they did not like the fact that you could get lucky and kill someone rather then kill them because you are better.
No skilled player wants to rely on RNG, if you were skilled you would know why.
With the changes we still rely on RNG. It won`t take more skill to kill anyone, it will just take more time and we will overheat more.
The changes don`t make any other skill better, we will still be basically using thermal detonator, flame burst/rocket punch and rail shot with an incendiary missile here and there
