Specialists are overpowered, I understand that. I also understand that nexon probably makes a fair amount of money from selling vipers and medkits in the blackmarket. If gp specialists are taken out of the game, some of the specialists will be gone, with no harm to nexon's income.

But a GP Viper costs 40K GP a month. I don't think many people would buy it.

Specialists just need a slightly larger hitbox Very Happy

There are people who buy GP specs, just not many. I agree on the hitbox issue, but I'm not sure if nexon will ever give into the hitbox problem.

Taking away GP specs would be stupid. Seeing as they are the only people that actually EARN their overpowered-ness. That would be like taking away the DSR-1, TPG-1, M107CQ, and M200 GP versions and leaving only the NX versions.

I don't think those snipers are OP, I think if you aim you should be rewarded with a kill. I simply don't think you should be able to earn or buy OP items, however I understand nexon needs to sell things.

Why take them out? Let the people that rank up and get them use them, they earned it.
Personally I don't care about specs one bit, there are other problems I'm concerned with anyway.

So then semi-snipers should be awarded 2 Kills?
The TPG is OP in the sense that it takes very little effort to score a kill, it posses the ability to 1HK for a great distance. It also posses the greatest amount of accuracy for a 1HK, not to mention the NX-Standard is available with a high-magnification scope. I'm going off topic though.

Why would you take out the GP specs?
Theres no advantage in doing so. There is only disadvantages for free users, granted there much to expensive for the GP price.

Rebalancing something is always better than removing something.

Embrace difference.

I am undifferent on this discussion.

My only comments.

1. This would just be taking away another advantage GP users have against NX users, and this is an expensive advantage too.

2. The people that got specs using GP actually earned it, ranking up, trying hard. Do the people that buy them using NX deserve it as much? Certainly not.

3. Why would you want to do this anyways? If anything, take away NX specs.

The reason I would want to do this is because specialists are in almost every game, and there are more and more people that are high ranks. I am a 2nd Lt, but I will not buy a specialist with gp nor with NX simply because they are unfair.

specialists are obviously unbalanced and I thought that taking out gp versions would reduce the number of total specialists we have, with no harm done to nexon's wallet. Nexon needs money and there's no sense denying that.

I do like haz's idea of rebalancing the whole specialist thing but I question whether nexon would listen to that.

Well, what makes a spec so good?

Smaller hitbox - added speed boost without decrease is armour - ability to wield spec weapons.

If we could make the hitbox of Viper larger, to that of Scorpion/Hawk, I think it would be fair. Specs will still have a great advantage over normal players, speed + no armour decrease but it won't be that difficult to take down a spec if your aim is decent.

OR what if we tried rebalancing them? Make them say, have 1.5 the hitbox somehow?

I think the hitbox shouldn't be increased too drastically. 1.5x is a little too much.

Maybe 1 inch bigger than their body size?

0.0

By body size, are you referring to males?

Umm...
Just give specs the same hitbox as the default male?

Anyway Nexon might not lose money by taking out the Gp specs but if they do that it will make them look really, really bad. They would basically be saying "Specs are for Nx only now so you have to give us more money if you want them".

I still don't think specs are drastically over powered. Simply give them a larger hitbox and I would have no problem. Like I said same as default male would probably work.
