Ever since they opened up the fabricator I’m seeing an increase in dumb ■■■ base designs. I just did a Masters frenzy on overload and we only lasted 7 waves because others were placing the forts. I was engineer but except for the locker I built nothing. We had a lizzie and paduk building all the barriers. For some reason Paduk kept building lvl 1 sentries. They kept putting the barriers way out in the middle of the map where some of the taps spawn. I guess they wanted to speed run. The problem was things would spawn in that little dead end room off to the side behind us. It was far too spaced out. If one person got downed we had to run a country mile(while getting shot) to revive them. Paduk put three lvl 1 sentries behind the barriers. So close that they were almost on top of the barriers. A sire ran through them and he was close enough to melee them before getting through the fences. A complete waste of money IMO. Those sentries ran out of ammo so fast and it was a money pit to constantly refill them. There was nothing to fall back too. Once they got through there was nothing beyond those fences. If I had to give it my engineer’s opinion it was a base that was far too stretched out. The whole thing should have been pulled in closer to funnel mobs into kill boxes. Too many angles to cover, too many low lvl sentries without the income to support them.
This isn’t a one time thing. I’ve been seeing people put sentries literally right behind barriers to the front door. A single boomshot will blow those up. Why don’t people put them further back and at an angle so it isn’t being shot at?
Last I have seen a quality drop in master lobbies. Been seeing people build sentries first. Before I only saw people do that in Elite. Now I’m seeing it in Masters -.- It’s a sad lobby when Del builds 1 barrier then a sentry he upgrades. One entrance is completely unguarded and no locker.
Could be just my luck with randoms lately but since the fab opened up, everyone seems to think they are en engineer now. Sad thing is when they fix these exploits, these posers will get pimp slapped by reality.
