i can kill people with brawler.
but, can you realize that if i'm start use G2-CRT i can increase my final score twice...
just right now i'm specially start play against nubs on TV or vanguard, and they will greatly regret that I do not play on the brawler. I promise that they will suffer more than ever before.
as for brawler, he got a great nerf. now he can survive 1-2 TOW in face less (based on some damage which you get from enemies primary weapon). it is a great nerf, especially for flak-brawler. not for SA-brawler.
it is all about previous devs brawler vision. brawler always be like "Huge HP, but nothing else". at least, give him 850 hp for g2, because +10 HP is a very "ultimate" stats. 850 can be good i think.
We'll see if data aligns up with what you are saying. Players who had a MMR of 2000 or higher always favored the scout and typically had most of their kills on players 800 or more MMR difference than their MMR.
The brawler was a close second.
you statistic is quite sux c05.
if you trying to play in random, you wil notice, that they are only players which playing on it. because like i say, newbie player suffer A LOT when they trying to play at brawler. you can also notice, that the brawler is a very rare mech in random. 90% time any match have a vanguard, raider, assult, incinirator, tech, infiltrator, bers, rockee.
most of time when i play on brawler, i'm the only one brawler in both team.
at the same time, if 2000+ player use other mech with insane DPS instead brawler, the difference in score can be much higher, for example. due the mechs like Bers or TV killing people X2 faster, don't spent time to overheat, and can shoot from any range without problems.
incinirator + tech still cause much more problems, than brawler + tech, due the highest DPS, and no heat. but it is still not nerfed/changed (it should be done a year ago, when players talk about it). instead you nerfed brawler.
should i notice, that since 2012 brawler always got nerf. always. i don't know any other mech in game which always got nerfs everytime.
and fuzzy bunnyng brawler STILL DONT HAVE ABILITY! and the sustain weapons still great in terms of whole match time and general effeciency in a 6vs6.
brawler always be imba 1vs1, i can agree with this, but not in 6vs6, where brawler always suffer from his own teammates, overheat, and speed, (especially now, when he can't moving fast like boost+dodge, due the 1.7 sec dodge c/d which is also hidden speed nerf for brawler after patch), if we not talk about origin or uptown.
the second thing about brawler (my own opinion) - this mech is very interesting to play for me, because you should deal with his many disadvantages. you should stay at position before enemies. you can't change positions fast, and if you got situation 1vs2, you deal with it. you can't runaway, all what you can do is retreat and shooting with flak/tow, and hope that your teammates goes to help you (which is 50/50 in random), deal with super small range, deal with high flak overheat, deal with low DPS, deal with big and open maps, because if enemy with higher DPS catch you in a open space, you dead. some mech are also can over DPS you from 5m range, just because flak-cannon now is not a "scaryest" weapon as it should be against many of sustain weapons.
it is a things, which i don't care when i playing G2-TV. i just shooting, and if i'm overheat, i press F. if team leave me alone, i press shift+s and runaway (if i want). and i know, that i can over DPS many mechs because SMC is good. all of this is not a problems, if you are not in brawler.
