Cold Weather Hailfire Droids Range Reduced to Zero

Post#1 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 2:54 pm

The stats don't reflect this but the user experience in game after the latest update (today) has reduced the range of cold weather hailfire droids to zero.

They literally close to and kiss the turrets before they fire.

It appears they also went right through the walls? Maybe they were trying to improve pathing.

Rebels already have too much range on units, just makes sense to reduce range on the one thing that has a range of 10.... Sarcasm.

I am hopeful that this is just a hiccup. It does seem that fairly often any unit is prone to forgetting that it doesn't have to cuddle with building X to shoot at it. The sentinel is the most guilty of this in My opinion. How many times will I drop that thing to kill dekas and he barrels into a base (into turret range) before deciding to turn around and start shooting the enemy deka.
OMISQUAD and OMISQUADBLACK Always looking for those that enjoy good company and good base crushing.

What the heck?

My hails are just rushing to their dooms! Are you kidding me?

This is so unbelieveable. I'm not sure whether I should be angrier at the game for screwing up one of the two viable units free-to-play Rebel players have (the other being tauntauns), or whether I should be angry at myself for expecting an update to go smoothly and be playable.

Does anyone know if cold-weather Umbaran mobile heavy cannons do the same thing (range of zero)?

Does anyone know if hailfires work normally without the cold-weather equipment?

EDIT: Base just got attacked. Watched the replay. The blessed cold-weather MHCs have a range of 10 just fine.

I. hate. this. game. sometimes.

Confirmed:

Hailfire droids without any equipment activated have normal range on Hoth.

Hailfire droids with equipment activated have a range of zero on Hoth.

Cold-weather MHCs do the exact same thing as you are reporting for the Cold-weather HFDs

I think every Cold Weather unit is affected by this bug
Do or do not, there is no try.
