Depends on remaining health, which component it is and how many stacks of fire are on it.

I know a lot of people are complaining about this change but I think it adds a lot of depth to engineering since engineers will reallyhave to make choices and the ones who choose best will turn the tide of battle more than ever.

Flare-gatling-flak Junker trifecta. That just about sums it up (even with the flare nerf).

Going to require a lot more proactive chem spraying as opposed to reactive extinguishing. I'm excited, because it'll make engineering require a lot more strategy and skill in order to be effective. Keep in mind that the extinguisher cooldown has been halved in addition to this change, so it won't be completely impossible to use an extinguisher with its cooldown, but I imagine I'll use chem spray a lot more often.

I really like this change. It makes flames, whether it be from a flamethrower, incendiary, or banshee a real threat rather than a nuisance. I think it's so strong in fact that it just adds more dimensions to play styles; i that we have a very dangerous close range threat, to go with all the medium and long range options.

watching the hull burn on hull cool down feels like a lost because of bad game  mechanics rather then lack of skill

to bring this change now is kind of backwards

Weren't you talking earlier about fire needing to be more effective? Now it is. I don't see the issue. Just repair to full health before extinguishing.

Or chemspray until the fire's out (shorter cooldown than mallet) then repair.

personally I liked it in the old days when fire did almost nothing but disable weapons.  Couldn't take down a ship with it but you could sure as heck disable it
