Elite Character Request/Suggestion for the developers?


#1

Ok so this has been floating around my mind now for like a month, but with the release of T4 now i think its even more needed, obvcourse this is just my opinion but i will give you a detailed view on what small changes
i think are needed and why, would love feedback aswell as i only play with a small group on xbox live and they like the idea but i know sometimes the masses can disagree… anyway lets get on with it :smile:

VAL ELITE CHANGE - Medgun capacity changed to Healing Rate +10%. Now I know val has had a buff and boy has that made a difference, but i don’t feel the small capacity increase really does anything and it seems like a real waste, where as i feel the healing rate once you get her elite would be really really useful in a fight and make elite val a very viable medic choice.

MAGGIE ELITE CHANGE - Daisys health +10% changed to her reviving speed +10%. This one i believe to be a no brainer as the extra helath on daisy does not really help at all i don’t feel, and again if she could revive that little bit faster in a fight when milliseconds count, i think this would be great.

MARKOV ELITE CHANGE - Lightning Gun Range+10% to Damage +10% to bring markov in line with the other assaults as i don’t feel he is longer a viable assault since the release of torvald and buffing of hyde, and parnells just a beast really so maybe the extra range could just be on the lightning gun by default?

HYDE ELITE CHANGE - Minigun Accuracy +10% for damage +10%, I think this one is a no brainer personally but i would like to know if anyone disagree’s with this one :stuck_out_tongue:

Thats just what i’ve been chatting to some friends about and thought i may aswell post it on the forums to see what people think and it would be great to hear developer feedback on these also.

I main Val, and I tend to find that the tier 3 capacity buff is useful for topping off a really low-health hunter. I think her heal rate is fine as it is.


#3

the capacity does not help i have tested it in private matches with friends, it seriously lasts like an extra half second or something its not really usefull in a fight, faster healing would be, compared to caira vals healing power just isn’t the same, either that or her healing burst should recharge slightly faster i think


#4

They’re testing a special heal burst that heals her more. Based on my math, 10% of 12 seconds is 1.2 seconds. While this seems small, it’s still pretty major considering how quick of a game Evolve is. What Val lacks in healing power she makes up for in diverse utility- I tend to think of her as almost a second support character, and after the buff I find her healgun to be pretty damn awesome. Healing rate +10% would be pretty ridiculous/op.


#5

well, shes not meant to be a second support, shes meant to be a medic, and her healing power really lacks at times compared to caira, most people will tell you the same, after a game with caira i can get like 18000 points healed quite consistantly, with VAL i’m lucky if i hit 7500 and thats me using the medgun constantly and occasionally tranq the monster or snipe it but honestly shes supposed heal and although i like the buff, i think elite val should heal faster thats all, but your opinion is your own and i respect that.


#6

I get that Caira is the very best for healing, but I dunno, I guess she’s not as fun for me. I find that a lot of people underestimate the power of an experienced val- being constantly tranq’d and weakpointed (taking reload helps with the sniper), as well as a team in moderately good health. Yeah, your teammates have to take care of themselves more, but I kinda see it as trading some damage and strikes for a lot of hurt on the monster. I find myself running out of medgun more than I’d expect, even at tier 3.


#7

what about the other suggestions, assumingly you must agree as va was the only one you did not agree with?


#8

I can see Markov’s being pretty good (I think an overall damage buff for him could be in order, but I’ve always thought his strength lies in his reliability- thus the range mastery), a Daisy revive speed boost would probably be tricky to code but still interesting, and I can see the minigun going either way.

Nooooooooo! Val’s capacity is such crap now. Heal rate is perfect.
