Of course it's not hard to accomplish, it's just not as efficient. If there's anything overpowered about the lobber, it's that you get to choose the area you hit instead of the corresponding area. You're still net 1 resource for 1 dmg which isn't a very good deal.
lol. We'll have to agree to disagree again. My doing 3-5 damage for what is essentially, two resources, with a terminal unit is fantastic to me, especially considering it soaked up 1-3 damage from another unit or my capitol.
