Its is the end of the season, thats why im asking and also it says in the rules that it will be re evaluated and now the famas will not go OP again because firstly this is dice not infinity ward and also now they weapon stats for the famas are more realistic and are in par with the other weapons.
Ok what im really saying is that dice have done a good job in nerfing the famas because now its become what it was made for and now its really a CQB assualt rifle. The actual famas stats wont change with another update but the attachments may change that can vary any guns OPness. Dice does a very good job with nerfing guns and not making mistakes with the guns although I cant speak for the attachments.
The fact you say its DICE not Infinity ward is completely irrelevant, everything in this game works on mathematical calculations and takes a lot of tweaks and touch ups to get stuff worked out smoothly.
To understand how future updates will work, just look at how many things i.e guns, game mechanics, vehicles and other kit load outs have gone back and forwards already.The SCAH for instance, it was OPed to begin with then powered down then giving a boost again, like I said they will test it out see people reactions and if the gun is as you say "crap" it will be updated in the upcoming patches.
I will look at it with the rest of the admin team but I will already be saying leave it out till we know what they are doing with it in he future, I would rather see a smooth season than have to go and re-ban a gun cause its OPed again.
