    Default Rift is FPS now?

    I tried pvping in the 55+ bracket today for the first time and i couldn't believe how awful it was. Just range upon range with barely any heals. I couldn't even think of getting in melee nm staying there for less then a second. the new wf is basically a shooting gallery with 0 place for melee. I dont get where rift is going with this but hopefully it gets better at 60. AOE needs another nerf IMO and range dps needs a major nerf across the board. there is legit no spot for melee in most of the maps. its just two range sides, anything in front or in the middle of the two sides gets obliterated

    You know FPS stands for First Person Shooter and range dps has nothing to do with that, right?

    Well you only melee for humiliation purposes in fpses, unless its modern military shooter #635, where it's instant kill, thought still rather humiliating.

    it was sarcasm since there is no such thing as melee after rank 54 since range dps is crazy OP (tempest included)

    Maybe they accidentally let a Warface developer on some conference calls.

    There is a difference about complaining about something that isn't a problem and something that is. You never predicted, that I recall, that this state will come forward. You can't act like now that your tune actually plays in harmony that it was the right tune all along. You complained about range DPS when it was far from an issue in any aspect really. You'd complain still if it wasn't a problem. You will always complain about someone who has more than 20m range capability. It just is coincidence you are right for this brief era of time. They could patch it up so things feel more balanced, and you will still call every MM a coward.

    I mean, you complain about a Death Prevent on the warrior boards and conclude it to Trion catering to ranged kiters. What a joke.

    I don't think so, but PS2 is fun. At least it has actual PVP.

    It was not a problem when you started your crusade against it.

    And if you don't like me bringing up thread history, quit creating such an absurd history for yourself. It is just an extent to show, as I said, you will hold this stance even for things completely irrelevant to it. I'm sure kiters crashed the US economy too.

    It actually does feel like an fps..
    but without the skill of aiming, and map tactics..

    it is pretty pathetic actually..

    Aside from black garden, there is no map where warriors can't melee effectively, if they are competent. The scenario changes at 60 possibly, but from 51-59 I've been consistently landing in the top damage and kill spots as melee.
    Waiting for Wildstar...
