I respect the choice of those who do PvE and RP so respect those who do PvP.
If FE is not a PvP game then it is neither a PvE or RP game. Who are you to decide? More tastes are in the game better it is.
This game offered a unique combat experience, that boxing fight feel with pistols.
It is often those who have lack of openness who give lessons, and are unfortunately most often heard.
When I hear that we should only have the arena of balanced or be reduced to play shotgun you don't understand anything. You close the door to open world and variety of gameplay it's the worst thing.
The arenas can be just as unbalanced as the open world. It is not only a question of numbers but of who is fighting, where and why. Turning in an arena is cool 5 minutes. And what is better to win a fight lost in advance?
Also that the difference between a male and female toon is not huge is that you really haven't fought and played the game and you can stay mediocre for years.
There is a huge difference, maybe 30% also accentued by the ping and the fact that you don't one or two shot. (Probably why this guy talked about the shotgun) You need a string of successful shot with pistols.
We should not be reduced to play what is efficient but what we like while having all our chances.
I understand that a lot of people don't like "The Division" solution, it's not even my favourite but it's not that shocking when you play it (far less than the picture) and you don't even notice it right away.
There remains the "APB" solution.
The disadvantage comes more from the width of the hitbox than from the height.
