Well…the booster combinations might have changed but the cloaked stat hat benefits are the same as before the patch, right? If it was grossly overpowered before the patch, then arguably, serious talk of nerfing this hat should have happened a long time ago. OP…your argument has merit, don’t get me wrong and while I was (still am) against the booster slot changes, I’m going to live with them. Having said all that…
I have to confess to being selfish here since I use the Knight’s helmet a lot and I’d rather it wasn’t nerfed but what about a 100% blindfire accuracy reduction? Full disclosure here…this would affect ME virtually not at all since I aim nearly 100% of the time BUT one of the big complaints about Cloaked (in general, never mind just the hats) is that people lurk in hiding with power weapons and pop out to get free/easy kills while blindfiring.
Just a thought.
There was talk about them being OP before the last patch, but I guess not enough to get ND's attention. Or, they chose to just ignore it.
A 100% blindfire accuracy reduction sounds good.
LOLDerf, stop trying to do this!
Even though I very much agree, it is one of the best if not the best stat hat there is, I do not like all the various Situational Awareness variants in the game which is why I use it over Cloacked gold and because I like to have the perks of being immune to exposed but also being able to hear the funny one liners every now and again.
I don't want it nerfed due to my opinion of bad game mechanics and selfish reasons but I know it is much more useful in comparison every other stat hat.
I can only hope that ND will just let it go until Uncharted comes out and there isn't any Power Plays that reveal your name along with all those other BS things it makes you immune to.
Drake's nipple hat and Talbot's nose ring FTW
Lol, do you even use Cloaked stat hats Leaf? I remember you using the call out ones but not this o.O
Anyway, i agree that the Cloaked stat hats should have a bigger down side, specially now that you can use regen gold as a slot 2 to cancel that....
