It seems many people weren't satisfied with the recent balance adjustments for Gunners. Sega is sorry for the disappointment this may have caused, as they felt they weren't sufficient enough in explaining the shifts in fighting style for Gunners.
Sega will however remain firm in their plans of keeping the following:
Gunners should still be able to fight, even without having to rely on S-Roll JA Bonus.
Gunners should be positioned as a class that focuses on close to mid-range combat.
While they were re-examining the effects of the recent update, they noted how difficult it was to maintain Perfect Keeper; how likely it was to get hit when fighting close to mid-range.
With the sentiments that the nerfs made a higher impact than the buffs, they decided on a course of action. The plan is to do readjustments to the Photon Arts, and relax the activation conditions for Perfect Keeper. However, please be forewarned that mid to long-distance damage may end up weaker. They'll discuss more details about these adjustments at a later time.
Here are some examples of close to mid-range fighting styles you can use:
(If enemies are in front)
Use Dead Approach to get closer and attack them with Satellite Aim. Draw them in with Reverse Tap, and attack them with Shift Period.
(If enemies are scattered around)
Use Reverse Tap to draw them in and attack them with Heel Stab/Shift Period.
These are just some examples on how you can play. You can also try them out after the adjustments.
Sega asks for your cooperation in investigating the server load.
Sega is once again conducting a detailed investigation into the server load. They will need to temporarily implement some special settings that may result in some lag. They apologize for the inconvenience this will cause.
