    Wait. No perks for yellow items? There's one I know of. TS HP+Duration. Pretty damn good!
    Other than that, tell me, what sort of perks would you like to see on OB or nitro? Nitro effect+CD would be nice, but OB? Nah. You cannot simple add a duration+CD perk for OB because that would break the item. Again. Frost? What would you add?
    I *think* TB has a perk, but not sure. Probably not.

    Since fixers can add a invincibility shield when healing. I would like a CHANCE to create a invincibility shield.. or maybe repair some health.. if reapers and fixers and repair themselves speeders should be able to aswell.. so an nitro or overboost that either heals or protects you.

    Yeah telsa bolt has increased projectile speed or something... the shield also has a perk.. but still it breaks easily.. and leave you vulnerable once broke.

    Speeders get some of the best HP and/or sustain in the game. Also, they are hyper agile and, UNLIKE healer classes in the game, have very small hitboxes. Repair bolts have (relatively)insane cooldowns and cannot be applied to yourself. Fixers and reapers also suffer from super low base HP.
    Again, most of fixer's and reaper's items with the exception of duct tape and box(which nobody uses btw) have reduced or no effects on the healer themselves.

    Speeders may be ignored to an extent and may need a couple of buffs, but imho healing is off the table.

    Not talking about a green perk that is constant.. that's what I emphasized "chance" a chance for a heal or protection. Speeders got grouped in with enforcers for the telsa shield nerf.. if enforcers didnt use double shields that stun wouldn't exist..

    Nah, that stun was needed and we both know it, we're both from the Blacktail era where TS stun OB was basically a super cheese meta. Opponent breaks TS, gets stunned for 13 seconds. Unstunned, TS is out of cooldown, rinse and repeat. That was super unhealthy, and it was NOT ONLY the enforcers that brought this on. The most recent supernerf to TS was definitely due to the double TS meta, however.

    Well, the initial idea to counter those "monoculture" setups, which also cause some balancing issues, was to limit the slots, e.g. only allow one torpedo or one Tesla Bolt. However, I have a better idea:
    Loading additional items of the same type (e.g. torpedoes, mortars, tesla bolts, shields, bandages etc.) will reduce their overall effectiveness. This should be a small reduction with two items and a larger reduction with three items and so on.

    I disagree...Red items are the toughest to build of all available items. There are 20 Red but only 6 yellows, so simple proportions state it'll take longer to find the item duplicates of the weapons you want, 3x harder in fact. With the extra heavy weighting of Yellow and Green items in Guild raffles and Epic Containers, you also get more perks and pieces for yellows (and greens), and Green Perks in Events are vastly over-weighted.

    This comes from a Shooter with 20 months of experience who still can't fill out 5 T5E weapons, while I can almost build two T5E Tesla Shields, a T5E Nitro, and have thrown away more Epic Frost items than I can count. OB remains the only Yellow I've had trouble getting....a single one to date. I have yet to receive a Legendary perk for any of the weapons I use... while I have a Frost and a couple Green perks, the few Red perks are for weapons I almost never use.

    In other words, the grass is not greener.

    For me the perfect TB perk would be projectile speed plus like a 10% chance that doesn't break with a shot but that's probably OP. Also OP but perfect for me would be a perk that neutralized mines for like 5/10 seconds. If I could shoot a bolt and then know I could follow it safely I would have less hate for mine spammers. I'd settle for duration + speed or something with extra hp like the turbo event perk.

    i cant use the bolster armor. placing it in the slot is ok, entering a match reverts it.

    any ideas?

    I agree. Not enough status for different types of players to enjoy.

    As a speeder and defender main, defenders should also enjoy at least all of the teal items in 1 slot. A defender should be able to use defense wall and defense aura. Both items are named after defender ship. M

    Please honor defenders a hybrid slot of 2 teal color instead of just 1 for all the times they have been neglected and abused for having a fatter ass than anyone else.

    Doing that would mean a Defender would be buffed by adding 1 more blue slot point, and thus the ability to strap on 2 Big Shields, or requiring them to choose between Big Shield and a Teal item, which means no Teal item.
