    recently a developer changed the math on how airblast works, and this has caused some controversy

    as of this post time, KorraArena is on the "old math", and Bending is on the new version

    please try them both and please vote on the poll which you prefer. it will be much easier for me as a projectkorra dev to use the version on bending, but I will do what needs to be done if enough people want it

    new ones easier to control and more beginner friendly, which makes a nice change with most of bending

    Everyone that has a lot of experience playing air* While I disagree with wanting to keep bending-airblast, the points that people are making in favour of it are completely valid.
    It's more beginner friendly and is much more generous if you don't quite land it. The problem is that in doing so, it reduces a lot of the depth and potential the move had previously. A lot of really useful techniques can't be done anymore with how the new one is coded.

    For example, if you blast into the ground, old airblast had you carry the momentum and allowed you to spring off of the ground and chain into another airblast. New airblast completely stops momentum and movement when you hit the ground altogether.

    (less important note but the new airblast also is very oddly coded. If you blast sharply downwards or chain airblasts in certain directions, there is a very noticeable "lag" where it pushes you, then you pause, and then it pushes you another ~5 blocks for some reason. This isn't as important but it should be noted that the lack of fluidity is much less satisfying to use)

    Overall it comes down to: Ease of use vs. Depth:

    People that main air hardcore favour depth, Newer players and people that can't or don't wish to put the time in would likely favour ease of use.

    hi, i'm mafuyusato, PhanaticD u said that it was going to be the old math, but now i can't even chain, and i can barely chase an earthbender. We asked for the /ka one, not a weaker one.
