    Yes I just rage quit TDM to make this but it's been bothering me for a while. The one hit kill anything next to you or below you is getting a bit tedious. Yes, it takes a bit of skill to learn but the fundamental issue is they do too much damage.

    I mind less when its dropped on my head, but when I go in swinging at 90 degrees its just luck whether I hit the boulder first or it hits me and insta kills. I've only ever seen them being used like this, which I'm sure wasn't the reason they were put in the game.

    Thoughts? Geti knows about it I assume, has an official comment been made whether it's here to stay or not? Personally I'd be ok with keeping the damage the same if you moved slower with it, so it's more defensive - as this gives you the chance to position yourself above them.

    Boulder :boulder: slows the player that is bringing it, and it's movement is so slow. You can prevent it by moving away or slashing the rock. :knight:

    If you think boulder :boulder: is so op, then think about spikes :spikes:. It's all about adapting to the "meta" and trying to get better! (You can also use the boulder) :wink:

    Thing is, it doesn't slow you down. I don't know if things are different between CTF and TDM but I tested and moved at full speed. Spikes are different, you can't be as mobile and kill with spikes, takes some setup to do.

    You can prevent it by moving away, it's not really a solution. Slashing the rock I mentioned in my OP. It's 50/50 whether you hit the rock or it hits you first. Point is, if you slash the rock they don't die whereas you get hit by that boulder and it's insta-kill.

    Nerf boulders in tdm if you wanted to, but NOT IN CTF!

    Stop grumble always an item is not all the time OP.
    Put yourself in the place of the person who plays the boulder and see that it's not always easy to kill an opponent with. (I speak especially CTF)

    The person playing the boulder you brain tries to kill you.
    Learn how to play against it and you will see that it is not so hard to kill them.
    I personally think it is harder to play CTF in builder with a boulder that with spikes
    Take the test you will see.

    But I do not want the spikes are nerf.

    The game is very good at the moment.

    Then imo they should slow you down (to be honest i'm not sure about if they do).

    When you see someone with a boulder :boulder:, you can wait archers :archer: to hit him (then rock falls down) and you can attack.

    It's so much fun to kill people in TDM with boulders, they are a little OP but very hard to use at first.

    Fuck tender is the knight lets go with hard is the boulder @Geti

    Boulders are fine TBH they are pretty ridiculous but easily countered.

    Thanks, yeah you can easily kill someone holding a boulder.
    They act differently and focus too much on throwing the boulder to dodge or shield you know ?

    Ok long story short

    The video is you killing the same few people over and over there archers not kights

    Boulders you can not be hit by one by pressing s as auburn sad

    not every hit with a boulder is 1 hit dead

    Why Boulders don't need to be nerfed because in ctf boulders cost 35 wich is 5 more then the thing you get

    from the tent so most people don't get the 5 stone to make boulder in tdm the cost 50 per boulder wich is the

    spawning amount in tth you need a workshop and stone
    Plx don't put as spam :heart:It's better to reed it like this better for your eyes:heart:

    In ctf you could just wait another 30 seconds to get 30 stone while holding the other 30

    I'm trying to say that you don't need to mine stone and even when the map ha no more stone you are still able to get a boulder in ctf
