Kixeye-no offense here but you can't be serious with the nerf. Did you even look at what you did in a real base? You essentially made it useless now. The firing arc is about 30% of what it was before. and the didnt decrease the minimum range YOU INCREASED IT. Even at my furthest point on my base I can't get it touch my land. This makes absolutely ZERO SENSE. This isnt a nerf-PERIOD. You may as well just take it back. It is of essentially no value now. Come on guys-You go from overpowered to useless. The firing arc was FINE!!!!! Just leave the thing the way it was and decrease the damage-that was ALL YOU NEEDED TO DO>
So, the silverstrike UAV and been reduced from 70 thousand damage to 35 thousand damage. Kixs, you have made this UAV useless. The current UAV for regular turrets Lucandea does 59,398 damage. So, it makes the Silverstrike useless since it does less damage than the older UAV. What sense does that make KIxeye? I have done spent 20,000 points to get the Silverstrike that does 70,000 damage and you all go and change the stats to it to make it useless.
With all the changes kix has made to the new Silverstrike UAV turret I have crunched the numbers and here is what I have found.
The damage you can get with all bonus, and boosts currently in game is 202,641. This still makes it more damage than the heavy scatters, thunderclap rockets and non-critical thunderlord mortars. The major drawback now is the range, reload and firing arc.
The range is now 290 - 450, the minimum range is now so bad a savvy hitter can almost avoid it by hugging land right up to your channel entrance.
Reload after the Fire support 10% boost is a slow 12.6
The firing arc is now 90 degrees.
I'm afraid to say that after the kix nerf despite the dmg not being terrible, it appears the new UAV turret is effectively useless. All the other lower damage turrets will inflict more damage over time than the few, if your lucky, shots any UAV's will get.
So in my opinion don't go out of your way to get this turret installed in your base. Kix may see a little sense and re-adjust some stats back up a little as there is already a lot of complaining so this may all change.
I want to make it clear, this is just my opinion, use the information here to decide for yourselves if you want the turret.
