Some good and seemingly bad changes in there.
Nerfing the fire team's ability to bunny hop constantly is definitely a great change, as is reducing that insane knife damage they could do to the Predator, along with reducing overall ammo and health stations around the map and knocking the number of ones you could bring into a match by 1.
Increasing the amount of time it takes for reinforcements to come in is good too, but by how much? Having some actual numbers there would be helpful, like other games' patch notes often have.
Likewise increasing the amount of damage that Scouts and Hunters can take should help make those classes (especially Scout) more viable. Having boars light up on target scan is also great, since I think I've found maybe 2 in the full game up until now. And a "blinding flash" for second wind is an odd but hopefully effective way of making that a little less of a death sentence, especially as Berserker.
But then they went and made some weird, unnecessary changes like nerfing fully-charged plasma caster damage. Given how long you had to hold it, and how difficult it can be to get a hit on, I feel like a one hit down with a good trade-off for giving your position away and using so much energy. Given that they buffed Scout to make him a bit better with this patch it seems strange to then to and nerf one of his best tools, and one of the best tools the Predator has in general for being able to down people with any consistency.
And of course nerfing the combistick, but not buffing any of the other melee/close-range weapons. The reason so many people use it (other than it just being a cool Predator weapon) is because it was the only melee weapon that was actually good. I'd legit forgotten the plasma pistol was even in the game until just now. Depending on how bad they've made it now, I feel like melee could be even worse now than it was before. They need to make the bad weapons good, not the one good weapon bad.
Also reducing the number of AI enemies as well as the timer on certain missions means the fire team should be able to finish them even quicker than they already could, which was another big problem that was often the reason so many people felt the need to just rush in and try to kill everyone as quickly as possible. I don't see why they figured that was a good idea. If anything it should have been the opposite.
Looking around though it also seems like this patch still doesn't fix the "new item notifications" bug on the menu even though it says it does, so my ocd is going to continue to make me suffer until they finally get that right.
With any luck the fire team nerfs (mainly to stamina) should hopefully be enough to make things at least a little
more balanced than they were but some of these changes don't make much sense to me.
