Petition to add Deployable Cannons


Recommended Posts

Hello this is a request to add Deployable cannons, something that was voted on to test in wvw, but was later scrapped. With the introduction of the warclaw and it's supply limited siege damage chainpull, and also the future implementation of siege turtles which are sure to follow the same design, I believe the same thing could be use to balance the deployable cannons, with each shot costing between 2-5 supply. I'll leave it it up to anet's Finding Random Stuff On The Ground Coordinator, to pull up the blueprints of this bad boy from the storage closet in the basement to explain it further.

P.S these would work so well in Desert where most of the objective siege is placed in really terribad places and in most cases are limited to the areas they are in and can't defend certain areas of the objective as they do in alpines or ebg objectives, (like inner cannons able to hit outer gates in many keeps).

 

Thank you, this joke suggestion is brought to you by Coke, don't do drugs.

WvW needs more siege spam eh?

They nerfed the power of siege years ago, just like they did for player damage, so the obvious solution is just like the player one, just stack moar spam moar! 😉

Id rather have a siege mount that can seat 15 with multiple siege item attachment so you can roll around with the boys sieging while you get sieged. 

This is the thread you are looking for!

Dont think itl be a good idea atm. Id rather they add in ways to nerf blobs. Give ways for smaller groups to be impactful and harm 1 server just piling up. This just seems like itl buff blobs.

Speaking of which..

Cannon mastery 1: Basic fire removes boons(can hit up to 50 targets).

Yeah, no one uses those things cause its insta death if a blob aoes it. And boon reapplication cancels out the risk. Now if it multiplied its damage depending on how many boons a player had, itd be amazing and worth the risk. Even some ground sitting corruption fields would be a nice change.

Have no fear, the annoying, vocal minority (whose playtime is questionable given their omnipresence on the forums) is here to shoot down any ideas that might make WvW better.

Pls, no. This idea would benefit trolls to waste many supplies without effort. Would be better if u need to refresh with a lower timer (nerf from 1h to 30-15min) cannons, oils and mortar for less supplies (50 supps to rebuild them)?

It would be awesome if we got an item that had unlimited uses that deployed a canon on demand and had a 30 second cooldown so it wouldn’t be too powerful.

We went through this before,the deployable cannons were fun till blobs started mass using them outside of objectives.

That resulted in them easily stripping an objective from all defensive sieges and having easily an advantage due to numbers.

On the other side of the fence there was a case of valley fully decorated with cannons,which as far i remember no one could get close.

I think if moderated to a certain cap within objectives they could be re introduced,it was a fun siege addition but needed limitations.

at this point they might aswell add Sea battles with larg ships / upgradeable cannons / upgradable Hulls / upgradable sails / etc. Something like Archeage has.
