Re: Flesh Hook and Independent Character (Problems)

We could make the ability not be able to target squad leaders.

If that is done though some nerfs done to the ability should be rolled back.

Re: (Suggestion) Tzeentch CSM Champion alteration

True. But it is possible to make the MoT upgrade lower the cost of AC actually. I have done something similar before. It wont effect the AC tho if the mark is not purchased. So its kinda a gamble and player NEED to understand that if they want MoT and AC that the HAVE to get the Mark first to save o...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

SS used to be a decent range and melee combatant with better melee but worse range. It was ok but not great. I would like psy bolts change the range weapons of the units to kraken_pvp damage and then allow them to have their old psycannnon weapon upgrade back so OM can get some range sup again. But ...

Re: Flesh Hook and Independent Character (Problems)

Thats fair. It was just an option. I dont think the flesh hook thing needs to change because LA imo is kinda lack luster for the two heroes (as strange as that sounds i just like RA more). Just throwing things at people.

Re: Flesh Hook and Independent Character (Problems)

Yeah... So a flesh hook to a leader would do fuck all. That doesn't sound exactly like a great idea either. LG already gets repurchased retinue members at a discount so I would imagine that making squad leaders rebuy cost reductions should be possible. The problem that causes is that is is a nerf t...

Re: GK strike squads current state.

I still think SS should just be a ranged unit with some melee capabilities tbh. And Nemesis focus just allows some melee versatility. That way the unit doesn't scale as bad. But nemesis focus be a anti-melee option in t1 than doesn't restrict their scaling into a range sup unit in t2. But complement...

Idk I feel Torpid touch on something tbh. Yes it seems complicated but i feel it is necessary to answer what we want MoT to do. Because MoT CSM is underwhelming unless you get the AC.

I do not want MoT AC to have any melee weapon at all that changes their melee dps. Because their melee capabilities is not is what is in question here. It is fine. They are a range squad purely and can still be used in melee if necessary. It would make the units imo too versatile. If peoples issue i...

That would actually buff the FC. The Hammer tracking special is bs in the tracking does damage. Which it shouldn't. Units within and the 6.5 or 7 radius AOE should take damage and be knockedback imo.

Re: Why are Ogryns SHI?

They are your dreadnought with SHI armor. You should not have them start the engagement imo. I think having them follow up after the GMs are committed is the best use of Ogryns. That way enemy has to focus fire them as they are taking large amount of piercing or plasma damage to the face.

Sadly no. You would be changing the Data.sga breaking compatibility with other players so you wopuild no be able to play online.

You used to be able the change the main menu music when Elite's files were not all allocated into a single file (the SGA). But not anymore it seems.
