Re: Tyranid: How to team game?

Dealing with BB and LR plus full support is a tall order for all races except maybe Eldar with a nuke.

As Nids you can always support your team by focussing on the support rather than the vehicles themselves. Ripper spam to deal with set up teams is always helpful.

Cosmetic suggestion

I don't know if it's possible but I think it would be great if the carapace of the Capillary Towers and Tyrannoformation could match the color scheme of the Tyranid player. Would help distinguish your towers from those of other players as well.

Re: Tips on dealing with Terminators as Tyranids?

Don't forget Toxin Sacs to pretty much immobilize Termies, then hit them with Paroxysm. HT/TG/Carni charge knocks back Termies as well. It's all about disrupting and controlling them while you pile on damage. It's usually best to force off the rest of the enemy forces before targetting the Termies, ...

Re: the great Cornholio issue

Frankly I find the people who so openly call out another player on their behaviour more toxic for the community than the 'sour apple' itself. If you have an issue with someone either resolve it privately or, as has been suggested, avoid that person online.

Re: Warlock Destructor

Buy an aspiring champion for your tics, keep your hormogaunts/termagaunts in synapse range. Is that no counterplay? If you are up against a warlock you can anticipate the destructor and act accordingly. It only does high damage to your high model squads if they are bobbed up in one place for some r...

Also: whaaat? why would the destructor be too good? I seriously see no point in changing it.

Warlock does his destructor once and his damage is less tha...

Warlock Destructor

I'm not an Eldar main so feel free to call me out on this one but what do people think of the Warlock and in particular Destructor. Against infantry squads it seems to do almost as much damage as a fully charged Doombolts, but unlike the Sorcerer the Warlock is also a potent melee threat out the gat...

Re: Should Thorax Swarm Warriors be allowed to use a Barbed Strangler?

Warrior Brood is supposed to get wrecked by power melee squads. Usually you just use the Warrior leap knockback on the power melee squad, kite away with Warriors while staying in synapse range and then rape them with Genestealers... I feel that generally the damage you take going in and out is too ...

Re: Should Thorax Swarm Warriors be allowed to use a Barbed Strangler?

I think it's fine for BS Warriors to keep the snare and the BS, it's 50 power and the BS doesn't scale well anyway. I do feel that the debuff ability should be part of the AG upgrade, and should reduce enemy damage output instead of increasing damage taken. That would give melee Warriors a bit more ...

Re: Kasrkin rework or something

I'm not an IG expert, but frankly I think you would have to buff Kasrkin to a ridiculous level to make them a preferable choice over a Russ in almost any situation. Tanks have been very strong in Elite mod since their speed buff and they obviously synergize extremely well with Guardsmen and IG globa...

T2 without number is tricky. In its current form it can be a little bit too strong. It should not behave like an old drop pod, granting a free engagement win. Maybe only spawn gaunts in your HQ and providing free reinforcements for a set amount of time near the said HQ? Yeah I think it should be a ...

Re: 2.7 Preview Changelog ONLY

My only concern is that while ranged Terminators were definitely in need of a buff this change also affects Assault Terminators which I believe are just fine at the moment. They are also obviously pretty hard to counter in melee.

The reward to a non-zoan user for having higher skill than his foe and thus very seldom getting into a situation to kill a zoan when they are not IG is far far lower than the reward for a zoan user having somewhat 'meh' skill and thereby never allowing anyone of any skill to get behind his zoan and...
