  2. So next patch / hot fix you reckon we'll finally see the end of the 2 and a half year long Bolter-Geddon? Or will it be another quarter of a decade before the Bolter crutch meta is taken away from the ever enduring TAC-Ocolypse.

    I mean it's only fair after all, every other massively broken OP meta from all other classes / builds / weapons in the past which was taking the jobs from other classes have been nerfed into their place, why should the Tacti-Bolter meta be the only one exempt from this rule.

    One rule for one and another for the rest doesn't work if you want people to play a game, it is a game after all not a real life tyranny simulator.

    And you never know, without an 'easy-mode' class / meta sapping all the fun and concept of a fair fight from the game people might actually start playing EC again.

    So how do we do this?

    Most importantly, of equal importance;
    -Remove /Rollex
    -Add reload animation frames to swap combat knife back to Bolter

    And this would be a 'nice to have'
    -Increase the stupidly short ttk on Bolter (either by reducing damage, reducing rate of fire, reducing accuracy or a combination of the three)

    Do that ^ and we're on our way to where things should have been for the last two and a half long ass years.

  4. Yeah it's a sad state of affairs when your pistol is your best melee weapon, sadly the melee community's voice just isn't a priority but hey it's worth a try.

  5. You don't fix melee by nerfing the bolter.
  6. No. You fix the game by nerfing bolter

    You fix the game by nerfing one of the worst rifles *thinking*

    What melee community? wasn't anyone who spoke up for melee bullied and called bad until they stopped posting/playing?Its happening to you and Zathral as I write this.

    Didn't whole guilds who wanted Ork fixes also get the same treatment? Bullied until they left?
