Re: Patch 2.9.3 Change log Preview

No one wants true balance. People just want fun games. Spam is the antithesis of fun. It does not matter how hard or easy it is to counter spam. It is still annoying.

Re: Patch 2.9.3 Change log Preview

Have to agree with Woehlke here. It is absolutely annoying to face 5x flash gits or any of those 5x builds. It is not fun and I see no reason why we should continue encouraging it, as the only one who has fun is the one spamming. If all you can say is "git gud" then have fun how the commun...

Re: Make OM great again.

That's actually a pretty good idea One thing that always annoyed me with OM is that they have a bazillion different abilities. I know that initially OM/GK was designed to be a micro intensive race for top players so I guess that is the reason for that. But it also increases the amount of stuff other...

Re: Two Newbros: Balance at low-level?

Well it is clear that a game cannot be balanced around all levels of play. Wraith Guards for instance, at low levels of play, you blob your army together and when they shoot your army everything just splatters into a pool of blood and you'll say Wraithguard OP! At mid levels of play, you will disper...

They are not trash but not necessarily amazing either. They are a pure utility unit much like the Artillery Spotter Squad. That being said, they can be amazing in T3 to spot for your fire prism or your d-cannon.

Re: Warlock Destructor

The main complaint is clearly that there is no counter-play, which there isn't. Buy an aspiring champion for your tics, keep your hormogaunts/termagaunts in synapse range. Is that no counterplay? If you are up against a warlock you can anticipate the destructor and act accordingly. It only does hig...

It was changed because it was a hit or miss ability and often missed for no reason at all. It is more predictable now to hit at least once and one can better depend on it to properly work. Its damage has been halved though so it has not become stronger or anything like that. Also: whaaat? why would ...

Re: Should Thorax Swarm Warriors be allowed to use a Barbed Strangler?

I like that it goes against the formula "one upgrade for a specific role" and thus adds some flavor. However, it feels like a no-brainer to get as there are no drawbacks. IMO, once you get the upgrade, the squad should fire its barbed strangler less frequently or lose its suppression. But ...

If you play the linux or mac version of Dawn of War 2, you cannot play multiplayer with players who play the windows version. And with elite being a multiplayer mod, it would not really make sense to support the linux/mac version of Dawn of War 2. So I suggest you to rather setup wine. With Wine cro...

Re: Sound bug solution confirmation

This is somewhat known among veterans to reduce the probability of sound bug occurring. Does not completely eliminate it though. It has also something to do with the amount of main memory your pc has.

However, thanks for writing it down for everyone to see.

Fire Dragons got a lot of nerfs already. They bleed heavily and as such I field them rarely as is. Very risky unit but with a very high reward if used correctly.

Because squad costs are computed by an entity basis on the squad. I had only put in 133.33 as the req value, and 1.33x 3 = 399.99, which is justttt not enough to be 400. Just changed it to 1.334 and that did it. That makes sense, thanks for clarification :) What reduction in Webway Gate build time?...
