Came up against bouncer rush yesterday, question is how the hell does it work? Taking into account from the money necessary to send out dozens of waves and cooldown for bot spawn I just don't see how it's possible. PS It's totally OP.

You'd be able to get two straight off the bat, then another one shortly after. If you manage to kill anyone you'd get the money from that and taunting gets you $50.

I think it heavily relies on kills to sustain it so if your team manages to kill them before they do anything then whoever is spawning puts themselves behind.

Arent they pretty easy to kill? Use grapple.
Otherwise go on the upper levels.

Bouncers are pretty annoying, but generally I find bot spawns not be that OP... but I play Assassin almost always, so other classes may be suffering more than me. Assassin usually rips through anything easily, the bouncer grab being the only real bot spam threat to fear.

It does need to be changed though, I don't think it's a very cool tactic to just spam bots... and not actually play the game, it defeats the whole point of playing the game imo.

Longer cooldowns, cost increase or less bots should be considered.

yeah, sins take out bots easy.
It's the pros they have issues with at times.

I have single handedly destroyed a group of 10 bots being escorted by 2 players. They were going for a nice invasion, but i was cloaked and got behind them. Lunged (lvl 3 passive) and took out all the bots. The Pros killed me, but I did my job :)

Yeah assasins own bots. I never have a problem with bot rushes.

Really I don't screw with the bots since it feels like I'm handing that hundred credits to the other team.

You dont use bots right at the start, since it would be a waste. As an assault I feel the bots give me easy kills, however I use it when I feel like we getting beat down hard into the base, or players around with little health. However, I tend to really use them when all my skills I need are maxed and I have money left over.
