After Burner

would like to see the fairness of it using energy to recharge. but also would like to hear some other's thoughts on this first.

I like it not using energy, since we are limited to 100, which goes fast, and there isn't a lot to find. (Besides the energy centers). I think it could go a little faster however, and have a sound/louder sound effect to track/find people.

@ Dusty - same here, afterb. a little slow and sound needs boost or tune-up :
its just not that "push"-feeling like you had in d2/d3 - maybe its also the boost-movement, i mean, as in how the ship accelerates and then decelerates... in a kind of " fluid" motion.

It seems and feels alright to me for the game.

I always feel like when its time to flee I never have enough AB - having an extra option to drain energy in a pinch could be an interesting gameplay addition. Will stick on the suggestion list. Maybe do it like a double-tap? I've already run out of usable fingers.

or just continue to hold down the button and it will start to drain your energy once it's own charge it depleted.

Afterburner shouldn't be a sure escape method. It is so easy to make a turnaround with just a pack of concussions and a shield orb.

Remember it will be the pros who exploit them.

please get rid of the shaking animation of the whole hud when using the AB.
its really off-putting and its annoiying as hell - this is where i would say that it was solved perfectly in d2/d3
