    I say they give Sab 40m range and the ability to fly so we can plant people without them realizing it.
    WOULD ONLY BE FAIR! :J

    Actually it's 25 meters not 20.... but still un-called for w/o testing the impact of the other changes first.

    198.* Reduced the range of all Bombs and Charges to 15 meters, down from 20 meters.
    199.* Reduced the range of Detonate to 15 meters, down from 20 meters.
    200.* Long Range Bombing: Now increases the range you can hurl Bombs by 1-5 meters, down from 2-10 meters.
    201.* Remote Clipping: Now increases the range of your Charges and Detonates by 1-5 meters, down from 2-10 meters.


    where do u see the 25m. range?

    What's a meter? This is 'merica. We do things in inches, feet, and yards here. Not sure what this 'meter' malarkey is all about but it sounds communist.

    actually, since when should you be able to *throw* charges that stick to people from miles away?

    sabs charges should be melee range and detonate should be ranged *only* to be an accurate combo


    get in, set up the bomb, get out, BOOM

    not this stupid throwing from 20m away "magical" charges that stick to people

    actually. if the base is reduced to 15 and then remote clipping is reduced to 1-5m down from 5-10m.

    That means that 15+ (maximum from remote clipping) 5 = 20m

    New sab max charge range. Then the reduction on detonate to 15m (down from 20)

    it puts us at a dangerous medium range.

    Irrelevant.... you don't 'change' something before making sure your 'fixes' are working correctly first.
    It's a BAD testing procedure that violates K.i.S.S.

    Keep it Simple Stupid.

    Troubleshooting, 'fixiing' bugs you want to reduce variables not increase them.

    Fix the bugs, assess the impact then make adjustments/changes... don't try to do both at the same time.

    It's 20m with the talent for bombs/charges/detonate.

    * Reduced the range of all Bombs and Charges to 15 meters, down from 20 meters.
    * Reduced the range of Detonate to 15 meters, down from 20 meters.
    * Long Range Bombing: Now increases the range you can hurl Bombs by 1-5 meters, down from 2-10 meters.
    * Remote Clipping: Now increases the range of your Charges and Detonates by 1-5 meters, down from 2-10 meters.

    15m + 5m(talent) = 20m

    As in 10m less than it used to be ~~~

    Because alphas are just shrugging & dealing with it and all the betas are here whining about it on the boards?

    sab damage is being reduced to 50% since they changed charge booster, so a sab doing 1500 damage every 6 secs at 20m max range is very good yes

    where do u see the 25m. range?
    I only recall seeing 1/2 that, I'll have to go re-read the actual notes...20 meters is ludicrous as compared to 25 being 'bad' and my apologies for my error.

    My key gripe about this, is that it's stupid and bad practice/policy to make changes without first having seen/tested/measure the impact of the 'fixes'.

    Two servers...Live and Alpha. These are Alpha notes. These changes are probably 2-3 weeks from going live.

    I would take the AFK warfront change right now though. They could push that through as a hot
    fix today if I had my way.
