Topic: Eredan Arena / Card Impressions: Asajiro the Vagabond

IGN: Futureracer
Level 1: Just about any level one with a one-die ability is good, and Asajiro is one of them.

Level 2: He’s basically a level 3 Chidori at level 2. The ability to buff AND deal damage all at same time is awesome. That’s why I love Ijin Shisei.

Level 3: He’s a powerhouse at every level but MAN is he strong here. Easily the most powerful non-Nehant/EX/Pirate hero. He’s crazy versatile and every ability gives him a benefit while dealing damage. Don’t even get me started if he’s fighting a marauder.

Favorite combo: RRRBBB

Rating: 4/5

Reason for rating: The only reason I didn’t give him 5/5 is that there are heroes that do the damage + bonus thing better than Asajiro, but not outside EX/Nehants/Pirates. He’s the poor man’s Ijin Shisei or Corc, but that poor man is still a kung fu super hobo.

Maybe it’s because I remember the heat ray before its major accuracy and damage nerf, but I don’t really feel like it’s that OP.

Heat ray was/is overpowered beyond anything in the game, even the flamethrower. Sure, the flamethrower does more damage, and a few other weapons do more damage too. Doesn’t mean it isn’t a lock-on sniper rifle put on a class who is supposed to be good at close range.

Decrease the range but increase the burning speed, that’s a good solution.

The flamethrower already kills everything in two seconds, making it kill people in one second isn’t the way to nerf it. It already has damage that would be overpowered for a melee weapon. Honestly, if you can’t kill someone with the current flamethrower, no amount of buffs is going to help your crutch class net you a couple kills.

If you mean the heat ray, it should be less damage AND range. They already have a doped saber on steroids, they don’t need a submachine gun on two doses of steroids.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / OP Firebat

I’m glad yet another person agrees with me. Blazer makes classes like scout and assassin look like a joke. He does more dps at mid range then they do at melee while packing more health, an extremely powerful team buff, and a napalm bomb that tears through turrets and locks down control points. Don’t even get me started on how absurdly overpowered the heat ray is either.

Does that mean you agree with me or find me funny? I would love for FRG to comment on why blazer gets an instagib weapon on top of all its other strengths.

I understand what you are saying, and I get that blazer is a counter to scout. That’s cool. Nothing wrong with them countering scout. The problem is that on top of having the niche of countering scout and assassin with close range damage, the blazer has good long range damage, an extremely powerful team buff, and will win both 1v1 and team fights. Every other class is geared to one or the other (tech, shocker, gunner, and tank are all about assaulting or defending CPs in big fights while scouts, assassins, and gunners about taing down plaers one at a time. Blazer is very good at both.). There’s no reason to pick an assassin or scout over a blazer because blazers are better in every aspet except moving fast.

Blazer does more Dps at closerange

Thanks for agreeing with me Josh. Doesn’t it seem odd to you at all that blazer does more close range damage when he packs team buffs and more health though?

Let me make it simple for you newbies. Blazer is the anti class, It counters every class in the game and is used to kill any class. (that sounds op right?)

An all-around class isn’t overpowered. However, the blazer isn’t somewhat good at everything, he’s almost the best at everything (except health). The combination of having the best close to mid range damage and good long range damage along with a powerful buff to allies makes him great in every situation. Defending a point? Radiance will buff your team’s suppressors and you can pump out AoE damage with your flamethrower. Attacking a point? Activate radiance and your team can roll on through the enemies because your team does 30% more damage. Ganking? Your flamethrower kills most classes before they can react.

Tech can’t be burnt

Really? I could have sworn that the flamethrower did damage to tech. What do I know though?
shocker has the stun, scout has the smg, blaster has the rockets, tank has the tankieness, gunner has the longrange AR,

Yeah, those work on every class. What’s your point?
assassin has the closerange damage.

1/10, learn to not be so obvious when you troll.

Futureracer, Pro scouts can take out a blazer pretty easy, the flamethrower is annoying but if you play it smart you should take them out pretty handily. Blazers are usally dumasses who try to flamethrower you when you’re too far away.

Most people that play blazer are bad so blazer isn’t overpowered. Amazing logic. Also, how does a pro scout go about killing a blazer? Obviously the saber is out of the question, and the submachine gun does less damage and is shorter range than the heat ray. Before you try to answer, “grab four other guys to gang on him” and “switch to gunner” aren’t valid answers.

Edit: If you say haze bombs, the blazer can just try and use flamethrower until they wear off in two seconds.

The flamethrower is annoying as hell i admit that. But i can easily take out any blazer from long range. The heatray target lock could use a tweak to make it less accurate. The blazers only real problem is the heatrays range and accuracy. If FRG could make it less accurate or make its range shorter that would be nice. (or make heatray do less damage per meter)

Any class can be taken out at long range. What’s your point? On top of that, the blazer can just kill you right back with the heat ray.

Also, if a class is doing so much damage at medium range that the only way they can be killed is at extremely long range by the extreme long range specialist, they aren’t balanced. They’re overpowered beyond belief.

Gunner is balanced though. He’s a specialist. He has the upside of having the longest range in the game, but he will get killed by pretty much anyone at close range. If a scout/assasin/gunner/blazer sneaks up on him he’s toast.

Blazer on the other hand has no weakness. He feels like he was meant to be the all-around class but he’s only somewhat worse than the specialists. The only person who has better range than him is gunner, but he’s still the best at close combat. The shocker can support teammates better, but radiance guarantees a victory in a big battle. There’s no reason to pick scout or assassin over him. The problem isn’t that he’s easy, it’s that he’s easy on top of having the best abilities and weapons along with decent stats.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / The blazer is stupidly overpowered

Hello forums. You may recognize me as the scout at the top of the charts on most of your games. After having not played for a while, I’ve been playing for the last few days, and the blazer has made most classes, especially the scout and assassin, completely redundant. I shall compare the blazer to the scout, because that is what I am most familiar with.

The only advantage the scout has over the blazer is speed. Having played much of both, the jetpacks are essentially the same. The blazer’s is enough to fly just onto most platforms, while the scouts is enough to get a couple more feet over them. The blazer has superior health to the scout. Overall, their stats are pretty balanced.

The blazer has much better abilities, however. Turbo boost is not a bad skill, but it is very situational, has a long cooldown, and can send you flying past your intended area if you’re in the air. Meanwhile, radiate is easily in the running for best abilities in the game. A team without a blazer will always lose big fights to a team with one unless a massive skill gap is present. It’s essentially an I Win button for grabbing CPs. Neither scout’s flying kick nor blazer’s spectral optics are particularly good. One’s a generic send you flying move on a class that already flies well enough and the other is assassin/gunner destroyer that’s good only sometimes. Haze bomb is good against most classes, but still situtaional since a decent blazer or blaster can still kill you after getting hit by one. Blaze bomb is not only a good grenade but no suppressor is going to live as long as it’s getting used.

Finally, the weapons. This is where things go from unbalanced to stupid. The submachine gun has decent range and medium damage. It’s essentially the all around weapon for hitting things that run from your sword. The flamethrower is the holy grail of weapons. Its range is limited, but the damage it deals is obscene. I know somebody is going to come in here and say the downside is the range, but it does far more damage than any of the melee weapons in the game. Let my doped saber kill people in two hits and have a 10 yard range and we can talk. Speaking of the doped saber, it’s the reason I play scout. Fun weapon that lets you dash about the map. It’s what the scout is about. The heat ray doesn’t have the dash. That’s the only thing worse about it than the doped saber. Not only is it better than the doped saber in every way, it’s better than the submachine gun. Better range and damage. It will kill you halfway across the map as fast as a minigun will across a room.

TL;DR There is absolutely no reason to play scout over blazer except speed. The blazer isn’t a jack of all trades, but a master of everything. He brings an amazing buff, the game’s best damage, an above average health pool, average speed, and can shut down assassins and techs without problems.
