I could provide a ton of other screenshots if you want me to.
I made this topic to discuss about a couple particular matters:
First of all,the drops!
I talked to these guys and most are free players (Terra Ratchet dude said he payed around 20 bucks,got rubbish and never spent again and someone on the forum told me Darkstare also spent a little).
The dudes got (most) of their actual items for free!
Do you have any clue just how much some of us spend and get epics?
I,for instance,got a Windforge as a noob just a couple days after Fortune Boxed were launched.
I never got anything good after that,not even for the 50 euros I spent (and keep in mind that some spent thousands and get rubbish).
El_Metre has spent a little over 6000 dollars and didn’t get a single plate while others got them from fortune boxes/rubbish portals.
And he’s not the only one who spent to get little to nothing,but in any case,nowhere near close to being worth the money!
Actually,there are a lot of us who went (are going) trhough the same thing.
Second of all,the items!
There is a huge lack of items and many experience a lack of them to make a good build (unless they spend thousands to get a couple useful one or are hackers).
The drops are way too low (and they didn’t even show us the actual chances nonetheless) and some items are close to impossible to obtain.
Third of all,the builds and the arena!
The last update in which they removed the modes made the arena a little WAY too unbalanced.
I can’t get past rank 5 because of item shortage and guess what:
I mostly fight hybrid mechs.
Some people have such crappy build but they win,because either RNG is with them so they’re just crazy lucky,others are 800 hp lower than me,don’t even deploy a drone but they win because of the arena shop using NO STRATEGY,firing the first thing that comes to their hands and many more things that put me into a state of rage and complete misery as a player.
The arena is not what used to be anymore and the builds are nowhere near close to the builds before the update.
Everything took a turn in the wrong direction here.
I played on a friend’s account the other day (rank somewhere between 20 and 18,don’t remember exactly) and as a lower rank,everything is a little smoother.
But as a higher rank player (not top),the arena must be one of the most cancerous things to do ever.
You face crazy builds,some of them are f2p and extremely OP (and yes,I mean OP) and kick your soul without even thinking before what they click on and you lose.
And keep losing and losing,hoping you’s find someone like your sorry self that you can beat to maintain your rank.
This is just not right.
Just how many times I wanted to quit because of how crazy the arena has become.
Fourth of all,more about weapons/items in general!
You all know the Valiant Sniper,right?
The wonder weapon of some that will never get it while others get two of them from fotrune boxes/portal boxes.
And right now I’ll talk about energy in general (as an energy user myself so you can’t say I’m just crying out loud):
The thing that will drain half your tank if the opponent still has 31 energy.
It drain so much for so little that it’s broken.
It must have either a nerf or a cost increase,because the noob physicals I fight have a Valiant (yes,you read correctly) and will use that to drain you and kill you with their Interceptor torsos and NF’s (I’m sorry I didn’t take a screenshot at that time,you’d bang your head on the keyboard).
Energy in general is broken.
Draining 300 something in just 1 turn,are we?
Please wait a second and I’ll find a match to take a screenshot if you don’t believe me.
Right,here you go:
The dude had more but I cut his cap and even did extra damage because of the electric extra damage.
Sorry but I couldn’t get a better match/better screenshot from someone with more energy.
As for physicals:
They also have a tactic but it’s way more primitive.
That because of the lack of f2p items and physical weapons in general.
But what I wanted to say is that,after a certain health sum,you gain turns,turns in which you can do up to 1000 to your opponent!
And yeah,it doesn’t matter wether you have 1800 hp or 2300 hp,you’ll still get an extra turn (and do another 1000 damage of you start first!) or lose if you start second.
We were chatting about the 2v2 update and the dude just used a charge.
If it wasn’t for that charge,his second mech would have still been alive,as I killed both his mechs with mine,that had enough hp itself to inflict 2 full combos worth around 900 damage each!
Talk about unfairness.
As for heats…Not much to say as a physical and electrician as I kill 8/10 heaters I face.
And the ones I don’t kill are mostly because they have broken first mechs,range/turn advantage.
There are a couple other things I’d like to point out and discuss but I think this is enough.
Let’s continue this in the comment section below.
@Sarah247 @Mohadib Please read this,give us more items,give us equal chances to items and battles and please make the game more balanced.
Does everyone agree?
