- cost 0 resources.
- takes a few seconds to remove obstacles.
- long cooldown.
- there are plenty of units available that can shoot through obstacles. meaning having them around is a waste of a unit slot.
- they are useless in challenges where you cannot lose a unit, because using them counts as a loss(they disintegrate after usage).
- obstacles are only found in early levels, meaning you'll never need to use them again after finishing those levels.
here is my suggestion on how to fix this: dewick everything, remove all examples, make a new one with a revamped description to remove any references to "spoony" or "bard". the name is solely a Fandom In Joke (and Trope Namer Syndrome at it's finest) that cluttered the description with pointless references to the bard (which isn't what it's about in the first place) that doesn't clear up the trope meaning that doesn't work anymore due to how big TV Tropes is now. Spoony Bard itself as a Take That on bards in general seems tropable, so Spoony Bard should come back with that definition. that way, we get a "fun trope" and a proper trope. and yes, I'm suggesting this precisely because I'm willing to make the page if no one else steps up. beware Engrish though. as for Mechanically Unusual Class, it doesn't need references to the bard or any entertainment profession, it promotes shoehorning (A class called Blade Dancer? Mystical Minstrel? it must be MUC! except they're a regular DPS class and Black Mage with tacked on gimmicks that don't really change the core gameplay of the class). it must concentrate on establishing the fact that the class works and not what stuff we can shoehorn to it.
