Having the recoil increased wasn't the solution we were looking for, but I don't have a problem with that, but having to play with a weapon that doesn't have too much power to stop the people blindfiring me, not having aim asisst and increased recoil is too much for me. I could be using the GMAL, but why should I do that? I could use Talbot's FAL-SS or Eddy's AK instead.

its fine, I will admit I was never a fan of the G-mal but I did use it from time to time. The accuracy on that thing was crazy, it literally stuck to the enemy until they died no matter what range you were at.
I always saw it as a problem that the G-mal was a better sniper than the Dragon. Now that isn't a problem, and with a bit of practice (or slapping on the Acc mod) you can still use the gun to its fullest.
The gmal is FINE!! Its far more difficult to use the dragon or fal yet you rarely see players complaining since they actually have to aim.
Huge respect for the snipers putting up with the sticky assist and actually aiming in a fame where its a disadvantage.
Easy kills as opposed to a guy with M9 RoF 5 feet away from you not even aiming? PFFT. The only people that agree with these nerfs are people who were getting smoked by these guns. People move so fast in this game that without any aim assist really the gun is almost useless against people who know what to do. Sure, you'll get some kills with it and if you are some kind of elite user who spends 5 hours day playing this you MIGHT succeed past the other dudes in the game but that is such a small part of evrything that is doesn't matter. The gun was simply overnerfed because of all the crying on the forums by people who don't use it.
But I am used to this. This whole fanbase is a bunch of tweeny whiners who always get their way and they have since U2 1.05 where ND destroyed their series. They said they would not do it again but it seems to me they are trying their very best to do everything wrong. I like their DLC maps but it just gets old when a dev has to appease whiners and doesn't really even play their own game enough to balance it correctly.
The FAL SS also sucks a bit and was overnerfed imo. Instead of drastic changes these guns needed slight changes as is barely anything done to them. Too often devs just seem to have no clue how their changes affect the entire game balance. It pretty much comes down is there a lot of whining on the forums? Well, what do they want?
They're called Co-op fans.
Go back to the M9 RoF then where 90% of the userbase subsides. Your own **** is broken but you wouldn't know that. GMAL is basically broken at this point in time.
Bring back hardcore and people wouldn't whine so much but they took that out to to make more room for what the noobs and cheesers want.
