Game Difficulties are out of wack and builders keep getting nerfed
Builders keep getting nerfed, patch after patch (look at the Ravager, it's completely worthless to use now). There was also some pointless capacity changes for some mods, which didn't seem needed. Plasma sentinel got nerfed for the 3rd or 4th time, which didn't seem needed either.
But my main issue with the balance is to do with the base ratings.
In the mid-sector update the devs fixed some difficulty bugs, which has inadvertently made it impossible to make good normal and dangerous Outposts, you can't put hardly any traps or guards in without the rating going up. All of my normal outposts became dangerous and all my dangerous outposts became brutal, even though they're clearly no where near what I'd class as dangerous or brutal.
And no I'm not talking about the plasma spam or laser spam bases, i'm talking about just regular bases, not ones that were spamming one trap or trying to exploit the difficulty in some way.
If you go raid my base called "Rudd" (it's on social, my steam user is the same as here) you'll see the game counts it as being brutal despite the fact that it's no where near brutal and I even removed a load of the traps and a couple guards to try and get it back down to dangerous, but that doesn't work, so the base is effectively ruined due to nerfing the difficulties so much. Did I mention it has a 3 KD?
The difficulty rating currently massively over-values traps placed on the harvester path, this should not be the case. The difficulty ratings of traps over paths seem to be double or triple the danger rating of the trap, which is way too much. It makes it impossible to build decent normal and dangerous bases because the difficulty ratings are far too strict now. And you can't just not place traps in the raiders way.
It's a massive balancing issue ever since some of the difficulty bugs were fixed. There's basically no point in trying to make normal and dangerous bases since it's near impossible to make decent ones now with how restricted you are in danger rating. may as well only buy large plots of land and make brutal bases on them now. That's how I feel about the bad danger balancing which came from these "fixes".
