I can honestly say the bombs usually aren’t too bad on the Squatch hunts, after hunting with them every day for a month, there were only a handful of meteors that were unplayable due to bomb holes, and they were mostly someone new, not Max.
ON a recent hunt we (@wakeNbake) gave out free bombs and damage augments, and fought one entire meteor using nothing but bombs.
It was quite possibly the most fun I’ve ever had on a hunt. One player opted out, and hid in the bushes until it was done, then rejoined on the next meteor, but not a single player complained.
I believe it’s mostly about your outlook. Sure, it sucks that you died, and maybe fall damage should be reworked, but this was not trolling, and generally damage bombs are not used to troll. Nerfing the heck out of everything is not the way to remove trolling, because the trolls will always find a way.
Would it have been better if it was a 3 x 3 x 65 deep hole instead? Because you still would have died if it had been made with a shovel and hammer rather than a bomb. Should we nerf the heck out of shovels as well, just in case someone uses those in a way you don’t approve of?
If anyone genuinely wants to be reimbursed for the cost of their pies and brews, let me know and I’ll help you out. It’s not fair for you to be out of pocket. It’s also not fair to have everything fun or useful be nerfed out of the game due to a rare issue, that has minimal consequences.
