I like the game mode. But definitely not love it.
I also like the new skills and their trees. But definitely not love em.
I also don’t have many skill points to spend in the new trees, for bonuses not as good as the ones on other trees (depends on character).
So here’s a random idea i had. How about mixing all of this into ARMS RACE?
Add a way to obtain secondary skill points exclusive to arms race, like a second EXP bar, or Tree Tokens as random drops like legendaries do, required to extract!
As many points as your tree allows
Then, make the new trees and skills available in ARMS RACE (even for non-owners, as a way to try them out?) so we have a controlled place to go bananas with them.
They’re not even game breaking like a default Iron Bear is anyway. Except the MNTIS cannon i guess.
And outside of ARMS RACE, half of these skill points (or a fixed limit, like 10) are available to use for your builds so you can get the new sweet bonuses without sacrificing your favorite build.
As much as i love the new skills in concept, their effectiveness is meh at best. Again, except the MNTIS. And it pains me to play ARMS RACE without them. Its the perfect ground to mess around with them. Maybe up the enemy health a bit to make up for the addition, as well.
