No matter how many times I hear it, the lack of Dobson voice acting (especially for Gabriel) just kills me inside.

Re: Tyranid AV and other issues

1 - I would say the biggest difference is the burst potential. Lootas with the beamy deff gun have the highest base AV damage per shot in the game (and absolutely amazing infiltration for catching your opponent off guard), and instead of being a rapid fire weapon like venom cannons it does that all ...

Re: Tyranid AV and other issues

I agree with the complaints about the Zoanthrope FWB changes. Whatever the intentions behind the change were, the end result has been an even greater incentive to resort to Zoanthrope spamming. This is not due to a lack of creativity on Tyranid players' part necessarily - it is just that this game g...

I'm not super up-to-date on that section of the 40K lore. It looks like a flaming sword, does mean it is for sure the sword and not just another flaming sword?

EDIT - Cypher is carrying the sword.

Re: Looks like it is happening... [MAJOR 40k SPOILERS - White Dwarf March 2017]

I was wondering how long it would take them to bring about the End Times in 40K. Aside from Girlyman, I believe Russ, Johnson, Khan, Corax, and Vulkan are still around somewhere. Curious to see if they show up as well. It would be nice to have a chance to use my Rogue Trader era leman russ model not...

Re: A small improvement suggestion for next patch

From my limited experience with the WB I definitely agree with Tex's proposal. I buy the BBH with the intention of charging up that buff and trying to pick off as many models as possible with that whopping 150 dmg per hit. Having 2 specials not only makes the RNG-based special attack system even mor...

How random is the random function when selecting race?

After playing mostly 3v3 and some on-and-off 1v1 as IG, I've decided to start doing some 1v1 as random to improve my micro and to improve my short-term decision making (instead of falling back on a few memorized builds, I'd rather learn to build on the fly).

Re: Lore Issue-About Scouts

The weapon damage is just a game variable to help the scouts do a certain amount of damage per firing cycle. Adding in accuracy would just make the process more RNG dependent.

Re: Sternguard and vanguard level fix??

I don't see why SM players considering the stern/van upgrades should be discouraged because their tacs have gained at least 1 level, good job finding this fix. However, if sterns/vans were buffed to compensate for the reversion to level 1, maybe some minor nerfs would be in order if this fix ends up...

Re: Farseer's weapon Suggestion

I agree with the other posters - the farseer is a support hero, so if you can get a heavy_melee weapon for her you should be grateful. If you get the armour that gives her fortune, you can also get a decent HP and HP regen buff, so she can function as a pseudo-offensive commander if need be (while s...

The 20hp/sec repair on GM and HWT and the 15 hp/sec bunker support is not a balance issue.
