I think it's extremely unbalanced how a player is able to knock out someone with a single lucky punch (not 10 punches, just one), but some people think this is actually balanced because it allows fresh spawns to be an actual threat to other players.
Well, the thing is, this time I was knocked out after being punched a few (not many) times while using a motorcycle helmet (not the military one that offers less face protection), so that really shows how unbalanced punches are.
This feature of rendering a person unconscious should really be balanced in the future. If punches are too weak, the devs should raise the base damage or, alternatively, punches should only have a chance to knock out someone if a person was punched a minimum amount of times (or punched from behind or something).
The luck factor should be removed so to makes things less unfair, otherwise there will be almost no more interactions between people who don't know each other in this game since geared players won't even risk allowing a naked fresh spawn to approach them anymore.
