    So what exactly is the point of defenders existence anymore now that Guardian is a thing?

    Guardian is really OP with Two Defense walls . i try to break them with two exp cannon shots but didn't break . and when there was no defense wall exp cannons were taking time to cool down . defender have no defense just lots of HP .

    Defender has 3 weapon slots, guardian only has 2 so they are different animals.
    Guardian is also better at team support than the defender with the new teal items like defence wall.

    It’s still an overall better ship to use though

    The defender is tankier in terms of role at least, however, I think that DW is OP right now. It's outrageously strong and makes up and then some for the Guardian's non-tanky nature... Yeah, I guess this raises some hard-to-answer questions about the defender's role... again.

    The defender's role is to be fat and poke people with Gatling guns. Simple.

    I still think defender should have some base defense that increases with each level upgrade

    YES! The defender is supposed to be a tank, but it can't use either of the teal items that would allow it to be tanky. Hmmm...

    Nah. But I do think some of the teal items need switched around. Defense aura should be a 2 slot item and bolster armour should only be a 1 slot. This would actually help defender tank more hits. I think the shield wall would be slightly too strong on defender.

    Dude bolster sucks as a 2 slot item. It’s basically a defense aura you can use on yourself.

    Bolster is horrible. I have a legendary bolster armour. Maxed perks. Maxed training. U die quickly relying on it. 6 second in usage time. 14 seconds cool down. Would be better as a 1 slot item.

    And... no double wall isn't op. A yellow boat can still torch a guardian pretty easily 1vs1. Speeders give guardians fits. Guardian are meant to block shots against mortar bearing shooters. Yes that might seem lame. But that is the role of the double wall. Don't like your shot being blocked. Use a torpedo or reposition and flank.

    Seriously. This would be such a good change for Defender. Which means they definitely won't do it. Because Defender has to be literally the worst at everything except HP pool.

    Developers will never fix defender. The bias they have regarding this boat...is wild. It's the only boat they will never fix

    You mean the annoying little shits who're almost impossible to kill unless you're ALSO a yellow boat?
