Rate of Fire

I have noticed when upgrading certain ships that their rate of fire either changes and in some cases becomes worse ( decreases ).

The decision to reduce the ROF seems random or nonsensical for some of these ships. Reducing or changing the ROF does not introduce "flavor" or make a ship more unique. It actually makes the transition to Tier V a bit uncomfortable. This is because the upgrade is not consistent.

I understand that ships will generally get a HP and DMG boost. This is not at all a good reason to make a ship perform worse than it’s lower tier counterpart.

You commit hours and grind to "Upgrade". A Tier V ship should not feel like a disappointment but that is exactly how I felt when I very recently unlocked the Tier V Gora.

It does not add excitement to the game when the main weapon ( what you use the most of ) becomes less exciting to fire ( ie: Tier V Jupiter arms destroyer, Tier V Oberon Artillery, Tier V Akula Destroyer )

Here is a very simple solution: Allow the player to choose the rate of fire . You could have a sliding scale or a selection of different options. The options increase with higher tiers. a. High ROF less DMG and smaller ammo pool b. Med ROF current DMG output and ammo pool c. Low ROF high DMG large ammo pool

( Below is just more ranting about this. Sorry but I'm really bummed out about the Gora and the Stabia)

The Tier III Dola has a much better and more preferred ROF than the Tier V Gora. That to me is unacceptable. In this particular case I would rather less HP at the cost of a faster ROF

The best example of this strange trend is with the The Oberon Artillery. The ROF gets progressively worse as you increase tiers. ( The Tier II ROF is actually much better than the Tier V ) I urge you to go back and play the Tier II. The ROF is fast and fun. The Tier V is slow and dull -I think the Tier IV ROF is probably perfect. The Tier V has more DMG but I can’t help the feeling that the Devs messed this up.

Please comment and add input if you agree or disagree. I know there are probably more pressing issues and things that need to be fixed but I do think this is a important problem that needs to be addressed.

Learn 2 aim better so ROF doesn't matter.

Sorry, does it say anywhere in this post that I miss targets because of a reduced ROF?

Not only have you missed the point but your comment does not make much sense. When most ships are pretty maneuverable at tier V, the DURATION between each shot actually does matter.

It's not a matter of landing shots, the Gora's ROF is a joke.

I use the tier V Stabia all the time. I just think the tier IV is a little more fun to play and I think that is because they have watered down the ROF - the main gun of the Stabia feels DULL in comparison to it's tier iv couterpart.

I suppose it's difficult for me to explain that I am really talking about tempo.

T5 ship movement speed is the same as T4. If a RoF is slower on a ship is has been done so to balance that ship. The devs have done a good job in making no ship the "must have" in there line.

There are people on the flip side to you. A friend likes the Gora over the Blud and won't even fly the Blud in Veteran.

As above, why is a lower ROF but a ton more damage a bad thing? I don't quite understand.

The Gora's an absolute brute and it's slow, powerful fire rather suits it, I think.

There is a difference but I think I'm explaining this all wrong so I'm going to try to stitch some videos together so I can expose the truth

BTW if you are the same Poppa ( Papa? ) Khan on PS4 Legendary matches, you and your sqaud are awesome. Tough outs every one of you.

yes sir that is the same poppa_khan and thank you we aim to amaze .

i under stand what you mean about the main guns feeling off but the damage pershot if used against the correct target makes it a must have anchor. my biggest gripe is with the Nevis main guns. to me they feel like scatter guns compared to the gating guns on the valcore.

perhaps your just not in the right mind set to use the Gora if you like we could squad up and I could show you some tricks and builds
