I for one am sick and tired of getting killed over and over by photons. When I complain, i'm called a noob and ppl say "if you cant kill one your a noob" I can kill a player w/ a photon, sure, but only if i they aernt proficint at it, and many are.

What I am suggesting to Stefan is to power down the photon, make it less powerful (less expensive as the power goes down too, MAYBE.) Any1 agree? comments?

well maybe they should. it was a mistake to bring it in to the game, because it IS the ultimate weapon and normal players and noobs especially will get killed repeatedly to the point where they dont want to play and graal loses MORE players

It has weaknesses to exploit, you just have to find them. It's just not as weak as some other weapons (R-51's). The same thing happened with the DS earlier. Just find it's weakness.

The photon has already been powered down. I think it use to do 24 but, I don't remember. It can't shoot very far so just range it. Most of the people who I see use the photon just hold down S. So when they're doing that dodge shoot and repeat.

I'm not paying 18k for something that does 10 damage unless it looks really cool. What picture?

I haven't killed a photon with a gravitron yet. I gotta put that on my list.

Uhhh more complaining. The photon is an easy kill. Rifles can't hit you if your standing in front of them. A Plasmasaber can kill a photon pretty easily.

And heres a hint. DONT RUN INTO THE BULLETS, learn to dodge them, even if that means turning around or running back a few steps. Photons can be killed by 1 app, if the player actually knows what there doing. I know, I've done it and seen it done before.

How do you get close to a photon that's a commando class? You can't use jet to get close to them or they'll run away.

If you want a rifle to be decreased because of being overpowered, look at the enhancedpulsar.

Enhanced Pulsar;

5 dmg per bullet. Shoots 4 bullets at once.
Freeze time = ~Red Rifles
Takes up 8 energy
Goes about as far as LR Pulsar

Photon;
22 dmg per bullet. Shoots 1 bullet.
Freeze time = Slower than Red Rifle and Blue Rifle
Takes up 0 energy
Goes about as far as a kv24

now, which weapon did you think was over powered again?

Photon is without a doubt the worst, most lame weapon ever. (I know i used to use it all the time) But apart from all the time and effort sayian put into it making it look like a giant fish, refunding every player that had 1 and also creating a rage for people who love them, YOU shouldn't play zone if you can't handle being beaten, photon or not.

This problems nothing to do with photons and you know it, photon is an unbelievable advantage to any player that holds them, i know i lost a 150 bounty to 1 in like 2 seconds, but just because you can't beet someone, doesn't mean you have to take away there advantage. Make your own advantage..

I like most of teh weapons. I don't want a reset when I have more hours than most zone players at nearly 700 hours..... I also don't want to lose my stats and all the weapons I have earned. The photon is fine. Learn to dodge it. I have it and I honestly prefer to use the rr and laserforce over it....

sorry, sorry i was laughing too hard when i read all these new arguements andyway i meant to say "dude, the photon is prolly gonna stay the same thing it is, so just quit whining and figure out a way to beat it and maybe people will respect you more than they already do but if you can't beat it then try your hardest and if you are affraid then RUN FOR YOUR GODFORSAKEN LIFE! BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T THE FUXING PHOTONS WILL COME INTO YOUR BASE AND LAME THE **** OUT OF YOU!

Any weapon can beat any other weapon. It's not how "lame" it is. They all have there kicks, and they all have there set backs. If you really want to beat someone (this is how i fight), learn the angles that the weapon can shoot, and stay out of that one angle.

Spread weapons are the best, of course. :)

Ok, I do not own a Photon, I own a Blue Rifle, And a Jetpack. And I have no problem with the photon. Actually, It sucks in my opinion, I found out Blue Rifle goes Further, And I can easily kill anyone using a Photon with Appirces, Yes, Even when they are using Commando class too. I also can kill them IrPulsar, And that has no spread. :/

Oh right. Lr pwns Photon. It barely has any freeze time so you can get a few shots in and not get hit by the bad guy. Then when you kill them with 100 hp left they go "WTF H4X0R."

DS isnt a laming wep, at least to me

80 damage in one shot is only kinda lame. >.> You could backstrafe and keep shooting with it to in turn making people mad. They won't be able to hit you but you keep hitting them.

We are thinking of making the player a bit slower when fighting with the photon. If you are so terrified of such things happening, you shouldn't be. You must have made up for the money you spent on the photon with the photon ten fold.

I don't because honestly....it sucks. Period. For me, its too slow and too powerful, i like a little challenge on my rifles, and besides too many nubs use it, the price is too low, specially cuz the Xmas pack and that free 8K(I saw a soldier with one).

It is a semi-automatic plasma cannon. It does almost a quarter of a players maximum health when shooting 1 single bullet. It's range is medium and not short. It can fire a quickly charged shot which only consumes 10 ammo altogether but can cause extremely damaging results and it can be used on the fastest classes in the game.

thats because it's such a big and technologically advanced weapon. :cool:

on another note, its range still isn't long enough to really call it lame (just lrpulsar/apripper your way out of it). you could use the above arguments and call mortar the lamest gun in the game. (long range, kills players in 1-2 hits)

I want to keep them beacuse people worked hard for them thus giving them the rights to use em but if you get rid of their power make a new one that looks the same but power it down. and make the old one unbyable.. But it has a weekness. it has crapy sperde. it's very acuret but it's easy to dodge.
