Here is a small suggestion which should prevent those shield spammer n00bs... -.-"

Allright.

What happens when a n00b goes in shield ? You can't do nothing if you don't have higher pl and then spam his shield with beams.
So I've come up with suggestion. In episode 255 in DBZ, Vegetto used his fist to break Gohan Buu's shield. I think all chars should be able to do it too.

So when a player goes in shield, a another player canstart to struggle his shield.
With fist the attacking player would be pushing the shield while shield controlling user would defend himself. A power struggle bar would appear. If the attacking player pushes the line to top of bar ( red color ), he would vanquish the shield and attack gohan user with basic melee. Shield user which's shield got destroyed would attain basic melee damage + shields right click attack damage.
But on other hand, if Gohan user manages to defend himself, push the line of power struggle bar to bottom of power struggle bar ( blue color ), the attacking player would be pushed in opposite direction, in the speed of basic melee in ESF beta 1.1, dealing the damage of basic melee, shield attack AND perhaps more damage if he gets crushed into wall.

That could be a good idea, however, taking damage from the shield also can be quite painful. Considering that you're struggling, someone can fire while you guys are having fun together. The shield gets stronger and both sides lose some HP unless something is done to protect them from the evil of other people :O

What if the Gohan decides to power up and shield while you're on the ground, What next? And what if there are two Gohans shielding at the same time, what will happen? A shield struggle?

Gohan decides to power up? You mean transform ? And then attack you with shield ? Nono. Only attacking player can attack the shield user. Not vice versa. And a shield struggle would be, uh, xD, not possible ? Cause only if someone DECIDES to struggle shield, the ps would be able to be created.

So if the attacking player is swooping at Gohan, and Gohan decides to activate the shield, the attacking player will be in a struggle without choice. If Gohan has more powerlevel, the attacking player does not stand a chance. If the shield struggle were to occur, the attacking player would lose to the ki-drainage. This making Gohan invincible to any attack, because he can also use the shield in the transformed state, making it diffcult to attack him if he's transed.

I don't think the shield needs to be changed.

If someone is n00b enough to spam it, he doesn't have the skills to fight properly without it. Just attack him when he's not using it. Or use a Disk.

It could be abused, in such a way that every gohan player would jsut use the sheild attack, stop infront of another player and automatically start a struggle.

yeah..but u could make it drain ki at a decently fast rate..so its hard to spam..and when running its already hard enough to spam shield properly..since u have a little pause as your charge up the shield beam..leaving you wide open for attack..u can spam it all you want..u just wont do dmg...lol...with this..at least it gives a chance for people to break the spam..

yea if ki drains a bit more then now, it might work. The shield does slow the game down a bit, and this will keep the action going.

Uhhh, or you could just shoot a bunch of beams into the shield, because any energy put into the shield takes energy away from the user.

Not only that, but who would use the shield? No one. It defeats it's purpose.

Well, if attacking player is swooping at Gohan and Gohan activates the shield, nothing would happen unless attacking player presses secondary mouse button twice, to activate shield ps. And during shield ps, the shield user should have extra ki usage.

Um.

The shield is not overpowered; it does what it does well, and that's it. If someone turtle's the shield, they're buying time at the price of ki. If someone uses it intelligently, they're going to make a few good moves to get themselves in a more favorable situation.

He can't charge if he's shielding; beams to drain it, lasers, or disks all spell crap to him. Secondly, you can recharge inbetween attacks.

He's delaying the inevitable if he's turtleing, and spamming it really isn't possible.
