Re: 2.9.2 Patch Preview

Re: Interceptors

I’m not fully convinced that they were over performing previously - at least in 1v1.

I can definitely understand complaints from 3v3 though - when used en masse teleporting anti-all does seem toxic.

It was way too harsh of a change though, in their current state they just feel useless

Interceptors

Are currently complete garbage. The Codex states that their Psycannons deal explosive damage as of 2.8.1, but looking back through the changelogs, it seems like the psycannon damage type was changed from Explosive to Anti-Vehicle in 2.8.0, and they haven't been touched since. Can we get clarificatio...

Re: Flesh Hook and Independent Character (Problems)

I'd prefer a straight up rework for flesh hook rather than making squad leaders more or less immune to flesh hook. We could just give it the Full-Auto treatment - turn it into a targeted stun ability rather than a bunch of knockback? It could deal damage on top of the stun, or even a damage amplifi...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

I still say it should cost 20 power 15 too lower for what melee ss can do as no one seems to be getting range ones and that should tell you right there. A 15 power upgrade that adds heath, damage buff, more melee skill and a melee special just too good I think that’s more of a result of ranged SS l...

Re: (Suggestion) Tzeentch CSM Champion alteration

Quick show of hands. Who here DOESN'T think MoT is meant for ranged superiority? I'm willing to bet basically no one will say otherwise. There's no debate here about what role MoT CSM are supposed to have. It's just a question of if the AC does it good enough. I know I'm repeating myself, but don't...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

OM have tons of power taxes, especially in early T2. Melee SS also fall off pretty hard in T2, and struggle to stay relevant in the roster, especially with purifiers competing for a similar role - they need to have a more clearly defined purpose and role in the larger context of OM. Personally I’m n...

Re: 2.9.0 Update and Roadmap

I'm still of the opinion that having Kinetic Pulse deal damage breaks several matchups quite significantly - especially against high model units like tics, termas, etc. Kinetic Pulse should be a control or setup ability, but it shouldnt be a damage dealer - it's way too low risk for having that kind...

Ive always thought that hormas put out wayyyy too much pressure in T1 for their cost. They have high speed and damage and they drop models suprisingly unfrequently.

Re: 2.9 Patch: Upkeep and Pop Values.

Good discussion, but I disagree with a couple of arguments. Population/Purchase Cost I don't think its a good idea nor feasible to rebalance population values based on a unit's initial requisition cost. I think that upkeep should be standardized to be X rate per population, and population values cou...

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

I have very strong feelings about this :) IG T1 lives and dies by Sentinel usage. That unit is the key to dominating the map with IG. No other race has a T1 vehicle that can decap, and the sentinel allows you to put out a significant amount of early game pressure. playing against well-microed sentin...

because upkeep is calculated based on upkeep/model, RATHER THAN Upkeep/Population, every other unit in the nid roster has higher upkeep than gants/gaunts.
