Do you think Vtols are unbalanced?

Post by Bruta » 30 Aug 2013, 20:17

Personally in my professional opinion, I think they are. I have recently played Warzone's latest updated version of the game but sadly havent been given the chance to play with vtols. So therefore I can only speak of my experience with 2.3.9 version of the game which has not fulfilled my expectations of them. I have been told that vtols are noobish by playing with people online at the time that this old version was out. I can see some of these peoples point, as the vtols do seem unbalanced in certain ways.

For one these little buggers can reach a point of land with a very short amount of time, while a tank takes - Id say - at least 2 times the amount of time to reach the same point. Second the guns given to us players werent that good in 2.3.9 for stopping the vtols within a fair amount of interval. Lastly even though they do add variety to the game, it seems as though many people wouldnt miss them, as many people turn them off before a match starts anyway.

Comments and Suggestions Welcome. Please state your reasons/opinions.

In 2.3.9 vtol bombs was the strongest weapon in game.
Vtols was nerfed in 3.1 but they seem too stong still.

That is utter ridiculousness, WEAKER? That makes vtols look worse. If thats really true, then its sad to see vtols becoming even more unbalanced!

Here is demonstration of power of VTOL Thermite Bombs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJdm3YJusgc - version 2.3.9
1 thermite bomb can kill 1 tank on Vengeance body.

I see you have not solid understanding of vtol weapons.
We have following vtol-weapons:
1) VTOL Cannons - totally useless
2) VTOL Rockets - usable on low-oil
3) VTOL Machinegun - rarely used
4) VTOL Lasers - useless (except may be heavy laser)
5) VTOL Rail Guns - useless
6) VTOL Bombs - ...
6.1) VTOL Cluster Bombs, VTOL Phosphor Bombs - totally useless
6.2) VTOL Heap Bombs - usable
6.3) VTOL Thermite Bombs, VTOL Plasmite Bombs - usable, overpowered, that bombs are very strong (properly upgraded)

VTOL Thermite Bombs, VTOL Plasmite Bombs - became weaker in 3.1

WOWWW, Good video example of the cheapness of that ONE vtol pretty much taking out THREE VENGENCE TRACKS!

That is so much power for one vtol to have. I do agree that the thermite bombs are overpowered. The video is a great example of showing that. Thanks for adding that video ;)
