Re: The Issue with Eldar

What would FDs do in T3 that they can't do in T2? T3 is when all the vehicles you basically don't want FDs to fight (ie tanks) show up. And as Black Relic pointed out they are basically just a close range unit, they deal with anything due to melta damage. I mean if you want DRs in T3 I guess. It doe...

Why on Earth should the apo be able to counter CL/BC with a point + click ability?

Re: Apothecary things

Meh, I don't see how the jump pack makes apo any better of a melee fighter. I mean, I guess he can jump setups or something. But it doesn't address the main issue of the fact that most people prefer the apo to just not get shot at all, which is easier in range. Maybe we just nerf the bolter at this ...

Re: 3v3 Community Cup Review

I entirely agree with this overall synopsis. I hope this tournament illustrates that set strategies and familiarisation with maps and the 'flow' of team-play can easily trump conventional 'skill' in terms of micro, positioning and general unit awareness. The 3 best 1v1 players shoved into a team do...

I must have missed the games where the SM blob built whirlwinds but I'm trying to catch up. Suffice it to say that the tournament's results are being discussed pretty vigorously. Whirlwinds in general are due for a rework, but to what is the question. There is a concern of SM dominance in 3v3s so we...

Their fast attack animations MS, your chance to special is 5% x the difference in your MS. So if your MS is 74 and theirs is 70, it's 20% to proc a special from an attack. A moving target has -2 MS and every level gained grants the squad +1 MS.. The special chance is 5% + 1% x the difference in mel...

Their fast attack animations ^ Is what is really the problem. As people are noting, it's not entirely random there's a basic formula for it. If your MS is lower than the opponent's MS, you will never special them. If your MSs are equal, then each strike from both squads have a 5% to proc a special....
