I need to clarify a few things
1) I always tested any mod, including FBP, and DBP will follow
2) I have my idea of an indea rework that could fix a lot of issues related to axis AT armor department BUT I WILL judge changes as I see and test them, evaluate them and eventually give a positive feedback on those as they actually improve balance
"Now you get a patch that reduces some of the durability (with Vet), but not the important bits (the health bonus at Vet2 is still there), and increases the DPS."
I miss the improved dps, you reduced moving accuracy and increased scatter, and less than a second of reload difference should mean improved dps ?
Nah you just straight up nerfed it.
Further add that okw one will still cost 25 more fuel apparently...and only got nerfs because is "the best nondoc vehicle" (you know how much people laughed at this ?)
Regardless of testing, which won't lack, nobody see anything good coming from this change.
A good start would be: choose an intended role.
It would be great if panther gained much more dps, in both high accuracy (and moving accuracy) and rof, but gave up range, penetration and armor, for an anti medium and flanker/tank hunter role, while heavies could be countered by su86-like stug/jpn4..but that's one of the options.
I fully agree. I'd love if Panther had armor and health of a T34/76.
But about 20% of the range, but fired around 20-30x shots per second at 100% accuracy while moving
and did 1000 pen, 1000 dmg, and shots could go through and/or ricochet amongs allie vehicles.
Something like a Pool trick shot so that a single shot could destroy 10 to 20 allied vehicles in
a single shot.
Of course, fuel and popcap per Panther would have be reduced accordingly, say, to that of a T70.
But, I feel that it would be in a good place then. Not too op. Balanced just right. 200 manpower, 70
fuel is about right for a Panther. And 8 pop. Also it needs it's AI buffed considerably.
Please do so, Relic, or all the COH players will uninstall immediately.
Thank you, humbly, for considering this truly
Also, as vet bonuses the ROF (rate of fire) and hit and Pen (Penetration) should all increase, say to +50% +100% +150% +200% +250%(of 100%)(while moving)
I really enjoy Panthers, and this would truly improve on my appreciation of the game and would impact
if me and my friends purchase future DLC for this game, and continue to support RELIC in their future
endeavors. Thank you.
PS: The shots from the Panther should do HE like the Sturmtiger. Because German technology is superior
and the game should reflect that.
PS2 : Relic should stop trying to nerf Axis units to pacify the Allied Hordes.
Everyone knows Allied is easy mode. It is time for Axis to receive some well-deserved love.
If there is no historical accuracy, where is the love? Where is the point?
