Thank you ND (hat/booster complaint)

For taking my money. I liked the lab maps so I bought some new taunts that I liked. Then when stat hats were introduced I said I'd never buy them...

Then the Cloaked stat hats were introduced. I lost to players that couldn't touch me before (the scrubs known as COM+ and a few others). I looked at it to see why. Well the common factor was the cloaked stat hats.

Basically with the hat you get 1 of the top three boosters in the game. I use FF now with it (and leveling scoped in for sniping) and its overpowered as **bleep**.

That's ok, though I guess because I've been through this before with QuickBoom. Don't blame me, blame ND. I use what I have to keep up with the Joneses. Either that or lose to trash players. Thanks for that ND.

By the way, the game is so much easier with cloaked and FF combined. I had to change from Dead Explorer and Charlie Cutter for the first time since launch but it was worth it.

And the minus 10% regen speed is so barely noticeable that I question whether it actually does any adverse effect at all.

Some how i think thank is not the correct word to be in front of "you".

That's why we read the original post: so we realize he's sarcastic.

I know how you feel, those Cloaked hats are far too powerful. I used Chloe's Heavy Hat today when I was getting Gold tier (For Elena's hat, if it is this week, I still have no idea). Easy wins. You have less than a second of regeneration speed added, and you can avoid one powerplay, Call Out, two boosters, a kickback, a paid booster and have your player arrow completely removed. Derp, who thought that was a good idea?

It's not just useful with Fleet Foot though, Endurance, Beast Mode, Scoped In, Explosive Shell Expert and Weapon Expert all become monster boosters with this stat hat. Lucky Regeneration doesn't really work for some reason.

I'd love to see this crap get removed, but it's unlikely now.

Fleet Foot is mehh vs competent players, the tryhards (myself included) use WE with M9 RoF + BF Accuracy with the Cloaked Hat or if solo ESE with the hat. As a FAL user I also use 3-D Glasses with Cloaked.

There was a problem with patches across regions when this was introduced: EU regions said 'Cloaked' while US versions said 'Disruption Immunity' at the time ND said it was a text glitch, I guess not.

I think I was the one who first brought this to the communities attention thinking ND would E-Patch it, once again, 'I guess not.'

Never really had much trouble spotting players with or without the player tag.

ND never intended to patch it. Wanna know why? Because SCEA & SCEE would have to issue thousands of refunds. Smiley Wink People bought those hats for a reason and I don't mean the aesthetics.
