Re: all RPK successors: RPK-74, Lada RPK, and LMG 944

I agree with making the pact '90 infantry actual upgrades when it comes to MGs. However, if Eugen believes that modernized pact MGs were worse than old MGs because they were cheaper, then another creative solution is to discount all pact '90 infantry by 5 points instead of touching the MGs (and perh...

Re: RPK-74

This is really infuriating for precisely this reason, infantry combat isn't nuanced at all so standardizing rifles and the like but not MGs is just retarded. Was the MG3 better than the PKM? Perhaps. Was this difference so massive it would decide company-scale battles? Doubtful. Box-fed 7.62 full p...

Re: Red Dragon player numbers graphed since launch

I don't think it bodes well for sales if over the 3 games no real new players have stayed Is this really any surprise? (1) Eugen doesn't really seem interested in putting forth much effort to draw in the competitive crowd by quickly addressing balance issues (I left pre-DLC1 because blufor players ...

Re: BLUFOR/REDFOR win ratio ...

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. A lot of game studios struggle with game balance issues, and for whatever reason a lot of game studios don't like to look to Blizzard for leadership in the areas of RTS or MMORPG. (Who would want something like Starcraft I, II, or World of ...

Has Eugen commented on the ranked play imbalances described in the last 4-5 pages of this thread, here or elsewhere?

Re: BLUFOR/REDFOR win ratio ...

If you can't balance the units to be equally good in both modes, you gotta pick one where they will be balanced , and one where they won't be. In my opinion, the balanced mode should be the one that 95%+ of people play . Dixi. Best wishes, Daniel Casual players don't know anything about balance. It...

Re: BLUFOR/REDFOR win ratio ...

Balancing around a high level of play makes sense because it encourages players to play more to become better at the game - simply put, it adds depth. This increases interest in the game. Balancing around casual play makes a game more shallow, because as players become better, they realize that ther...

Re: BLUFOR/REDFOR win ratio ...

If Eugen is interested in how the Blizzard class-act of balancing is done, note Blizzard's balance reasoning: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/11884068394#1 "After testing in the current balance test map, watching current pro level matches , gathering your feedback, and hearing from pro ...

Top 9 Ranked Players All Play Blufor. RD is not balanced.

Go to the in-game leaderboard and see for yourself. There is currently not a single Redfor player in the top 9 ranked players. The top 10-20 has a few Redfor players, but still has more Blufor players. The game is obviously not balanced. It's unfortunate that Eugen has its head in the sand by lookin...

Re: BLUFOR/REDFOR win ratio ...

Is there a place you can see the side played by the top 20 ranked players? You can just go to the Leaderboard and look at the statistics of the top 20 players, including factions played. Wow thank you. The proof's in the pudding. As of 8:00 EST 5-14-14, in the top 10 players, 9 play Blufor for 90% ...
