  • Ghost massively overpowered

    The ghost class is ridiculously overpowered. I'm seeing high level ghosts get 40k damage in a war against mediocre opponents.

    I'm no leader board whore, but I've all but given up of ever taking a spot if any ghosts in my empire join.

    You see them with overkill and crit hits getting 5k damage on a single hit and I just think screw it. I'm a reaper, and there are no high powered attacks at all. There's no competition. I feel like a peasant.

    If I see a ghost with less than 30k damage, I know they had a shitty war... Which quite frankly is ridiculous! 30k damage should be impressive. No other class can touch that. (Apart from sniper obviously, or a greedy sin)

    Are you hoping that no ghost shows up on your team so that you can win the leaderboard? Is that your priority?

        Re: Ghost massively overpowered

        No I didn't say that.

        I don't ever get the leader board anymore as a reaper. But I'd like the chance to do so once in a while. However if a ghost joins, I'm guaranteed not to.

        Hell, even if they join half way through the war they'll still destroy the leader board. You can't tell me that's fair on other classes...

        Tier 1 classes were balanced but Tier 2 screwed that all up nicely. Well I say tier 2, its only ghost that ruins it for everyone else. The other tier 2 classes are well balanced.

          I'd be happy if my teammates were putting out numbers like you describe. That would mean more wins which is more CC. Remember, if your empire loses you don't get any bonus CC for being on leaderboards and you also get ~60% CC vs a win. Besides, the point of being in an empire is to be a team, not some solo dude that gets lots of CC which is only useful for eve.

            Re: Ghost massively overpowered

            I'd be very happy with those number too lol, but its like complaining that a class is doing the job that its meant to be doing, a ghosts primarily function is to do damage and as much as possible. Its like complaining that a titan is doing his job too well.

              The other classes have other skills that help an empire's EvE, ghosts don't have other skills because they only have 1 job. Hit targets and hit hard.
              U could make ur own empire and call it "🚫no ghosts allowed🚫" if ur against ghosts that much haha. Or b glad to have ppl in ur empire that hit really well and contribute towards a victory.
              Sidenote: If ur empire has high lvls that sit and poach mediocre oponents that sounds like an empire problem and not a ghost class problem.

                Re: Ghost massively overpowered

                How does it sound like my main priority if I say I'd like to hit the board every once in a while. It is NOT my main priority at all, if it was I would have quit this game ages ago...

                Ignore the board for a moment, it's beside the main point. The fact is that the class is unfairly overpowered. It leaves other classes in the dust. The game should be balanced to make every class desirable.

                If I hadn't already invested so much time in sin/reaper I would without a doubt choose the ghost class.

                I get that ghost is meant to hit hard, but can't any of you admit its overpowered. Cmon 5k in a single hit... There was a 7k hit in the last war I attended. That's absurd.
                2k hits fine, when all the variables stack in your favour a 2k hit should be a sweet reward. If a sin is lucky they might be able to get that on a charged frenzy with a critical hit. Ghosts right now get that probably 10+ times or more a single war. Maybe a little less, but at least a couple guaranteed.

                I don't think it should be nerfed completely, just toned down a bit.

                Please stop making this about the leader board, it's only a small grievance to a bigger issue.

                  Ghost is definitely OP ( in terms of damage dealt ) but that's how the class is meant to be i guess. We have other threads debating Ghost as well. As regards to the leader board... It depends on how powerful a player is i think and not just the class ( i have seen different classes take up leader board so many times ).

                    Leaderboard - 4-6 extra class coins a war. If that is what you want, join a low level empire and own the board.

                        If you think Reaper is a poor relation to Ghost, OMG, try playing as a Turdminator!!! BTW it is nice once in a while to get on the leaderboard. We've got a Ghost who get's all the bonuses with the exception of demo. A heavy gets that, because I'm only a Turdminator.

                          Dr death, your maths is broken. A good leader board haul can net me 60+ extra cc. Regardless, I've said that the leader board is not at all the main focus of my point at all, so please stop bringing it up. This is about an overpowered class.

                            You are right, my top leaderboard winner gets nearly double what I do. It's not the leaderboard that interest me, but if a class can progress so much faster (in terms of CC's) then that seems a little unfair.

                              What you're not realizing cocaine is the reason people think you're complaining about not making the leaderboard is because, regardless of intent, that's the way you're posts sound. Boohoo you can't make the leaderboard anymore. Every class has advantages. Learn to use them.
