Doubling the lumberjack's projectile speed!
Ok... Maybe it wasn't doubled... But it certainly got a massive increase.
I mean, really. That'd be pretty scary.

Far more of an overall nerf than anything else! :P

I know! Especially on Canyons and other close range maps. But still, you'd be getting merc-range lumberjacking on Fjords and Dunes. On the plus side, that'd make sniping matches so much quicker.

What if every instance of the word "flak" in-game was replaced with the original German term from which it was derived, "Flugzeugabwehrkanone"?

Just imagine the poor captains... Instead of shouting "fire flak"...

Hence, "Rasbequacgab", the shortened version. And yes, I'm shouting that forever after now. (Get it? Rasberries? No? Ducks say rasberries to mean "Enemy Hull Armor Down. How dare you not know our culture. For you barbarians, we can just keep saying "theenemyhulldownfiretheflakflackfireitnownownonotnowthisnowyouneedtofireitwhenIsayrrgghhhhaahhfrigfrigwe'regonnadiegabwehrkanone)

Spoon speaks the truth, although that does beat "Ilmatorjuntakanuuna". xD

It really isn't once you figure out where the syllables start and end.

Yeah if something is hard to understand it's bloody finnish.

"Luftvärnskanon" is probably easier than both of them though.

How about a gun that:

Fires as fast as the gattling..
Ammo clip as large as the flamethrower..
Range of Mercury..
and the rounds that act like a banshee?

could nerf it so it has a 1 sec reload time and auto buffs ever 2nd reload :)

Give the squid three forward facing light guns. Even with the merc nerf, think what three of them could do on an approaching enemy ship at mid range. No guns no engines and the hull breaking every 8 seconds.
