Re: OM Feedback

Speaking from the perspective of someone who faces them I think this patch is a big improvement. IST abuse is not viable build anymore, and making the SS melee special dependent on an upgrade makes them less likely to completely steam roll your melee units in the first couple engagements.

Re: Straight out - Nobs are OP

I think I posted about this ages ago, but why do nobs get invincibility and suppression immunity in 1 ability? I think invincibility is a stupid thing to have in a game like this, but I can accept it as long as I can still crowd control the invincible unit... just as I am ok with a unit gaining comp...

Re: Heavy Armor Factions are OP?

On issue of Tac/ASM costs - Tacs costed 500 req and ASMs costed 500/50 as far back as vanilla Dow2. This price tag was probably justified back before TCSM and Plasma GM (and in Elite mod's case, Dark Reapers) existed. Now that many races can field cost-effective anti-HI weaponry on their infantry, t...

Remove the experience bonus from reviving fallen allies?

From my experience it is fairly common for a diligent ally to reach level 4-5 after just a few engagements because he repeatedly revives a fallen ally. I'm not exactly sure how experienced is divided for kills, but it seems like the teammate who revives his ally repeatedly can out-level the enemy he...

Re: Straight out - Nobs are OP

Nice to see I'm not the only one who dislikes Ork T3 infantry. I would be happy with just the nob squad cap because I think they are the worst offenders by a long stretch, but I can see how kommandos also are prone to abuse - mainly because a kommando nob counts as ~3 tankbustas, on top of the squad...

Re: Straight out - Nobs are OP

1 Nob squad isn't game-breaking (and as Ace pointed out the health buff was changed). However it is common in 3v3 for orks to get 2-3 of them. In fact, they almost become a reward for orks who lose their entire army and free up that pop space and income. Can't do anything about it though, because th...

DOW1 was a classic base-building, macro-heavy RTS I never really understood people saying this. Classic base building ? sure, there is base building, but you don't have to build 10 barracks or so, to keep producing tons of marines. The base building is really light in DOW. And macro heavy ? serious...

Re: Discussing about a possible random testing stream.

The problem with replacing the Gabriel voice lines with Diomedes is that the Brother Captain already uses them - one possible way to deal with this would be to remove the GK from the game. Just a suggestion.

Re: The best money (40€) spent in my life

This guy has made 2 posts and they are both low quality shilling posts.

Also pre-ordering is cancer and it is a way for customers to encourage bad behaviour in game developers, please don't do it. It is actually worse than DLC in that regard.
