Let’s examine this well thought out post, which calls me “stupid”:
“So much fail in this topic.”
— Excellent beginning, very cogent argument.
“Support, as name suggests, never should match raiders and tanks in solo play. End of story. Go look at supporting clasess in, I don’t know, any other game? DPS class is called that because they’re responsible for, brace yourselves, dealing damage. Support is not DPS, it is, wait for it, SUPPORT.”
— Where did I claim that supports should match raiders in solo play? Attack buffing a drone, which fires once every two seconds, is to be considered the same as attack buffing a raider, which fires SIX times in 2 seconds to you? Interesting concept. I did not know that 250×1 is the same as 250×6. Thank you for your math, please drive through.
“Gems give better bonus? Are you telling me that now gems and skill doesn’t stack? Or are you that stupid that you don’t realize that raider with gems and buff will deal even more damage? Dmg buff is lowered because most powerful raider weapons now include multiplied attack value in damage formula. If you fail at math THAT bad, then it’s your problem and I have same solution as for every other kid: stop playing games and go back to school. Learn some basic operators like addition and multiplication, then we’ll talk about game mechanics.”
— Very well put. Yes. The damage buff is better than buffing my drone. See above. Evidently your math was different than mine. My school taught me that 6 over period X is a greater DPS number than 1 over period X. Again, thank you – please drive through.
“Can’t buff your own drone? Read first paragraph about solo support.”
— Again, there is a massive difference between buffing something that shoots once every 2 seconds and something that fires 6 times in two seconds. And I believe that the inability to attack buff my drone is a bug. Do you even play this game? Last post I saw from you stated that you do not.
“Can’t predict if your teammate will die in 5 seconds when most weapons in game shoots with 0.3s delay? Seriously? Then take piece of paper, pencil and calculator and calculate average DPS for few most common weapon setups, then calculate amount of hp required to survive 5 seconds and when you see teammate below that amount just apply revive. Simple as that.”
— No real comment here. Revive is a waste of a slot to me, to be honest.
“Since the beginning of time, playing support class required brain. No much, but more than DPS or tank. That’s why support classes are least favourite pick in most games: because you’re supposed to be a team player, not badass who can solo everything. If you don’t understand that, then problem lies not with game, but with you.”
- Again, you are completely missing the point. The last several patches have nerfed supports and/or buffed raiders (through missiles). I have never said - and I challenge you to find it, Mr. Ad Hominem, that supports should equal or exceed raiders. I simply stated that I felt the additive qualities of the last few patches WHEN TAKEN AS A WHOLE have nerfed supports too much.
Again, thank you, please drive through. And since you’ve stated in at least one forum post that you do not really play this game “anymore,” please feel free to go comment on the mechanics of games you play and/or understand.
