Nums said in Why is it bad to buy guns early?:
They are profiting off of having overpowered high ranking weapons. No wonder they don't like to balance them.
StyLiS' priority isn't even anywhere remotely close to "profiting". They want to make updates that the community would like. They make a gun, they have to make it to satisfy their community. If they cannot unlock it, it's their choice to buy it. The Consumer's decision to purchase something in-game has nothing to do with StyLiS because that's their decision, not StyLiS'. Just remember, as mar's image quotes, that the rank that the gun is set to isn't relative to how overpowered a gun is.
Balances are made to guns based on how the community discuss and mention to StyLiS about. This is very commonly seen on the subreddit and on discord. I also noted that you only joined the discord not even a week ago, which may give some of us an understanding to why you would assume that they are profiting off these weapons and do not like to balance them.
P.S. When I say "They want to make updates that the community would like.", I meant they follow what the next gun should be on this 300 gun weapon list and they pick out a gun they would want to create which makes the community quite excited on how the gun will fare.
