General Discussion / Heavy Clip: What is it good for anyway?
« on: March 16, 2016, 08:13:51 pm »
While I was thinking about the upcoming balance changes, it reminded me of the heavy clip change a while ago. Is heavy clip actually optimal at anything anymore? How the hwacha works means it can do mid-ish range without heavy clip anyway. It loses on heavy caronade to lochnagar or charged. Light caronades don't do much shatter damage anymore, and with heavy clip is not enough to destroy a balloon. On gatling you're better off using lesmok for range or greased for short range. The only thing I can think of is minotaur, and that gun isn't really good enough to utilize it either. At this point it's basically a dead ammo. I miss sniping components with caronade and I know they won't bring it back, but they need to change something to make it viable again. Maybe lessen it's clip reduction? I fear that if the lochnagar changes in dev app go through, loch will go the way of heavy clip and be only somewhat effective on one gun. Does anyone have any suggestions for making heavy clip useful again?

Edit: Not sure if this should be on Feedback and Suggestions, but I'm not really suggesting anything anyway, just starting a discussion.

Feedback and Suggestions / The Real Goldfish Fix
« on: April 19, 2014, 10:12:11 pm »
After seeing the goldfish being taken to a few more competitive games, it was pretty clear to me what the biggest problem was: how easy it is to disable the goldfish's front gun. I'm pretty sure this is the general consensus of goldfish pilots. Once your front gun is down, you're a fish out of water (pun intended). Instead of arcing its side guns forward, which would just make a more mobile and overpowered spire, I suggest that a protective hood arcing up from the bottom of the goldfish should be implemented.

First off, there's no way this could be overpowered; the artemis arcs downwards, so any blenderfish or hwacha-fish approaching would have to move in high. As opposed to the hood covering the top of the front gun, a blenderfish can't just go under an artemis and make the artemis useless. I'm thinking the artemis (or caronades, gats, and any other fast shatter weapon) shouldn't be able to hit the front gun head on, but maybe a few degrees above it.

I'm not opposed to any other shielding ideas, but I think this could be implemented easily, and make the goldfish more viable of an option in competitive play again.
