Topic: Ballistic / Why so much hate towards Grenadier and Marksman.

I’ve now changed to US servers. It’s far better if we talk about cheaters and polite people. But the con: 50% of the players are marksmen! I don’t blame the players, they’re just smart enough to know it’s the most efficient class, or honest and clever enough to don’t cheat. Marksmen are the most powerful class due to their natural concept of being accurate more high damage, range and decent stats. In fact, fast weapons more long range aim make the class king, cause the others don’t have that. I think a nerf on them should be priority. I agree, however, that tanks are actually too hard to kill and grenade launcher is not as powerful as it could be, (many of my classes have T1 sidearm, so I have a grenade spammer with a T1 pistol for close combat situations, ty) without deadly force grenadiers are useless as conscient players and are really grenade spammers, just that.

Well, I’m playing with all classes now (they’re all beyond lv. 15) and I’m mixing so many different playstyles – and facing so many cheaters – that I can’t make too much analysis between atm. Please devs, make something about the cheaters on the game.

Topic: Ballistic / Marksman or Wraith

Wraiths are the kings of the first level section and efficient – long range at most – killers at second level section. Marksman is decent at first level section (I can’t analyse with more details, I’ve always been just few matches at lower levels sections) and the absolute king of 16+ level section in middle range, very good at long range – being the best to counter Wraiths – for many being the top class overall, with very high accuracy, damage and range.

Main_Gi, which skills are these? You want to permanently ban Tanks of play, that’s it? Why don’t you suggest simply the extermination of tanks in the game just after them being severely nerfed? Highlights to “all knife kills give 5% damage”. KNIFE kills? By the most slow unit in the game? LOL

I have to say, however, that snipers could get a slight nerf on their damage. The massive HP reduction of all classes did well to them twice: make them less fragile in comparison to others and make their weapons more deadly. A one-hit-kill on a tank isn’t really how it must work.

Great! The game is updated on a impressive fast pace, thank you devs!!

Guys complaining about grenadier and tank… oh my… tank lost his HP advantage in the last update and is no longer “OP”. Grenadier got buffs in his machine pistols. Say something about marksman, or prices of T4, if you want to be considered. Otherwise, just qq.

I don’t know what devs wanted with this update, really don’t make sense just 7.5K for a class. They wanted regular players to have all the classes, but 25K for a weapon is too much. I agree with more expensive classes and cheaper weapons.

Topic: Ballistic / Incredibly OP wraiths.

Changing the main discussion for a while, sorry about that, but what’s the advantage of tanks now? Since ninjas got a speed buff and are fast as hell, if you compare the movement speed of the two, is huge. HP now is pretty equalised between classes, you can be down using a tank against a couple good shots from any class. So, now, what’s the point of having a tank? Looks like devs make a class attractive and take out its main power, make another one attractive, to after make it weak again… that way we feel tepted to have all classes =P

Topic: Ballistic / Good Times......

Wraiths well played are a painful kick to play against, specially with some good vanguards, marksmen or tanks engaging on close and middle distance and ending up protecting them somehow. As I’ve said, it’s a different-from-all class, and yes can be very annoying. My point is: snipers are NOT a new concept in shooter games, and they’ll probably be present in any shooter game with modern tematic. I’ll take me as an example: they were my second class, but after buying I just started to see that they’re not a magic killing class, you’ve to aim properly, and shoot. People don’t stand still for you to shoot! So, man, you have to aim and shoot fast, having few chances to do it – in many occasions, just one – before being detected and depleted from your short HP. Your invisibility doesn’t help much against a fairly experienced player and you have to change your position after each kill. In middle range, you have large disadvantage, unless you’re a monster, cold blooded guy who can shoot without aim 2,3 guys one after another fast enough to take very few or no shot at this time. Also, laggy computers (like mine) are an extreme disadvantage to sniping people. So, iScavenger, that’s a decision to make. Since you can’t simply avoid to play against them, make a Wraith, so you can feel being one of them, or stop playing. But stopping playing Ballistic won’t attenuate your pain: stop playing shooter games at all.

PS sorry for the big text. I always start threads to be short and end up making text blocks =/

Topic: Ballistic / Incredibly OP wraiths.

Wraith is not a problem. It’s a DIFFERENT class. Its style is to kill from afar and avoid close combat. Even at medium distance Wraith has disadvantages, being the one with lowest health and useless primary ability. Its focus is on DAMAGE. Anyone can kill a Wraith easily: a tank / berserker / vanguard at close range, a marksman at middle range, a shadow with a couple shots, a single grenade has enough power to kill him two times. When you get killed by a sniper, just use your brain and go after him after seeing the killcam. If he’s protected by the team, you’ll have problems, at the same way you would encounter problems against any class with a good team protecting each other. This class can’t be nerfed, or it will lose it’s only great point, the damage. The HP, speed and melee are already the worst of the game. His weapoons generally don’t have close range aim, specially for those who bought the Interdiction before the update and don’t want to spend 25 K on a second T4 wapon. Even the fire rate sucks. Wraith can just allow two possibilities: keep like that or take them out of Ballistic. Ok, I vote for a third option: give them close range aims (I know this probably won’t happen but I would never buy Interdiction if I knew this damn update coming). Classes are more balanced now, but if I would vote the weakest class after Vanguard, would still be Wraith.

Topic: Ballistic / Incredibly OP wraiths.

Answering to above: I have almost all classes, 4 them in the top tier. I’m not a Wraith dependant, but just know how the Wraith works. If you are frustrated with it being OP for you just cause you don’t know how to counter them, you could buy one and try it… Wraith it’s a free content of the game, with all other existing classes as well. As you already know, they’re a lot cheaper in this version.

Ok Abdullax, they’re cheaters not hackers. I’ve seen people trying to mitigate the name and calling them glitchers, buggers etc. For me, a cheater is a cheater no matter the kind of advantage it gets. And yes the ping got much higher than the previous update. I don’t know really what’s the meaning of cheaters, making a waste of time for anyone is playing for fun. The game is a competition after all. Cheaters must be punished, I say. I don’t think that’s easy, but they really should get some big penalty for doing that, specially the ones we can’t figure out that are cheating, and get lots of benefits before caught.

This update added at least 2 P2W features to the game (special ammo special armor), but this is the unavoidable way of a game that is already very popular, the next step is to make money for devs, and P2W is apparently the best money squeezer for games. The cheaper classes also adds a necessity of more credit spending for players, since the goal of the player with a new class is to put a T4 weapon on them, and these weapons now are stupidly expensive, ballistic points will be more tempting. I don’t find this good or bad, is the way the capitalism goes and, my oppinion won’t do any difference, since I’ve seen many good games turned into crap and is not the case of this one. Yet. And I hope it remains like that.

As good points, I can tell about the Wraith’s power kept, despite some players complains, since the Wraith’s ONLY advantage is the damage output, you guys did it well. Or didn’t do anything, but the HP nerf of everyone counted as a buff for Wraiths. Whatever you guys did, is good.

Another good things are the grenadier’s antispam cooldown and the MP buff.

Bad, really BAD thing: hackers are everywhere!!! I don’t know in other servers but in Brazil there are crap ton of cheaters that apparently tooki advantage of the new update’s instability to screw with the game. Please devs take a SEVERE attitude on them. Cheaters are bad for game community AND you, so, there’s no reason to allow them to keep unfair advantages on the battlefield. If you guys ban them 1,2,3 times, they will eventually stop. Right now I saw a player called “souldado” running like a lighting bolt.

Don’t try to nerf them, it’s hard to be totally able to ohko someone with a footshot.. oh wait.

I would say more: silly noob guys, Wraith is the class who needs a BUFF not a nerf. At the middle game they appear to be very powerful but in 21-30 levels they’re still fragile, competing with T4 weapons (powerful enough to match their snipers), slow and with a useless primary ability. Find another thing to cry over.

Topic: Ballistic / Ballistic Road Map [UPDATED 10/6/14]

The game is frequently updated, very good! + 1 devs. The nerf on tank’s HP is great as well.

Just two things: no nerf on marksman? Oh that’s bad.

Another thing: between medic, engineer and the bow girl I pick… none! They’re weak ideas as shooter classes! I can’t imagine a girl with a bow in the middle of all the heavy fire; a medic is just a support class that will decide matches without using too much skill, but just healing and hiding; an engineer will just spam gadgets around instead shooting people himself! No, no! Make a class with a brand new cool ability but without lose the focus on the bang-bang! Or if you guys keep one of these classes, at least avoid it to be a hit-and-run class like grenadier ;)

Oh Jeez… c’mon I’m shooting vanguards with the Interdiction and not getting the kill many times. Also, just the Wonderdome and Corr. Park maps are friend of Wraiths, giving them some decent places to be when shooting. You will HAVE to go middle/ close range sometime. Also we’ve to consider that the enemy is not stupid and will find you easily after your shot, dying or not. Wraith STILL needs a BUFF.

Hu..? Actually I’ve explained myself decently, at least other people understood. My points brought people to the current discussion. However, you can feel free to open another thread using better words.

About the discussion above, is clear that ANYONE can give his/her oppinions about the game, his/her ideas and suggestions to improve it. Judging hardly someone by the level is, beyond impolite, to demand a exclusivity that does not exist. A T3 player can give solid oppinions about the game. Just my 2 cents.

THE ONLY thing about Wraith that needs to be changed is the hipfire! Just decrease their stupid hipfire accuracy so they have to switch to pistol at close range. Then they can go around quick-scoping instant kills all they want.

It’s not an easy task, since its weapons don’t have hipfire aim. Also, 1 shot and he’s dead. Wraith has an useless primary ability and is slow as hell. You’re probably not a Wraith user.

For the ones who complain about being killed from far by a sniper, I know it’s frustrating and stuff, but that’s the main ability of snipers, since they are real bad at close range. Of course they still can 1 shot from close range but it’s not that easy, really. And I repeat, he takes any shot from ANY class, and is gone.

About tanks, they seems pretty resilient to me, drawing with berserkers as kings of close range. Ninjas can be called the kings of stealth and marksmen, the kings of OP. =)

Nope. The iron sights are bad too, they don’t show you the exact center of your screen (it’s kind of like Savage, where it’s just a circle)

I see now, thanks. But, even without the quick scope ability, I thought it could be good due to the iron sights.

Wraith’s weapons aren’t slow… you could fire the Interdiction once every 0.75 or so seconds. All of these are instakills.
Even the Drone is an instakill. In my opinion, the Wraith is overpowered; he used to be a two-shot kill.

His primary ability isn’t very strong, I’ll admit… but neither is the Berserker’s.

In my opinion: Buff up Wraith’s firerate, make him a two-shot-kill (to the body), and give him a better primary ability:
A; Better cloaking
B; More damage when charging up scope

C; Passive resistance; maybe to sniper bullets?


I believe Marksman weapons got a fire rate nerf. It didn’t do much, considering the problem was that the Bandit and Marauder had too high headshot damage.

I haven’t reach the interdiction weapon yet; but Wraith is too dependant on that weapon and I do not find this right. Drone actually is really weak in 21+ ambience, often failed to shot kill and consequently giving enough time to the enemy kill the author of the first shot 5 times before a new shot of it can happen. The aim out after each shot just makes it more difficult.

About your suggestions about Wraith, they’re fair enough. One shot kill can be very annoying when caugh all the time, so a 2 shot kill would be more fair, but JUST with increased fire rate, more cloaking. Hey where we got? Wraiths need a nerf… so we’re back to my point, just made a bigger curve. Is true that in this way good and lucky players can escape from the second and mortal shot from Wraiths, with a small chance of sucess. So it’s a better, more detailed solution to the Wraith.

Marksmen are still deadly, but that huge numbers that I’ve seen before are rarer now. Its weapons must still be nerfed, you can’t mix so high fire rate, range and power in a stat balanced class like marksman.
