You reduced the radius of Death form Above which was fine but now you ninja nerfed the damage by 30-40%. PLEASE EXPLAIN YOURSELF.

He's having fun throwing a tantrum, next he will tell us he unsubbed and expect us to care.

No this is a ninja nerf or someone messed up as the damage of death form above was not to be reduced!

Not going anywhere as of yet. Paid for a full 6 months. But alot of people are talking about how damage is reduced more than the 10% that was on the PTS..

So instead of being azzhats maybe listen.

But you guys keep saying what your saying.

I'll log in and check. I'm betting it's because it now works the same as Mortar Volley for damage, which was definitely inferior to DFA.

Did they forget to respec when all their points were refunded or something? I could take out my PT and never use DFA once and stomp all over 60k damage.

I AM going to unsuscribe. I'm just leveling to get my thermal detonator and I'm going to shelve this game for a year or so. I'm guessing the best stuff this game will have to offer won't even be playable until a few years anyway. KoTOR3 meets SW:Battlefront 3

I'm also guessing because of this nerf that you won't hardly see merc.'s at the top of damage anymore. Leave that to the lightning fingers and pebble throwers.

Radius reduction hurt bad, -30-40% damage is real bad, but not giving us the talent tree options to get some of it back is worst of all. The decent thing for them to have done was at least add DFA to the +crit for Rail shot/Thermal det/IM/FM (forgot name).

I'm not encouraging any BH to quit/unsuscribe. By all means keep playing and providing the feedback Bio/EA aparently needs because they may or may not know what they are doing. I look forward to when things have settled down and/or expanded.
