Re: Is Warlock the only viable Eldar champ ?

Ok, I am only answering because as a pedantic german I am triggered: The Plague Champion has a far lower skill ceiling and skill floor than the Chaos Sorcerer to be absolutely precise. You can get away with so much more fail and still win. Not so as the Sorcerer. Skill floor = The lower the less sk...

Re: Is Warlock the only viable Eldar champ ?

Skill floor = The lower the less skill is required to be effective. Skill ceiling = The maximum capacity for good in-game outcomes being rewarded for skillful play. Higher the ceiling, higher the capacity to be rewarded for being skillful. Lower skill floor for sure, and yeah, probably a lower skil...

Re: 2.7.1 Test Build Changelog (only log for now)

Not the case. You can cap speed increases on a unit so that anything over a certain level won't affect it further. In fact I'm pretty sure that already happens atm with regards to fleet and swift movement. Having seen the planned banshee charge in use it's 'meh'. It is good enough to not make them u...

Re: Is Warlock the only viable Eldar champ ?

Eldar are the faction that require planning and micro-management the most. Charging head on a-move style is not their strength. You'd have to look at Chaos or Orks for that. If you want an easy-to-play race, play Chaos. High Durability, high damage, no bad matchups and overall strong globals. Be wa...

Re: Is Warlock the only viable Eldar champ ?

Warlock is at the moment definitely the strongest hero for eldar broadly speaking. But I think things will be far better balanced out across the three next patch. But fret not regardless because the WSE is perfectly viable anyway courtesy of eldar being one of the best races atm. And being a telepor...

Re: Understanding IG vs SM match up

Manticores are mostly useless in 1v1, even more so in retail where they cost 100 power. I'm pretty sure lemans don't have any damage resistance in retail, so they're basically just bad predators. Slowly and with less dps for a small bit more health. Guardsmen are not viable to fully upgraded in reta...

Re: September-December 1v1 Tournaments

I think in the current state of the playerbase with the low population and differing time zones a league format with some short streams would be better than the larger, 7hour long scheduled events on a weekend.

Re: Tips on dealing with Terminators as Tyranids?

Think you may be confusing terminators for nobs there Broodwich.

That said, even then, nobs will beat genes most of the time since they bleed their models so fast. So it's a risky game. But they are T2 unit. Vs those t3 melee beasts you need T3 support of your own.

Yeah, hold fire does the job. Although there is one fair buff we could do to the battlewagon now that you mention it which is to make its main zap cannon thing rotate faster. It's beyond annoying atm how slow it rotates and there's no reason why.
