Pointing to other op careers solves no issues, ultimately everything should be in line with it’s own niches etc, fingerpointing and calling people out for playing X or Y doesn’t progress the discussion and only delays any progress by bickering over who gets to do how much damage - the debate has been about Kruber, problems with other classes are best off debated in relevant topics - that leaves more space for players to actually have progressive conversation where people can say ‘‘Okay this is rather strong, if you had to nerf something do it here but for the love of god don’t touch X/Y since it feels like a core thing.’’
Instead we have people pointing fingers left and right, arguing and all you get is a list of complaints, a lot of angry people and what appears to be a balancing team that goes ‘‘Eh if you’re gonna throw this much fuss and you’re sure about this whole list of changes, let’s see where this goes…’’ rather than good pros cons etc.
Ultimately it all beats comments like ‘‘gosh you suck go back to champion’’ ‘‘git gud’’ ‘‘don’t listen to X because they’re trash’’ that’s not very civil and doesn’t aid discussion in any manner, form or way. Instead it derails a topic.
TL;DR Tired of the kruber threads pointing at other classes to preserve something ridiculously strong even with his weaknesses, now that it was nerfed consider asking for some weaknesses to be compensated instead while waiting for the balance team to re-assess.
In my opinion Kruber is already one of the best snipers to kill Chaos Warriors from a distance using no abilities whatsoever, and can stand to sacrifice some things for this - but the last patch only just happens and plenty of people seem to agree that the nerf was a bit too harsh to put it lightly.
I’m personally in agreement with that as he can use some quality of life changes in return now such as getting rid of the silly ducking animation on his ult and fixing the FOV/overlay bug.
The FOV decrease is only making a lot of pug Kruber players tunnelvision more. There’s also a REALLY annoying reload animation that takes place when you trigger your ability and are already aiming down. If this is a communication towards the player it’s redundant, especially with the FOV change and the screen filter.
Some of Krubers melee weapons desperately need a second balance pass too in order to ensure viable variety. I disagree with letting him mow down several CW’s with bodyshots during his ulti however and would rather see some seconds shaved off his cooldown. I’m okay with a lot he stands for but with him being tailored towards a dude that does solid bodyshot damage in clutch situations I feel his main reward should stay with the headshots.
