Keep telling yourself that AK and eventually you might believe your lies. Ignore ND Dev MacGrubers statement on why theres a rise in mollies and bombs. Ignore White boys video evidence of what we are talking about. Ignore the umteen molly threads of people complaining that theres been a rise in mollies and bombs since the patch. Ignore peoples explanations of what they are experiencing. Ignore the 12 people who kudoed monkeys thread titled ... Molotov nonsense now worse than ever ... Ignoring these things does not suddenly mean they are not happening, it just means you are refusing to believe its happening because its not happening to you. Keep telling yourself lies if it makes you feel better AK.

The funny thing is that in the end, ND is the one that will make the decision. And as i recall from a veteran's post somewhere, ND BARELY goes back on their decision of nerfs and buffs
Skill, Coordination, and Experience will lead a team to victory.

That smiley didn't give it away? I wanted to start something. Looks like it worked...

 

Anyway...

 

Are you telling me my experiences never happened, so I'm just imagining them? When I say that I'm not experiencing an increase in molotovs and bombs, I'm lying? You calling me crazy? I'm saying these things to make myself feel better?!? Feel better about what? My experience has been the same since launch, in terms of weapon usage and item usage, except WHEN people get sticks and WHEN people craft molotovs and bombs. The actual AMOUNT, in MY EXPERIENCE, of bombs and molotovs are the same since launch.

 

Sure, when a team has crafter on, they get more mollies and bombs, but you could have done that at launch. I don't know about you or anybody else complaining's experiences, but I know mine. Giving one instance of a barrage (i.e. whiteboy's video) is purely anecdotal and not concrete fact. I have experienced a barrage of molotovs and bombs at launch AND now. Doesn't mean anything.

You are h3ll bent on trying to convince everyone on the forum that there is an increase in mollies and bombs, aren't you?

 

I don't doubt that some of you are experiencing an increase in bombs and mollies, especially early in the game.  And I don't doubt the players who don't really see a difference or a minimal increase, which is the category that I fall into.  

 

The thing is...this game has too many variables to determine cause and effects of the number of mollies and bombs in the game.  Some games there's going to be more bombs and mollies, some games there's going to be less, some games will be on par with pre-1.05 patch.

 

Look at SOME of the variables that determine the amount of candy being tossed around.

 

1.  Number of people running crafter 2-3.  The more players on each team that are running crafter, the more likely there are to be more bombs and molotovs in a match.

2.  The welfare system.  How big of a lead does one team have.  The bigger the lead the more candy the boxes hand out it seems.  The smaller the lead the less generous they become.

3.  How bad or good is each player doing.  If you are doing poorly, the boxes are more generous.  If you are doing ok or well, the boxes become more stingy.

5.  How many times is each player hitting the supply boxes.  The more times players are hitting the boxes, this increases the chance of more candy being tossed around.

6.  Opportunity cost.  Players are skipping making a noob stick to make bombs and molotovs.  Players are putting in more materials to keep their noob stick intact because they don't have Brawler 2 equipped. 

7.  Duplicate items in supply boxes.  Some games, you get every item you need to craft a bomb or molotov EXCEPT that one bandage or one blade you need yet you have 4 extra explosives laying around on the map because you can't craft anything.

 

Those are just some variables off the top of my head that determine how much candy is being tossed around.  Every game is going to be different even if you did the exact same thing and crafted the same things every time and opened up the exact some boxes in the same order.

 

There is no right answer to this because of so many variables come into play to determine the match experience.  With no cinema and no kill stats, no one can say for sure if there's an increase in bombs or molotovs overall in a match.

Ok 3 matches in a row with NO supplies to craft much of anything. No mollies at all. Only a few bombs. Yet I'm dying repeatedly to mollies in every match. And yes my team has gotten a small lead in each game, but the lopsided molotov distribution not only takes away my tiny lead, it gives them a solid lead and I still get no molotovs or nail sticks. It's hard to dodge 2+ molotovs in every engagement.
Welfare sucks! Especially when the lead is only 4! And I'm still punished even after losing the lead.

Let's see if it happens for a 4th time in a row
