I am sorry to tell you, but this update will be the end of the road for many players that enjoyed playing on the ground.
I simply cannot play my builds anymore, due to the changes brought to the game.
Imagine buying premium for 3 years straight (YOUR PRODUCT).
Imagine capping uranium for 3+ years, and upgrading relics, just to have them become useless.
Imagine upgrading firebugs and flash, just for the enemies that you kill in cabin, to now be stuck on your face, and make you useless, until you manage to get free.
Killing a spider in cabin, is a death sentence, it just falls on you and you cannot get away.
Killing a hover makes it get stuck on top of your car, and you cannot shoot straight due to the reticle aiming at the dead carcass on top of you, plus get mass-tonnage debuffed.
Killing a ground vehicle makes it act all sorts of ways, and sometimes disables your car by going under your build.
Wheels feel super clunky, sliding around and oversteering, very slow to change direction and pick up speed again.
That doesn’t help at all in combat though, since the car cannot keep momentum like before.
Seeing as I need to be on my target to deal damage, there goes 300.000 coins worth of fused items, into one build, that is garbage compared to what it was before the big change.
Hovers have a speed of 95kph and instantly change direction, which makes them impossible to stick on, with ground movement parts, reverting all the players that used to play that, to hover kami breaker-something.
95km/h, instant directional change, flying higher than before and jumping over every firebug and hybrid-lancer build, no matter how tall , … not being affected by slow effects … like whaaaaat ?!
Have you even tested this patch before releasing it ?
It’s definitely the end of an era, and I am not sure I care to play hover melee, I didn’t pay nor play for that.
Everything that I worked towards, for the last 3 years of constant premium subscription and constant fighting in Clan Wars, to cap uranium, has went to shit after 1 single update.
How is this ok ?
How do you go on with ruining an archetype completely?
Look, I have no problem with you people, it’s your game, you do what you want with it.
BUT if you want to go around messing with things like this … selling a product in good faith, and then changing it and making it useless , because you can, after people have upgraded it and cannot return it … is just evil, and in the real world, where we all live in, is considered FRAUD, and charged appropriately.
Just give me a REFUND for all my stuff, all your producs that I’ve bought and you’ve made useless, and I will be on my way.
I cannot use the products I’ve purchased from you, they are useless now, and you did that, with a patch.
Nobody asked for this, and I am sure, the way you’re doing business can be considered ILLEGAL.
This is a DISGRACE, and you’re lucky you deal in an “online environment”, because otherwise I would sue you with customer services and bring you to court, just out of principle!
