The main thing that needs to go are heat controls. Here's a tip taciosft. Dont make staples mythicals. Ever. If you're going to nerf these instead of removing them, then make then legendaries. Make them give like 10 - 12 less cooling each or something. Also even if these werent mythicals and everyone had 'em, even then they'd give too much cooling. It's super boring. Making everyone use the regen and cooldown module was much better tbh. Needing 135 - 140 cooling is ridiculous. But if you do keep em then meh whatever.
Next is the items that give a lot of heat.
The axes and lava sprays need to be nerfed if the cooling modules are nerfed, duh.
Next thing is torsos. Make the older ones playable so not everyone needs god mode. God mode could use a small nerf, if not be eliminated OR completely changed
. It has good health AND good stats? Pick one or make it even heavier. I know it's ur moneymaking flagship but as addressed on here: viewtopic.php?f=409&t=75439
it's hurting the game too much. There shouldnt be just one or two good torsos to play. Okay 3. Only 3 mythical torsos are playable. But really only one is the best option by far, that's also the problem. The power balance between god mode and other torsos makes God mode a staple. A torso should never be a staple. There should be options.
The other torso that is a HUGE problem is Diamond shell. It should be buffed tho, I think it can still be playable, and doesnt need to be removed. But as it stands it is a horrible torso. More health might do the trick.
Next thing is the electrocop/firewatch and Metal blender. No one uses these ok? Only noobs who have nothing better to play. These things suck terribly and see no play. Don't even try buffing them, these things are a lost cause. Just remove them.
Same thing Needs to be said for the drainers. They used to be relevant. What the hell happened? Why are there so many useless items? This goes back to slowly down the damn game state.
If any mythicals are removed just refund players about 150 - 220 tokens per item removed. Yes I'm aware it seems like a very extreme
step, but it's honesly the best way to fix it. Especially with items like heat controls. They cannot be mythicals. Staples should be accessible to everyone. Make them legendary items if they're that good, but NEVER a mythical item.
Post anything else I missed. Keep in mind some items just need a buff or nerf. I'm talking about the ones that are beyond fixing, or are staples.
