Re: 2.9.0 Beta

Boss, do you ever stop to think that you might be overreacting a little? My criticisms below. If something isn't mentioned it's probably because I don't have an opinion or I think the change is good. Eldar Why reduce WS to 435/35? It's an insignificant amount and seeing as WS see a lot of use in 1v1...

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

Why not give IG a useful melee counter in T2 instead of OP stuff in T1? Why not give Nids an OK T2 instead of OP stuff in T1? No consolation to play vs a weak T2 if you get rekt by an OP T1. Same for a weak T3; it doesn't matter if a faction has a weak T3 if they have an OP T1 and T2 since they'll u...

Re: 2.9 Patch: Upkeep and Pop Values.

Good discussion, but I disagree with a couple of arguments.

Re: 2.9 Patch: Upkeep and Pop Values.

I actually think it is perfectly fine for vehicles to have lower pop/upkeep for their cost than normal because vehicles are easier to wipe than infantry squads and you have to spend time repairing them, two flaws that are not compensated, I don't think, by the fact that they don't bleed via having ...

Re: 2.9 Patch: Upkeep and Pop Values.

1. Do you agree on upkeep and pop value being an alternative tool of balancing a unit? The various game length makes it impossible to do properly as lowered upkeep has little effect if the unit in on the map for only a few minutes and higher upkeep becomes very expensive if the game is 30 minutes l...

One major problem with each patch release is that 12 different players can hold 12 different opinions on what a units stats, cost, upkeep or pop value should be and this causes much annoyance in the community and many poor balance decisions.

It would not change much, that is true. Currently: 25.38dps melee 16.05dps ranged 22 range.

Was the suggestion of giving the Apo a default 2-handed bolter taken seriously? It would be more appropriate since he is more suited to ranged combat. He could be 20dps ranged piercing and 19dps melee instead of the current 16dps ranged and 25.4dps melee. The heavy bolter could be range 38 to keep i...

Renoding power

Not sure if this is a problem but in 3v3s when a player destroys a power node it becomes an APM contest between the aggressor clicking to decap the point and the defender trying to renode. If the player renodes and the node is destroyed almost immediately, they get a lot (all?) of the req back so th...

If it is the highest value first there might not be a problem. Let´s say that Shootas @270/0 with a total upkeep of 25.5 is a fair value. Termas @260/0 then deserve to have a similar value to Shootas, but they can´t be 2.55 per pop because that would either be 8x2.55=20.4 if they are 1 pop/model or ...
