Ion Torpedo Nerf

So... This is all over the in game chat, but somehow not on the forums. Ion torps are killing ATSTs in a matter of seconds. We went from one extreme to the other. What to do? Damage and lock-on time are ideal. However, the wait time between shots is too short(not ability recharge, time between the 3 shots). I suggest a 5 second wait, but also the ability to holster ion torp like barrage in caee you need to shoot a trooper. Ion torp 5 second timer would only run when it is out of the holster. Thoughts?

    Honestly AT-STs would have to be toned down for this to happen. Without a strong counter they dominate and can win entire matches for their team, just by pressing a few buttons.

    Ion torpedo nerf doesn’t exist and it won’t ever exist either, because it doesn’t need nerfed.

    Two torpedo's is the only buff it shouldve gotten. Not a commando heavy destroying one in 3 seconds. Ridiculous.

    Before the patch you could use nt-242 and a-280cfe with ion as a specialist to take them down.

    Assault could use ion grenade and any weapon to take it down.

    But now the heavy takes 3 seconds no skill to kill it.

    Just point lock and shoot.

    Just an increase in spacing between shots, so it does not die in 2 seconds via commando heavy.

    Thank you. 3 second tank kill should not exist.

  • They need to tone it down slightly I think. You can rock almost all vehicles now with it except the bomber, including the MTTs and Walkers. It fires too quickly, does a ton of damage and it doesn't give you any time to evade as a star fighter. I also think that boost doesn't work against it too sometimes, but that might just be one of the other ion shots from some other source.

    There is an ion shot in the game that cannot be boosted out of lock in the game. It's either the ion torpedo, ion turret, or something. Dice please fix.

    It is ion torp. But I no longer bother playing vehicles. Oh, by the way, my heavy just got a kill streak of three... On ATSTs... In 6 seconds.

    They're one shotting interceptors, its just ridiculous
  • cost of vehicles needs to be lowered. It should of stayed at 1 shot with a buff that can deal as much as ~two shots.
  • The BP gain from it needs a nerf, because really everything else is fine. The point of land vehicles is just to be glass cannons. Almost every class in the game is able to counter vehicles. Heavy is one of them.

    Vehicles should cost 500 bp.

    I rhink their cost should be lowered, but only to around 1,500 for an ATST.

    It is incredible to me to think that someone on the devopement team thought that buffing it this much was a good idea. What a terrible idea!
  • I personally think it's a fantastic buff. Truly. But that's because I typically play anti-vehicle anyway. While I would be rather sad to see it get nerfed, I'd be alright if it went down to 2 torpedoes, but does the same damage and same firing rate. That way it still causes massive damage to vehicles, but you'll need at least one more person to truly take it out, and remains a very viable anti-air weapon.

    And I think @UnknownGamer is spot on for vehicle cost. Definitely shouldn't be over 2,000. Though I think even 2,000 for AT-ST/AAT is perfect, and maybe 1,000 or so for AT-RT and Rebel Landspeeder.

    Liuvs should cost 10,000 bp.

    LOL. No, maybe 300 though to account for the hidden head.

    Ion torpedo targets taun tauns as well.

    Yeah, they also catch fire but don't die... And if you take a heavy gun and shoot one in the face kn a stable they look like they are being electrocuted. Tauntauns are just plain wierd when they are on the Battlefront. Can we get this adressed, maybe?

  • I feel like it's more an issue about the Vehicles themselves. AT-STs are very clunky to move in and are a very easy target because they don't have any sort of armor that protects their health.

    WHAT?!
    We finally got the things buffed so they are useful.
    The weakest part of an ATST is behind the head, don't turn your back on an Ion Torpedo and you'll last longer.
    Find the bugger who is shooting you and waste him before he kills you.
    First chance you get, buy the star card that buffs that part of the unit and keep buffing it until you can hit legendary.

    Feel like it is fine now. Maybe add jump to ATRT though.

    Actually, I started this thread when everyone was spamming it. No longer in issue in my opinion.

    Still ridiculous

    @F8RGE
    Do you think we could see some balancing for this?
    keeboxdf4h4g.gif

  • New ion torpedo suck, before ion torpedo was great, if you want destroy vehicules, you pain and you shoot to continue
  • Still ridiculous

    @F8RGE

    I mean... Most people don't use it. It takes away your grenade, which is important. So... Gotta have a different playstyle. I use ion torp, supercharged sentry, and improved shield with a TL-50 with reduced spread and secondary fire. Still got grenades, a better sentry and a better shield, plus I can attack vehicles. Downside? Secondary fire will not work with a shield. Lokking at the big picture, I see balance.
