Yeah im sometimes thinking of a SW which blocks normal Shots (not SB or L).
Would be a nice feature.
Maybe u make it with a option _shockBlocksShots [1/0] or so, so that u can set ur preferred method.

Too powerful, each flag has to have a weakness. Sw would be the "God" flag if that where possible.

I agree completely with Blizzard. Shockwave is already one of the more powerful flags, so whats the point in making it even more powerful?

i think thats a good idea as long as it only blocks Normal shots and NOT Laser or other shot

Too bad most people only fire regular shots without finding a flag by the name of Laser or Super Bullet. I agree with Blizzard, this implementation would be too powerful, and too map specific. This and similar flags have been suggested before and rejected.
