Re: IG Spotter Infiltrate

I think they would be imba if their sight was equal to their range.

The name is a bit of a misnomer because the "spotters" themselves don't do any spotting.

Ideally the sentinel or a flanking hero should be the IG t1 spotter, then you have storms in T2.

I don't think that's true if you make them blow up prematurely with AoE such as sentinel missles or catachan ol reliable.

Re: Sniper scouts overhaul

Scout snipers are ALWAYS going to be inferior on a holistic side by side comparison to rangers because rangers are economical suicide to loads of compositions. In a 1v1 when the heck can you afford dual rangers? It's super rare. Sniper scouts far less so. Why? Because you always lead 2 scouts or eve...

Re: 2.8 Consensus Changelog (Part 1 of 2)

Looking at the IST changes with the increased cost of the sarge and thus IST getting their durability in t1 much later if at all, they will be forced off much sooner. I see this is an issue due to them being the primary melee counter. Them losing their kb on demand grenade will also make them much w...

Re: How do you feel about a Mod name change?

Elite Balance Mod is certainly an option.

Doesn't sound as hopelessly dry as anything "balance-mod" related. Maintains the Elite bit as well for branding purposes. But should be significantly less off-putting for newbies. I mean "Elite Mod" is quite sharp.

Re: Solution to Sniper Spam?

Just be tanky and aggressive. Or fast tech for a quick vehicle. Snipers can't gen bash. The reason snipers are a problem in 3v3 is because their opponent may not know how to deal with it and lets them continually build up. They then just go around switching lanes taking out your teammates for a fre...

Of course they are also good vs stuff like eldar who go something like 3x shuriken and thus you can quite easily end up wiping their SUTs with the stikkbombs. Never buy stikkbommaz since the ne...

Games on the ESL log labeled Elite 2.7.2 I could only watch with the 2.7.2 patch. Recent games just labeled Elite I could only watch with the 2.7.2 full.


Correct.

They're separate patches so not compatible.

We could see if we changing the damage type to make it do specifically less vs vehicles could be an option and perhaps combine that with a smaller nerf. Perhaps 150 damage, not 100?
