Balancing act

#17Nobody5Posted 6/26/2010 3:00:58 PM
Another big problem with online team games is the issue where a team of mostly high ranked players are matched up against a team of mostly low ranked players. That is extremely frustrating especially when you are new to the game and now learning how to handle online games.

HVS Tony, I know you aren't the main guy for this part of the game but can you tell us if a good balancing system has been in place.

Also, how come there aren't any new types of grenades?

What other grenades potentials are there?

Hmmm...im not very creative when it comes to this kind of stuff. I dont know...a grenade that when detonated sends out a splash of goo that sticks to enemies and leaves behind a trail until they die so that you can track them down....bad idea i know...but im sure other people have better ideas.

Im not really asking for any more grenades to be put into the game. Im just wondering why they didnt put in any (if they didnt put in any).

HVS is always open to suggestion. I'm sure that any new grenade ideas would be considered if you e-mailed them at feedback@high-voltage.com. That's a much better way to voice your grenade concerns, rather than tossing criticizm around.

I didn't read all of it yet but that should answer your question.

I would like new grenades, as long they don't reduce the number of new regular guns.

A smoke grenade for human
A toxic splash nade for drudge
And a slippery nade for trust

Just to name a few examples.
