After testing the balance of Tier 4 Hunters, I think a few minor changes are in order:
Tone down the DPS of the Mininuke. Right now it’ll do more than Cabot’s Railcannon and it’s infinitely easier to hit. Really not a good thing.
Jetpack Booster…Not quite sure what to say here, but flinging your team 300m in front of you just isn’t good. The added distance needs to go. No way to work around this whatsoever. A team can stay right on your heels using this. No other comp can emulate this effect. It’s simply impossible. Giving a Hunter extra boosts is extremely powerful in and of itself, there’s no need to give them extra distance AND speed on top of that.
Torvald’s mortars. Stand still for a second, and they’ll melt you. This effectively renders it impossible to focus anyone without taking a lot of damage. I play a lot of Cabot, and Torvald on his own will do higher damage than Parnell and I giving a Monster everything we have. He’ll do it from long range, and he won’t let you attack anyone. Not sure how to fix this, but I’m sure you can come up with something.
Spore Launcher is too spammy. For such a powerful ability, it should have to be used tactically. There is absolutely no reason Slim should be able to put one down every two seconds.
Daisy. Cuteness OP. Plz nerf.
That’s all. I say all this as an equal Hunter and a Monster, plenty of time in both roles, and after fighting a superb premade today I had to make this. They beat me twice…Once because I got cocky as per usual and lost all my health Stage One…And once in a fair, long drawn out game. Point being: Apart from my stage one defeat, they fought me five times. Three of those five times, they only used Tier 1-3 Hunters. I won every single one of these games, to be honest it wasn’t even a challenge that much. They played two games with Tier 4 Hunters and I lost both. Not by a lot- pretty close games- but I lost them nonetheless. There is no reason Tier 4 power should make up for Hunter incompetence.
Thoughts, ideas? Agree, disagree? I’d love to hear it.
I’d also like to hear dev input, if they would be so inclined.
