First of all, I hope this is the right section for this type of thread, and I want to make a thread (and not a ticket) to receive more comments/perspectives on the matter.
So,today I was playing normally, TD, as usual,and another player was using envy spark and I realized something really weird... he would rarely hit me! And so did I with all other players! I had a very different memory of playing AGAINST a spark rifle.
Long story short : The other envy spark user tried , under my suggestion, the shootingstar instead. We could both see and confirm that there was a huge difference in terms of *hit* and *homing* funcionality. It actually worked and hit this time! I continued to use my envy spark rifle, and after a while playing against each other (with all the other players) the difference of hitbox was now very clear.
The main issue : envy spark homing funcionality is NOT working properly and as intended and it has a broken/bugged hitbox, while the normal spark rifle(shootingstar) has no problems at all and works as intended.
The first thought that crossed my mind was of course to report all of this,but in order to do so, I needed proofs! And so I made two videos, one in which I try the envy spark hitbox and one where I try the shootingstar hitbox.
I'll explain the videos.
I tried both sparks at 3 different distances : mid range, long range and close range.
The difference of hit amounts can be CLEARLY seen in mid and long range
There's not much else to explain, just see the videos! I'll answer any questions to help fix this issue, because yeah, I really hope it will get fixed and not ignored, since (like me) many people(maybe not a lot....lol) spent money on this weapon.
The characters had the same stats (day-based no enchant no chip ap sets,smart pack pet, hp+30,spark rifle fp)
The envy spark has actually better enchants (more def pierce, td atk etc, no relevant enchant in terms of hitbox)
P.S. : if there will be a fix, PLEASE, just don't replace the heart bullets D: just copy-paste the hitbox of the shootingstar and don't remove that lovely graphic effect on the bullets
