    Greetings Cosmonauts!
    Just wanted to leave a head's up here for players as their planets head into their morning reboots.

    After numerous conversations over an extended period of time (I know that many of you have previously seen the OG polls about pearls), on the forums, reading thread after thread, in the teamspeak having frank discussions and brainstorming sessions, and talking with the development team we have come up with what we hope to be a balanced compromise of both sides of the Enderpearl debate.

    After Reboots:
    Enderpearl spam will be limited
    averaging about 3 pearls per second
    • This will still allow some decoy pearls for those that choose to use that evasive tactic
    • This will help alleviate some of the pearl spam many players complain about
    • This will help ensure that only one pearl lands and limit "double pearling"

    Soul Pearls will follow the same cooldowns as regular pearls when thrown
    • This means the qty of Soul Pearls that can be thrown in a second will be limited to about 3
    • This will still allow some decoy pearls for those that choose to use that evasive tactic
    • This will help alleviate some of the pearl spam many players complain about
    • This will help ensure that only one pearl lands and limit "double pearling"
    • This means that nasty Soul Pearl bug that allowed players to "crawl" out of derps will be fixed (Thanks @iFamasssxD and @Vaquxine)

    We found this to be the most optimal compromise for the community as the vote is always 50/50 when considering changes to pearl spam and whether or not we should completely mitigate or leave it be, a common ground if you will for the pearl spammers and the pearl haters alike!

    Consider yourselves warned :)
