# 1 Ramming Speed!!
07-27-2010, 11:11 PM
With the intoduction of Seanson 2. The Ramming Speed abilitity has been nerfed. Instead of being able to use the ability at any hull-strengh we are now only able to Ramm when our hulls are below 50% structural integrity.

I am asking for the new requirements be rescinded to their pre-Season 2 capabilites.

Thank you!

Ain't happening, Bud. I suggest you adapt and find a new tactic.

The change was an excellent one. It was absurd that this was being used in almost every fight rather than as a last ditch tactics... this is space combat, not ancient Greek naval warfare.

i hate this change. we all know ramming speed was only broken because it stacked with damage abilities and speed abilities to get absurd one shot damage levels.

now we have another 90% useless power to go with the 100% useless abandon ship. except it can STILL get those absurd damage levels. Silly. Silly.

Remove Ramming Speed and Abandon Ship - Replace with new powers.

I personnally do not use ramming speed or abandon ship at all and it has been that way since OB. Completely pointless abilities.

AAAAAAAAAHAHAHHAHAHHAHHAHHAAHAHA! NO.

To elaborate, it was not nerfed, it was FIXED to how it should be and I am so glad to see threads like this crop up because it shows just who used purely as a high burst damage attack or, less likely, as an escape mechanism. I don't think 50% is enough but it's a hell of a lot better than 100% where you had team ramming in PvP or escort pilots and science ships ramming cruisers that were tanking with low hull to finish them off.

'Abandon ship' is utterly pointless, that's for sure... 'ramming speed' however is not, it is just harder to use... as it should be.

Just tired of the QQ over such a simple ability, that I really have no problem with in combat.....
The only bug I could say about it is I'm tired of bouncing off cruisers when I use it. lol.

well the ramming speed is definitly better off now that you have to be at 50% or lower to use is, I was getting quite sick of being smacked around by completly healthy people.

However it does suck for me on account that I used ramming speed to escape from the fray when i was about to be snuffed out. I guess Ill have to figure out a new way to run away...

Even though it sux for me its still better that it has been changed
