    2 words: THANK YOU!!!!!
    • Sniper Cannon: -7.5% damage - I like this, great balance
    • Ballpark Mortar: +14% damage - Not sure about this, it gets a boost in AOE, but we'll see
    • Overboost: -2 second duration, +2 second cooldown - Another good balance
    • Repair Pulse: Repairs own ship for 50% less than teammates ships - Yes, I like it, makes the the duct tape more viable
    • Repair Box Launcher: Boxes now expire after 60 seconds in the water - I like this. Mines disappear but boxes didn't? Good idea, no more spamming. More tactics.
    • Tesla Shield: Player is stunned for 4 seconds if shield is broken by damage - Great balance. Pointless to stun and break it...This definitely needed to be fixed!!!

    Oooh... neato! Well this addresses the Uber fixer I suppose, and helps them stay out of line of Fire. Defender still getting no love. *sigh*

    Changes sound pretty good. A little upset at the fixing needs, but hey, I can accept them. Well done Devs.

    Because if repair pluse heals less on fixer,fixer being frosted will be very easy to be killed

    Well seems to be nerfs to the speeders imo.Getting stunned if your sheild is destroyed is pretty big and the overboost nerfs.I honestly dont think the sniper needed a nerf but oh well.

    It wont be that bad smash...fixers can heal themselves...only class that has that ability.
    It's not a nerf...it's a balance...there's a huge difference. It'll be okay.

    I'm only a mk4...so I'm going to have to manage. With a yellow slot...They have the most options.
    red, blue, yellow, green...it's not that bad.

    Uh I dont think you quite understood the tesla sheild changes?The change is the player using the tesla sheild will be stunned if something hits him with more damage than what his sheild can absorb.Pretty big nerf lol.

    Really interested to see how all this will pan out, but I'm too much of a newbie to see if it's going in the right direction or not. Looks good though.

    I told you the game was telling you to go Rambo Fixer, but you didn't listen and you scrapped it!
