The first change I would think about is giving this weapon a spread.

This was an interesting thought. Weather it would be good or bad change, I do not know.
As a result, I tried making a simulation for it. the sim is not exactly accurate so I can't tell how it will be for sure. Anyone can test it out at

* it is likely that I will delete this website after several months, so don't bother if you can't access it.
* the red circle will simulate a player. press space to fire cluster missiles and press alt to change the spread
* I am not sure if this works on all browsers, It for sure works on chrome
* This simulation is not accurate
* depending on your screen dimensions, a few things might be off.
* you can edit the missile statistics where there is an Object list that it says "Missiles.push({..."

The spread type 2 is the one I had in mind, and looking at the simulation (Thank you very much for that by the way) it would work out very well. With a normal fire rate it would already be hard to dodge the missiles. And since the other missiles would also be there - circling you - there is an additional danger factor. So all I can say here is giving all the missiles a slight spread would most definitely help them to become more viable in the game. I thought about a similar spread like shown in the simulation. Of course it would need some more practical and accurate tests. But I'm pretty sure that giving those missiles a bit of spread would greatly help them.

Also, something that wasn't shown in the simulation is that it would need a change in the launch speed.

Again, thank you for this simulation, mufenz_

ive been doing some maffs on my shadowcraft since people now say its got too mutch firepower. tell me if this is wrong please.

226k shield is 625% hp converted to shield @ lvl 100 on shadowcraft
227k shield is 425% hp converted to shield @ lvl 100 on vindicraft

if this is right it means the shadow experiences such a loss of hp gain that by the time it gains a respectable amount of shield a vindi user can get equivelant shield and still have art strength to spare 100% damage putting it over the 150% inherent gain.

this being said
why does shadow have -20% Power regen
while vindicator has +30% Attack Speed

Add this: Increase speed from 6% to 20%
Add 15% shield regeneration
Remove this: -20% Power regen

Cloaking Device:
Increase base power use 30%
Increase attack speed tech from 25% to 35%

whatever this is, its going to have an impact on new shadows and assasins attempting to farm blobs. is there a way to increase the power use 30% only within pvp matches instead?

Seven months later since the original post. TheScythe hasn't posted here since September.

Ever hear the term "wag the dog"?

BrianN called it in November. It's a distraction from the lack of new content and updates. Nerd out on ship stats and what might change, meanwhile nothing changes.

Welcome to February...

This is not a joke, we still have intentions to bring this to life, we have come a lot further in the discussions but we still need to time to summarize and finalize everything.

The intention is to bring this to life.

I am not sure where you are going the changes have been discussed and written down, the next step is to test them in a test server, tweak and then implement...

If your reply is the general rant about the game being dead, create a thread in of-topic for that and discuss it there.

Bellatrix, those words and promises are losing their value. That you don't understand that yourself is a mystery to me. But perhaps it would help to put your orange glasses beside for a bit and reply to comments a bit more realistically. Constantly talking this game good and making empty promises doesn't help. This thread hasn't had been updated in a long time... Of course people start to lose their hope for it. Natural and understandable reaction.

will you two stop being so dramatic?

obviously people think this is a dead thread, and there is certainly no dialogue here. would it hurt to inform theese people and make the results of the testing public, or the testing itself public? because as far as everyone is concerned there is no such thing to speak of.

Come at me balance and break my arrogant attitude!
