    Here's an accurate example of me running away from the radius of a firebomb before getting -40 burn dmg x 17 seconds Screenshot_2017-07-18-07-56-04-1.png

    If a fire bomb hits you from the point you're half a pixel in it, it should AT LEAST not last the full 15 (+perks) seconds.

    Easy balance: Make the time average on where the boat is hit (like the frost launcher). Max being in the middle (full time) and minimum being like 9-10 seconds at outer ring.

    I Think that rovio work actually on mortar/firedot/teslabolt/torpedo...(and perhaps frost duration/effect)

    If it hit you at the edge each tick would only be like 5 so no sweat

    Best thing about fire bomb is the duration, not the dmg, who uses firebomb for the dmg? It's to make our cannons crit.

    Please demand a dmg nerf if you want but not the duration.

    Plis plis plis

    I've always found it weird how if I'm on the edge of the circle, like you said, I still get set on fire. The radius really only should be IN THE CIRCLE.

    Before anyone asks, I use firebomb

    Also nice drawing lol. Have a like

    Well sometimes it's lag, it looks like you're all the way on the outside but in the server you're further to the middle. I see the same with torpedoes sometimes, I'll be visually far away from the explosion and still take a lot of damage as if I were close. It's frustrating, but there's not much to be done about that.

    Yeah it's strange, but I think they work like mortars in that the aoe zone isn't 100% accurate due to the waves and angle it comes in. (It would be accurate on flat surface). It's really annoying though to be on outside and still take almost full damage, and other times only take 1 damage per second; the inconsistency kills me haha
