Re: My thoughts about next patch changes

To keep on with the IG ideas, I agree that gm should not cost more from HQ since they are indeed weak before upgrades. I find the longer reinforce time a good idea (actually it is something that has been changed several times in vanilla iirc to balance them). Some additional propositions: - Increas...

Re: My thoughts about next patch changes

My 2cents about IG: Free Stuff = OP Stuff. Agree? GM 2for1 reinforce is Free Stuff because the Sergeant costs 85/0 when he comes with 2 more GM worth 35/0 each. So effectively the Sergeant model is 15/0 and the 2for1 is 0/0! Combined with GM 20hp/s repair makes the GM+Chimera combo too strong and im...

Re: Win rates of each race categorized by game length (League only)

What are the overall win rates per faction and what is the sample size? That would be important to know.

The stats as laid out don't tell us much because, for example, SM could have had the majority of their games exceed 20 minutes which would probably make their win rate >50%.

Re: Standardise Red?

Standardising red might not be a perfect idea, but at least it is an approach backed by some reason. How is red decided now?

Standardise Red?

It makes sense to me that the red gained from killing units is proportional to the strength of the unit killed. Relic probably intended this to be the case since many of the red values are higher for stronger units than for weaker units. It's not even an important issue unless red is related to XP. ...

Re: Eldar Ideas

Units are only OP/UP in relation to other units.

If they weren't, then Wraithlords are always OK because "weak Eldar T3" or some other bad reason.

Is WL Shuriken upgrade really only 0.5 fotm? Every other Walker weapon is 1.0 fotm btw.

My suggestions would be : - Remove Ol' Unreliable from Catachans. Rework them as only an anti melee unit. - Lower the cost of Catachans. - Increase Spotters cost, should be at least 40 power for that they can do. - Or, just make Mortar and Smoke Shells share the same cooldown, so they won't perform...

Die-last is a bullshit mechanic and only exists because of Flesh Hook apparently.

It's not exactly 1:1 cost symmetry as some exceptions can be made for some units. This is, imo, the easiest method to obtain reasonable unit costs and avoid units being OP or UP.
