Interesting. That would explain why I never noticed, because I *always* micro my bombers.

That said, I tried to reproduce it and failed - what am I doing wrong? :P

Even so, I would still be up for a buff to them.

i played an engy redesign game yesterday and spammed aeon bombers like hell, just watch the game closely and see how minimal movements of the target make the bomber unable to drop the bomb

I see the Aeon tweak has made it through to the balance mod automatically. Does that go for the equivalent fix for the Sera T2 bomber as well?

This would be great, it's very annoying to see your bombers make harmless passes over a defenseless Mantis force that is advancing towards your base.

it would make sense to extends also the stun to at least 3 sec because 1.5 is really too low, cybran arty stun for 3 sec and it's a land unit 4 sec should be ok

with a bomber, you have a high chance to hit the unit before the bomber dies.
a t1 arty is easier to dodge and will probably die to a t2/t3 unit, maybe even without shooting
balancing the stun of the bomber just because cybran has a better stun is not a good idea

what the aeon bomber really needs now is in the description of this topic, after this is fixed we can see if it's underpowered or not

Actually the inverse is true ... may be you didn't know but arti's projectile use the bomber script (what I consider insane) ... so no you will easier dodge a bomber than a arti

The pb here is that stun don't work on unit > T2

It's just for a comparaison dude to show you how 1.5 sec is useless

I am in the topic dude .. If the stun would have be greater the bomber will not have miss so much


Just for info in my 3599 unleashed mod i give to the aeon bomber 4,5 stun and 300 damage and you know what .. this bomber stay a one way bomber and don't change that much .. but this is in the 3599 context where air is not that expensive

I have found out that it's not just the aeon bombers having this problem, several other bombers as well(Namely T2 sera, T4 sera I have noticed) altho T3 tends to do just fine.
