completely agree.  They are so weak that they can pretty much die from a bot/firebase/turret looking at them.  How is giving them more time in the open with no escape a good thing in any way?

Thats good that they are working on the overpowered classes.

While I appreciate all the balance tweaks being done, I do wish the assassin would get some buffs. It's currently the weakest class as well as being the class with the least teamplay abilities.

Wow, that's an awesome update. Glad to hear the first DLC is free, I 'm also wondering how much the other 2 DLC will cost.

I'm not gathering with what is actually wrong with the Assassin's update? Doesn't seem like it will effect her too much.  
 
But I'm glad this is happening, super psyched that a good summer of arcade game is actually being updated and actually succeed in having a life more than other xbla titles seem to have. Been playing this a bunch and have a blast.

Good To hear an update and DLC for a great game thanks Uber!

#57 Posted by zityz (2360 posts) -

That's rad that they're going through all that and also give a dlc for free ( its like theyre really taking a page from valve) 
 
Now only if a certain company release info about when a certain DLC for thier dracula huntin game is comming out I can rest easy. 
 
Until then, NO EASY RESTING!

Finally, it's super annoying to have a melee cooldown when you miss!

#59 Posted by eschatonik (20 posts) -
 Reworked Support’s bot aura so that it doesn’t make the Jackbot appear overhealed.
    
 
I KNEW they weren't really overhealed.  People were yipping about that soooo much.

I know what I'm playing tonight.

/tip hat to Uber for supporting their arcade game.
 
Keep this up Uber and I'll buy most of what you make

#62 Posted by ISuperGamerI (1880 posts) -

I still need to buy this game, it seems like a lot of fun.

#63 Posted by Morris (106 posts) -

Glad to hear that Uber is gonna support this game. I think DLC is a really great way to keep an xbla player base coming back.

#64 Posted by EDfromRED (126 posts) -

 Sweet. Looks like they addressed annoying issues I found, and alot more I didn't. 
 Can't wait for the DLC  : )
#65 Posted by NekuCTR (1663 posts) -

YES, Nerf the Support! Keep it up Uber!

#66 Posted by 9mmfistcuffs (28 posts) -

overall looks good, though I'm saddened to see supports hack so throughly nerfed. I can live with turret capture going to level 3 but really hope they reconsider either leaving the durations alone or speeding up the cooldown.

Pro Tip: Don't back stab dudes in front of a turret.

In other news, all these updates seem great.
#69 Posted by HatKing (5821 posts) -

FUCKING AWESOME.  I am so glad they're supporting this game.  I officially redact all of my worries about this game dying and becoming stale.
#70 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (4777 posts) -

thank god, I hope what they do fixes the game, cause right now its quite literally broke, Matches turn into big camping rounds, till the over time where each team will rush and try to juice kill the money ball.

too bad thats not the case.
I've went entire games as support, with my lvl 3 fire base lvl 3 hacked , and a laser blazer level 3, and just watched as an assassin rushed in, killed me, then rush off with no problem.  and thats even without cloak cause if they grapple you and are cloaked the turrets will ignore the assassin, but I'm talking about none cloaked they will literally kill you fast enough they can run off, or use a smoke bomb and escape with ease. Which is why me and quite a few others think the Assassin is overpowered with the right endorsements it can rush in kill, then run with half dmg.
#72 Posted by McBradders (150 posts) -

Yup, support needed a pretty good nerf although I'm not sure they've done enough (Hey, I play support before you guys jump on my back for this comment). Assassin needed a couple more buffs IMO as in they can struggle for an entire match rather than just at the beginning. I play my Asassin defensively so I don't have so many issues of being torn down by turrets, but not being able to cloak during a grapple is a real dunderheaded move in my opinion.
 
Anyway, glad this is being fixed, the game is a little rough around the edges but still a contender for my GOTY, fucking amazing game.

Good job Uber! I wasn't going to buy your new awesome game because of the instant host migration errors, but if this patch works, I will buy it... eventually (sorry don't have teh cash).

#74 Posted by ry0wn (171 posts) -

Awesome game updates and free DLC, all on a fun $15 game? Somebody's doing video games right.

#75 Edited by RoyCampbell (1096 posts) -

Can't wait. While I do have 3,000+ kills, I can't play it anymore with how garbage the community and their tactics have gotten. Just way too campy and spammy, especially with the Support.
 
Hope it gets out soon. Damn it. Oh and the DLC has me all excited with it being free and unknown. I'd love to see a new mode introduced, like a variant of Capture the Flag but it would be "Capture the Bacon". So many possibilities.

But the whole point is that you could backstab dudes in front of a turret and get away with it making the assassin somewhat more of a team player, e.g. she could take out a camping support next to his turret making it easier for your team to take out the turret. I had always assumed that this was intentional on uber' s part to make the assassin more useful and not an exploit that needed to be fixed at all s part to make the assassin more useful and not an exploit that needed to be fixed at all

Dude you really hate the assassin! Have you ever tried playing as her? It's really not as easy as that. You take out a support anywhere near a level 3 firebase without cloaking and you will die 99% of the time.

Free patches!
 
Whats the world coming to?

Gotta use smoke bomb friend.  It disables turrets and firebases.  That or get your tank buddy to drop a product grenade on the firebase.  Also disables turrets and firebases.
#81 Posted by Wandrecanada (402 posts) -

If everyone is worried about camping support players you should just encourage other team mates with classes designed to remove turrets and firebases to do.  If there is a class disparity when you're choosing your classes that's a team issue.  If you pick assassin when three others are already on the team you deserve to get molested by firebases.
 
Protip:  All firebases of all levels even with overheal are one shot kills to assault traps and airstrikes.  They can also be temporarily disabled by smoke bombs and product grenades.

Glad to see that the developers are going to support this game.  I really have a great time with it.

#83 Posted by JohnZimmerman (197 posts) -
