What the actual hell is darkflow smoking? They completely pummelled the MP43 making the fully upgraded 62 bronze 6* MP43 the same as the pre-nerf 3* un-upgraded MP43 all because they decided to change its classification making it basically a carbine. M1 Thompson was left the same and so was all other competitors thus making the M38 40 actually more worth upgrading than the MP43 in its current state. Thats how badly the nerfed messed up
Typically I never even make forum posts since I don’t really see it doing much but clearly some people complained a huge amount about getting killed by the MP43 on here resulting in the hard nerf so maybe its worth a shot telling anyone listening how dumb of an idea this is. MP43’s are rare guns, they are insanely high level and will typically not appear in your average matches thus making their powerful impact not substantial to lower level players so why did they have to destroy its performance and removed the few remaining incentives to throw away my life into grinding 33 levels just for a gun type. Whilst being a very strong gun it wasn’t overpowered like some other guns are when viewed on the same level and in fact was incredibly fun due to its play-style adding diversity to the mostly boring “shoot enemy with FG-42, pick up ammo from ammo boxes, shoot enemy again with FG-42” cycle. The MP43 and Panther where the only things that brought me back to finish grinding the game and have kept me here since due to how they are reliably enjoyable weapons to fall back on when all else gets boring or irritating. So why in the hell did darkflow decide to give a top tier weapon that takes insanely high hours to grind the M1 carbine treatment relegating it to being just a bland mediocre top tier gun proportionally to guns in other campaigns, factions and levels. M1919 getting added in its current state was fine enough and despite being instantly the best MG in the game, I don’t have that much of a problem with it due to it being a unique and fun gun for any allied player as a reward for grinding out such high levels.
For the love of god darkflow, don’t nerf end game equipment to the ground for what appears to be no logical reason, leave the MP43’s stats alone and keep it that way in order to give players something to grind for otherwise they will just look at the weapon that performs nearly identically at 3* as it does at 6* only to be torn apart by FG-42’s, M2 Carbines, MG 34 with the Patronentrommel magazine, M1919 and even the M1 Thompson so as a result not really caring that much about it. Revert the changes back to having upgrades that allow for 9.6 hitpower (hell, I will even settle for anything in the 9’s, just not glorified .45 ACP), 690 rpm and 2.3 reload speed. This will most likely be my last straw before playing another game since the time invested just isn’t worth it at this point.
