oh wow, now its a fancy hold and damage dealing thing, rather then a you are 100% helpless and thus dead device.

disabling weapons is redundant though, considering you have 0 perception lol


its still a super visually chaotic eye sore in pvp, weather its used on you or not.

I'm not saying it needs to be reduced further, it just seems odd considering the other changes to reduce this by that amount.
Sadly, it's not a completely accurate statement. The console's power description previously said 83.33% when it was actually reducing speeds by closer to 95%, except certain types of equipment and abilities...

It was standardized to not have those weird edge-cases, and simultaneously reduced to more reasonable figure.

So... the patch note may make it seem arbitrary, but it was written as such just to avoid additional confusion. And the necessity for explanations exactly like this one...

It's necessary for PvE, because NPC enemies don't treat Perception the same as players do.

Thanks for the clarification Bort.

If it's any consolation, guys like me love exactly these kinds of explanations.

How true? and agree with the above. There's always a work around and easy fix. I love PvPs but this just does not make sense. They are complaining about a console when the whole PvP maps are all dead since inception. No single upgrades done from 3 years for PvPs and its the same BORING designs...if they want to complain about something...they should take a look at what is more important rather than making a mountain out a mole...just an observation to keep things in perspective.
