Nerf Engine Mods!!!

40 replies 452 views Edited Jul 28, 2012

Seriously, I was just in a server where a European guy in an American server could dodge everything I was throwing at him.  Why?  He was using CAF, with shield, and running the all mighty skill: Engine Mods.  

 

The skill makes you crazy fast.  Not only that it makes missile dodging too easy.  I fly Advanced and dodging with engine mods is way too easy.  It's the only competitve flight skill.  I want to be able to join a server and see a variety of skills used in the air.  I like to use scavenger, but how can I can when everyone is going faster than I am.  Seriously LBI, it upsets the already broken air balance.  

 

P.S.  Reduce shield to 33.  

 

P.S.S.  I would like to see something to tell us what skill the player that killed me is using. :smileywink:

How can you tell if a player is from EU?

That's the baggage you get with a skill/perk system. I can't believe you actually want to slow things down, though...Hawk feels like a dern jalopy without Engine Mods.

Actually I don't want it to be slowed exactly.  I just want the missile scrubbing to be equal with and without engine mods.  It's just to unbalanced.

They should remove Engine Mods and increase Hawk speed slighlty. All problems solved.

Even better, remove all skills from the game.

This.

 

If you up the base speed and reduce the engine mod gain, it should be a noticeable difference but not a drastic change like it currently is.
