This was something I’ve noticed too. But more in the sense of it being that you really have to break those ballistas or have a strong healer on your team because Shellfire can easily wipe you out completely, no matter your strength.
I still get good damage in…if I’m able to make it through the rounds. Which, for the most part, I am. It’s just every now and again I’ll either miss a ballista or just be unlucky and severely pay for it. It can make the difference between a 32k attack and a 9k attack. Which is just…It does wound the pride a bit. As well as feel a bit disappointing for the team.
