Re: Tyranids Popularity

Nids just don't belong in this game from a lore perspective. Small armies of squads that gain veterancy and retreat rather than being wiped is not remotely niddy in nature. True to some extent, agree with it lorewise. in lore nids literally throw shit at a wall until it breaks, billions of casualti...

Re: Tyranids Popularity

I can only speak for myself being a Tyranid Fanboy in the tabletop game: I find the Tyranid playstyle I know and love from the tabletop sadly a bit lacking. In DOW2 you don't really have a swarm of weak units. So the playstyle for me wasn't that much different than Eldar or Space Marines which I pla...

Re: The Issue with Eldar

I'm all for a new T3 units for Eldar: Striking Scorpions that is. In all seriousness, I don't see Eldar being in dire need of balance changes especially after the Falcon and the Ranger nerf. What could work, in my opinion , which is rather based on what doesn't break my fluffy heart of lore and back...

Re: Current Ordo Malleaus

Scanning through the Codex (7th edition but still), I simply don't get the fear of the grey knights (OM) being to close to Space Marines. So what?

Re: Would you be interested in 'plot maps & events'? Let's talk about it!

I think that idea is super cool. When I started playing elite I got the idea that all the new units and balanace changes could really spice up the single player campaign(s) of the game, becuas ethey were quite strange gaming wise (mega hp-pools, anti-everything weaponry, broken abilities).

Re: Heavy armor for Warp Spiders (and generally fluff/lore discussion)

I'm sorry but no. Warp spiders do not have the same armor as space marines. Warp spiders armor is way more advanced, plates that are soft but harden on impact, but also offer less protection than your typical space marine armor. Unless you have some sources saying otherwise? In TT however they do i...

I just looked up if there is something about the falcon in the initial list posted by Atlas and it actually isn't. So I think it would make sense if he wait how the nerf of the falcon in 2.8. turns out and then dive into the discussion once again.

Yeah, WS/DR/FD/WG are all very niche choices which should be pretty obvious given how many different options the eldar have in the T2 and so each individually will never be used compared to the falcon. A better comparison is the falcon vs WL. In which case the falcon is gigantically superior in pre...

What are the downsides of being supressed in melee?

Hello fellow elitists. I always wondered what the downsides are when a unit is supressed but also stuck in melee. As I got it, the cooldown of a melee weapon is 0 so no multiplier can increase it. And your speed is not of importance if you are in melee anyways. So, what is left? Am I overlooking som...

On a different note though I do think encouraging small re-balancing of all the none-die-last heroes so that they are still balanced in spite of being cheaper to buy back would be a good call. It's just a little more 'fun' as random leader wiping is unnecessarily punishing but it still gives some r...
