Re: 2.9.2 Patch Preview

There's a strange bug on genestealers where they appear to heal continuously while not attacking. Not sure if this is intended, and it comes up semi-randomly. They'll continue to have the green healing buff going off, even when they're no longer striking an enemy. you'll be glad to know they aren't...

Re: What's up with Eldar AV?

Well in retail they had the lots of soft AVs because wraithlord/falcon were not too viable (vehicles in general weren't) and then in addition to that brightlances do barely anymore damage than other weapon variants whilst not snaring or having notably longer range. Hence banshee heavy melee/WG AV/wa...

Re: 2.9.2 Patch Preview

I've a question; since the P-devs cost power now, wouldn't it be fair to add one for the assault kit storm troopers and more importantly tankbustas ? I don't see how they're even remotely comparable? Bustas and AK STs are pretty niche units that if you buy in the wrong situation will bleed you far ...

Re: Eldar Ideas

I have thought for a long time that warp throw is op. Making its radius of effect smaller so it is actually something you can dodge without retreat would be nice.

Wraithlords are also without a doubt OP atm, the hp regen needs to be quite a bit lower.

There was talk of changing its damage type to normal melee since it was power melee for most of its life. I don't actually know if that ever happened or not. Don't think it got a simple damage reduction though.

I would take Elite mod Dire Avengers any day compared to retail. At least they don't cost 300 req to buy, and 30 req to reinforce a single model. Same goes for Banshees. The real buff that Elite gave to Eldar is the economy. But rangers don't 1 shot scouts anymore. The autarch drop doesn't instantl...

Their dps has not been changed in ages. It has always been high, albeit not very bursty. The 5 DA models do roughly the same damage as a tac squad.

If there is a need for a nerf, which I don't think there is, this idea is one I'd be down for.

They can get stuck on nearly every map potentially. It's to do with cover that can only be passed via jumping over it/teleporting behind it, and then ending up being surrounded by impassable terrain afterwards. Only ones they won't would be maybe quest's heresy? Something like that... Ashes of Typho...

Re: 2.9.1 What is the current role of Genestealers?

In theory passive heal on hit should make them very strong in 1v1 fights vs other melee in the same way feeder tendrils or icon of khorne+lightning claws makes the LA/CL melee duellist beasts... But it seems it is too low for the genestealers... And I like the idea of genestealers getting a melee ch...

Re: Flesh Hook and Independent Character (Problems)

Annnd in spite of everything everyone still thinks the LA is the weakest nid hero in 3v3. And a lot of people would say he's up there even in 1v1. And even outside of nids, very few people consider the LA top tier anymore... So re-hauling the key feature of the hero, or every single leader's feature...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

I am suspicious of those purported stats on the strike squad special i must admit, but perhaps the extra 25% radius is a bigger deal than it might seem upon first inspection?

And 2 tics should beat nemmy strike squad quite handily I imagine simply because the SS cannot special them.

Re: GK strike squads current state.

I'd target the specials because it is what makes them win fights they shoudn't, for instance against shees or multiple sluggas/hormas. But they should win those fights... They're a melee superiority unit that gets shut down when they charge in blindly and focus fired/suppressed. Without a doubt wit...

Re: (Suggestion) Tzeentch CSM Champion alteration

Agreed with the above. Besides there's a reason plasma tacs are better - they can't be buffed with worship. Still, MoT are clearly lacking and most of that falls on the AC w/ MoT being really really cost ineffective. And that's the case whether plasma tacs existed or not. It was fine in retail becau...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

Are they? 475/15 for a pure melee squad with no movement abilities or ways to counter suppression.

I should hope they do the t1 melee job fairly well at least. Remember banshees are 425/20 with the aspect (right?), but banshees also scale far better.

Mortar teams are more than enough cancer in TT I think... Let's not add that cancer here to. @atlas Looking at the stats it would appear that spotters can out-shoot scouts.
