Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

That's the thing though, I didn't equate the two, and it was one of several skills mentioned. I compared the ability's effectiveness and field presence, particularly against the guard, when someone brought up that vials weren't all that effective I conceded that maybe it's different for higher skill...

Re: Eversor assasin kamikadze radius

Could be tied into a wargear upgrade (or the root of a new one) with an attached timer after death to make it dogeable. Basically the martyrdom perk.

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

your argument relies on some very odd theoretic gameplay. Piano is offering to test out your argument in practice, why dont you take that chance and show him that you are correct. Test out what? There was no detailed strategy I posed. And even if I had one, Piano is already biased towards a viewpoi...

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

Maromar, it's not "if" it happens always because that's how IG is designed, it's not just as planned, it's either do this or lose the game vials have 1 use and that is to prevent units from exiting chimera pdevs are a unit that traps your economy in t2 where you eventually lose because yo...

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

ok so here's how creeping barrage works IG buys a chimera, you buy a set up team for AV. You set up your set up team. Ig uses creeping barrage on your set up team, facing towards himself. Now you're left with the choice of A. press x, or B. let your setup team be knocked forwards into his army. If ...

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

press X then just stop brother Same thing against creeping barrage. Even then, those skills remain more dangerous on retreat than creeping barrage unless you preempt them or are playing a race that isn't as squishy as the guard. Just stop brother. barrage forces off your entire army, setup team is ...

What skills ? If you move fast enough you can run away from a noxioud cloud , or split. You can also see an incoming vial throw from a mile away :) But that setup team won't tear down the equipment in time to run in most cases. press X then just stop brother Same thing against creeping barrage.

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

But you said it yourself that it's hard to dodge anything when suppressed and that you shouldn't have to explain it to me so isn't it obvious that that is not what i meant?:) No. And again, a deployed setup team isn't dodging any of those skills, mate :).

Maybe instead of trying to be a smartass you actually think 5 seconds before typing something The way it was worded could have gone either way. The one being a smartass is you, I'm afraid.

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

That's where the difference is between people who backseat and actual players. In theory, to you at least, creeping barrage is easy to dodge. But in practice most players would probably agree that its not easy to dodge especially when youre in the middle of an engagement and you have set up teams. ...

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

creeping barrage is one of the best globals in the game and cannot be compared to vials or foot of gork But it can be. As a ranged hero, the LG doesn't have ready made options to provide knockback, and possesses only minimal melee counter-engage. Combine this with the above mentioned abilities effe...

pattern recognition and logic coupled with having 2 hands leads to being a top player, so why am i one and you're not you are a beginner, having a lot of hours doesn't mean anything if you do not improve you've compared vials to creeping barrages and now you've compared storm troopers to raveners, ...

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

raveners directly fight with guardians, tacs, csm and rarely with ig units, neither case is more survivable, ranged raveners do not do a lot of damage, they are the support unit to your damage dealers and one does have to be good at the game to be able to tell how a unit highly dependant on positio...

In addition to what is being discussed: 1. I would like to see ravener (squad) firing pattern changed to not do so much damage in a single, quick burst. Maybe increase the burst duration a little or adjust the health damage stat and play with cooldown/windup/reload etc. Something such that their da...

Re: Patch 2.9.5.1 Hotfix Released !

if you use it without thinking where your opponent goes sure it's easy to dodge i guess but otherwise it's one of the easiest globals to hit with and most of the time forces you to retreat comparing it to purification grenades and foot of gork is stupid because both of these abilities are overrated...

do not compare niche artillery units to insta win engagement anywhere on the map and steam-roll your opponent type of globals I don't see it.
