Young runner feels real sluggish, not sure if it's in my head though.

Drone hugger combat is suddenly very viable, I see them doing it all the time. It feels like drones are much faster now.
Drones with frenzy are sonic fast, it is very silly.
I am fairly sure that a drone with frenzy is faster than a runner of equal evolution up until maybe elite.

Played xeno. Sentinel. A young sentinel is faster than a mature runner. I ran side by side to get a host and I ran faster than it.

hunters seem a bit slow, dunno what their normal speed is but I was able to evade one for roughly half a minute quite easily before some marines came and saved me.

I played xeno again and noticed it: the main difference is in frenzy. It has been made infinitely more powerful. Not that I mind, it used to be pretty crap.

I like the change.

Anybody know when movement is going to be fixed for hunters, and others, because I believe others are pretty buggy as well, like runner and maybe b-18?

It's getting boring not being able to play hunter anymore because of how slow they are. I feel about as fast as ravager was before the movement update.

Frenzy is crazy strong right now because of the movement changes I think. Like, blast out your ass so fast you can't even handle fast right now. So strong that I say it makes up for lone xenos like hunters and runners being slower before ancient. Maybe some team work between them and classes that give off pheromones will grow out of this?

I really have a feeling people are blindly talking without any clue of what was and what with.

Right now; xeno are a tiny bit slower than the usual unless for the runner as ancient.
Queen is slower but still faster than a marine when charging, especially on frenzy that WAS buffed.

Oh and I was oneshotted at 5 tiles as ancient runner once, so no, it's supposed to be that weak BUT powerful solo, I presume. Mostly only elite or ancient though.

I've been playing around with runner and this might just be mind tricks, but it seems like there's very little movement increase from young -> mature -> elite, until you get ancient when suddenly you are super speedy.

Also, I might be going crazy, but I feel like emitting frenzy as a drone at least, slows YOU down.
