    I think time will tell us if speeder is still OP or if It became balanced, I'm guessing speeder is balanced, fixer could use some buff and Defender is dying in pain. :D

    Well, if the NML players are smart enough, they'll just do a Diet Coke and tank up with double small shields.

    Diet coke is not smart he is a troll he uses troll setup just to have fun.
    Use double small and shield and have speed lower than defender with significantly slow speed and less weapon you think that's a smart idea?

    Lemme get this right. You think that nerfing big shield and reversing all the nerfs of 2.8 will do ANYTHING?

    It won't, speeders adapt too fast for nerfs to work. Any more "adjustments" will only prove to be counterproductive xD.

    I don't like talking on nerf threads, I'm outta here.

    Dude just read the post again I explained it clearly why it would be effective as it will stop the main routine of speeders i.e hit stun and repeat and you don't like talking on nerf thread?
    Then why do I see you on every sniper nerf thread
    Edit:it is also a buff thread to all the other boats

    Neither nerf has made ex canon or tesla bolt unusable?
    Then why is there only 10 speeders in top 50 ( current top 50) out of which only 6 are using tesla bolt and 5 are using excanon and only 3 speeders are using the old excanon and tesla bolt setup.
    ( These stats are real as these player have been using same setup since update landed)

    And do elaborate how the hit registration has increased?
    And enfocer has increased in no to 20 out of top 50 which is huge that is solely because the tesla bolt which used to take down Thier tesla shield down is dead.
    Speeder could have easily shifted to shooter as enforcer requires them to build another op tesla shield and find another 2 one slot weapons but they didn't because enforcer is the best boat in the bay now because of its op double shield setup.
    A lot of shooters are also shifting to enforcer as Thier no has decreased to 13

    Tesla bolt is is still as good as it gets, But now like other Buzz kill weapons ie railgun and tesla shield. It becomes progressively good and Best at T5 while unusable Upto T3

    Iwould even say Rare tesla shield is worst item compared to epic, Which affects F2P enforcer a lot. Atleast there isn't a huge gap between Epic and rare stun

    Guys, i dont think most of players playing speeder because it's op or don't playing defender because it's weak. Speeder has its own adrenaline because of speed and getting risks. Most people love that instead of slow play style of defender's. You can't destroy something just because it is loved.
    And also i wanna say exp and bolt weren't get nerfed because of popularity, both of them was too strong and deserved it.

    It's just not worth arguing about any of this when our sample size is 50 players... I'll wait for the devs to release item statistics or give us the data to analyze for ourselves.

    I'm a ftp speeder myself but this idea is the single most dumbest idea I've read in this forum ever.

    I'm confused by your word "chain". One shot follows another, yeah? Aren't all shots "chained"? Are you referring to a stun-lock situation here?

    If you want a p2w nerf, remove rarities altogether

    You ended up getting bashed by speeders and non-speeders both. I have to admit you do have an art of creating a thread

    This is a great idea! That is If you want this game to die down really quickly, what do u think will happen if P2P players stop buying because They’re purchase gets nerf? There is a reason why they’re OP, they are willing to put some cash and - the reward is OP’ ness but it also support this games continued update and overall run time. You wanna continue being competitive? Put some money and improve your skill > than P2P.

    My 2 cents.

    As a fixer only player, I don’t mind anything that reduces a speeder’s ability to camp around me and stun/shoot me. I am unable to run Big Shield and turbo so I choose to run standard and turbo which lowers my hp. I can see both sides to the topic and don’t have a really strong opinion since my personal knowledge of the workings of a speeder are not familiar to me. But I enjoy reading the discussion. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    A easier solution would be to decrease the defense points of mk6/7 speeders. Mk5/4/3/2/1 speeders are underpowered right now because of the last update with the Tesla bolt cooldown time increase.
