okay I swear on my mum. the vigilant is disgustingly overpowered with the spacial stabilizer, 8k range+ some garbage 10kdps is stupid. I keep complaining over any forum and Im not getting any answers.
federation gets… speed and energy.
jericho gets… shield…
empire gets high hull and high damage.
this is stupid and empire is a bit too powerful
“oh but! how are they gonna heal all that hull?!” simple. they don’t need to. they sit at 8000m away from anyone and they just kill anything within seconds. nobody can get close and if they do? minelayer bye-bye pesky interceptors. and if you were to spend your life towards damaging a vigilant? too bad you only did about… 5 to 10 percent of it’s total hull before dying. which isn’t enough in a gamemode such as team deathmatch.
meanwhile the tyrant has been arguably the worst of all 3 destroyers with a lame +20% or so extra shield regen different from the other sides of conflict which doesn’t change anything considering every destroyer ever uses either the vacuum resonance laser or the halo launcher.
the isotope harvester only does so little damage and heals so little to the point where none of any tyrants I see in-game use it.
most engineers are really good at healing hull while shields are getting a little neglected, especially the brokk works all it’s life on hull so if there’s two vigilants OR one vigilant+one brokk. just give up.
“oh but its a team game” nobody has the brain capacity to focus a vigilant and especially since they sit eight thousand meters away, you’d have to take on all of their teammates first.
the only enemy of a vigilant is interceptors that receive a thousand damage for getting hit for a fraction of a second to the resonance laser, or a longrange frigate that cant hit them because of static shields. or a weak guided torpedo can’t damage them quickly enough.
the spacial stabilizer almost only benefits the vigilant with it’s no need for projectile speed laser, and the 80% extra damage is just disgustingly overpowered on the vacuum laser.
im not asking for a massive nerf. I just want to see a more balanced rework of the spacial stabilizer, either a revert of the vigilant’s empire might patch. OR a buff to the jericho and federation destroyers so they get a chance of retaliating.
I had a 1 vs 1 with a vigilant, I was in a tyrant. and it was a pretty close fight, before the empire might patch. now I basically have no chance of victory if they use static shields and I refuse to use the halo launcher. the halo launcher is stupid and shouldn’t be a destroyer’s job to counter a destroyer. give that job to gunships and covert ops.
oh. wait. they can’t have that job. they die immediately on a smooth touch of the vacuum laser.
(for the love of god give more projectile speed to the thermoactive weapon.)
