IMO the implementation of offensive kickbacks in UC3 was a terrible idea. It annoys me a lot that someone can spawn a Rocket Launcher, or an insta-detonating grenade as soon as they get into a dangerous situation. It allows the other team to get kills that they didn't really deserve and it just serves to help stronger parties noob-stomp even harder.
I'm not against kickbacks in general I think Smokebomb, Juggernaut, Speedy G are creating kickback ideas, but I hope that if ND makes another game they remove offensive kickbacks such as the Hammer, Quickboom or put a limit on how often you can use it per match.
they are a good idea, its just the PW kickbacks + Quickboom that are the problem. Offensive kickbacks like militia man, creepy crawler, hell even explosives are a good idea.
Thats a good point. But, when is the last time youve seen someone use any of those kickbacks? They are excedingly rare. That just goes to show the poor implementation of KBs in this game.
Im not willing to take the good with the bad. To me 0 offensive kickbacks is better than a couple "tolerable ones." I dont trust ND on that slippery slope, is all.
Yea I haven't seen those because of the PW kickbacks and Quickboom... They don't use those offensive kickbacks because there are others that are just better.
My problem isn't offensive kickbacks, the problem is spawning a PW in your hands in maps that don't even have that weapon or whatever.
The solution isn't get rid of everything because some are unbalanced... the solution is to get rid of the obviously better ones and bring balance to all the others with improvements. I mean it's good to say that most defensive kickbacks are actually decent already. Some of the lesser offensive kickbacks are actually great and balanced. It is just the weapon kickbacks that are the problem in my eyes.
Think about it on a scale from 1-10 on usefulness, we have plenty of kickbacks that are 4-6 in usefulness which is great, but with the few we have that are 9-10 obviously people both noobs and pros will go for those, hell I even use RPG simply to snuff out people who use t-bolts QBs and sawn-offs, etc.
In other words, because there are bad seeds, don't destroy everything, just take out the bad seeds...probably won't be for this game but maybe UC4 you never know.
I get killed by it every match its ridiculous
Maybe its just cause I mainly play Objectives but I rarely ever see quickboom now, almost as much as cursed Idol.
