Re: Post- 11/17 2.9 Patch Making Stream Notes and Points

Personally i do like the idea of the game having a standardized upkeep per pop cost. That way the upkeep system is easier to follow and balance around. since there is a standard line to follow. If something needs to have its upkeep increased for a valid reason (hormagaunts for example that are more ...

Re: Why are Ogryns SHI?

Yabbaman... Changing the armor type of a units to something else effects balance, thus a balance change. Increasing the HP pool of a unit affects balance thus a balancing change. Both need to be done for an ACTUAL reason other than "it makes sense." for a mod that revolves around balance. ...

Re: Split Battlecry into 2 abilities?

That would actually buff the FC. The Hammer tracking special is bs in the tracking does damage. Which it shouldn't. Units within and the 6.5 or 7 radius AOE should take damage and be knockedback imo. But that is were it ends with the battle cry. If popped the enemy can kite him effectively since the...

Re: Why are Ogryns SHI?

They are your dreadnought with SHI armor. You should not have them start the engagement imo. I think having them follow up after the GMs are committed is the best use of Ogryns. That way enemy has to focus fire them as they are taking large amount of piercing or plasma damage to the face.

Re: Do Catachans really need power melee?

I always liked the idea of more crowd control or them using guerrilla tactics like attacking falling back and them breakin retreat to reengage. And while yes the are few catachans could take on a Space...

Re: How to change the menu music?

Sadly no. You would be changing the Data.sga breaking compatibility with other players so you wopuild no be able to play online.

You used to be able the change the main menu music when Elite's files were not all allocated into a single file (the SGA). But not anymore it seems.

Re: Give CL immolate a minimum range?

While yes the damage radius of immolate would still reach the CL at a min cast range of 10. Only models in front of the CL would take the damage which is hardly any value for the ability usage, damage, and would not be efficient usage of the CL. The change means a squad that is able to surround the ...

Re: Chosen CSM help?

Interesting suggestion. But how much damage should the bolters do say same as CSM (which the dps value of is the same from Elite)? Since you would need to out weigh the negative of doing decent damage to your own targeted unit for a buff. I could see suppression immunity a possibility but that would...
