Re: Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition

Have you dumbed down 40K? Not at all. We’ve made it easier for new people to enter and get to grips with the basics. Yep, they are dumbing it down. They are at liberty to do what they wish with their IP, but making a product accessible and streamlined doesn't seem like a good way to build up a base...

Re: 2.7 Proposal - AV Warrior Brood 'Melta bomb' Upgrade

I like the idea in theory, but it feels like one of those things that could be useless in practice, possibly for the reason Hunter stated.

If you guys made a test patch I'd give it a serious try. I would love to have a new unit to take out vehicles that doesn't require spam.

Hi I'm pretty new to trying to get the mod up and running. I notice in the top left the version says 2.5.0. Does this mean I am on the wrong version or have those numbers just not been updated. Also does matchmaking work on the elite mod? If the version is 2.5.0 you are playing the wrong version. I...

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...

Nice to see I'm not the only one who dislikes Ork T3 infantry.

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...

TF2 was an amazing game, then it went F2P and Valve put in their own servers. The F2P players all sucked at the game and never took it seriously.
