The point of this thread was to balance drills and picks, and everyone except you seems to think it does. Stop arguing about pickaxe damage, this has nothing to do with that.It's an american expression to warn of future cussing. I don't blame you for being a foreign commie and not understanding.
The OP lists 1.5x speed. That 50% increased, for the mathematically impaired, not 10%.
I go back to the idea that pickaxes are not intended to be weapons of any sort. I'm not suggesting their damage is removed, but I would not be upset if such a change was set in place.
