Gotta love CCP logic.

Multiple threadnaughts with math showing how armor is inferior to shields in every single way, and how the new modules wont fix even a quarter of armor's issues.

CCP responds by adding a new shield module, making shields even better.

The promised fixes to mass driver hit detection and explosion mechanics are nowhere to be seen

I guess us mass driver users get to suffer another month with a mechanically broken weapon, let alone the unjust and severe nerf in uprising based on a butthurt dev in a LAN party (this was the actual reason it got nerfed, beta feedback and market data was totally ignored)

Still don't see anything to lower SP costs, restore the Mass Driver, or buff armor. At least the nanite injector.

SP costs are fine now after they reduced the cost of dropsuit skills dramatically.

It only takes 1.2 million SP to get a basic protosuit, and about 2.7 million to get a racial protosuit, these values arent that bad compared to when uprising first launched, and it was 3-5 million respectively
#6EX_BortthogPosted 6/26/2013 10:18:42 AM

What would this achieve except serve to heighten the gap between players?

Lowered SP = SP difference refund = you are back to square 1 but people with more SP invested get more in return

Well if they live up to their promises a lot of useful things got fixed, and more than a few useless things. I'll hold my breath though I remember they claimed to have fixed joining a game at the end of match in the last patch, but it still happens.

If the nanite injectors are actually fixed though I'll be happy. Those have been so broken since uprsing that I almost stopped carring them anymore. All I got for attempting to pick people up was getting killed while I danced around their corpse.

Even More Stuff

Additional 1.2 changes include:

* Improved speed of RDV vehicle delivery as well as applied tweaks to the RDV AI

There's your Mass Driver fix

Hopefuly the next patch will deal with another problem for logi's, namely the repair tool. It's a rather small hit box to target some one with, and once you lock onto some one it's rather difficult to switch targets. You have to basically disengage and keep going until you hit the right person. It be nice if you could tap the right stick or something to cycle threw the available targets. It's even more of a problem with the more advanced tools that have a longer range.

Well that and dropped equipment simply disapearing if it lands wrong. Most equipment doesn't have a lot of uses and is a real pain to restock, namely dying or switching out your suit at a supply depo. So when you uplink, nano hive or even proximity mine just poofs away it's frustrating. If swear the proximity mines are the worst though. Sure you can restock those from a nanohive but still half of them seem to disapear when I try to put them down.

And no I did not hit my limit of mines available, and I was standing still on a flat surface.... It makes mines more than a little bit useless. They don't do a lot of dmg, taking any where from 3 or 4 of them to blow up a LAV, and your a complete sitting duck while your attempting to put them down.

IMO that sounds like YOU Lum, my buddy uses Core Focus rep tool just fine and it has like a 3 foot range

Also, again while my buddy talks about equipment fizzling its not that common, like once out of every 100 deploys he says something

Prox Mines are a HUGE threat to LAVs, I'm warry of them in my Limbus, a Logi LAV, because basic Prox Mines can almost take my LAV out and atm my LAV has 42% damage reduction always
