Re: Post- 11/17 2.9 Patch Making Stream Notes and Points

Just chiming in to say i still dont really understand how upkeep is calculated in this crazy game :) In my testing (playing private games on high res, buying units and jotting down my req income as they each hit the field) it seemed like upkeep was applied per model, for every model you purchased af...

At this rate we should auction off the position of balance lead to the highest bidder to make money to revive the game. https://media.giphy.com/media/FmijXcVr53g2I/giphy.gif Crew, you might be on to something though I have absolutely no clue why the game would do it in such a way.

Re: 2.9.0 Update and Roadmap

I'm still of the opinion that having Kinetic Pulse deal damage breaks several matchups quite significantly - especially against high model units like tics, termas, etc. Kinetic Pulse should be a control or setup ability, but it shouldnt be a damage dealer - it's way too low risk for having that kind...

Re: PPL say - get a topic. About meta-tyranid these days

Ive always thought that hormas put out wayyyy too much pressure in T1 for their cost. They have high speed and damage and they drop models suprisingly unfrequently.

Re: 2.9 Patch: Upkeep and Pop Values.

Good discussion, but I disagree with a couple of arguments. Population/Purchase Cost I don't think its a good idea nor feasible to rebalance population values based on a unit's initial requisition cost. I think that upkeep should be standardized to be X rate per population, and population values cou...

Re: Please explain to me how IG T1 does not suck

I have very strong feelings about this :) IG T1 lives and dies by Sentinel usage. That unit is the key to dominating the map with IG. No other race has a T1 vehicle that can decap, and the sentinel allows you to put out a significant amount of early game pressure. playing against well-microed sentin...

Re: Post- 11/17 2.9 Patch Making Stream Notes and Points

because upkeep is calculated based on upkeep/model, RATHER THAN Upkeep/Population, every other unit in the nid roster has higher upkeep than gants/gaunts. I just did some custom games to verify how the upkeep calculations actually work :P Looking at how this plays out - you start off with 264 base ...

Can we also consider reviewing current population values and making sure they are standardized along with upkeep? If not with this round of changes, then the next one? Some inconsistencies to call out: Setup teams - should be standardized @ 12 pop, 30.6 upkeep (looking at you, HWT and Shurican) Rang...

OM is pretty much shit against anything in this patch.

They have a few good/OP units like IST and purifiers, but ops and purgs are just fucking awful right now, which means they really dont have many options in t1.

General thoughts on upkeep changes: This is one of the least intuitive, visible, and understood mechanics in the game.

Re: How to beat Eldar as Chaos (early game)

I think the key to winning the early game against eldar is knowing how to fully utilize your heretics. Banshees are the biggest threat that you'll have to deal with in T1, and none of your units can go toe-to-toe with them in melee. Even with AC, tics are not going to win a brawl against banshees, t...

Re: The Issue with Eldar

What could work, in my opinion , which is rather based on what doesn't break my fluffy heart of lore and backround of the Eldar, is to switch Dark Reaper into T3 and give them two fire modes. One with anti-heavy infantry and anti SHI firepower similiar to what they have now and the other being a mi...

It sounds like you want SC to be more like feeder tendrils, which is silly. LA is a loner assasin hero so he can get high damage and self heal for a high cost. Apo is a aupport hero, not a nuker. He's not the one dealing most of your damage, nor should he have a ton of self heal - SC already allows ...
