Re: Limit creation of the Eldar Ranger squad

If anything though in 3v3 it should be easier to counter the ranger spam because you can build around it... You can do as piano said going for a heavy t1 pressure gen bash ting, or one player can get energy shields making the rangers worthless, or one can spam melee with a sigil of the rift CS etc e...

You can also use psilencers which outrange the TCSM and ignore cover, but then you h...

Re: Has Ork economy changed?

Nah not really. Tankbusta change is the biggest thing I guess, they'd had some minor nerfs but them and eldar at the time of writing are still the best two races in 1v1 and overall the ork eco functions much the same.

Re: ESL Ladder rework

All this really changes is make it harder to farm noobs, and that only applies if both players have to say "R". That, incidentally is going to dramatically reduce the quantity of ranked games we get on ESL which is horrible for our statistics - we already don't get that many! The ranking p...

Re: Falchou's wing hotkey messup

Elite Mod operates on the assumption that you use grid keys if you are sticking with a default key layout. You can swap to this in the main menu of the game, before entering any lobbies via options. This won't be an option once you are in-game. Keydefaults.lua is the file that can edited to manually...

As above, there's a huge sale on for DOW content atm. You can get DOW2 Retribution, and therefore be able to play Elite Mod for just $7.50, or £5 now on steam.

There's no single person. It's like 10 people. And making Tau would be just as hard, really, probably harder.
