    What is your suggestion?
    I suggest that..Metal clips is either removed or nerfed

    Why do we need this? or What made you post this suggestion?
    We need this because..it adds nothing but cheap and shitty tactics to bending

    What are the possible negative aspects of your suggestion?
    earth (which is already unloved) loses a move

    What are the positive aspects of your suggestion?
    The good thing about this suggestion is..clips is gone, or is balanced.

    How can this suggestions be achieved on the server?
    This can be done by.. (if this is a plugin suggestion, include a link to the plugin here)
    Removing entirely, which i assume you arent a fan of doing, or increasing cooldown to 1 min and/or reducing the duration to 5 seconds.
    this would stop the instant kill of anything that takes fall dmg (earth fire water chi) while allowing the user to keep a player near them in order to cancel running or set up for other moves.

    I have a video of the strategy being completely unavoidable while;e being used one me, idk how im meant to get it to you as i can only really post gif sized files here and am not sure how to shorten the vid down while also allowing it to showcase the strategy.

    This probably won't happen because I always get asked in game to buff it because "metalcables is useless"

    its an instant kill to anyone that takes fall damage and too easy a set up for flux and instant damage moves.
    Surely something can be done like a way to cancel it? you get hit once and you're sitting there with a target on your back for a few minutes unless they kill you anyway?

    Metalclips is hella uninteractive, Metalcables has a niche use.

    +1. It's not oppressive since only few people stoop that low to abuse it, but they get a lot of shit for doing so.
    When people disable someone's bending and metalclip them into lava, it's almost annoying how often I hear "gosh darn, I have been skillfully been outplayed, you really are much better than I and I commend you on your fair victory"

    +1, It’s basically a troll move at this point, it just works as an annoyance tool and an easy kill

    If I can think of any ways to actually improve the thing ( like implementing some kind of way to escape it ), I will suggest those myself. Until then: +1

    You will be much better off getting me to do a quality improvement rather than "just delete it"

    Make it cancel when you hit the one using it maybe?

    And make it so when it cancels for them, it goes on 5 secs cooldown. That way they cant just use it again right away
