Re: Terminator Upkeep

CSM Terminators cost 50power to reinforce while SM Terminators cost 25power to reinforce. So much in this game that makes no sense.

A better way to decide unfinished games?

Let's say Player A and B are playing. Player A drops. What about this idea?: Estimate the win% at the time of the drop, in this case you could estimate Player B was behind with 30% and Player A with 70%. Then randomise a number 1-100. If it's 1-30 then the decision goes to player B, if it's 31-100 t...

Re: Patch 2.9.3 Change log Preview

Having to buy expensive units solely to detect is a weakness in this game imo. I would prefer upgrades to certain units, such as the Sentinel and DA, to provide detection without having to spend 250/25 or 400/40 or whatever the cost is for Rangers or Catachans. It's too restrictive to have to spend ...

Re: Make OM great again.

- GM could be equally balanced in a situation where we removed 2for1 reinforce and a situation where we didn't - I believe this to be false. Let's assume 2for1 saves the IG player 5 req per minute. Firstly, the cost is free, so after 1 minute the IG player is +5 free req, 2 minutes +10 free req and...

Re: Make OM great again.

You might be right. My thinking was that they would be 500/0, therefore about 10% better than Tacs. That might mean Tac dps and MS 70, or Tac dps and 375hp, or something else. I thought SS got owned completely by Banshees in melee so 70MS would prevent this, but they would still lose convincingly du...

Re: Make OM great again.

But GM sarges were legitimately underpowered in retail so your whole argument doesn't even make sense. If one Mars bar costs £1, how much do three Mars bars cost? 2for1 effectively give IG free req over the course of the game. About 8req per 2 GM models reinforced since they would pay 32 for 2 mode...

I've tried more than most but when half the community believes that unit comparisons between factions are invalid, there is no hope.

Re: Make OM great again.

I would try and stick to lore whenever possible and SS being worse than Tacs makes me cringe a little. The starting unit can't be more than 500req if it is to be purchased immediately, so 500req is an upper limit to the T1 unit cost. SS deserve to be 500req imo since the lore states that they are su...

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.

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%.

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. ...
