[Announcement] Changes to “wedges”. Mass testing

Recommended Posts

Very interesting system , thank you very much for your job , best news for sure , finally build balance will come with weight consideration reality , im very happy , thx again for this news  :014:

WOW, dev. So this is the image of 'Wedge' build in your head.

So did you believe people complained about 'wedge' which looks like that?

VisceraCleaner, this is just an example captured for the art, that's all

Also, i can't understand why you guys always try to use weight limit as a standard. Are you kidding me?

Then how about Cohort vehicle with Colossus engine and only one starter wheel ST?

BUT, unlike the first test, the acceleration of vehicles whose weight limit was close to the maximum will decrease gradually. Previously, the acceleration of such vehicles fell sharply even from the lightest hit car.

Because of its high weight limit, its acceleration will be reduced less than vehicles with more tonnage but less weight limit.

 

Also, don't forget after wedging the target, wedge builds will have advantage to attack the victim without being attacked by him.
Just slowing down acceleration can't be enough disadvantage.

But it is positive that you guys are actually trying to do something to solve wedge problem.

I hope you guys care about the balance little more.


Edit: I still believe tonnage should be only standard in this mechanism.

The mass of a vehicle that is being raised will still be taken into account as pasrt of the mass of such vehicle. Plus, there are additional changes implemented with this ineration of open testing, so I recommend you to try them ourt in the game!

Some really nice news, and i like how u are going to implement this wedge change. But pls, mandrakes are still an issue, and it takes almost no time to change compared to how complicated this system must be to make, u could even have given us a temporary mandrake change months ago yet u keep dragging it out. Pls have a mandrake fix for next update.

Ka1deron (Posted )

M4DS, yes, some of the necesary changes for this aspect are being worked at. It is very likely, that they will be included in the nearest updates

For this they no forget to say this " We would like to note that we do not abandon the mechanics of dealing damage to the chassis " 

 

for me that's the most dangerous change cause exploit can be finded with this posibility , BlackHat youtuber prouve it in video , wait and see but that's the most hard to add i think

I hope u guys dont implement the damage when the wedge car exceeds the masslimit, cuz it does not do anything with the car in low ps. Mass limit depends on the cabin, and in low ps like 7k, they dont use full mass in it. So wedge in the low ps has advantage that they will get less damage than the wedge with high ps which uses full mass. If dev really want that wedge is dealt, there should be somehow standard which is ps global.

So, I dont like u guys still think to implement the damage option, but seems other things are great

Hi dev, u guys said when the wedge gets weight over the mass limit, unlike the first test, they get slow acceleration decrease, right? then is it also same in the speed? What i mean is, if the wedge get the weight over masslimit, does it decrease the max speed?

If the wedge that goes at 100 km/h is still going at 100 km/h with a car on it then it doesn't make sense. Is it just acceleration or also max speed ?

It depends on the mass of the "wedge" and other vehicle, but such colission will have a direct effect on the speed

Still, 5,395 kg vehicle (7040 kg tonnage) can lift 16,149 kg leg build too easily.

It seems with some initial speed, still wedge can lift even track, auger, meat grinder too, but well... it is something related to physics. 
IMO, heavy builds should be much more heavier than now. They are too light to have enough momentum.

CEPnalL.png

In fact, wedge builds are also heavy (this vehicle in screenshot is 15 t) and they can still lift the so called heavy builds (19 ~ 30 t) so easily.
At least, they can't advance but still they can have free chance to destroy the lifted target before the target gets out.

 

I think this mechanic will work well with some balance overhaul, especially after making mass make sense.

There are too many balloons (e.g Chameleon is only 60 kg lighter than normal single person) and heavy tanks in Crossout are lighter than normal farm machines.

... are the devs aware "wedge" builds don't look (at all) like this pics ?

Wait, do they even know what the community mean when talking about wedging ? Because between this and the fact that this new mechanic literally doesn't change anything to how efficient wedging is, I'm seriously starting to wonder if there isn't something lost in translation.

This will only prevent a wedge from carrying you across the map. The first iteration was clunky, but this new one is absolutely pointless.

If you don't intend to solve the problem to keep the favors of that chunk of your customers who rely on it, please do nothing instead - because this is just embarrassing ...

Inflicting damage shouldn't be ever considered, it is total BS, you are outsmarting someone and yet you are punished for his incompetence and also wedging some heavy build types is the only way to win with them.

Besides on a wider note, this whole "wedge fix" is a BS lazy workaround instead of a real fix, game physics fix, instead of fixing that and not allowing to wedge much heavier builds than yours (and it is not only that) they just allow things to work as it was, no changes at all, but now you will be punished for doing so even if basically the physics is so broken that you wedge anything no even trying much.

Without inflicting damage maybe this workaround will be fine if they dont want to do a proper fix.

Also do something with horizontal mandrakes already, there was a proposition so they do a lot less damage if the shells didn't reach a certain height, at first i though it would be too punishing in corner case scenarios, but in reality if mandrake is caught by something with a normal weapon it is already dead anyway and also it was designed to shoot only upwards, so basically there is really no reason to not force it to reach certain height and if not lower the damage, there would be no workaround about this regardless how you would build it.

I agree with you.

Without fundamental changes, this will work quite hardly.

It takes my partner 10 seconds to drive down from me. 10 seconds being wedged is quite alot of damage he would need to tank. Its something i guess

The first step in a (good) Direction.

nerf hover when? nerf lance when? the majority of high ps dosent care about wedges. are hovers gonna be fixed? they are dominating for years now and all dev do is nerf dog. the one thing that counter hovers and they cry. hovers have **** good acceleration in all directions making it highly manuverable even when 20 tonnes which is stupid. if you have a 20 tonne wheeled build it would be a slow brick but if you have a 20 tonne hover its normal. and one completely outmanuvers the other one. at top tier catching a hover requires a lot of outsmarting and teamfight tactics but you are making jobs for hovers easier and easier. also remove lances already, it has capability for a 14 lance build to wipe out the entire enemy team in clanwars and is stupid

We had tested too and we also got similar result.

 

YVACcve.png

With wide and long vehicle, driving down from the wedge was impossible or took longer than 10 secs.

 

Xj7PWYE.jpg

Even same nimble wedge builds could be lifted at least for 3 seconds.

 

Still wedge is threatening and can neutralize some vehicles easily for quite long time.
So...

He is right.

 

I think this change is fine but there should be more.
Lifting light vehicles for long time is fine, but wedges should have bad time or risk to lift the heavy builds.

The problem is, in Crossout, heavy builds are not heavy so making difference for wedge in current mechanism is so difficult.
Heavy builds should be heavier and be actually HEAVY.

Depends how realistic you want it to be as wedging is not lifting, in real world you need a lot less weight to wedge something, less than half of its weight if it is touching the ground, so in this example ~7000 kl of leg build is quite close to 5400kg.

It all depends how realistic it should be and how much broken is the physics in game, that's why we should have a better and more transparent thing than this "wedge fix",, there should be a hard weight difference limit and force that will allow to wedge something or not.
