About the Chrono Dampner ACU Upgrade

@exselsior this sounds amazing but hard to implement-did they also discus increasing the cost? I don't mind its brokeness as much if it was expensive to implement like a stealthed and cloaked cybran com with laser and t3 suite

sure that will crush most anything that doesn't have built in omni or isn't in omni range but the power costs to both upgrade that far and run it are simply crippling

The proposed Chrono rework is here

The stun time difference and whether or not there will be a cost change is up to the balance team.

Also I don't think maser is a good comparison point for com upgrades since it's really only made for telemaser.

Cloak is only made if you are in your 50th minute on Seton's and have "fuck you" eco.

Is there a reason by the way why the chrono dampener stuns?

Constantly slowing down all enemy units and projectiles in range would be less oppressive than a stun mechanic while still powerful, rewarding micro. Stun seems to be out of favor in any game nowadays.

I think it stuns because it is both easier to implement (get all units in radius X every Y seconds) and easier to understand (they're stunned - immediately recognizable)

It's half the cost of tele. It has some niche uses, you can use it to bait and defend an experimental push for example.

@jip I disagree on the effect, it is just a 0.5 second debuff to speed, acceleration, turret rotation etc for units applied every 0.5 seconds.

Affecting projectiles properly would be more difficult I guess.

Visibility requires a good volunteer artist I agree.

Just watched a replay where a cloaked maser com took out a gc(or spider) and a bunch of t3, maser and Chrono are not even close to the same

Cloaked mazer, which is 2.5 times more expensive. Regular mazer com can be kited and killed by 2 percies.

@veteranashe it cannot take out a gc, since it has omni

Yes it was a spider. I went and found it and checked, there is 2 very good maser events in this cast at 31 mins and at 40 mins and is very entertaining.
