They couldn't find a way to smooth out the animations for both Troopers (mortar volley) so..in all fairness, they made it worthless...or VERY unattractive at least.


They're terrible coders, they couldn't get it to work for troopers, so they ruined it for everyone.
Preventing Hackers and Exploiters from ruining the game is not a priority. Preventing you from mentioning the fact that they exist and go unpunished is.

The damage seemed pretty gross. It was like having four back to back railshots. Maybe use something else?

Pyro Merc half BM and still sitting around the top of the dps charts without DFA.

Um no, arsenal wasnt nerfed. Pyro and heals were.

Maybe you didnt notice it, but the pyro typically uses their rapid shots A LOT and now its dmg is ninja nerfed. You arsenals having to adjust your rotations to get the same dps... who cares?

they should have removed the knockdown part of Death from above...the radius is so small now they get knocked out it...

i cast DfA on four npc's and all four took dmg the first hit and only two got the rest...badly broken IMO.

im sure someone will call me a whiner and tell me to deal with it...BH is no longer fun to me, i believe i paid for the right to be upset.

The radius change is not okay. This attack is now basically pointless.

My shieldtech feels otherwise basically unaffected but the death from above change is stupid.

The attack also has 1 minute cooldown and needs to be activated from range.. Yea I will use something else since theres no reason to use death from above anymore...
Its better to just rocket charge and flame sweep..
