Apo already has a default bolter, it's his pistol :D

Seriously, it already does decent damage out of the gate. Buff plasma pistol, please? 8-)

Not sure how it is in tabletop, but being expected to bring lots of plasma, not flamers vs tyranids seems wrong

Re: Raptor's Power Fist and Melta Gun

Don't have much of a horse here, but if it was deemed OP a suggestion would be to have the melta gun and fist as an upgrade, with bolt pistol and sword as the default.

Re: Is it me or SM seem nuts at the moment?

It's just a meta change brought from the 3v3 tournament. We haven't buffed or nerfed tacs in 2.8 so it was there before and no one really used it. I think its natural counters like suppression teams have been soft nerfed through the suppression in cover modifier, making it more viable. Things like ...

Re: Apothecary things

I might give the SC another chance, my reasoning for never getting it is that whereas rites scale, SC does not.

Re: how to beat IG as Space Marines

Chimeras are a giant hassle to deal with as SM. If you don't 1 shot or heavily damage them Guardsmen will just use their super repair to keep them up. Study your buffs on AV to get the most damage possible. Melta bombs for example do 150 * 1.5 for rear * 1.25 with FTE * 1.25 with Banner = 351. You ...

Re: drop pods

100 req discount is indeed nice, but is it really that much more powerful than other call ins to warrant a nerf?

Re: Banshees Melee Skill too high?

I think chain knock backs are an inherent problem of the game and can't be easily fixed, it doesn't always happen but when it does it does make you rage. It just happens more often with banshees due to the speed and area of their special - one little twirl and that 1 ton space marine goes flying. If...

Re: Current Ordo Malleaus

Since they're Ordo Malleus and not Grey Knights maybe they can um...'requisition' a leman russ over a predator?

OM will always get hate even if they're the most balanced faction in the game. I feel like they're 'almost' there, even though they're quite fiddly in terms of race design as a whole.

"Fun" ideas to bend the rules: No more heroes: no heroes may be used. Players must suicide their heroes into the enemy Base at the start of the game with no resurrect. Quickfire round: VP''s are restricted to 400. Loser concedes at the 100 mark. If people rack honor for this, use the game'...

Melee vs Ranged Strikes

This post comes with the caveat that I know that the patch hasn't been around for a long time, nor am I a GK/OM expert yet. Melee strikes seem much more survivable, versatile and better overall than their ranged counterparts. They allow you to engage dedicated melee units, have a useful melee charge...

Re: Steam Reviews are less than stellar

Agreed, in the end labels don't really matter in determining whether or not a game is objectively good or not, if such a thing exists. In theory, it's perfectly possible to take what's best of MOBA's, Starcraft, Dow I and II as well as the lore into a great game. The problem is that in a lot of case...
