@Retroman, what have u done with this game dude. U are basically removing the best ZvZ mechanic. Why you constantly keep making this game less skill-based and more number-based? I dont even mention "queued map dodge" which is gonna be deadly for smaller forces, just because bigger blobs gonna zone straight into them and wipe them with overwhelming forces. Do you even think about consequences of those changes? Why u let smaller part of community that is advicing u on NDA deciding about the game look? Once u've been making global polls about the disarray, etc. Make another poll for current zvz state and ask WHOLE community if they're fine with aoe escalation nerfs or not...

Hey, the current changes are stil in testing. And we are still evaluating on them.

If you disagree with this change, it would be helpful if you can explain more detailed why you prefer the current values and in what scenarios you think it is better and how this change will be negatively affect the gameplay. Do you think the new cap is too low? Or do you think the ramp up is too slow with the new values?

The main change we noticed after patch 7 is that the ramp up when hitting 2-4 targets is pretty high right now. Increasing the average damage, which hits a few enemies too much.

Cheers,
Retro
