    We tested it out. Montes box normally gets around 800 heals.. as we add flare to it in continues decreasing. Literally to a point where his box did 33 healing. And his pulse was doing 2... death of the fixers.

    Also: this might need to be under bugs butttt I already wrote it and attached the images and I’m to lazy to redo it :)

    Mod edit: I fixed your pictures.

    Can you show the full image instead if thumbnails lol, some people may be lazy :p

    The stack is not cumulative, so thank God 4 flares won't make you healing -20% lol

    70% -> 70% of 70% -> 70% of 70% of 70%

    I'm more curious about whether this is a bug or intended. I'm leaning towards this being intended.
    You know what, I bet this stacking also works with frost blaster, you should check that too!

    @Miika can verify?

    I made them thumbnails bc the black bars. I can’t insert raw screenshots bc the quality is apparently to high. So I have to take screenshots of my screenshots lol

    Yes. All other buffs/debuffs stack in the game (slowdown, fire dmg, stun resistances etc) also fire healing reduction stacks also. We feel that is the most natural and expected behavior.

    So your saying if everyone in the unfriendlies equips a flare (which is going to happen) and targets the fixer (which always happens) the fixer will literally not be able to do anything because it’s “the most natural”?

    Flare always worked this way long time ago before the update.

    If I'm out in the open enough to take five simultaneous flare shots - quite frankly, I deserve the swift and painful death coming my way.

    More likely though is that if I'm out in the open, the first flare hits, everyone goes "Oh hey, he's on fire" and I get blown into a fine green mist by Blast and Explosive cannons.

    I think there needs to be some sort of fire extinguisher to combat this. Maybe allow frost to remove fire on friends or on yourself.

    As much as I hate fire reducing my triple tape heals, I cannot support this stack to be removed. I myself am a flare using and without stacking I would not be able to kill fixers easily.

    Agree, fixers aren’t that easy to kill with flare/cannon except if you have a really powerful cannon with all fire perks.

    No, it's not the cannon that kills fixers easily. Even a weak fire boost is fine, although the bonus is always good. It's the fact that flares last so long 20 sec plus, and stacks that reduce their healing so I can kill them lol

    *grin* I was thinking that too... Wait! I want to be invulnerable also!

    For those selfish fixers out there.... if I get hit by 5 flares I'm dead no matter what -- no different than if I get hit by 5 of anything else. So it's hard for me to cry on your behalf about this one.

    Would be awesome if frost can be used to also remove / reduce duration of flares. Would be a good way to combat this, and give a much needed buff to frost. It would work like how repair bolt locks on to teammates as well, except it will only lock onto burning teammates to prevent the annoyance.
