I heard a rumor about LABs getting buffed in the future / beta.
Can anyone specify this for me please?

It's been added to fafbeta, so you can test it there.

The mech marine is already by far the strongest LAB.
The Heath decrease will not make its weapon worse.
Buildtime decreases and cost.
Yesterday I cilled a Selen, a Thaam and an Engineer with just one MechMarine

Also buffing its speed will make it even stronger xD 😄

@herzer99 i dunno pick you flavour.... 15 hp vs 5 mass and 0.2 speed... Id much rather have the hp...

from best lab to worst lab 😞

I guess the compensation is that strikers get big indirect buff now

How is mech marine the strongest lab? Both the other labs have a way easier time shooting and dodging since their entire body doesnt need to turn in order to fire.

The mech marine has the biggest microing potential and very few wastet dps

I think the hp on a lab do not really matter

@herzer99 its an extra shot from a striker... thats a pretty big difference from 4 shots down to 3 shots

comparable to the uef t1 arty being buffed by 5 hp... on paper thats nothing.. but thats an extra shot from a acu

also the aeon mech takes 2 shots from an acu to kill now... that's a massive difference
and almost double the hp of a mech for a mere 12 mass extra...

the mech sucks ass vs the aeon LAB now

I was talking about the mech having by far the best micro potential

Its cost us getting decreased and his speed increased that results into the mech marine beeing stronger in the way i like to use it

These changes look neat. Uef has better raiding optioms and Aeon has a lab tank combo. Also finally a mantis nerf.

Some math:
Name
DPS * HP/mass - approximation of unit strength per mass 1 vs 1
DPS * HP/mass^2 - approximation of unit strength equal mass N vs K (for big N and K) (not includes firing range)

Flare old -> new
43 -> 74
1.23 -> 1.76

mechmarine
49 -> 47
1.4 -> 1.55

hunter
39 -> 54
1.11 -> 1.54

mantis
140 -> 130
2.7 -> 2.32

striker and thaam (for compare)
129 and 130
2.29 and 2.4

The Flare will clearly beat other labs now but it is also the slowest and most expensive lab, so it should be balanced.
