Please replace self damage of grenades / explosions to speed buff to teammates like after web effect. Will be more logic.

    So let me see if I understand this right...

    You want to remove self damage from grenades and replace it with a speed buff??

    As in hit yourself/teammates with a grenade to speed them up?

    Not only would that make the marine "herds" you've been complaining about infinitely stronger (basically super cheap cat packs) it makes absolutely no sense at all...

    Why should an explosion give you a speed boost???

    I think he meant nerf to speed, like after a web.

    Why should an explosion give you a speed boost? This question makes me think about rocket jumps in quake.

    I do think he meant speed nerf rather than have damage. A speed buff in ns2 would be silly.

    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    Preciiiisely. A gamer never dies from its own bullets/bombs. He gets a speed boost !!! ... at least.

    I thought you knew that !!!

    What would be more true??

    Not to mention the "grenade jump with triple looping, triple Axel, head-shot with an good old Artic sniper rifle from the other side of the map" which is totally... totally normal and fit reality perfectly.
