Anyone else notice things are unbalanced?

[ Edited ]

The game is actually really fun, but I've noticed that the balance between the weapons is off. I know that the hammer should do more damage than the sword, but it seems as if the difference is skewed way toward the hammer. The sword is nearly useless against a hammer. That and the special abilities that the hammer have can keep the sword user bouncing way more than is fair. I believe that the sword should have a ranged ability like the hammer. Not as strong as the hammer or as wide, but maybe something thin like a blade beam. Maybe it should be a thin blade beam that doesn't do as much damage, but goes farther than the hammer attack. Anyone agree or disagree?

Well played, sir. Well played.

Yeah, I know I'm really good at GOW and if I go up against someone with a Hammer it's a little unbalanced.

The best thing you can do against a "World Weapon" is dodge, it really works against the hammer but it's not as effective against the blade you would have to try to run and dodge.

Actually, the only difference between swords and hammers is their specials. If you know how to use aries sword very well, it's easy killing players but I haven't tried any other sword out because of the low damage...

I usally do pretty well in matches but there is this one hammer I've seen that will just decimate everyone. I don't know which one it is otherwise I would be using it...

We're working on a system, codenamed "DCDS" =) that will allow us to make balance changes on the fly to specific values for armors, weapons, etc. In the meantime, we're gunning to introduce some balance changes in an upcoming Beta patch, not likely before the Holidays.

 

We will keep you posted.

 

Cheers,

Tank
