Re: Spotters and Catachans

I think an increase in energy cost for ol reliable wouldn't be such a bad thing. It's low cost and 30 second cooldown means you can use it to open engagements, and then get another shot in at the end for retreat kills, all while still being able to use shotgun blast as anti melee Otherwise, like odd...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

No one has mentioned globals or buffs so I'm presuming we all mean default nemesis strikes. I'll double check on the charge, you may be right but I need to dig in Cope's to be sure. Also he was talking about 2x sluggas, hormas things of that nature. I presume you can add tics to that list. https://...

Re: (Suggestion) Tzeentch CSM Champion alteration

Since MoT is essentially Thousand sons, aspiring sorcerer would be perfect. If you wanna get freaky you could: - Increase damage or health granted by MoT (prefer health) - Decrease speed of MoT marines - Have AC increase speed back to normal - Stun on AC loss? The AC himself would get a staff/model ...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

Atlas you should test ingame and see what happens. SS specials for sure are way better than ASM's and Raptors (which are not dedicated melee as Torpid reminds us). And we are not talking in a vaccum here. ASM, Raptors and shees go into the fights against mostly full hp enemy melee, while SS do a li...

Re: (Suggestion) Tzeentch CSM Champion alteration

You could just make the AC cheaper and increase the cost of the marks to compensate for bleeding. MoT is somewhat underwhelming in most matchups anyway though, it's not only the AC that's the issue

Re: Are Purgation OP?

I think the real question that needs to be asked is whether GK need all their other soft counters to vehicles now that they have a lascannon. Remember all their "soft" sources of AV came from them not having a lascannon. Many of them have become harder counters to cope with a lack of las: ...

Re: 2.9.1 What is the current role of Genestealers?

They are melee superiority, but they are also not initiators. Either open with something else to disrupt an army, or use them to guard your ranged blobs. Similar to bloodletters, they have high damage and relatively low infantry hp. Both can be focused down by ranged fire quite quickly, but excel on...

Re: 2.9.0 Released! Post-Release Roadmap included.

Sorry it's poorly worded. The ASM change is an experimental fix to instances where the squad would jump but leave a squad member behind occasionally. If it works, it'll expand to all of the jump squads. Atlas, why is this change not in the changelog? Isn't that the point of it in the first place? T...

Maybe ask to borrow it for a few hours?

I'm afraid that without any testing we can't really eliminate any problems. The next best suggestion i can think of is a wireless repeater, but that costs money and may not even fix the problem

Why the extra map pack at all? What is the difference even in DL size, and why do people still have issues with that?

Re: 2.9.0 Update and Roadmap

The problem there is that it feels like an unnecessarily heavy nerf to the power fist/teleport combo. I suppose you could combine an increase in the energy cost on the teleport and a reduction in the energy cost of flesh over steel and/or battlecry with the power fist equipped. But then you risk po...
