I run my own studio and I have made it a rule to never listen to feedback of Discord people, and instead we send out surveys to our fans to get actual group consensus. Almost every time group consensus is the polar opposite of what Discord tards are saying.

          So why did they nerf/change it again? I used it against bots and thought that it probably had too much ammo overall but still felt pretty powerful. Except for the low RoF making larger groups challenging if they were spread out too far for the AoE to hit them. It felt like firing a single autocannon round and then reloading.

            Because if you aimed it right and were on level ground, you could one shot chargers if every single piece of shrapnel hit by shooting under them while they charged you. That's it.

              That sounds more like a problem with the charger itself instead of the weapon. Sort of like when they nerfed the railgun because people were killing chargers in 3 head shots or removing the leg armor in 2. Now you can kill chargers in 3 head shots or remove the leg armor in two (but it takes slightly longer because you have to charge more)

                See that's the part that makes me wonder what they were thinking about when they changed the RG. They made the EAT/RR one shot chargers in the head while also gutting the RG at the same time. People were only using it in the first place because it took two shots to the head with an EAT to do what a RG could do in 3 without a 70 second cooldown.

                All that happened was that the meta changed from everyone bringing the railgun to everyone bringing the EAT. Now they've walked back the railgun nerfs to where it's nearly identical to where it was before the patch. Seems like a waste of time to me. Plus they balanced things based off of the PS5 bug causing the railgun and arc thrower to 2 shot bile titans.

                The EATs you have to wait for and only get two shots at a time. I regularly play Diff 7 where, guess what, usually more than two charges spawn. RR also has a slow reload so if anything attacks you during it you're fricked. Meanwhile pre-nerf railgun can clear a trio of chargers in no time at all even on safe mode. Even unsafe mode is extremely easy to master unless you're a moron or a child. Also RG doesn't take up a backpack slot.

                Yeah I know. You basically repeated what I just said. Current RG has to charge slightly longer than the old RG but the change is so small it's almost unnoticeable.
                >Only 2 for EAT

            >>So why did they nerf/change it again?
            The given reason was because after shrapnel was changed to be able to self-damage, people were claiming that the pellets would randomly bounce back and instakill you out of nowhere (which was apparently found to not be true, although personally I have some really weird "explode out of nowhere" moments when I was using the Eruptor the day that the patch came out), but it was later explained that it was because the shrapnel was always super janky and depending on where you put the shot and how the it scattered you could do really silly things like oneshot chargers. The fact that it could both oneshot devastators and scout striders and also wipe out small groups of enemies probably made it too versatile in general in their eyes.

            The Sickle‘s recent nerf wasn’t even a nerf, the heatsink (basically magazine) lower limit count didn’t even matter since a skilled player should never overheat a laser weapon to need to replace a heatsink.
            The Eruptor nerf ruined the gun, it’s not even viable for anything and at least before the nerf it was the main reason to buy the demo warbond.

        Anonymous

        The most noteworthy nerfs from the last month:
        >Quasar Cannon cooldown increased by 5 seconds. One of the main ones that people complain about since good AT is needed for high difficulties and recoilless rifle/EAT were much more awkward to use.
        >Eruptor "rework" which deleted its shrapnel but buffed its explosive damage -- and was stated to be a buff -- actually nerfed the weapon dramatically. This is right after it lost half its reserve mags (which imo was a reasonable change). The hottest of these and what's complained about the most right now.
        >Crossbow got "reworked" (actually nerfed), since people were using it as a pack clearer when the devs wanted it to be a "shaped charge weapon" (even though it's not that good for killing armored enemies and also can't kill fabs/holes, so I don't know what they're talking about), which was also seen as confusing since it wasn't that popular to begin with; combined with the Eruptor nerf, it more or less shat over the entire warbond.
        >Arc Thrower had its stagger nerfed; bigger nerf than expected
        >Sickle reserve ammo halved
        >Dominator damage reduced by a bit (after being buffed to 300)

        You can also add a lot of their other kneejerk balance changes (railgun damage nerf, arc thrower stagger nerf, punisher nerfs) to the list.

          The only change the original rail gun needed was making it so unsafe had an actual use instead of just making the gun perform worse. So that was an acceptable nerf in my eyes, but your right it didn't need a damage decrease. If I was them I would have made it need to be in unsafe and make it charge faster. So it would still kill just as effectively but you'd have a smaller window to get the overcharged shot off without blowing up.

      If a PvE weapon is "OP" and requires nerfs thats the devs mistake for not testing properly and they are the ones that should be punished by refunding a percentage of Super Credits to the playerbase after every balance patch. You do NOT punish the customer for your failure to QA.

        The alternative is broken warbond content staying broken forever and slowly ruining the game but even faster.
        The element you are missing is that a large amount of people don't buy premium currency and the gear is supposed to be balanced normally and like any other gear and no one is have the rug pulled on any of this, Arrowhead has been actively tweaking all gear and weapons constantly.

        The real issue is they are just really fricking bad at it.

          How does having strong weapons in a PvE game ruin it? Diminishing unlocked rewards retroactively ruins a game much faster tbh. And what is the realistic F2P Super Credit income in this game?
          Because I don't have time to grind missions for hours every day and would much prefer to drop $5 per warbond unlock and move on. For someone like me, hearing content I paid for potentially getting nerfed anytime absolutely counts as a rug pull.
          >gear is supposed to be balanced normally
          Then put that disclaimer properly in the store page. Even if I was F2P, nerfing a weapon I grinded hours to unlock indicates a severe disrespect of my time. Balance is the devs problem, not mine. Do your job before the deadline.

                You can take as long as you like unlocking things, the warbonds won't go away, there will just be more stuff to unlock the longer you wait, but keeping up with everything unlocked is not neccesary at all unless you need FOTM

                >You pay with time
                You need medals to unlock things anyway, you're already using that time to unlock stuff, so waiting for a warbond is natural.

                You get 750SC from the first "free" warbond anyway, so you only theoretically need 250, which is 10 games at best, and then 700 from every single warbond after that which is 20-30 games.
                "Farming" SC is basically playing the game. Anyone who buys a warbond with real money is either lazy or moronic.

                I had all three warbonds and 1500sc by the time I finally unlocked the last tier of the first free warbond. (I did put medals into the warbonds as I unlocked them first).

            Powercreep is a real thing that ruins games. If you need a certain warbond or the latest warbond to perform properly at the highest difficulty, then that's gonna be an issue, as now you are pressured to buy something or just be relative deadweight. Right now instead, the warbonds vary from side grades to good to trash, but none of them hit that "yeah you are just falling behind if you dont' have this" territory. The gear you earn in the free one is plenty to perform on level with everyone else, which is good for new players and for people who don't want to feel like they need to drop more money past buying the game.
            You'll never see that in this game because of course they have the opposite problem, overcompensating with their nerfs and fixes.

            Far as the "f2P'' model goes, I haven't spent anything on warbonds. The thing is you still need in game medals to unlock stuff, so that limits how fast money actually speeds you up.
            I have two warbonds, half way to a 3rd currently, with definitely a steady amount of time put in (85 hours). That's playing the game, not farming. That's a pretty invested player though no where even near what some people have put in. I also bought some premium currency armors early on (shouldn't have, but oh well).

            >Balance is the devs problem, not mine. Do your job before the deadline.
            True but and if that's your philoslophy then this isn't the game for you because as already stated, Arrowhead is trying to push out content and fixes way faster then they actually can so half of everything is straight up not working as intended or glitched in some manner.

                It was a dumb weapon and overshadowed verything, now people actually use alot of different stratagems. Quasar nerf made sense as well, now all 3 heavy at weapons are on near equal footing so you adjust your loadout according to preference and the situation.
                If you want to tell me there are lots of stupid nerfs, then yeah, no shit. Obviously the crossbow and eruptor are i a shit state now and the slugger feels pretty whimpy, I don't see any reason to use it. I don't think any of those weapons needed the adjustments they got.
                But the idea that the devs should NEVER touch the warbond weapons or can't nerf them is silly. The eruptor shouldn't be oneshotting chargers randomly and whatever nonsense was going on there.

                was absolutely fine, now it's an inferior option. It's not just 15 seconds of cooldown, it's several seconds of wind up as well so it already had about 15 seconds of downtime between each shot as it was

                Quasar nerf is fine. They're fair downsides for a weapon that doesn't lock you into a huge reload animation and has unlimited ammo.

                Big wrong. Still great for bugs.
                >it was a rumor they never even confirmed to exist, and if they couldn't recreate it then its such a non-problem it doesn't even need to be addressed
                There were multiple rumors, the main thing was just the randomly killing yourself and friends. Doesn't really matter, the point was their "fix" is absolutely moronic.

                You can fire FOUR fricking RR shots in the time it takes Quasar to cool down and charge up.

                Absolutely. If nothing is pressuring you and you are safe and sound and nothing is immediately trying to eat your face or dissolve you in acid. Oh woops, that's the entirety of bug missions. When things get rough, being able to "reload" while staying 100% mobile is essential, so the recoiless will get you fricked.
                But vs. bots it's usually great because you can take cover and reload comfortably usually, so that's where they perform better in different situations.

                People stood too close to it and killed themselves, then complained there was ricochet
                They determined the shrapnel was working fine and there was no bug with it But removed it anyway

                Nah, not so simple. I used it before the change and it would not kill you from 100 to 0 long as you were healthy and had medium armor on. Something was whacky and not working as intended, glitch nonsense.

                seems a bit silly. they should’ve just nerfed ammo and made it do less dmg to anything that’s not heavy armour or instead rolled out the buff to other AT weapons and then made adjustments

                Railgun was too good. There was no reason not to bring it if you were being as optimal as possible. It dealt with everything great and invalidated every other weapon that had similar jobs. The only buff i'd give it right now is making it one shot charger leg armour off.

                It's good for bots but, honestly, an auto-cannon is almost always a better choice for the same effect. The only niche situation where you'd take the railgun there is if you RELALY want a backpack.

                scratch the “almost”, requires less precision, has an AOE, has more ammo, doesn’t require charge-up and fires more rapidly. as it stands RG isn’t viable, it doesn’t compete with any of the other weapons, there are just far better options in every aspect of it’s use. As a side note, the day they nerf the AC will be hilarious as it’s one of the guns they’ve said themselves they think is balanced

                Yeah, and then you can't fire the RR anymore because it's out of ammo. Quasar continues to fire even after that, and lets you move while it's cooling down too.

                You're neglecting how bad other things were. EATs didn't one-shot chargers at the time. They only cracked the legs open, and they performed worse against BTs than now as well. RG nerf was justified, but they drastically overdid it and were too eager to nerf it before examining the underlying problem and buffing other stuff up alongside it. Worst part of the RG nerf was the devs exposing their own lack of understanding of higher difficulties, not them nerfing the gun straight into the dumpster.

                >now all 3 heavy at weapons are on near equal footing
                lolno
                EATs > Quasar >>> RR >>>>>>> Spear
                Quasar lacks burst, severely punishes misses, and isn't able to be run alongside another support weapon.
                RR's stationary reload hamstrings it.
                Spear not only doesn't work, but it's also an inconsistent piece of shit. It may one-shot the BT. It may take three despite firing dead-on at it. Who knows what you'll get?

                Well you'll note I said 3 and not 4 because I wasn't including SPEAR at all, which yeah is fricking broken.

                I get why people like EATS so much, but frankly I like having on demand AT and there are many sticky situations you can get into when you have to wait for it or you called it in 100 meters back but suddenly you've got problem barrelling down on you.
                There are clear pros and cons for each and I think all perform well, outperforming in some scenariors, while weaker in others.

                >railgun overnerfed and pretty pointless now
                Yeah I don't disagree. I'm not brushing past everything because yeah, tons of things have changed since then, it's already quite a different game.

                And is also an inconsistent piece of shit even if it worked. I listed all 4 because the discussion is about AT weapons, and I'm not about to leave out the biggest longstanding failure or let people act surprised when it's finally """fixed""" and still fricking blows ass.

                >but frankly I like having on demand AT
                EATs work fine for this, especially if you aren't running another support weapon. Carry one + two more, and maybe you kill a charger with the beacon stick. The first shot comes faster than Quasar. The drop will come in quicker than Quasar CD. You get way more quick efficiency out of EATs than Quasar while also not having to sit there thumbing your ass for precious seconds before firing. AND you can run EATs with another support weapon like the GL for eggs. Best AT call-in. I can't believe they nerfed Quasar instead, but I'll take it.

                >railgun overnerfed and pretty pointless now
                Its recent buff actually might've brought it back into relevance on bugs. I only played one game with it earlier today, and I wasn't solo, so I couldn't glean much from it. It was already okay on bots since those actually have weakpoints. If only the devs let us have a fricking testing room for weapons.

                They clearly want the earliest available AT and the one that demands a bit more from the player to be good and are fine if it is even the best. They don't want players ever stuck with a "poor" AT option so it gets a big does of preferential treatment.

                That could be it. I'd put it to a coinflip between that and them just not understanding how good EATs are though. They very clearly don't really get how the game works in higher difficulties.

          You need medals to unlock things anyway, you're already using that time to unlock stuff, so waiting for a warbond is natural.

          You get 750SC from the first "free" warbond anyway, so you only theoretically need 250, which is 10 games at best, and then 700 from every single warbond after that which is 20-30 games.
          "Farming" SC is basically playing the game. Anyone who buys a warbond with real money is either lazy or moronic.

          I had all three warbonds and 1500sc by the time I finally unlocked the last tier of the first free warbond. (I did put medals into the warbonds as I unlocked them first).

        The problem isn't nerfing things. The problem is nerfing shit that either doesn't need nerfing or just nerfing it into fricking oblivion like the xbow because you're a gigamoron who doesn't playtest anything. That and simultaneously not buffing things that should be buffed, like the Recoiless and Spear. I can't wait for the Spear lock-on to be fixed, only for people to try it on 9 and realize it doesn't have enough ammo for its inability to consistently one shot things like tanks, BTs, and Chargers.

          it's the problem when they just look at weapon stats and calculate raw DPS stats and then decide the quasar needs a 5 second longer cooldown for no reason
          they just say "oh it can 1 shot a charger so that needs to be nerfed"
          because they aren't testing it in the game when you're trying to line up a shot against said charger but there's also a second charger and a dozen hunters jumping on and you get knocked around right as the shot goes off and don't hit your mark perfectly
          now you're left waiting longer for another chance
          it's a compounding effect and not fun

        Reminds me of this kid JJ I used to teach, he was 3 and had low muscle tone so he was as athletic as a baby panda but he always tried so hard
        And even though he couldn't keep up with the other kids and fell every time he would run he'd get right up and keep running after them

      Wrong. They were wrong to nerf anything to begin with. They needed to buff and improve most of the weapons instead of systematically gutting every single one and removing the fun from the game. This game was great the first few weeks, but since the day they killed the railgun they have been ruining the game more and more each week. They need to buff everything back to day one, and then start making everything even stronger.

      They balance around morons playing on easy instead of 7+, where every nerf ruins a build and you cant take shit that doesnt perform. Last update made bugs faster. Side effect is that all sentries barely function before getting yeeted by bugs. Gatling is the ONLY sentry that can survive long enough to earn its slot use.

        HD1 eventually added 3 more difficulties above helldive plus added in planetary bosses. Not to mention they also had Illuminate. It's kind of why the whole balancing approach right now is so stupid. If you want things to be harder, just release harder modes. And what happens when the Illuminate release and they've only been balancing things for bots and bugs?

      It has exactly two uses against bugs:

      It can also block chargers and brood commanders' crushing charges, but then they can just walk in anyway.

      That's why I said almost worthless, but there's no way it would ever be picked unless you're just fooling around.
      Because you only get 4 strategems and the near worthless bubble isn't a priority.

      I don’t get what they are trying to say about the stratagems not being utilized enough, I constantly use my stratagems they are constantly on cooldown except for the large laser cannon one as that only has 3 charges so it’s only viable for short missions or missions that needs crazy clearing asap.

    • 1 week ago
      Anonymous

      Not just that, but most stratagems have close to 3 minutes of cooldown. "Fast" ones like the EATs are still a minute and a half, and you can only take four.
      Even if the entire squad takes orbitals and eagles, so you've got 16, at diff 9 you're going to have to wait for some of that shit to go on cooldown, and you'll easily get overrun by bugs at that level.

      My buddy kept telling me I was coping tonight, on diff 9, with the three of us, before also clarifying my skill wasn't the issue, but my loadout was.
      When he was spectating me after dying I straight up asked him "what should I have done there" and when he heard I was using
      >spraynpray kinetic
      >senator
      >impact grenades
      >50/50 armor
      >500kg
      >EAT
      >Shield Gen
      >Quasar
      he just straight up told me the solution was "bring different gear, you couldn't have done anything there."

      This guy was giving me shit over my preferring how DRG handles its gameplay and difficulty (there's pretty much always some crazy play you can pull, and it'll work, to get out of sticky situations, on every loadout), that
      >some games aren't designed to have every weapon be always viable, and that's fine

      And maybe, but why the frick are there so many weapons and stratagems in this game if the devs want most of them to be fricking useless on the higher difficulties.
      Except oh wait, I, some random dingdong, play on a higher difficulty than the fricking developers (they play on diff 5/6, I play on 7-9).

          it's honestly shocking just how much better DRG does shit, but my b***hass friend wants to keep putting his balls in a vice with Helldivers, and thinks i"m just a sperg for liking DRG so much more, despite him only ever really playing on lower hazards and never getting creative with his shit either.
          I'm doing stuff like drilling escape tunnels in the Caretakers arena, to make the fight easier, blasting the walls of a room to give us more space, or building a ledge out with platforms for breathing room.
          Helltakers you just get better at pointing, shooting, and dodging patterns, assuming your gun/gear can even kill shit fast enough the second you stop running to not eat shit on level 9.
          I really don't think it's a matter of "personal taste" as to why I think DRG absolutely fricking SHITS on Helldivers, now. The main thing HD2 had going for it, earlier, was being American EDF (I know it's made by swedes, I mean aesthetically), and just being dumb chaotic fun. Now it's like they want it to be some milsim shit, where you're LUCKY to scrape by on diff 9.

              Like you don't have enough time to get back, or you get there early? Either way the bugs don't stop coming once you start, and the countdown's difficulty is based around having a definite endpoint. I haven't had an issue with extracting.

              >2 deep mining is just three regular mining operations, nothing special, don't even have to do them after each other.
              yeah they really need more stuff for deep dives. I think they're adding unique stuff in season 5 for those

              >3 no late game, once you've gotten your characters the way you want them they are just static. if wish you just unlocked being able to mix classes together.
              I'd argue there's a lot more variance within each class, than a lot of shooters have between classes, because of how wildly overclocks can change how you play. And it took me a while to get all the weapon overclocks. That being said, I already have them all, and can't refute what you're saying, beyond the core gameplay just still being fun to me.

              500kg, eagle air strike, (fun strat), EAT. Incendiary breaker/sickle/punisher, grenade pistol, impact grenade.

              Don’t let your fun strat be fricking lame.

                it's not that there's an issue outside that it doesn't make sense from a lore point (why would the drill not just stay until it's time to extract, why would it leave a worker behind that could keep bringing profits)
                and it doesn't make sense from a gameplay point it doesn't either (stressful for no reason since you can wait 5 hours before pressing the return button, and you'll get really pissed if the donkey randomly goes up a vertical wall and you miss the ride home for arbitrary reasons). would be much better if the mission just starts with a timer and you just get a bonus if you finish before it runs out.

                That's essentially the upcoming blood sugar modifier. As for why they don't wait, it's explained if you take too long iirc, the space station goes too far into orbit and you lose communication, and subsequently the coordinates of the pod, if they stay any longer. You see the results of failed extraction in the salvage missions.

                they drop everything and zoom to pick me up as soon as i press the button.
                and it's somehow more cost efficient to send a big drill down and have it magically go backwards up and then send it back down again to pick up me and the mule and have it go magically up again... rather than just have it stay down there until i finish mining shortly after and then have it go up again. i don't think it makes sense lore-wise and it makes for bad gameplay as well to force that stress element in there so they could just have it be a bonus if you're quick instead of making you fail an otherwise perfect mission.

                helldivers also has a bullshit stress thing at the end of every map since bugs are just magically summoned to the pickup point, but at least in helldivers you get a mission success even if you fail to extract

                All of the bugs in the game can and do burrow out when they spawn. And they're attracted to noise. It makes complete sense for them to 'spawn' near the rocket that just crashed into the planet to pick you up. I feel like you're just nitpicking.

                if you're talking about helldivers there's no noise when i type in the arrow-code for the dropship to pick me up, and they clearly are not attracted to that place before i do that so it's not "from the noise of the pickup-display-pillar-thing landing".

                sure i'm nitpicking but that's because i think that if players are stealthy and successfully reach the extraction point without attracting attention then i think they should be able to leave without a forced invasion. it feels so game-y. i'd like it more if you got a "extraction strategem" that you can throw anywhere on the map and then the dropship comes down in 30 seconds and you just have to make sure the area is safe or it refuses to land and you have to call it in somewhere else before the clock runs out.

                Because the bugs will destroy the drop pod if they just leave it there, you can see this in the salvage operations. They retrieve it for the same reason they retrieve hack-c, because it's expensive to replace.
                And they have to pull it back up ASAP because the station will be out of comms range if they don't.
                It's really not a stretch to say the station orbits hoxxes within the average span of a mission time, because the real International Space Station only takes about an hour and a half to orbit earth.

                >Stress
                Preemptively have a driller drill a path back, if it's so stressful for you. Even on modded I've found extract to be more of a victory lap in drg, than a run ender. It's not hard to run back when GSG give you perks like Dash and Iron Will.
                As for failing the mission if you fail, since you wake up in the med Bay on failure it's a logistical deduction to say they spend whatever profits you made the company, extracting you with several Boscos. Same reason you have to pay nitra for ammo.
                DRG is different from Helldivers in that the company you work for bluntly states they don't give a shit about you and only want whatever valuable minerals you can bring back.

      They need to throw every single fricking modifier that debuffs the player out the window, or at least have those that don't frick with their tools. What would be more fun would be modifiers that buff enemies instead or more stuff like the weather effects.

    If you make it so you can steamroll the game with these, then it becomes just another generic FPS game and not Helldivers. People will just end up running shield, resupply pack, flavor of the month support for armor and nothing else in the entire roster of stratagems. The game is balanced around using stratagems and then cleaning up with your weapons.

    Newbro here how do you kill armored bugs on hard? I got the recoiless rifle but it takes a bunch of shots, at least 2 to their weak spot, to kill and it's so slow I just get swarmed trying to do it. Orbital airstrikes take way too long they are usually outside of the zone by the time it comes down.

    I see other players with rockets and lasers and shit literally massacring these mobs. Is this just a grindy game where you're fricked until you level up and get better guns?

      I'd have to take a look at Liberator and Defender stats again, but offhand, wow those look like ass. I don't remember 125 (that was pre-buff Revolver damage, right?) hitting any neat breakpoints, and that's with med armor pen. Maybe the Purifier will be good for a week or two. It's hard to say with energy weapons and whatever weird shit they do with its behavior.

      Why are both of the weapons on the left light armor penetrating? Their descriptions clearly imply otherwise.

      Neither description does that. Stopping power, if anything, implies the opposite of armor penetration since it's always associated with .45 fuds or rounds that tumble on impact instead of pass through cleanly like AP would, and a bigger cartridge doesn't necessarily mean anything, especially if it's still coming out of a handgun.

    • 1 week ago

      I'm assuming that these aren't the final stats based entirely on the fact that the Tenderizer in this image is a straight downgrade from the Liberator with no upside whatsoever. Even the damage is the same despite the description clearly stating that it's supposed to have higher damage.
      They're bad at balancing the game but surely they aren't that bad.

        Too bad, anon, those stats are all real.
        The Tenderizer is literally the default Liberator with less RoF, recoil, and ammo capacity.
        Also, it gets less mags from ammo boxes and resupplies for some reason.
        And the SMG is exactly like the Lib Conc, it can stunlock enemies but that's it.

      To get you farming for metric or buying the latest toy while they quietly nerf the old ones so you're stuck in a perpetual live service game.

    new assault rifle is funny because it shows you they didn't plan on buffing the default liberator

    I don't play this game, but I'm happy for those that do. You did good. It's even better seeing snoys absolutely seething about it for some reason.

      Motivational shocks is the only viable thing in the warbond and only for bugs

        how does it work? does it just disable the slow?

          Is makes the slow barely noticeable, even the spit slow. Its hard to go back to not using it.

          Doesnt the muscle enhancement already mitigate the slow from bugs?

          No.

      Both are fantastic for bugs, the smg can stun-lock literally everything but heavies, stalkers, bile spewers and hunters, it basically deletes their mechanics. Incendiary impact is excellent for clearing hordes and breaches. For bots tho they’re just ok

        formatted that like a moron, the only thing it doesn’t stun is heavies

    I can't use any grenade but stun. Chargers seem to be magnetically attracted to me, I HAVE to stop them in their tracks.

    it's funny watching you homosexuals shill for arrowhead when they were 100% aware the PSN and fine with rolling it out until there was backlash
    this guy claims he only said this to cause a review bombing to change Snoy's mind even though it's written with nothing but contempt for you and yet he's now being praised
    you really are a bunch of gullible morons

    Getting real tired of bile titan corpses being fricking volatile. I should know better than to hang around them, but god damn if they aren't fricking blocking the objective that needs to get done.

    If the Purifier is trash I think I'm gonna call it good on Helldivers for a while. Arrowhead's strategy of nerfing everything into being unfun just sucks ass.

    i never understand why we dont just make the game harder instead of nerfing every weapon. i do 9 with my buddies and we struggle if we're not really trying, but still havent outright failed a mission since we started (we're all under lvl 35). when we do try its usually a cakewalk with some deaths.

    they should buff all weapons and just nerf/buff enemies to compensate so it doesnt feel as bad. maybe make below 7 difficulty easier so the general playerbase feels better and make 8+ harder for a real challenge

      Because the engine has limitations. They cant outright just pump out more units. Hence the compromise.
      Otherwise they would just flood the entire fricking map with bugs and it will be a-okay.

      Just bring solo back and half the playerbase might stop complaining about being dumped into a miserable solo game because of shit netcode.
      Its basically
      >Sitting in a solo lobby? It's fine someone might join and I can have fun with people.
      To
      >Sitting in a solo lobby, please join please join please join please don't be bugged
