Uhg, I don't think I like those pirate balances. The key to pirates is the fact that they were so fast I especially don't like the fact that the lung ability was nerfed since it felt perfect. Especially since it took more skill to use for the most part since unlike all other specials you had to stand in place and lunge in a straight line. Most newbs failed at it.

Oh well, I'll get used to it. It's just making it easier for newbies. :O

I felt like it was too easy for skirms too spam quick attacks until their overpowered special was available to finish you off, not to mention they could turn around and escape if got their health too low.

It's for global banning on all servers for people that hack. Instead of banning them from one server and have them just change servers they are banned from all servers and it must be done by a PVK Admin which is my guess.

This probably isn't doable by each individual server admin so don't worry.

They should add Ninjas... just a thought would be cool and gives them a chance to make more Asian oriented levels and people can argue weather pirates or ninjas are cooler =D.
