That's crazy... here's how I propose Smash be fixed to counter this OP'ness, this should be in the next balance pass:

- Smash now automatically applies Force Crush on all targets hit, slowing them from 60% to 10% and building 4 stacks of Shockwave.
- If this Force Crush is Cleansed/Purged, the target is slain.

Also, I think a 2 second cast Thundering Blast hits for waaaay too much, I think I saw a few crits in there for 3.7k and 3.8k! Why would anyone think a 2 sec cast should do so much damage! Fail BW! You should probably increase the cast duration to balance the damage, maybe 2.5 or 3 seconds.

After the attempted purge slays the target they should be removed from the warzone and placed in outlaws den, 1000m above the ground where they immediately fall to their death...again

Also I find it strange that there are no assassins on red eclipse

Red Eclipse sounds like a horrible place, like Tampa for Star Wars.

What server is this on? An entire team of people who didn't even try to plant on the door, just deathmatched.

Harbinger, we weren't attempting to plant. The idea was who could out-deathmatch each other, Lightning or Smashers.

Seeing that much lightning flying around is just hilarious!

Makes me want to roll a sorcerer. But I already have a 30ish sage... stupid pebble throw.

The only reason the team of madness sorcerers made any sense was:
  1. Everyone was a sorcerer so they could purge themselves and each other to prevent building shock-wave.
  2. You had enough sorcerers to permanently root someone.
  3. The other team seemed to lack healers.
