Re: 2.9 Beta 1 - Preview changelog

Those are some pretty major nerfs to Eldar, I have to say. - Wasn't the Eldritch Storm literally just buffed up from 100 damage to its current state because putting it at 100 was too much of a nerf? Why instantly revert that? - Why change the Aspect of the Reaper? Who would buy it now? As I recall, ...

Re: The Issue with Eldar

Re: The Issue with Eldar

the avatar not only buffs all his allies, Allied infantry units within 20 radius do 30% more damage, receive 30% less ranged damage, and are immune to suppression. Passive ability. The buffs have already been mentioned, and while really powerful on paper, they don't mesh well with Eldar composition...

Re: The Issue with Eldar

In my personal opinion, the issue with the Avatar is that it's designed to support a large, probably leveled, standing army in head on engagements. Since Eldar are so squishy, it's very easy for them to lose forces, and since the only late game 'recovery' unit they have is the Seer Council, numbers ...

Re: Apothecary things

Spam out heals is not really possible, as you will run out of energy after 2, presuming you managed to extend the engagement for 16 seconds. You seem to be under the impression that the only time Apo can heal is during fights. That is not the case. Accumulated damage taken over the course of severa...

Re: rangers xd

I must have worded it badly, but what I meant that the only thing that scale for ranger is their sight and keen sight. And since those are the only things that do scale and not really the unit itself in its designed role equals the unit is designed poorly. I know that most T1 scale (although leveli...

Re: rangers xd

They would still function at range 55 and half the roster of every race is a copy and paste of something else with a few minor adjustments. See Tacs, CSM, SS and Pred, Looted Tank, CSM Pred. Weapon ranges are usually similar (Tacs 38, CSM 38, DA 38, Shootas 38, Hormas 38, GM 38, SS 38) because fuck...

Re: rangers xd

What makes Rangers so special that they merit range 65? So that they can have some actual benefit maybe, and not just be a copy paste? And the detection range 40 I did not know about until now. I am sure they really need the extra 10 compared to Tics, Catachans, Scout Sargeants, Warriors, etc., etc...

But kinetic pulse doing such huge splash damage atm runs cont...

Re: Ranger kinetic shot

I am strongly in the "Current Rangers are interesting but OP" camp. Reducing the kinetic shot damage, or even removing it, would be fine in my book. It doesn't deal *any* damage unless you drop an extra 20 power on the upgrade. [Edit: thought it dealt no damage out of gate. Remember that ...

It doesn't sound like it should be right, but it is indeed completely true.

When it comes to hp T2 Falcon isn't the sturdiest but still by far the hardest to kill/easiest to keep alive out of those transport. Rangers and Eldar heroes are imo the main reasons for that combined with the high damage. I know. And I agree with the idea that it can be kept alive. What I was disp...

Yes, because IG can easily be base-locked in T1 and lose their entire power. And Eldar can easily lose their power to an aggressive push, in addition to needing said power to support their power-dependent roster. At the same skill level that will never happen with eldar. They might not be baselocke...

Being expensive has little to do with it from a balance standpoint as it's one of the first things that'd be considered for change if a unit underperforms or overperforms.
