Re: Same thing happened to eldar in dowpro

- https://www.dawnofwar.info/esl/log/10187791 Look like Torpid kicked some ass. What's your point? I just beat the 2nd best player and the best IG pretty easily with my eldar even though in all honesty I played pretty mediocre. IG and eldar have aways been my main two races. They're my mains I'd sa...

Re: Tyranid vs SM late-game

My problem in using Neurothrope vs Terms is their teleport. I definitely have not best micro in the world, but every time I've tried to engage them, they just teleport in melee to Neuro and wreck him, forcing him retreat. Don't have him on his own vs termies, he's more of a support unit. If you hav...

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...

Re: Limiting nob squad purchase to one squad

Frenzy is the main reason why they are OP in Team games. I agree that the main problem of Nobz is Frenzy, but I'd say it can also be for 1v1's as well. It's a relatively cheap upgrade (for what it provides) that makes an already tanky low-unit count squad even tankier, and boosts their damage, and ...

Not having to commit to av in 1v1 is certainly a buff for someone fighting such units, but then again not a single mention of how much hp they'd get or would have to have to equal vehicle armour. What if a carnifex is 5000hp unit at least and swarmlord is circa 6000hp superunit? Also, isn't base-he...

Because he'll just drop out and QQ after 3 losses in a row like he did before?

He has plenty of opportunities to fight good players anyway, but he dodges because he knows he will lose as he is not remotely top tier.
