Re: 2.9 Patch: Upkeep and Pop Values.

And to the OP, no, there's nothing there to account for the fact that there are clear balance reasons for upkeep differences between a lot of the mentioned units. Sentinels don't bleed yet offer ways to bleed enemies and exert pressure in t1. Makes sense they have higher upkeep to compensate for tha...

Re: 2.9 Patch: Upkeep and Pop Values.

Superb write-up! It really clarifies a lot of the reasoning behind changes to pop and upkeep. But I'm curious, if pop/upkeep standardization is based roughly on the cost of a unit, how will changing the cost of a unit based on balance decisions affect its pop/upkeep? It seems like "no, it won'...

Re: Why do Raveners have to give up their devourer to upgrade?

They're a great melee unit with the upgrade when you consider that they can have TGs/genes/rippers/horms/warriors supporting them, you got to take it in the context of the race. And of course the upgrade allows them to be affected by melee synapse. As far as I'm aware the high level consensus is tha...

Re: Give CL immolate a minimum range?

Yeah, this is long overdue. Quite simply combi bolter -> anti-ranged upgrade vs halo for anti-melee. Halo is totally pointless atm, rage gives regen, combi bolter kills melee better because it doesn't even leave him vulnerable in melee due to the immolate being castable on the ground...

Re: Removing maps in 2.9

Don't touch any of the retail maps, that's a real dumb idea. It is important we remove the really bad quality novel elite maps because it makes the mod look like a mod rather than an awesome DLC package which is how it should feel if we want to bring retail players to the mod.

Re: Please explain to me how IG T1 does not suck

IG are amazing. Best T3, best fully invested T2. Best initial early game, but they are bad if you get into a very heavy t1. The trick is being able to do maximal pressure right at the t1 start and either fast tech without leaving yourself vulnerable to a bash OR not committing too heavily into the t...

Re: D-cannons and what they are now

Scotus don't have as long sight range as rangers and cannot infiltrate as long. I also don't play with sounds on so not particularly sure what to make of that comment. But seeing the P-dev shot slowly travelling forward allows you to hit retreat. It also lets vehicles dodge it. D-cannons you don't s...

Re: Catachan booby trap sight range too high

Well without the sight range you'd have to have uber awareness to instantly notice there is an enemy within a close range to the IED and blow it up in time, within a few seconds. It also gives the IED some other utility, shame on you for not having a detector vs catachans. IEDs are energy and time i...

The way I see it it doing all of its damage in 1-shot was the problem. They are quite spammable in the late-game and due to the long range and rangers with the long line of sight often 2 d-cannons will shoot your units from outside of the fog of war and insta-wipe it. At least with p-devs you can se...

70hp/s is bonkers, It is a get-out-of-jail-free-card that WL doesn't deserve to begin with even in T3 and it doubles as a way to heal up your walker without having to devote much time to repairing it. For comparison the dark age of technology is pitiful for almost the same cost. I wouldn't say it's...

Don't think ogryns need buffs. Am very confident the gigantic sentinel nerf and large GM nerf will combine to make IG pretty trash. Can't have both, that's way too big of a nerf. IG are extremely reliant on their t1 and not only that their early game and suddenly both aspects are going to be nerfed....

Re: 3v3 Faction War Tournament with Prize Pool

I agree with Olev.

On a different note I do think OM should be banned and I also think mirrors should be allowed. It's just a different match-up and eldar 3v3 mirors are nice, plus orks and nids. It's just boring-ass marines that have awful mirrors. Player's faults for playing EZ, boring races.

Re: Strong/Weak MU 1v1

Apo vs CS is very hard for the CS. Apo also shits on the WSE.

CL vs other chaos heroes, CL wins.

LG is the best in IG mirrors.

IG in general vs nids is very brutal, but I think IQ in particular is monsterous.
