Hm, I don’t see that anywhere from any credible source.... care to share where these numbers came from?
That's as credible as it gets. The relative difference has been tweaked, and jets do ~46% more damage now. The devs seem to change the hidden stats frequently. The displayed stats are useless.
Bob is right ... show video side by side, because you are misleading here.
It is clear that the damage per cycle in Papa's mining is 4200 to 3600 ... which certainly is not a 46% advantage. The Rebel jets do 1/6th more damage per cycle ... approximately 17% or so.
And even that is slightly misleading because of the different reload times (slightly faster for rebels) and shot delays (slightly longer for rebels) ... etc.
There have been a TON of trusted players on both sides that have done video comparisons of these in the LINE community. And, in general, it is a consensus that rebel jets are slightly better, SLIGHTLY. Sure, the more generous skins help some ... but again ... SLIGHTLY. And the Jet skins are not as generous as the ridiculous amount of power that base Imp RFTs have over the rebels.
All that aside ... I think it is easy for Imps to call it whining. Why not make everything even across the board? Can't complain about that. Doesn't seem difficult to do.
Or we can keep arguing about little numbers within the code and continue to try desperately to act like Rodain skinned snipers are equal to vanguards popping out of GR. Seems if they were equal, EVERY SINGLE rebel would use vanguards and fewer Imps would use Rodian skinned snipers.
But nope, pretty much 95% of the Imp community uses the Rodians ... and can even give them a med in their SC because of their lower cap. I think all jets all the time kind of sucks. Almost 100% of the high-level players in the game use a completely jet-centered loadout.
If 100% of attackers are using jets and it is ridiculous (which it is) then 100% of defenders using the same GR is ridiculous.
