View Full Version : Gears System Is Broken If You Aren't Reputation Three

This is my biggest concern with this game. Gear plays far to much of a roll in this game to allow a competitive environment in 4v4.

To start, I main Valkyrie. Prior to having Reputation 3, I was always doing good in Brawl and Duel with high winrates and K/D. Then I'd go into 4v4 and get smeared across the floor by everyone at Repuation 3. Eventually, I got to Reputation 3 and got full Heroic gear and suddenly my 4v4 scores went up, I was killing way more and dying way less if at all.

I had revenge almost every 1v1 fight, the first ten seconds of being outnumbered I had revenge, I could sprint faster than many people, I did more damage per hit in both revenge and no revenge, I took more damage, my stamina came back way faster, I ran out of stamina less often. Are you starting to see the problem?

Heroic gear provides way to much bonuses and deters a lot of people to not even play 4v4 because of this. And the next big problem is that getting reputation 3 isn't like a couple of hour process, its hours of play. Every time I use a hero that isn't reputation 3 in 4v4, I do significantly worse.

tl;dr - Gear alters stats way to much for a game that tries to emphasize skill. You are insanely handicapped without a Reputation Three hero in 4v4.

It is, and that's the reason I was strongly against items ever being added.

There was no need for it, beyond the slight pay to win cash cow opportunity for Ubisoft. Skill should've been the only factor that mattered.

I like the current gear system!

What's up with all the people :confused:

It's not like only a few people can upgrade their gear, but EVERYBODY HAS THE POSSIBILITES TO IMPROVE THE GEAR so everybody has EQUAL CHANCES

And also ranked matches are going to be added!

These are facts ;)

This is your oppinion ... I like to change stats of my character and not to stick on the Hero without being able to change him in any way.
To me this would be very boring, so I like it exactly the way it is!

Correct me if im wrong but doesn't higher level gear mean higher level trade offs? Surely these people with insane attack stats on their weapons also have insanely lowered defense? I've never seen heroic gear but isnt that supposed be how it works?

not really,heroic gear boost 2 stat. so i boost attack and defense to reduce feeats cooldown. I play shukogi so i use 4 pasives and i can nearly one every character while im in revenge

There are the wrong stats on the gear - simple.

Too much emphasis on revenge mode, while the soft stats of the heroes fall short. Especially the extreme specialisations lead to very cheesy builds, that are jot fun to play against.

The gears stats should revolve around adding soft stats like a little bit of damage here, a little bit of defense there. Revenge stats should simply disappear from the gear. It is a mode designed to give you a chance against multiple enemies and not to oneshot people, with a +damage and +revenge-dmg build, that activates after being hit two times.

Give us extra stats with fixed numbers and a steady gear progression.

And please adjust the equipment of your bots, according to the players gear. It is not fun to face an equipped bot, while you have 3 gs on ela new hero.

While I don't like your tone, you are right.

Man thats kind of overpowered, you could just trainwreck on people with lower gear. Given how bad the matchmaking already is this just makes things worse.

Well that's not entirely true. Get your facts straight.

If I grind my heroic gear am I still a pay to win idiot?
If people want to buy their gear fair enough the "real" problem is the matchmaker.
When you get heroic gear you too will be called a pay to win idiot even IF you grind for it.
The attitude you have taken just shows what kind of person you are, the kind that ruins most games by calling people out without knowing how exactly someone got the gear they currently run.
