Xenomorph tackle spam is seriously broken.

Postby Shadowflame909 » Sat May 19, 2018 4:48 am #411494

Holy hell, I used it so much I got an admin remark that said I was aim-botting! But anyways...

1. Be main antagonist wizard, trade for the speedy monster that is the ninja to see the new Ninja Clan VR Place.

2.I'm doing pretty good, as powerful as you'd expect from a lone antagonist.

3. All of a sudden random Xenos, I go into maint and they can reach my speed levels. They tackle spam me. I try to escape it, the tackle spam works faster then my adrenals can.

4. I run out of adrenals, my suit is being ripped off and I'm getting face-hugged.

5. Rip the main antagonist space ninja.

Why do Xenomorphs have such a game-breaking mechanic with no cooldown?

Yeah uh, isnt that the whole point of xenos to be able to move quickly and avoid shots in exchange for not being instantly murdered? But yeah, lets just nerf xenos even more and remove the abillity to avoid damage. It's like damaging a part of the high-mobility strategy. Why not just go murderbone xeno with ventcrawl? Killing a xeno isnt that hard anyways as a security officer. Why try to buff security? Edit: To sum it up, this sounds like a bummer that isn't very justified. Leave the rare event that xenos are alone. You don't see people complaining about the intangability of revenants or abductors with there instant stun ko batons.

Pretty sure you would of been immune to tacklespam if you had your katana out because they cant tackle unless you have nothing in your hands

I agree with you, xenomorph hunters are supposed to be able to move quickly and avoid shots in exchange for not being murdered. I just don't want them to have an instant win disarm with there fists. At least cut it down to 50 percent?

What i really dislike is that the 'official' counterplay to this is to have objects in your hand. Who would see a xeno and spontaneously think of filling their backpack with trash to use as buffer?

Xenos are normally 45-60 minutes into the round. Unless a miner got facehugged. So i think Wizard McNinja just got unlucky

Xenos are supposed to be unbeatable that's why spawning them is a fuckup

How about swarmers? I got grudged by a guy I killed earlier in the round and he literally spam-clicked me for 20 minutes straight for unbreakable fatigue damage.

I think the xeno tackle spamis dumb but my post was a near copypasta of something you wrote in GitHub. Mods moved this to the serious section so I can’t continue my post tyranny

many wiz spell combos are inherently OP and unfair but coders will defend it with "muh station vs 1" / "THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE OP" / "just taze them bruh xD" arguments

the thing with this argument and many other arguments similar to this coders use is that its all well and good in theory but in ACTUAL ROUNDS it nearly never works out that way

but coders knowing this would imply them playing the game

You could even say that being turned to stone is the same as being tempbanned
