Javelin is probably as good as she’s gonna get without a full major rework tbh. There’s only so many ways you can try to fit a rocket launcher merc into an otherwise high TTK game. Who cares if she can easily blow up the EV either, there are so many other mercs that can do it, do we really need another who does the exact same thing with a slight spin?
And javelin as she was on release? You’re really complaining about that? It was an absolute nightmare. Her ammo ability was leaps and bounds over everyone else, and hell, you don’t even need to destroy the EV when everyone on the enemy team is instagibbed because the rocket launcher was such a meme. So yeah, they were right to nerf her. And it wasn’t just noobs calling for that either.
Regardless, even if noobs were the only ones who wanted a change, that’s still a problem. Games are about more than just what’s balanced, they’re about what’s fun. If all of your casual players absolutely hate something, a rework probably isn’t a bad idea. Of course you don’t want to make things too casual, but considering the significant drop in player population after javelin was released, it’s probably not a bad idea to at least pay attention to these complaints.
Nader needing nerfs? Even after the last one? She’s basically a nerfed version of fragger already. Her grenades are so painfully easy to dodge that the only way she can really kill you is either by a direct hit, which is no worse than fletcher’s direct hits, or by managing to corner you. And at that point, she deserves the kill.
Sure she can spam grenades, but she’s also extremely vulnerable while she does it. Her grenades are more for flushing people out than anything, which really isn’t so bad.
Coming from someone who mains squishy mercs, she’s fine. Just strategize like you would against any other merc.
