A poll to see what the general community attitude is regarding decreasing the size of holes in fortress servers. Unofficial.

No because even if the hole radius gets changed to 0.1, torpedo attacks can still be used.

But noobs will not be able to excecute it, because torpedoing with a hole of .1 would require a fairly right grind, and it would be difficult to fit three people in such a small hole.
Example: fitting three sumo wrestlers into a VW Bug; it is possible, but hard to acomplish.

A lot of people must think reducing the hole size is some sort of deterrent to intentional holing. I think the opposite is true. It stimulates the art of holing. I really like the idea of minimizing the effect of unintentional holes while maintaining holing as a tactic.

It would also be interesting to see another question posed: "Should we increase the hole size in Fortress?" I imagine hardly anyone would agree to that. But is 2 meters really the ideal size? Definitely worth experimenting with.

Eh its fine here (haha in my opinion at least). Definetly smaller holes. It would be the separation line between experienced and unexperienced players in the holing technique. Redundant, I know :P
