their maximum performance, and the dash/descend bots are clearly the best to those who can seeCheck comments
Pixonic, are you really that blind? Can you not see all this hate that you are getting from the wider community? Are you purposely trying to drive your game deeper into the ground? Stop introducing all this new crap and give us what we want! Now what do we want? Let me list them down:
- Find a better way to deal with tankers
- Nerf the dash bots
- Nerf the shocktrain
- Buff the thunder
- Nerf the Trebuchet and gekko
- Nerf the orkan and taran
- Get rid of TDM
- Get rid of your Pay-To-Win mindset.
Are you ever going to listen to us or do you only open your ears to the wallet warriors? Open your eyes for once in your career. Your game is dying. Learn to fix it!
Worst idea yet. I had high hopes for this to bring back the old bots, but it turns out this is just another cash grab to make the already OP premium bots even more OP. In the %0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 chance that you actually read this, just know this. MODULES ARE A SHITTY IDEA THAT SHOULD BE SCRAPPEDCheck comments
What did you expect? Did you expect a system that spoonfeeds you with 10000 components a second? And so what if WP is gone? You can just create whatever components you want. It's not a big deal, it's not a money-grab, it's a slight change to the current system which will change the game for the better.Check comments
And still nothing about game balancing? I thought the return of Philipp Gladkov was a great thing. You really need to step up your game and nerf all the OP bots and weapons. The haechi, bulgasari, spectre, shocktrain, orkan, and dragoon all need to be nerfed drastically.Check comments
Nothing about weapon or robot rebalances, nothing about slowing down with all the crappy new weapons and robots, all 3 of these are more moneygrabs. Pixonic if you will not listen to us, then just shut down the game already so we can happily move over to BoT. If workshop 2.0 does not live up to our expectations, then you are finishedCheck comments
Forget this changing currencies crap. Adding in the components destroyed the balance of the game. I was expecting you to be able to convert WP into whatever components you want, but NOT to completely flip over the entire currency system by changing the prices of everything to components. You have really messed up the game while also completely ignoring the real problems. You just nerfed the galahad, gareth and lancelot by buffing the orkan way too much and you nerfed the light bots by changing the rotation speed of heavy and medium bots. I was expecting either a buff to these bots or a serious nerf to all the weapons in the game, namely the orkan, hydra, tempest, shocktrain and gekko. You have disappointed me, and i am not happy about thisCheck comments
