Playing with 30 for is actually more fun
Spamming emotes is fun
Water bombs were a mistake.
water bombs are fine, arrows is where it starts going wrong.
I did made a small mod to fix the spam somewhat, by reducing the hold from 2 to 1 water arrow and the cost at shop 1 waterarrow 10 coins. But people didnt want it in captains at the time.
The entire water mechanic just sucks though.
What other game has an AoE ranged stun which is infinitely spammable.
all mmorpgs, but not fully spammable
I think water could be fixed by making it apply some serious knockback & reducing the stun time. - turns it from "I use this to get an easy kill" to "I use this to make space for my team" < this brings more of a focus into team play & doesn't reward players for paying 30 coins for an item with a kill.
this changes the way it's used by both knights and archers - knights use it to make space (for example, you're in a 3v1 and you hit two people with a water bomb, knocking them back a considerable distance & giving you time to deal with the knight in question) or if you're in a crowded space and you manage to hit an enemy (or group of enemies) it gives you time to escape and make your way back to your base, or if you just want to slow an enemy push by knocking players back, a water bomb that applies considerable knockback would be a really great improvement to the one we have currently.
and for archers, you get a way to harass the enemy that isn't simply delivering free kills to your knights. water bombs already are great for knocking people off ladders (or towers) but with the knockback turned up you have a potent weapon to harass and interfere builders and knights alike. in this way, water becomes a great counter to people hogging high ground, whether it be towers or dirt mounds it serves a purpose without being obnoxious (as water spam currently is)
as for the amount of stun, I think maybe a jab's length (+ or - a bit) is enough damage, maybe with greater stun the closer you manage to hit the player with the water bomb?
I know there's many MANY other priorities with the game but my lord do I want water reworked
those ideas sound really good crux, the knockback sounds good but how would kegs and holding things work, like when i knight is about to launch a cata keg and and an archer waters him, does he fly back still holding the light keg or does he drop the keg, like how it is atm in-game
Those ideas sound really good crux, but, oh wait, look, "unpopular opinions"
Burger knight is best knight.
Amin knight is worst knight
Oh wait wrong thread....
It warms my heart that you perceived my true greatness if but for a moment by making such a mistake
Mining bedrock should make you explode. Newbies don't seem to get the message and will keep loudly hammering it for days.
KAG is not dead
I've been hammering bedrock for years bro.
If you hit bedrock 1000 times as a builder it suddenly is gone.
Yeah and then u receive +3 bedrock rubble in your inventory. Need 10 to build 1 block of it.
i've been hammering your mom for years :^^^)
