You are the one who brought up the 17pdr....
No I did not, I brought the only ability that is similar that happen to be available in 17p. This is about an ability and how it used and not about units. Can we avoid this "you said game" which is non constructive?
I have point out that a similar ability does not seem from the same behavior and thus it should plausible to fix.
In your first post you said to remove the preparation delay, which sounds like making it fire faster. You can write more carefully too
I suggest next time you are unsure about something that you ask for clarifications or simply state which part you agree with and which part you do not.
Starting balance discussion in a thread that has nothing to do with balance is non constructive.
(If you are looking for "secrets agendas" and "secret buffs" that is what you will find.)
