tongpo.3184 Posted October 2, 2017 Share Posted October 2, 2017 The real issue with DE IMO, isn't the limitations with kneeling, but rather how bad standing is. They wanted to make kneeling a "thoughtful decision"... but the issue is that standing with a rifle is so bad that you pretty much always want to be in sniper mode despite the issues you know what comes with kneeling. Standing right now is just a waste of initiative because the damage is so bad that there isn't really a decision to be made. The current thought process with Rifle is... looking for a good spot to kneel... until than, don't have the rifle out.... and that to me is just wrong.For the most part, sniper mode abilities should be standard for DE. This way, you won't feel like you are wasting initiative by using abilities in standing. Kneeling should offer other utilities like, range increase from 1500-1700 (because a sniper gun should really out distance a long bow... just saying), auto attacks pierce, and using abilities will refund 1 initiative if they hit.This way while there is a clear buff to kneeling, I won't feel like I have to be kneeling. Kneeling will actually be a thoughtful decisions, not a mandatory one. Overall, I also feel that damage needs a buff across the board also, but really, I see no reason why Standing mode vs sniper mode should be different abilities.... kneeling should just offer different utilities.
