    I'm reopening this thread for discussion.

    We've done quite a bit of bugging on this issue since it's been reported. Initially, we were unable to reproduce this problem without verified results. It was explained by the Battle Server developer that the problem was most likely exacerbated by latency. 

    However, after continuing investigation into this issue, it was determined there is a specific but uncommon case where the Bomber would deal ZERO damage to targets (which was not intended).

    We're working on a fix for this issue at this time and it should be ready soon. However, in order to address this bug, we may need to adjust the visual stats in the stat block on the Bomber UAV to reflect the correct scale of damage. 

    tl;dr -- Any stat changes to the Bomber UAV will not be a nerf. 

    I hope to have more information on this fix as soon as possible. Thanks for your reports. 
    I like how the tl;dr had to be made bright orange :D

    Sounds about right the only problem is they won't change and they do stuff like hide the hornet UAV on some extra server somewhere under a rock for like 2 years, it had longest range in game besides the enforcers for a long time.

    tl;dr -- Any stat changes to the Bomber UAV will not be a nerf but may result in a change in the numbers. 

    Why does this statement give me a bad feeling that a nerf is coming

    Honestly, if any weapon currently in the game needs a nerf it's this one! When an entire base can be flattened from the doorway, it needs to be nerfed!

    I only built one drac carrier because of this bug. Glad to know it's being fixed, I might do an entire fleet. 

    Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

    Course it won't be a nerf. Can't have things breaking the game now can we?

    funny enough i noticed this as well i think it the splash damage that kills more than anything .. ie splash damage splashes off a nearby target to do the actual damage to intended target then it chains and does it again.

    i might be wrong but that is what it look like it is doing. hard to tell

    Hold on a sec - what does "in order to address this bug, we may need to adjust the visual stats in the stat block....to reflect the correct scale of damage" mean ???

    That doesn't address the bug - it makes the stats reflect what the bug is creating.  That's not a fix at all.  
    Reminds me of one of the old jokes about Kixeye. Anything they don't know how to fix is working as intended.

    Sounds like the drac coax fix is incoming roflmao. Glad I didn't bother building these carriers.

    No, we'll increase the damage stat on the backend, which in turn means that we will most likely need to reduce the stat on the player-facing end to match the new behavior while also closing the bug that causes it to deal zero damage.  Basically, it means that the UAV will perform as it's supposed to, making it stronger, even though the number on the stat may go down.

    It sounds good. Its really disheartening to know that when facing a single ship you need 4 or more launches to kill it. Seeing a wave go in with no damage registered does not do justice to the power of this weapon.

    when will this happen. Im not liking taking more damage then needed when this does not work as intended.

    Doom your 1st reply on this page states if, you continues to have problems contact CS.   Take it CS stands for Customer Support.  Just to remind you the vast majority of players have no access to CS any longer.   The forum is their CS now.   Know everything was lined out meaning deleted but just wanted to remind all MODS about not everyone has CS.
