    As the archers, using the right click to cancel the shooting process would enable the player to avoid:
    • Teamates being launched too far/short with the catapult when the shooter was already aiming at another target.
    • Destroying own buildings.
    • At an inminent attack, the player can jump out of the vehicle without wasting ammo, and avoiding the possible collateral damage that the missed shot could cause.
    Side uses:
    Fool the enemy letting think you are out of ammo.

    This is an essential feature which needs to be implemented for siege weapons.
    The only thing I will add is that it should take a while for you to cancel the shot, as in it takes a while before you can shoot again (like a cooldown sorta thing). Considering how long it takes for you to charge a shot it should take a fair bit of time cancelling it.

    Done, as a bonus catapults now actually pay attention to their cooldown time (effectively limiting rate of fire and preventing low-velocity spam)

    So just like ballistae behave in regards to cooldown time? Sweet!

    Yep, it's the same behaviour (cooldown expires before charging is allowed).

    It is a flat nerf to cata firing speed since they've been ignoring it this whole time, but since I hear complaints about cata spam being OP, I'll go with this and we'll see if it needs adjustment.
