It was one of SKR's more infamous comments. He essentially said people wanting rule support for slings beyond being a s#%+ty bow were pretty much asking for a functional "water balloon" fighting style and Paizo didn't have time to deal with their insane crackpot demands. All delivered with the condescension such a statement implies.
In retrospect I don't know if it was as vicious as I remember it, but I really don't care enough to look it up. Aw, yeah, screw checking sources!
Ninja'd: Okay, good to know I was pretty much remembering it right.
It is worth noting that after leaving Paizo, SKR threw up a blog-post about his new project where he more-or-less admitted that he was wrong about the whole water balloons thing.
Anyway, back to slings: anyone else want to comment on the issue one-handed reloads when using Ammo Drop/Juggle Load? Given that being able to use them with a shield is an advantage a couple people in the thread have touted, I would like to know if that's something that you can actually do while full attacking.
