I doubt they will. It will be pretty hard to code.

easy to code, but I haven't looked at their abilities list yet so I can't answer.

Well, that's contradictory. Will they have any special abilities?

As I've said, coding bombs is easy so it shouldn't be a problem if the staff decides to include bombs, but I haven't looked yet at the abilities' list yet for said Corsairs so I can't answer.

Well, bombs would add a bit of strategy to them. In a click of the mouse they can become your anti-structure unit, so it would be good to include something like that for them. But those are my thoughts on the matter.

You mean that it would be better if it's more like a power?.. you use the power and the bombs do heavy damage to targeted building. that would be quite cool yes, but where did you got the idea of firebombs..?

If the bombs get into the mod then they surely won't be like they are in BfME II. They would be used one at a time to start fires on buildings and look like small clay jars filled with Greek Fire in them (look in Kingdom of Heaven if you wish to see a logical example).

I like this idea. The mine doesn't really seem like the right way to describe it though.

Bombs are one big nono. Arg.

I have a few thoughts on Corsairs.. we'll see what happens. However they most certainly wont have fire bomby things...

See what refernces you can find in the books. I must admit it would be very cool, but I can't see it happening unless it was definitely in the books.
