"All Cybertech grenades now bestow a new effect, the Bastion, on the target in addition to normal effects. Players who have this effect applied are immune to further Cybertech grenade attacks for the duration of Bastion (3 minutes)."

From the updated patch notes on PTS Today (


Seems like a good change to me, I expected their complete removal, this is a decent middle-ground and may satisfy those that love the grenades.

I wish they would just remove them but this is better than what we had before.

Think I'd prefer it if it was just the bonus effects, but I'm biased.
All but one of the grenades deal horrendously low damage, all the others focus on their CC effect, so if I could still use pyro grenade for a decent AoE would be nice.

You can't make up stuff like that.

Rofl, this is the most stupid nerf I have ever seen.

Good riddance bioware, another reason to quit the game.

I mean seriously for god sake the item is on a 3 minute cooldown, this is just going to overcomplicate things and most of all going to make class based AoE CC even more powerful than ever before.

This is just as, no, even more retarded than resetting your breaker on death. Might aswell remove grenades alltogether and it would be better for balance than this ****.

Good idea; let's tip the scales even more in favour of Smugglers/Agents and Knights/Warriors.

They need removed entirely from PvP.

That'd be better than this.

People are really complaining about this?

So much complaining about there being too many stuns, and the devs do something to reduce that, and people complain about it?

Its times like this i do actually feel sorry for the dev team.

No good player was complaining about too many stuns. And grenades were the least of the problem lol.

Either remove them entirely or keep them as they are. Not this crap.

I'm alright with this change, especially for arenas.

Nadespam gets annoying for everyone, and now it's less about throwing them at random and more about saving them for the right opportunity to save a life or get a kill.
