The Interceptor is balanced enough as it is

In the latest weekly update, we are told the Inteceptor is to be expecting some fairly major adjustments, with DeeJ telling us it:[quote]won’t be the menace that’s been chasing you into bases[/quote] The initial ideas for the nerfs these chunky vehicles of destruction are as follows: - Lower rate of fire. - Larger delay between shots. - Reduced rocket blast radius. - Shrinking the "arming shape" of the shots. - Only 2 each map, so teams can "fight over" them. Do you believe these nerfs are a good idea? Which do you agree/disagree with? Is the relatively slow speed and large, broad shape enough to weigh this battle mount down, or does it need a few fixes?

  • Kinda figured that's what they would do. I think it would have been fine if they just lowered fire rate and radius.

  • I always wreck with it. While it's immensely fun for me, I understand that in the right hands you are incredibly difficult to stop. You permanently oneshot everybody, you're faster than any Guardians on foot, you have great splatter potential, your shots are insanely accurate from long range, you have very rapid fire, and you can cap territories while still in the interceptor. To kill it you either need a Super (which a pilot can avoid by simply moving backwards and shooting you), a rocket (again, just keep distance), or a sniper (again, just keep moving). It's incredibly easy for a smart Interceptor Pilot to stay alive. It's definitely overpowered. I would have been fine either way- with or without a nerf. But as an Interceptor user myself, I can safely say I understand how powerful it really was.

    • They should delete all shitty vehicles in the crucibel... They are ruining the game... There a players who sit 24/7 in thosr shitty intercepts and camping A B and C with them. Just my 2 cents

    • While I think the interceptor is fine as it is, I was actually thinking that maybe just putting one on the Moon map would be better.

      • Might as well pull out every vehicle from the FWC vehicle PvP mode while at it. Because it will never stop with the nerfing.

      • They would be fine as they are if boarding was in the game. Now there's no way to counter them, therefore they need a nerf.

      • Lol. I love the interceptor as is. I was in a match where i had it, and someone sniped me off it. When i respawned i immediately went back to where I left it and pulled out my sniper rifle. Sure enough, the same guy comes around the corner riding MY interceptor. Needless to say, i was soon riding in style on my interceptor once again. Its not OP. The rider is vulnerable and the damn thing can be supercharged in one shot like anything else. Alas, all the wimpy baby kitty whiners have already ensured a nerf before release. Wtg.

      • I personally think they're fine. I've taken down countless interceptors with the turrets. But sure go ahead and make them even easier to take down :)
