I just played a game as fireteam where with randoms (so you all know how that goes) and we went up against a scout pred so I thought “oh he is gonna stay at range and snipe at us, so dont get to close” BUT NOPE he just ran in with a katana like some sort of Idiot and proseded to kill us one by one, WE WERE ALL SHOOTING AT HIM AND HE STILL SURVIVED AND GOT A QUICK CLAIM!
I know that the normal thing here is that predetor needs to be buffed and that fireteam has it easy, but when a scout can survive 4 fireteam members shooting at him that is where I have an issue, if a pred dumbrushes a fireteam they should just get erased (dont @ me pred mains because I know you will hate this) they would have to need to be smart, even the berserker should not be able to get a claim from playing like a moron, the fireteam only have their numbers but right now that does not mean SHIT, because the pred just dont die and we cant punish him from being stupid, and he gets rewarded for this shit with a free claim that we can do nothing about.
I have seen all you pred main complain about fireteam useing cheap tactics like camping but as someone who plays fireteam mostly I can safely say that it is our only option if we want to take down a pred, WE NEED TO CHEESE because otherwise we just cant kill you unless you truely fuck up.
and I know that if you just reduce the preds health then it will be to easy I get that, but a scout should not be able to survive a full fireteam shooting at him and still get a claim, because then we basicly have to camp to do anything (as I have said)
and I have even played as a scout pred myself (because imo anyone that uses the high health preds dont know how to survive without it) and even I feel dirty with how easy it is to get claims, one time I had a guy blasting me in the back with a shotgun from behind when I was at about half health, AND I STILL GOT AWAY WITH IT!
I dont know what can be done, because if they nerf the preds health then the pred mains will start to complain, and if they do nothing then us fireteam members have to camp whenever the pred shows up otherwise we die and then they complain about that, its a lose-lose
and before I end this please know that I am quite heated right now because of the match I was just in, because I do not think it is fun that I have to cheese the pred in order to get a chance at scareing the pred away (but most likely just annoying him into leaving us alone) and I do understand how annoying it must be for you pred mains who have to deal with it but there is a reason not many people play FT, because we depend so much on our random teammates and if you get stuck with a bad team then you have already lost.
normaly I would try to make a list about how it could be made better but I have no idea, because as said if you nerf the pred then the camping is gonna become stronger and the pred players will complain, but if you buff the pred to combat the camping cheese then the FT will just become more unfun to play so as said they are at a lose-lose here with no chance of winning because of the choises they have made in the past with this game, and it just makes me so sad.
if you made it this far thanks for reading, I know that you may disagree with me but please try to keep it civil if you want to comment because I dont want to argue, I just want to have my voice heard about a game that I love and hate at the same time, but if you want to comment then I will do my best to also talk when I have cooled off more
