Automatic Trebuchet!?

Would it be interesting to have automatic Trebuchet?

By that, I mean a Trebuchet that you adjust manually, shoot 1 time and then put on repeat and it will always fire that same shot non stop.

I know, I know. It's a very bad idea and could lead to multiple form of abuse like:

  • shooting at your own structure door to automatically destroy Flame Ram
  • shooting poison cow at camp supply depot to prevent anyone from getting supply

But, could there be a condition that would prevent such abuse? For example:

If the trebuchet shot didn't hit a non-destroyed enemy structure or projectile destroyer then stop shooting?

    Actually, Diku didn’t understand what the OP was actually asking for.

    Diku’s suggestion is for max range ONLY.

    The OP is asking for the ability to find the range manually, then set it to auto fire AT THAT RANGE.. so, if it’s 57%, each shot would be at 57%

    Thank You for the {MEME}

    I'm sure the wvw dev they're trying to hire will get on it right after the foundation work for alliances is complete.

    Man... I figured they’d still need to ‘buy the land’ before they started on the foundation..
