It's been a long time since I've played Firefall. The game has now launched and it's kind of fun. Unfortunately they have taken the nerf bat to my Bastion "Mobile Fortress" class. The turrets do not have enough health to survive an onslaught by high level monsters. It was my main class to play because I loved mobile defense and support roles. The launch patch basically renders the class ineffective at end game.
As a result I'm now levelling my Fire Cat. I always did love the Assault advanced frame. It was nerfed a bit but not as much as the Bastion.
