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

What's the ranged leash? usual caveat about 3v3 perspective On warboss changes, I don't think angry bitz needed anymore nerfs? It looks like the intent is to make the warboss less invincible during the charge and add the sustainability after it's been completed? It is one way to deal with ranged bl...

Gosh, this is a small changelog. Not sure this will even encroach upon the vast plethora of balance issues in the game guys. Why have you not addressed more issues???

Re: Rangers are trash why?

In a vain effort to git gud I watched a few dozen Eldar replays of 2.7 games and Rangers featured no more than a fifth of the time. It appears that in T1, 2 x DA, Banshees and SWP (30p) are almost mandatory, as are 2 x Battle Equipment (30p) and Aspect of Strength or Fleetness (20p). Aye. Correct. ...

Re: Rangers are trash why?

You saw a lot of Rangers because you were primarily playing SM, Torpid. You just need them vs SM otherwise infiltrated scout grenades will nullify your shuri play and bleed you as the game goes on. And if you didnt build rangers so that shuris arent reliable because of scouts, what is left to use? ...

Re: The automatic thunder commander

That´s why i mean that it would be more useful in t2 or t3 if it buffs scales with the lvl of the hero like the heal of the apo. I mean I don't really see why it needs to scale past T1 in and of itself... That is why higher tier weapons cost more and that is why hero wargears you can switch out of.

I think the sword needs a litte buff maybe to scale with lvl 20% instead of 15% buff for instance. Otherwise as a sm player u wait almost ever to choose between fist and hammer for t2. Fist is also very expensive. The teleporting thunder is hard to deal and easy to use. I think the teleporter shoul...

Re: Rangers are trash why?

The main problem as an eldar player is that you are not allowed to waste 35 power on a unit which deals almost no DMG just for detection. This money is better spent on a shurikan or to upgrade 1banshee and 1 da for example. Give them more dmg otherwise they are trash. There is a reason why they are...

Literally 2 more referees and we will have as many as we do players.

Comeon guys, it doesn't need to be super-leet-hardcore pro skills you exhibit. Mostly just to have fun enjoying playing in what is a pre-set competitive format. Beer and pie we can all share afterwards together.

I watched the replay again and it was actually 5 sniper shots on the banshee squad and they still didn't lose a model LOL The two shots and a kinetic pulse on the enemy shuriken platform also had no model losses, only tickeled them, and barely disrupted them. Also got a fair amount of sniper shots ...

Yeah AG getting TS is downright silly - them getting dessicators, meh, it makes more sense than BSWB having it, but it is unnecessary as I do not think AG wars are bad. Seriously. That is never happening. AG warriors are tanky enough as it is... Why should a heavy melee squad get a melta bomb. A T2 ...

Re: Should Thorax Swarm Warriors be allowed to use a Barbed Strangler?

Warrior Brood is supposed to get wrecked by power melee squads. Usually you just use the Warrior leap knockback on the power melee squad, kite away with Warriors while staying in synapse range and then rape them with Genestealers... I feel that generally the damage you take going in and out is too ...

Should Thorax Swarm Warriors be allowed to use a Barbed Strangler?

Currently if you have a barbed strangler warrior brood (BSWB) you can choose to buy the thorax swarm (TS) upgrade or the AG upgrade. Once you buy one, you cannot get the other. The AG transforms the squad. Changes stats a bit but you lose your barbed strangler (BS). The TS upgrade merely acts as a b...

Re: OM vs Eldar - Really Struggle

To be fair to you OP, Eldar vs OM is the hardest match-up that OM have by far. It is extremely difficult. Firstly, I do not recommend attempting to fight banshees in melee at all. Even with nemesis focus they are not good enough due to the power melee of the banshees. In addition to that the melee s...

Can't play on Day 1 unfortunately.
