Re: General 2.8 Update and Roadmap

Indeed.

Myrdal does the coding. A lead designer simply applies their vision to the overall state of the game and would then be moderated by an advisory council who in turn are beholden to the entire populace of Elite Mod players.

Re: "Rebalancing IG Bionic Eye"

Executed units cannot retreat. Unit's executed with bionic eye can still be knocked back, thus they can still be insta wiped if this ability is not used correctly. It has a much higher degree of difficulty to use than other "mega buffs" and costs you a model. As an aside, all executes offe...

Re: General 2.8 Update and Roadmap

I will be declining any nomination putting me into the position of lead designer. I would have loved to have taken that role on a while back and I feel qualified and objective enough for this role, but my life is too busy for that commitment. As I laid out last week to a large group of reasonable vo...

Re: Help for FC vs CL

It's also one of the best matchups to purchase a powersword in as your FC will be completely indominable save for from a havok. 20 power goes a super long way in this one.

Re: Why do Pdevs missiles have tracking?

Incorrect. It shoots directly at the spot where the target is at the moment of the plasma ball being released from the chamber. An arc was added so that it doesn't hit terrain as often. The only things that cause the plasma ball to hit unexpected places are: 1) user targeting (attack ground command)...

Re: 2.7 Bugs & Issues Thread

I think I found a bug with the lord commissar aura of discipline. I was using it while standing right next to my wounded ogryns and they weren't receiving heal pulses from it. There were no other infantry around so they should have been healing very rapidly. I forgot to save the replay but I know ex...

2 things... First, I don't think your method is good/great in any sense for balancing a RTS game because it appears to lean heavily into a false sense of "apples to apples". Maybe I'm reading it wrong? Regardless though, you simply cannot do this when there are a multitude of variables you...

It gives them a different niche than other setup teams, and their damage output really reflects that whereby the...

Re: Loota Infiltrate Proposal

As much as I don't want you guys messing with the lootas or orks in general, I agree that the infiltration is quite strong in T1. I think we should make it cost 25 red in T1 and then let it be free in T2 and beyond as a compromise. 25 red means you would definitely need to be thoughtful about using ...

Re: when to buy stikkbommaz

Stikkbommas in their current iteration are top tier disruption units. Their melee special attack is fantastic for bodyguarding your back line units, and their stun bombs work on all types of units, as well as having a shorter cooldown and lower cost now. Basically, play them as a stun first unit. Us...

Buy the upgrade as soon as you are getting into combat. If the battle is close, cancel it and repurchase it. I...

Bang bang hammer is returning to its original form. It has not received any buff at all.

I'm honestly willing to try and keep it at 20 power as a weaker item to get a better timing window for it, but I leave this to the masses.

Re: How have Big Shootas not been touched?

Why build lootas you say? Much higher ranged damage output for only 10 more power. 15 less power if you take into account the nob leader. Only need to keep 1 model for damage. 2 is practical for survival though. Transition into hard AV Lootas still do damage while they are supressing something. Shoo...
