Its that time again Pilots!

This week we want to know about your thoughts with the latest patch changes?

Was there something that stuck out to you as a surprise? Something that changed that made you cringe? We want to KNOW! Also this week we have some 2K Hawken Credit codes to give out and some news to discuss.

Hope to see you all there!

Good Luck Pilots,

And may your fuel reserves never run dry.

Heat didn't need a nerf, it doesn't have the DPS to remain a good alternative to eoc.

No shield nerf is as frustrating as it is surprising.

Still no eta on party system or private servers.

But overall really like the patch, helps lower ttk, limits bad techs and aharpshooters, and brings the tow heat back down from the previous huge 20% increase.

Patch needed more notes.

Like the new Vulcan.

x2 EXP weekend had the most players I've seen playing in a long time.

How does each member of the cockpit crew feel about cupcakes?  Should Hawken devs turn their focus towards more pastry-oriented mech designs?  Maybe a new battleship in the form of a regular sized cake?

So when the battleship explodes, it will rain down frosting? I can only imagine it would look something like this.

If the shield stay this way, I think we need an offensive item that can penetrate it.

I personally have felt a sense of things not going as well as I thought they should. How do you think the latest series of layoffs (Scrapes & Jody) will affect the continued development of Hawken ?

will we see the return of the old health bar function not design, enemy health is not seen unless you first hit them? right now you can be in the middle of a fight and see someone almost dead run around the corner you take that moment to kill the easy target then resume your current battle. just seems to take a little mystery out of the game.

right now heat management at almost overheating state takes longer to cool down than overheating altogether. will we see shorter cool downs on heat management than overheating?

will we see the speeds of mechs increase slightly?

well we see a nerf or change to the shield?

will we see some action to make he grenade more comparable to the det?

Will we ever see some sort of class limit ?
And i ask because i'm seeing more and more games that feature only one or two different Mechs used, maybe three.
Which REALLY becomes infuriating when it's a metric shizzle ton of Sharpshooters and Reapers, because in most games, the only possible counters are to copy them and countersnipe, or to just leave.

And on a note related to the last patch : now that the Heat cannon has been nerfed (which has driven just about everyone over to the EOC, which is now the OP BS weapon of choice... If it wasn't already), will we see a decent nerf to the EOC, Slug and Sabot soon ?

Hopefully we find out what's up, since Scapes and the community team lost their jobs. I can't help but see big red flags.

No prevarication.  No hyperbole.  No predilection.  Just one honest* question to the panel: Given known dev / publisher aspirations in your opinion is Hawken going to make it?  (Not do you want it to.  We all want it to.)

* Accepting panellists with vested interests will not be able to answer.  Duly excused.

I'm torn between wanting to be mad and expressing it and knowing how much it will be putting on 1 person they did keep and I respect.

But I guess I will go with:

Does this mean that all community aspects of the game will now be handled by the Adhesive team? If so, how long before we have more than 1 community dev. As I think they would have moved everyone if they could have afforded it right now.

Also

With this double step backwards with the game. While the coding is continuing to move forward, how is Meteor going to help at this point? What will their reduced role be now? As my issue is not with Adhesive but the Meteor company. It is an odd feeling that I want to stick around for Adhesive but want to leave because of Meteor and their obvious lack of understanding of how to run their company and support a game. This is a first that I've experienced this and am not sure how to feel about it.



All in all, I am one step from just not playing this game anymore. It is only the respect of what this game could become and Adhesives work that is keeping me here (and Zamboni, but he is ADH now thankfully). I can say that I am no longer interested in going to any PAX showing as it is typically just Meteor run events. I'm done with supporting that side of this game until they show something worth supporting. Meteor... you screwed up someplace. I hope you figure things out quickly for the sake of Adhesive and their potentially awesome game. Because as it stands, it feels like you have no concern about treating the players right with the way you treat the community devs. It really is a reflection of your feelings about us as well.

Hmm guess I did just let it out. Sorry ZC.

Most of the time I'm just cute. The rest of the time I am killing you.

Fair point.  Everyone has different benchmark.  Could offer my own definition but don't want to supply a bias.  Leave it to respondents to define their own benchmark.

Honestly, I am more and more thinking that it won't. I could give you the reasons as to why I think so, but I'm not in the mood to have someone decimate any point I make.

Get your hard on.
