    Looking forward to the new ideas for the guild quests! As someone who has recently discovered the power of the ex cannon, I'm a little gutted at the cool down nerf. Not too bothered by the range nerf, as I like to get in amongst the enemy and cause havok. Bolt cooldown nerf on the other hand, just another nerf to speeders!
    Sniper cannon desperately needs a nerf now more than ever, all things considered.

    i think this update shows promise... not an avid tesla bolt user but the cooldown nerf is, in my initial opinion, a bit too much. the EC nerf is a surprise but i can understand why. the change in firebombs area effect sounds like a buff which we don't really need - firebomb is already OP as it is. what's the duration range for firebomb now from outer perimeter hit to a bullseye hit?

    non battle improvements are a long time coming so thank you, devs for listening to the community.

    i'll save my feedback after the update comes out and i can play a few battles with the affected items.

    Explosive canon and firebomb were probably most used weapon nice to see them nerfed

    Need a decent 3rd yellow 1 slot item now, Tesla Bolt / Frost Launcher are the only options and both have been hit hard over the last few months.

    Loved the latest changes. Especially Tesla bolt and Ex cannot. Speeders we're being the god by continuously stunning us. And defenders (& shooters) we're really deadly with two or more ex. Thank you BB.

    Speeders were being the god by stunning players?
    Stun resistance was already implemented to prevent continuous stuns.
    Increasing to 15s would have been fair, 20s is a killer IMO.

    Please show up the probability of the guild raffe!!! Since last updated, the most of times we only get cell or items pieces...it's very hard to get a perk or parts

    Yea speeders gonna recharge all their weapons, shoot us and stun us again..Impossible to win in 1vs1.
    Speeders should have been like a hide and seek hitting player. ( Not like standing infront and shooting/stunning)

    Just a Tier 4 rare Tesla bolt used to give 10sec+ stun (with perks). That's really bad.

    It wasnt OP, they only have 2 weapons, and on using 1 would break the stun.
    As they shoot you, global cooldown would prevent them from stunning before you popped a shot off.
    It was more useful in 2 vs 1 situations where you could silence one opponent whilst facing the other, in 1 vs 1 it isnt that useful as every time you shoot the stun breaks.

    I think the change in firebomb is mostly so you aren't stuck with a 20+ second debuff increasing cannon damage and it'll do the same overall damage, but in a shorter time frame.

    How are duration perks and crew training going to work on firebombs now though? If they stay the same, then yeah, this is a big buff to a weapon that is already really strong.

    Yes but other boats are strong too, enforcer and fixer both have access to Tesla Bolt.
    I agree a small nerf was needed, just think 70% increase is too big a jump.

    He is partially right! STUN is better than any other yellow items, Enforcer Use tesla shield because of slot distribution and fixer have to use OB because of slow speed. Which makes Speeders(Best boat for using stun) more versatile than its other yellow slot using counter parts.But now stun seems more balanced, because previously it had no major flaws. Solid projectile speed, can shoot through waves, Blocks all Healing still doesn't sound bad to me!.

    BTW i m a F2P player with only 2 T4 epics one being tesla bolt
