@cow3477 as much as I think u are right with some statements, there are some that u might want to think twice about it and potencially change ur mind on it. Regardless for who I work or how much I like this game, I'm trying to be very objective here. U keep repeating how great the game was 2012, yet u skip the fact game just came out and of course it attracted more players in very beginning. Also, there was way less rooms so it might seem as more full. Even 2014. I wouldn't call game bad. Sure it wasn't in it's prime, as u saw what FRG said, game could cover only server costs.I would also like to say - some individuals should stop with 'everyone said' because few ppl can't talk in a name of the whole community. I left AS PLAYER because I moved to another games and this game didn't have a real hero/map/rebalance update since 2014 (except tutorial which for me, as older player, makes no difference) and game was under FRG in that time so under both companines game didn't have a real update 3-4 years.Padrone left for the same reason + hacker era in 2015-2016. Let me remind u how ronney used to kick the entire room of players and I am talking about 8v8 rooms.
I do agree with u that rebalancing many classes is needed but they are like this since I started to play this game. So, early 2014. Which means real rebalance didn't happened since 2012-2013. Again, under both companies. U clearly can see as well how many games are on Y8 and FFT is not the only game to handle.
There is a reason why support spam was more cancerious than team full of heavies but at the end, is it really fair to ask from ppl to play on high skill level? Not everyone can do it, at the end. That's why games have difficulty of classes and it's players choice. I enjoy Tank and Gunner as much as I enjoy Bomber and Shocker. But that's just me and I can't expect from ppl to act the same way as I do. Webgl broke the Tank and HMG is near impossible to use.
Now, I am more than willing to change the stuff regarding rebalancing, but that's not up to me. Also, there is another big issue, riot that can start because we changed ppls main class while they liked to abuse some of the...Not that fair adventages of it. That's because ppl want changes and want them correct, but yet being subjective and selfish.
@Cpt.Joe and than that new player runs on me and I prove him opposite with any class, even Tech. I am not sure against which new players u play, but against those i played in about 5-8k hours, they didn't even know how to slide. Hell, some didn't even know how to get out of base. Other than that, ppl don't know weakness of some class. I am pretty sure that many didn't figure out how Bomber is effective against Tank, in fact he is anti-Tank.
@atompocok skins are just to make u look fancy, it's not p2w.
