    Sunkens = Explosion Attack

    I always wondered why sunkens have an explosion attack. It should be a normal one. I would change that in a new patch :sly

    lol. Yeah right but I would like do that the sunken does 20 dmg instead and it would be a normal atack.

    Logical :grunt

    Yeah, but then the Sunken will ONLY ever do 20dmg, rather than a full 40 against Tanks and other such heavily-armored units.

    Yea, but it's not like a sunken ever "actually" hits a tank lol... using tanks without sieging? ludacris!

    (I've always wondered that same question myself about sunken attack damage until Renzo brought up the point about doing more damage to heavily armored units.

    Think of how useless 3 sunkens, doing 20 damage, would be against an Ultra.)

    Sry shaman boy, but you're out the road lol.

    Ghosts have "piercing" attacks like only 2 other units, firebat and vulture which does all dmg to light armor, 1/2 dmg to medium armor and 1/4 dmg to heavy armors. Explosives attack are like Hydras, Goons, Tanks, etc. I mean everything that does a sorta explosion when hitting (not necerely spalsh dmg) and they do all dmg to heavy armors, 1/2 dmg to medium armors and 1/4 dmg to light armors. That's why I was wondering about sunkens cuz' it doesn't seems like an explosion (only a tentacle).
