Take away the energy bonus, reduce the ballistics C/D, cut the Gauss C/D buff of at the knees then throw in a C/D increase on Gauss across the board and I feel like I got shafted when I bought the stupid thing.
Just get rid of the gauss C/D and give it a flat ROF increase to ballistics at 30%. At least compensate us for the loss of our energy C/D's as it stands I have no reason to run it after the patch goes live and thus I will probably not be spending more money on hero mechs since it will get ruined by a PGI "rebalance" pass.
The 4G and 4P got the love hammer. Even the 4sp got more love than the GI. Look at those structure quirks on it. Plus that shiny 30% missile C/D.
The Grid Iron on the other hand gets shafted with a worthless hodgepodge of quirks.
30% energy range increase.... But they lose the Energy cooldowns completely and they had 3 to begin with. 0 range increases on Ballistics.
Maybe PGI should give M/C refunds to anyone that owns the POS to compensate them and see how many people actually want to buy it again after it gets nerfed into the ground.
Not only the GI is garbage, but all hero's are almost garbage.
This is what i found garbage:
Garbage out of the box. I regret i bought it.
They removed the 1 useful quirck Ballistic Range and MG ROF.
I really liked the setup how it was before. Running 6x MG with LPL is fun.
Now its sitting next to the DAKKA BJ-1DC which has much better Ballistic quirks.
Nerfed Gauss + Nerfed Mech = Garbage. Nerfing gauss in general is fine by me. Because it was much needed.
But nerfing this mech makes it underwhelming now...
Nerfed balistics. Ok, slightly boosted its right arm in the upcoming patch, so need to check this out.
But to me, running an AC20 in YLW made it unique and fun.
Who uses the Orion anyway. Barely see it on the battlefield.
And with the Marauder coming the Orion will be an UNSEEN mech.
Its future became slightly brighter after the PTS changes. But still, I don't see the Cataphract that much on the battlefield.

Good mech, see it quite often in CW matches. Loads of hardpoints, but again META laser vomit whats not really my play-style.
For me this is a clear sign that I won't be buying hero mechs anymore. Other non-paywalled mechs are much better and efficient. Why should I pay for a cbill-boosted mech when I can grind more Cbills in 1 match with non-paywalled mechs, this is just stupid
. I think PGI is to scared to get the "Pay-to-Win" label.
