But actually the hades model is a bid akward. Its supposed to hit at long to midrange but its model fills up ur screen so hard u can barely see an enemy ship behind it.
I love that broken meta. gat mortar isnt that strong anymore.

Edit: made a mistake. meant the hades not the artemis.

Yeah, that viewshield makes it really hard to lead targets that are moving from the right to left.
+1,5s on the Hellhound reloadspeed is... kind of a really radical change. I don't know why its reloadspeed even got nerfed.

Like the Hades, especially like the Hades/Flak new mid-longrange combo to do kills. A yay for a flak that does not share a niche in that it is being outperformed by a dozen times.

Why won't it let me edit my post anymore?

Since fires became more prominent now, I wonder how much damage they deal. Somewhere (I believe in the archives, not sure) I found the statement each fire deals 8 base plus 2 additional damage per second per stack. Is that still true? Are the damagemodifieres for firedamage applied on the fires too?

30 minute timer on post edits.

That is correct. And the modifiers are applied.

I see in the descriptions for Heatsink and Incendiary a few...numbers
Heatsink being -20% projectile speed, and Incendiary being -25% projectile speed; however, that is not the case...

Oh regarding this, I am sure the tooltips for Incendiary and Heatsink were changed, not so sure on Incendiary though. I think Incendiary used to do -25% RoF and Heatsink used to do -20% dmg, -30% projectile speed (used to be the highest reduction)
If those values were changed, it was definitely missed in the patch logs.

I have a theory for this.

They ninja change usually at least one tool a patch to see if we're paying attention...

Well, haya!  We are paying attention!

Yeah, heatsink appears to have gotten its damage modifier changed from -25% to -17%. Funnily enough, that makes it get the highest damage per clip (+buff) on some guns (like heavy carro).

I do not agree with how the flak has been modified. Now it is still a weaker weapon than the mortar (which has a damage buff no less) and it's even more likely that the hull armor is up before the necessary amount of rounds are expended.

The light flak has way more velocity, precision and rate of fire. Three seconds of fire and one second of travel time easily allow a 1 clip kill on all but the goldfish, galleon or squid. In what way do you think it should be improved?
