Patch doesn't address eldar imbalance???

Postby Wintermute » 19 May 2016, 17:57

I'm not sure if I'm just missing something or if the patch notes I just read actually mean they didn't do a thing to balance Eldar? Please tell me you guys just forgot to put that in the patch notes? How on earth was custom games with your friends seen as a higher priority?

It's probably priorities, repairing potentially serious errors and bugs tends to be more important then balance. You can't make use of any balance changes when the set up itself is unstable enough to prevent you from doing so. It's better to make sure it runs first before you put on the paint.

I too am disappointed that some balancing issues have not been addressed despite the posts from the devs saying that they would be.

They said the Eldar were next to be balanced, not that it'd be in the very next patch. I'm disappointed too, the community seems to be drying up a tad.

When Balancing Eldar means another nerf without a real buff to their Ship Variety and other issues, they make the last few players in MP leave for Single Player.

Just think about this:
Does Eldar have anything beside Pulsar's to even stand a chance?

Pretty much this.

The pulsar itself isn't really all that bad. 3 dps Lance on a fixed mount. The problem is specific to the voidstalker s range and bombers. The voidstalkers bombers do more alpha damage than the pulsar (480vs360 while ignoring sheilds) but are harder to do anything about (interceptor squadrons dont do much to eldar ordnance's 80% save)

I mean, eldar bombers are fantastic, but even they can't count as a primary source of damage with only one launch bay on the Solaris.

The shadow is pretty much the worst ship in the game atm. Only main cruiser with only 4 torps offsets the eldar torps being more survivable (and no alt torps)

Eldar actually need quite a few buffs to make even their existing roster viable.

and what are you gonna do? you need to address it right now, because people frustrated by this imbalance is piling up.
you can always fix it later, but without trying to get something? i very doubt it.
also 2 weeks in the works for this patch, but no gameplay balance whatsoever... probably waiting for next week for a total-balance patch, dunno, but if they are not balancing it right now before a new fleet will launch (adeptus astartes), it's gonna be really bad.
