    I preferred the old payment method of 50 wood per sponge instead of 30 coins. With this, the whole water-countering thing took a step back when it should have taken one forward in my opinion. The change is understandable for TDM, but having it cost coins makes it even less lucrative of an option, for me at least. Even the price of 30 coins for one shortened stun doesn't add up when two water arrows cost 20 coins.

    (this doesn't concern me, I'm mainly pushing this since I keep seeing people get upset about water)

    My initial wish was to somehow make the default cost of a sponge be wood, provided that the player is carrying some, and if not, the cost would show up as coins.

    Alternatively, the builder workshop could display the sponge cost based on player class, i.e. wood for builders, coins for knights/archers (Two identical but separate sponge entities with different price). I don't know whether this is any easier to code, though I would prefer the previous suggestion.

    Summary: Either drop sponge cost to at least 20 coins or revert it back to 50 wood (or both)

    you see , they can't . the demand on sponges are low these days so they have to increase the cost (in this case make it cost coins),
    they can't do anything bout it .

    I agree with Quail. We should also decrease the cost of water arrows since they are used a lot. It's simple supply and demand.

    Can we talk about sponges again? They cost 30 coins which is bullshit and noone used them. Make them 15 coins and some wood and we're fine. Water is cancer we need to fight with it.

    When this comes from a MIST member who literally use water to win, then you know it's getting serious guys.

    Blame the game mechanics, not the players.

    Sponge is 15 coins next build (no wood to avoid pressure on combat classes to take wood from storages and mess up stacks), dunno if it'll help tbh but we'll see.

    We'll try incremental changes :) I'll consider it though.

    just do it right away, you'll know instantly whether ~20 coin sponges that absorb two splashes are way OP or not
