Now I can see if you want to give a restriction to a Rumble Seat active Flash, it would make sense, (The Rumble Rider likely does not have a Cloaking system and an extra person without one would tax the Cloak and it would need a few seconds to recover before using it again. This would be a direct exchange for the power delivered by a heavy. But a 5 second restriction regardless? Instant cloaking is the ONLY thing that made the Flash viable on the battlefield. Tank turrets turn around INSTANTLY, and if you do not include the AIM BOTS and Cloak Counter Glitches that are blatantly used by a few PC players, there are plenty enough GOOD players that have no problem back tracking where their assailant hit them from, and then returning fire, killing their target. (5 seconds is a lifetime when it comes to mounting an attack on a large target and hoping to survive long enough to kill it) There were only a hand full of people able to use a Flash longer than to die killing a single target before this nerf. Are you looking to kill them completely? This is a bit unreasonable. A Rumble Heavy Flash was only a real threat against a tank if the Flash drivers skill was very high, this was very rare. People were afraid to even attempt to gun on a Flash because the prior (Skilled Flash Driver) was usually not the case... AT ALL. Also, once again you have accidentally given a major advantage to T.R. The Pillager is the only weapon (Of the 3 new ones) that can successfully, directly engage both vehicle and soft targets and actually have a decent shot at killing both thanks to its high damage and very wide splash. Coupled with its reload and blinding affect fire is supposed to have, it is now the only one that is not really affected by the timer. It can basically lay its own smoke screen while it waits to re-cloak. Vanu as you know is my main and all of these hits are making it murder to actually ENJOY playing with this faction. The answer to balance was not in messing with the cloak, but in turning all of the new Flash weapons into N.S. class weapons. That way everyone had a choice as to what they wanted to run and could not complain.
