Re: Patch 2.9.5 Released!

While I played with the big boys actively I was quite good. Right now it's impossible to get a team together as this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AB1qlDgzGM so I just turn on the game and join the first lobby I get into, and rather than play the same shit I played over and over again for a ...

Re: Patch 2.9.5 Released!

I have over 2500 hours in this game. During the past year I've regularly seen good players lose Tac squads to the first Horma engagement. Not even full health Sluggas who get a knockdown do this. Their chase potential is insane, they spread out far so that they take way less damage than intended, th...

Re: Patch 2.9.5 Released!

Even though Shees exist - Hormas are the single strongest chasers in the game. Their damage is incredible, their spread (due to leap) ensures no indirect fire actually dwindles their numbers while they approach and the leap actually includes damage (unlike Stormboy leap) and not only ensures a long ...

Dawn of Tradeoffs

There is an increasing trend in the balance patches and game design which I wanted to address and talk about: the units/upgrades with no trade-offs. An example of a good trade-off is the Heretic squad: if you upgrade it with Grenade launchers - weapons very powerful for dealing with a certain type o...

Place-switching unit portraits

Hey all! As most of you know in vanilla DoW if you make a unit and their portrait appear in the top right corner - the portrait is fixed to that position and doesn't move until it (or some other unit before it) dies. In DoW Elite the positions change depending on the hotkey which is great for a lot ...

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

What will be left? If Hormas have nothing left without chase what do Sluggas and Heretics in t1 have? If Hormas have nothing left without leap and jump over obstacles what do Sluggas, Heretics have? If it's okay for them to chase better then Shees why don't they drop harder than Shees? What do you m...

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

Oh and this whole time when I said leap I meant jumping in general. Not just leaping into combat but jumping over obstacles (which actually spreads them out, not the leap).

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

Leap will still negate basic rules of the game. It's like saying all players have to tap the ball while playing basketball, but one player on one team can carry it like playing rugby ONLY while everyone else is watching him. Why? You've solved one problem, but they will still easily negate suppressi...

How is that a valid argument? Who here claimed that Scouts should beat Hormas in melee? Scouts were only ever mentioned in the context of shotguns not doing what they are designed to do because Hormas spread the way they do because of the leap. We mentioned Tacs and melee, but the issue here isn't &...

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

You can't just compare two units from different factions and decide one is shit because of that. You either look at the big picture and the place of each unit in that picture or we are not discussing balance but comparing specs. Those are two very different things. For example I could argue this: Su...

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

The issue isn't about how many shotguns you make. The issue is that the one shotgun you make doesn't do what it's supposed to do to a t1 melee squad (or any tier melee squad) so the fine balance of countering stuff is gone. He mentions 3 shotguns to prove a point: that you need a lot more for a sing...

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

I literally came to the forum to whine about Hormas just now. Hormas have been just mental for ages now. I've been saying this ever since the Elite Horma buffs but I think the issue with Hormas is more with the leap. I simply think they should have no leap and that would make them way more balanced....

If they stand behind cover and you do that - the KB from ...

Like I said - I'm only sure of the things I've said about IG and Orks. I could be wrong about Shees.
Shields go down just like IG walls go down (plus just like bunkers gent cancelled in the same "walkover" fashion). Increase health of shields, give it green cover - should be fine. :)

Re: 2.5.X Balance

I don't know where you're getting 't1 tanks' from. Their melee skill is part of what makes them useful to begin with as, without specials, they do very poorly against most other melee squads. More often than not they reach squads with full model squads, something that most melee squads in t1 don't ...

Re: Are Imperial Guard Stromtroopers inflexible?

If you are in t3 and you need firepower - get Kasrkins. They have a lot more staying power (don't lose models as easy as storms) and have higher DPS afaik. Same burst, more versatility with the melta bomb etc. If you need av in t3 - get a Lascannon. Really, Storms are a very t2 unit.

Even though it gives nice ranged fire resistance, the Cata nade rarely helps with suppression. Source: been using it for ages.
