I haven’t used most of these swerves so I’m refraining from voting. Would be interesting to see what the results are without voting, if possible.

Unfortunately I can no longer edit the poll, but I will attempt to post regular updates detailing the results.

Here’s a screenshot of the results as of now:

I’d be interested in how many people voting have actually used all (or even more than one) of the modules. Seems most teams just pick with one type and stick with it, or switch to their own custom module.

Agreed. I feel a more helpful question would be “Which modules have you used, which of those do you like best, and why?”

I’m pretty sure most people haven’t been hands-on with the MK3, but from experience with the MK2 and the noted upgrades, it makes sense for the 3 to be garnering a significant portion of votes atm.

I’m betting nobody voting in this poll has used more than 2 of these options, if that.
