Re: D-cannons and what they are now

Scotus don't have as long sight range as rangers and cannot infiltrate as long. I also don't play with sounds on so not particularly sure what to make of that comment. But seeing the P-dev shot slowly travelling forward allows you to hit retreat. It also lets vehicles dodge it. D-cannons you don't s...

Re: Catachan booby trap sight range too high

Well without the sight range you'd have to have uber awareness to instantly notice there is an enemy within a close range to the IED and blow it up in time, within a few seconds. It also gives the IED some other utility, shame on you for not having a detector vs catachans. IEDs are energy and time i...

Re: D-cannons and what they are now

The way I see it it doing all of its damage in 1-shot was the problem. They are quite spammable in the late-game and due to the long range and rangers with the long line of sight often 2 d-cannons will shoot your units from outside of the fog of war and insta-wipe it. At least with p-devs you can se...

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

70hp/s is bonkers, It is a get-out-of-jail-free-card that WL doesn't deserve to begin with even in T3 and it doubles as a way to heal up your walker without having to devote much time to repairing it. For comparison the dark age of technology is pitiful for almost the same cost. I wouldn't say it's...

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

Don't think ogryns need buffs. Am very confident the gigantic sentinel nerf and large GM nerf will combine to make IG pretty trash. Can't have both, that's way too big of a nerf. IG are extremely reliant on their t1 and not only that their early game and suddenly both aspects are going to be nerfed....

Re: Strong/Weak MU 1v1

WSE is amazing vs IG and on very large maps. I don't think FS is better at anything than warlock. Well, she has a better late-game, but the WL just is so much better in T1 that is all that matters in 1v1 and even in 3v3 most of the time you'd rather have a WL than a FS just for his immolator to coun...

Re: 3v3 Faction War Tournament with Prize Pool

I agree with Olev.

On a different note I do think OM should be banned and I also think mirrors should be allowed. It's just a different match-up and eldar 3v3 mirors are nice, plus orks and nids. It's just boring-ass marines that have awful mirrors. Player's faults for playing EZ, boring races.

Re: Strong/Weak MU 1v1

Apo vs CS is very hard for the CS. Apo also shits on the WSE.

CL vs other chaos heroes, CL wins.

LG is the best in IG mirrors.

IG in general vs nids is very brutal, but I think IQ in particular is monsterous.

I really don't believe this myth that eldar are a "high level faction", a high "micro" faction, a "high apm" faction or a particuarly difficult to play in any way. It requires a different mindset. I think if you play eldar as the first race ever in the game you'll find ...

Re: Whirlwind Idea

The manticore is pretty rarely used in 1v1 as well, shit even Pdevs are, but I certainly don't think any of the 3 units need a buff. They're all OP in 3v3 and in 1v1 they do their niche role really well, it's just a niche role there since 1v1 tends to be far less static.

Re: Same thing happened to eldar in dowpro

there has also been a high level 1v1 league recently so you should check out the games there. They show the brutality of 1v1 in a far more representative manner. You can find most of the games casted on various streamer's channels predominantly the event's host Adila's: https://www.twitch.tv/adila610

Re: Same thing happened to eldar in dowpro

There's replays everywhere but I guess you've only just returned and thus aren't seeing them immediately. Just come and join a high level 1v1 lobby. Look on the ESL for eldar games with players of an elo of over 1800. Watch the league games between SM and eldar.

Or ask to play some games vs me.

Re: Future balance direction

Should be balanced around 1v1 obviously. The only factors around team games that need to be looked at are large AoE attacks and buffs/debuffs that affect multiple units in an area. Which is exactly the direction that pretty much all of the high level playerbase agrees on and is being taken by cyris...
