They nerfed the Galaxy....for better or worse.


As many know the galaxy has been changed, 3 chain guns (20mm, light) now, and no back blind spot, also now 6 inf instead of 4. Now while more people and guns is good, well we nolonger have a ton of firepower that it once packed and all that. However now with chainguns i dont think there can be any dobt that some fool with a skeeter will get wasted attacking one (or 4 fools with skeeters for that matter, unless they ram it.) but now we dont have the powerful anti inf and tank weapons we had before. Thoughts? (other then comments about my bad grammer)

Nerf? We haven't released the game yet and we're being accused of nerfing already? Sheeeeeeeeesh. You guys are tough.



Anyway, the 20mm chainguns are actually a lot better than the 75mm cannons in almost every aspect where you would be flying the Galaxy. Using the Galaxy as a mounted gun platform to shoot at tanks would probably result in you losing a battle with those same tanks. And the chainguns are better versus infantry anyway.

The 75mm cannons were just too unwieldy to use. And it looked very strange to use indirect fire weapons from an aircraft. Plus, they were totally useless against air attackers.

So we changed them. But no way was it a nerf...even if we HAD released the game already.

i think its good.

take a comparative look at vehicles that perform similar jobs, such heavy lift helicopters. they dont carry anti tank weapons on board. they carry rapid fire, heavy caliber weapons to provide intense supressive into the enemy to allow time for the troops to disembark (more like haul their scared-shitless asses off ). then as it prepares to leave, it continues to lay suppressive fire into the enemy to let the troops move into position instead of leaving them out in a field to get ripped to pieces. then the vehicle will sometimes hang around a little while to help provide supporting fire

Smoky, a nerf is not always a bad thing in my opinion, for instance, i play everquest, and my main is a druid, and when anything happens to those necromancers or wizards (i cheered when manna burn was nerfed,) Im happy. And the Galaxy is proably better now cause you can get those skeeters and swat them, teach all those people that are going to try to use them as fighters. Also got rid of the blind spot so a skeeter or reaver can not sit back there and shoot us up, so this nerf was not a bad thing really, but a ok thing. The Galaxy is still king of the air.

I think its a bit too soon to say things have been "nerfed" considering its stage of development (beta) hehe. Personally sounds like a change for the better.. proably will be a bit more effective in defending itself air to air. I was about to post on this very subject.

dunno. I think it makes sense to change to the chainguns, but was surely looking forward to using a large ground attack aircraft as well.

perhaps they could give you an option?

Galaxy Dropship, 20mm
Galaxy Gunship, 75mm

maybe even a Galaxy Bomber?


just a thought or two

Bomber = Bad idea, but the choice bettween the two sounds good.

Of course we also now no for sure that a 75mm gun can do indirect fire, that means so can tnaks with those or better, thus if you want you can drive your tank up and bombard someone indictly, so its like artiliry, kinda.

well, bombing would be awsome, particularly useful for softening up an outpost for an assault
