That's what I get for not actually testing the map, eh?

Meh; it's a moot point anyway.

(That means it stops multiple vector knockbacks if they exist)
I understand how they would add... I just really didn't think about it. If you really wanted to make this system perfect I would say to consolidate all knockbacks on any one unit at any time to a single knockback, so that way the system does less work. Not exactly a requirement, though.

No, it's good that he does it the way he does. You don't want a fast timer like that running when you don't need it.

On that note, I shall approve this! One question though: how did you update your post without the "last edited by" message? Special Admin edits?

The Spell Request Thread Done for, unless someone else wants to revive it...
It lasted a damn long time.
