A little late to the party, and I know everyones saying it.Champions and they couldn't pull out ONI warthogs or Sword Needler Hogs which are hard counters. You have to understand wasp swarms are costly, and it actually happens rarely in standard warzone games. I rarely see more than 2 at a time of all variants, but early game its rare to even see a single standard wasp in the first minutes of the game.
Wasps, wasps, & wasps. After watching some of the streams of the warlords playlist it became more obvious than ever. The beginning of every game (which is the funnest part imo) has devolved into a horde of wasps trapping even the most skilled players in their armory/bases. I watched Snip3down run w/ a lobby full of pros and champ level players. Even they couldn't do a thing when the enemy came at them w/ 6 wasps. They were laughing it was so out of hand and ended up quitting out.
Please up the req cost by at least 1 point.
Anything is dog if you have lots of it, wasps, ghosts, gun gooses, banshees they're all dog if a lot of them are pulled out.
Making the standard wasp go up in 1 req point hurts lone pilots hard, it would be better to just have a vehicle cap for the wasp for the first few minutes of the game.
Um... no. Hogs are not Hard counters to the wasp. If anything, they are soft counters, because one well placed missile shot can instantly kill the gunner.
Also, with ghosts/hogs/etc, they actually have hard counters. (Splinter turret, Caster, and Plasma pistol) With the wasp, those projectiles are next to useless, as the wasp just needs to stay near teammates and move around.
See that caster shot? I thinking it's going to kill... Oh.. it did next to no damage because the wasp moved around and the rest of the shots fell to the ground? How unfortunate.... Even if you hit the wasp with that thing, you're not doing a substantial/good amount of damage that warrants in using the req for a hard counter, as you'll only get one shot in when fully charged up, and the rest of them (the explosions afterwards) fall to the ground.
