    Pir? WAT?
    They had to retcon Piranha as a merger of Pir and Hana due to Wip3out's typo of the team: Pirhana.

    Hah! I knew it! I'm not mental! I always kept typing Pirhana until i actually noticed it is not spelled that way (which was super odd to me) Didn't know it was an actual typo during development xD

    @Ace3000 I know! But Pir seems doesn't have any logic in the Team name, or no? P:
    Hana instead is very fine, since in Chinese means Flower, and in the Wiki is listed first as a Chinese Team, that's perfect! :3
    But Pir? Piiiir? P:

    The amount of energy transferred from an enemy to you from a leech beam depends on the distance from you and the target.
    The shorter the distance too the target, the more energy you steal (An negative correlation).

    And after a bit of experimenting, the fastest rate of energy transfer from a leech beam is about 5 transfers per second.
    Since each transfer steals on average 4% energy and the beam lasts for 3 seconds, I can make a rough estimate for the maximum amount of damage that can be inflicted by a leech beam is:

    4 x 5 transfers = 20 x 3 secs = 60 Damage! The equivalent to a plasma!
    This is under the bed case scenario of being right next to your target and not losing the beam, this also varies depending on shield ratings of the craft. This also only applies for single race mode where the weapon damage is lower, Eliminator could see a leech beam take you from 100% - >20% in that time depending on shield ratings again.

    @snake: how did you test it? 2player mode online, offline?

    Yeah I used offline split-screen mode, I tested for the average damage it does and max transfer rate. Its only a estimate I gave.

    so i tested this for myself in offline split screen with triakis attacking icaras. snake is right in saying that distance makes a difference, but his numbers are incorrect. leech beam inflicts 7 damage to your victim at maximum distance, and 19 damage at close range.
    if icaras attacks triakis it's 6 damage at maximum distance, and 15 damage at close range.

    Interesting that, I think your set up probably has more reliable results because it seems I missed something in my test.

    i tested leech beam again, this time in eliminator mode. at maximum distance it inflicts 24damage, and 67damage at close range.
    a plasma inflicts 89damage. but the most powerful weapon is the rockets item at close range, it means instant kill!
    all victims were icaras

    Random fact 1, WOHD has split screen, because Karl Jones challenged Zico that he couldnt get it working.
    Zico won the challenge.

    Random fact 2, Harimau was named after a sub-species of Tiger
