Bring back the old damage model

Ecks Dee 3 months ago in All Platforms • updated by Yos 1 week ago 9

honestly the new damage model is just hitmark galore, stupidly unnalanced weapons, pistol spam. 

The old one would reward you for longshots, the MG08 being the only really unbalanced weapon. 

Now let me argue to why a stepback would be better (and I'll use arguments from gameplay perspective and realistic one, because honestly its a bad change all around)

(For those who do not know 


Gameplay wise : 

-The new one doesn't reward longrange shooting 

-The amount of unbalanced weapons we have now is astonishing 

-Hitmarkers with rifles 

-Bugged hitboxes (only sees head, gets hitmarker because arms blocked the shot) 


Realism wise : 

-Get shot in the foot continues on running (hitmarkers) 

-Pistol headshot doesn't kill on long distance 

-Damage models that make no sense


TLDR : the old damage model was better gameplay wise, was more realistic and less frustrating

100 % agree.


From the various problems the game had, they chose to remove something that was perfectly well and replace it by a buggy mess and the most frustrating possible mechanic, aka hitmarkin with a rifle at 10m while you get pistol spammed.


The ony thing to rework was indeed german mg.

For those who do not know, the old damage model was 1hk with rifle no matter the range (so more realistic as you would take a bullet to the legs and be out of the fight, and better gameplay wise as most weapons where more balanced, and would reward long range shooting) 

Pistols where 2hk no matter the range

MGs where 1hk for german ones, and 2hk for entente ones

Devs WHAT ARE YOU DOIN WITH VERDUN.

Please play your game from time to time and do realize that the lower playerbase is because you are non stop taking wrong decisions, dont optimize your game and are unable to fix the bugs (aka nice deletin on the mg thread showin you still not fixed a 3 years old problem).

JUST ADMIT MISTAKES WERE MADE AND GIVE BACK THE GAME MANY PEOPLE PLAYED.

Not even talking about the pistol plague the game is now

Something's wrong when so many rapid fire weapons kill in one so many times.
