bringing back an important relationshipJust a short post to say I think it would be good to bring back some importance to the FT versus DI. As it is now, when a cyst is killed, its DI slowly begins to shrink back. This is good because it would suck for alien khamms if the DI instantly disappeared and their structures started taking damage every time a cyst gets killed. The counter point is true for marines, they have to wait a bit for the DI to recede before they can build their structures. I would like to see that when a cyst is killed by a FT, or a FT is used on receding DI, the DI recedes at a much greater rate. This brings back the important relationship that the FT used to have with DI. It would also make the marines feel like they are really 'burning back' the infestation. Plus having a FT help clear an area would allow marines to quickly set up forward bases if they are smart enough to bring a FT with them. To balance / make this important, perhaps DI should recede a bit more slowly than it does now when not affected by an FT.
Quick edit, used too much 'plus'
