@harbringar: I finished it. I actually thought the second area (after the tutorial) was the toughest in the game purely because your character is weaker and I was still finding my footing with the game's mechanics. Once I discovered that you can win the vast majority of fights by simply getting the first hit in, the whole game became a lot easier.

@lionheartssj1: Hey, I'm on your side! I love FFVIII. It's just worth adding some context considering the game's 20 years old at this point.

@xnshd: I wouldn't call the game more balanced when we're talking about an overpowered weapon type. And like I said below, I'm not great at building so this meta doesn't affect me as much as it has others. If anything, lowering the skill gap means I'm racking up more kills, but I can't say it's more enjoyable than it was before because a lot of fights are too predictable now.

@ZIMdoom: The SMGs just benefit from bloom more than any other weapon. They shoot faster, often have larger magazines, and they're good at both short and medium ranges. It's too easy to pick up kills with them, especially if you're facing someone who doesn't have an SMG of their own.

I agree that building shouldn't be as strong as it was, but it definitely shouldn't be as weak as it is now. I'm not that good at building either, but I also feel like I'm not getting any better at it since season 5 started, purely because as soon as I make anything it just gets shredded to pieces within a second or so. Finding the right balance is tough.

@mpl911: That's the literal translation from Spanish, but it basically means a head-on competition or duel.

The more you know.
