Re: Give CL immolate a minimum range?

I'm still not convinced why you wouldn't save that energy instead for skill the weak and get a full health chaos lord back instead to continue trolling around the map shooting at 38 range 32dps, 100% fire on the move accuracy. The combi-flamer pays off the more he stays in the field without retreati...

Re: Why do Raveners have to give up their devourer to upgrade?

I'd say that they are in fact the ones that support the rest of tyranids melee roster because they provide the only stun available to the faction and disruption on demand. One of the best ways to support melee fight is a targeted stun and disrupt while the worst is simply more squads to throw into t...

Re: Chosen CSM help?

Slaanesh bolters should shoot their allies with warp cocaine for small damage but buff their damage, suppression resistance, speed or melee skill.

Re: Removing maps in 2.9

I kinda like Taros Mining Facility but occasionally it traps respawning commanders behind their own base turret with no escape and that's a bad way to disrupt a 3v3 game so take it out behind the shed and put it out of its misery.

Re: D-cannons and what they are now

Can their base attack get better sparkly eldar effects to show where you're being hit? Firing pattern shouldn't auto track moving units because that shit was cancer in retail, just compare Elite and Retail Zoans for example. More frontloaded damage would be fair if there was a better indication of w...

Re: Catachan booby trap sight range too high

Meanwhile, poor ravener tunnels have no sight, no stealth, 65 energy, takes forever to cooldown and feeds red and xp to even the weakest unit that finds it. Demo charge doing one and only one function does not sound so unfair.

This doesn't seem very true in practice. It could be true that they have a role in every MU but it seems pretty 11situational to see them in high level play, it's hardly every game anyway. Where are you getting your high level tyranid experience without zoans? Mechanically, zoans let tyranid surviv...

Re: 2.9 Balance List as of 10/28/18

Sure, you'll get garrison entry if you trade those devourers to bolt pistols.

Ok then, garrison entry when they get Extended Muscle Coil that loses the devourers AND they get bolt pistols too.
Dual wield bolt pistols on their third pair of stubby arms.

Re: 3v3 Faction War Tournament with Prize Pool

Doesn't seem right that a ban can last through the whole series. That would prevent a team from ever playing the faction they feel strongest with and the less experienced teams would get knocked out quickly without having had a single successful performance.

Re: 3v3 Faction War Tournament with Prize Pool

So it's basically 3v3 team tournament with faction vs faction theme in every individual match?
I have a feeling some factions will be very underrepresented and others overrepresented even with bans in place.

Re: Tyranid Anti-garrison strategies

You can completely blow up a garrison building (2500hp?)with a single spore mine squad I think. It may be worth it to even preemptively demolish a particularly troublesome garrison that your opponents TM, warpspider etc can repeatedly abuse throughout the match. For example, the one overlooking the ...

Re: Nid Economy - Suggestion to Balance Things Out

It's simple, make it so Tyranids T2 is 290/200 and T3 is 280/300.
That should get rid of your unspent power problem and leave a bit of req for you to play with as well.

If this tournament is to settle the question of who is the top player in skill then lack of integrity or honor should not bar a player from entering.

super-heavy infantry with enough of an hp pool are the most durable units in the game. You are comparing units in a vacuum against how they perform against entire armies.
