Path of Exile dev comments:
"Other melee skills can't compare to Earthquake in terms of damage and AoE potential."
"Even the best Earthquake builds are clearing at 70% of the speed of the best ranged [bow] builds."
"We'd like to make melee more comparable to the ranged playstyle."

Path of Exile patch notes:
Nerfed Earthquake [barely viable melee skill] in three ways
5-15% damage increase for some melee skills
30-70% damage increase for some ranged skills
Enemy life significantly increased by around 30% (net melee nerf)

...so after admitting that melee was falling behind ranged/casters, they nerf melee and buff ranged/casters. GG GGG

My sides when "This is a buff!" is in the patch notes next to some of the tiniest changes and none of the significant buffs

Tried to get my brother to bully you with the artillery but he was too busy capping flags :(. Stoopid tank too good at hunting Miffs.

How good is it? I've yet to try the light tank (Tankgewehr Landship is hilarious), but other tanks I really haven't put time into.

Passive Spotting is the future!

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

Yeah, the tank hunter is extremely silly if you get someone in the side guns.
That being said, the howitzer setup is bad compared to the other 2 but still quite fun. You'll win against every land vehicle but a tank hunter land ship at close range due to the hilarious amount of damage(46 damage vs light tanks if you get a good angle, ~34 frontally vs landship/heavy), the machine gun makes ammo management much easier than the AP/canister combo of the close support tank and the gun can actually tear down walls in a reasonable timeframe, unlike the flanker setup.
Problem is that its anti vehicle firepower is very limited by its short range, a fact made worse by the very range oriented map. Unless a vehicle is within 20m or so, you better be great with that gun or you will lose without hitting.
The thing I'm disappointed about is the heavy. It should be a really nice party bus but right now, it doesn't really do much.

The comments on MarbleDuck's most recent video.


"Criticism/telling people they're wrong = ad hominem attack -> arrogant dick -> using big youtubers' names to generate views"

"Stop using so much high school maths for simply a video game, spread has rng and is therefore obviously bad"

"Stfu you have an annoying voice, therefore you have no idea what you're talking about"


On the other hand, the blatant insults in the comments on YouTubers such as XFactor and LevelCap is slightly worrying.
something something Model 8 bestgun


How to ice an A-91

Next, wanna try adding a guy that you KNOW is bad, and just testing to see that? Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

PP-2000 added. Y'know, it's not that bad....

Yes, it comes in last so far, but that is mostly because I'm making it shoot at 100m ADS - Not Moving as one of the criteria. Even then, between 50-100m Not Moving, when you include Useability, it is only 1.37% worse than the MTAR-21. Within 50m then it even beats the A-91.

Have a look, vs. the A-91 Carbine:




Using it with Muzzle Brake and Compensator is a wash in terms of overall performance. Comp is SLIGHTLY more accurate, while MB is SLIGHTLY more easy to use. Their overall scores are basically tied, with MB just ahead. I guess either can be recommended.

But... You can't be counting for the fact that it takes 9 bullets to kill at "long" range... Don't you dare tell me my A-91 is worse than a 9 BTK 650 RPM mediocre PDW.

Also. Just go heavy barrel. The recoil is low enough.

Well, technically...

Comparing a PP2K with HB and an A-91 with comp and stubby (as you suggested in an earlier post), at 50m not moving, the A-91 is only better by 4 damage per hitrate. While at 75m and 100m, surprisingly the PP2K does better than the A-91 (I'm pretty damn surprised as well).

And 10m and 50m moving the PP2K also does more damage per hitrate than the A-91. At 25m the A-91 is only better by about half a bullet's damage as well.

In addition, the PP2K has a much larger mag size and substantially less recoil. And it looks hella awesome. So comparing the A-91 to a PDW is of some worth after all, as the PP2K is better (technically, not practically) than the A-91.

Mind blown.

I... I...

*cries in a corner*

Zer0Cod3x explained it very well. If you look at the raw numbers right here on Symthic Comparison, you can see how that happened:

A-91 vs PP-2000 | BF4 Weapon Comparison | Symthic

A-91's "23%" RPM advantage only afforded it 1 extra round.

Reload times are wash.

Velocities are wash.

V-Recoil are wash (and this is HBar on PP2k vs. A-91 without).

Hipfire and ADS - Moving are better on the PP2k, but it's a PDW and not the surprising part.

The surprising part is that, as equipped (and we see above that PP2k HBar has almost same V-Recoil as A-91 without HBar so why not?), the PDW performs better at 50 - 100m than a bloody Carbine. Why?

H-Recoil Spread, 0.525 vs. 0.45, advantage PP2k.

SIPS, 42% better on the PP2k.

And here is the most important part. ADS - Not Moving Spread, 0.35 vs. 0.2, 43% improvement.

Without HBar then of course the PP2k loses, which is why when I add all the attachments together for an Overall Ranking, it would slot below the A-91. Run HBar on it, though, then... I'm sorry
