    Today i watched the new kag video (KAG beta teaser) and on about the 2:00 mark i saw on the right of the screen a bassista bolt penetrating a piece of dirt... discuss
    EDIT: sorry it wasnt the 2 minute mark, its from 1:55 to 1:57
    EDIT #2: unstead of penetrate i meant destroy blocks :/
    EDIT #3: can admin change title to "Ballistas will destroy blocks :D (maybe)"

    The video for the lazy fags. Also, at 1:31 a blue knight goes through damaged(?) red doors. So, what do ya guys think at these changes?

    EDIT: If I'm watching the right ballista bolt, it just destroyed the dirt block, not penetrated it.

    Those were wooden red doors... not the normal stone ones, i saw the wooden doors when the builder was selecting blocks at 0:30. i guess wooden doors allow anyone to go through them but they cost way less that stone doors which dont allow anyone cept team to go through them... And i dont think those doors were damaged because this is how damaged doors would look like 0:59-1:01

    If you look at it, you can see that it damages the block, and sticks in it like an arrow.

    As I have been penetrated by several ballista bolts, I can indeed confirm this. I don't think it's much of a secret at this point :3

    So ballista>catas vs vehicles but catas>ballistas vs blocks?

    But catas still hurt vehicles and ballistas still can break blocks

    The way i see it ballista is used for crowd control/cata destoying
    and the cata is used for assaulting bases and destroying boats
