So the PC is still a usable weapon, let's just get that out there now. In no way is it "trash", I can still get anywhere from 18-30 kills in a game with it and I'm not even that good. It's respectable, although slightly niche in application(mostly attacking, defense is kinda iffy). That being said, since it's nerf(which must have happened sometime during my break) it's damage is now low enough to leave players in a downed state when before it just popped you. Hell, sometimes people even survive a direct hit period now(mostly Orks/CSM). However looking at the other races "equivalents" we find weapons that will bypass a downed state. Kannon and Rokkits, both sharing similarities to PC can completely annihilate you with no downed state. Reaper Launcher can down you with no downed state(although I know one of their shots is getting nerfed so that might have changed). This becomes an issue because, while I may get a sweet multi-kill on a cluster inside, I can't finish the job before they get back up or lose my shot window for whatever reason. It reduces the effectiveness of the PC in what seems to be it's role now of dislodging dug in Heavies. The counter argument for leaving the PC as is right now though of course is "well CSM is winning pretty good and they have same PC and no other weapon that removes downed state, not even AC" which is true but there are other factors to CSM vs LSM in asymmetry. I can't say for sure or not if it would be a good thing to do, so I brought it to ye ol' forums for debate. I know, personally, there are many times I reeaallllly wished PC didn't leave a downed state, but at the same time I've had games where I felt I made an impact despite that.
