    It looks like those guys who were losing to Stinger Pistol got what they asked for -

    Um, did anyone even mention wanting stinger pistol nerfs? or are you just saying that for effect

    Yes, there were people wanting stinger pistol nerf. There was this Anakin profile pic guy who even made a thread with video 'proving' how OP stinger pistol was xD

    And I've seen people crying about it many times while I was in game ;v

    OP? lmao how ridiculous. Aside from being an annoyance to the niche group of killstreakers, I don't see why anyone would have any gripes about the little DoT pistol

    And now he felt her, really felt her in the Force; He felt a bond, deeper and more intimate than he’d ever had before; and for a precious eternal instant he was her. . . 

    he was the beat of her heart and he was the motion of her lips. He was her soft words as though she spoke a prayer to the stars— I love you, Anakin. In life, and in death, we will always be one. I am yours

    Stinger nerf was completely unnecessary. I dont care though. I didnt use it and its killed me like twice in the games life span.

    Yea, he posted video when he was shooting yoda from the back. I mean, this Yoda guy was clueless but he posted it like if it was ultimate proof for stinger pistol OPness xD

  • Was it ever confirmed that it was nerfed? If it was...can it be buffed back? There was no reason to nerf it and it was a viable weapon against heroes.
  • One of my favorite things to see is a stinger pistol user cowering around a corner waiting.....just waiting patiently like a hawk. They are probably sweating with anticipation of when you'll be within their sights. Then finally, they get that precious shot off as they become another number in the herolord killstreak. At least they died happy. And at least they'll spawn in again to do the same exact thing until the match ends.
  • I was wondering why it seems vastly less effective than before. I used to like it because the specialist is a pretty weak class in many ways, and having a good anti-hero weapon gave it an extra purpose and encouraged people to play it.

    I don't agree with the argument that "weak" players enjoyment of the game doesn't matter. Star Wars has never been Sci-Fi for Sci-Fi fans, it's always been a very accessible franchise that everyone can enjoy. In the same vein, the game ought to be something everyone will enjoy - not just talented people or people who have ages to put into the game. So for me that argument may hold true for eSports titles, but not for a game that is intended to have the broadest appeal possible.

    I do agree that Heroes can sometimes be "too much". You get them zap in... shoot around killing everything and absorbing colossal damage... and then zap out of range for a bit to get their mojo back....And then they're back to rinse-and-repeat.

    At the very least. Why not simply allow the ION weapons (Turret and Torpedo) to target heroes as part of one of their upgrades? Vehicles regularly have to hold from crossing areas protected by these until they have been dealt with because a well-placed Ion turret will absolutely wreck them, but the turret is harmless to infantry so a quick rush to it, or sniper shot takes care of it - rewarding the vehicle working WITH the infantry.
  • It was nerfed cause herolords killstreak must go on. People who run this game are only kissin their a...... Main thing to please them.
  • The stinger pistol rarely took out a hero. If it did, that hero's time was going to be short anyway. The nerf was unnecessary and made the game worse.
