Re: 2.9.8.4 Patch Notes and Download Links

Yeah I seen loads on the old patch too. Jeez. Hard to think we can communicate it even harder - I even put patch notes out myself. I guess we need big ol' Indrid too. Maybe just make a youtube post.

Re: 1v1 FACTION WAAAAAGHH! Part 2 Electric Boogaloo

I'll come out of retirement for this silliness I guess.

Help Luna represent OM. The concept of having to win with the DH in the finals to secure the BO5 is hilarious though.

Re: Limiting Heay Turrets

I think you might be the first person I've seen in years claiming that heavy turrets of all things are OP.

You can kill them from outside of their line of sight with tankbusta barrage you know? Tankbustas can also just walk up and 1v1 them.

that's.. the same for all jump troops? Literally yes, however ASM/stormboy kb immunity starts the moment they activate the ability and the flying through the air takes a good 1-2 seconds based on distance, so when you get on the gorund you only have maybe 2seconds of actual in-combat kb immunity.

Re: Does the purifier need to be an HQ production unit?

Well I actually agree with you to be honest on this one. I think they would serve much better with a different role entirely, as a dedicated anti-daemon/energy/AoE unit. Or, if there is no role redesign then yes just making them a capped-at-one upgrade for SS like sternguard.

Re: Why do GK exist?

It's OM, not GK. OM exist because the models for them were polished enough to be considered useable by the original lead designer of the mod Caeltos. So he added them in. It's really as simple as that. If there was a polished high functioning Tau/Necron mod then that would probably have been added i...

Re: GK Operatives - found the problem.

They'd be far too good against melee then, and the synergy with infiltration would lead to even easier wipes.

Clearly the dps just needs to go down period. Regen gained when breaking fallback plan is probably too high atm too.

Because they have the highest damage AV combined with the cheap ass trukk which when combined with tankbustas is hilariously good AV since the trukk is faster than all other vehicles. Both bustas and lootas w/ beamy has above average range too.
