Re: Eldar late game in 3v3: faster vehicles

The game's design doesn't ultimately hinge on the lore. If it did, a single tac marine squad would beat a 100 pop maxed out IG army. Lore should inform the design of the races when possible (I don't want Ogryn snipers), but balance is what matters most - and adding a fast T3 vehicle to the eldar wou...

Re: Population Values.

A unit's pop cost is not strictly a product of their raw power/utility, the context of which faction they belong to and which tier they are available at also is important. Some races can get certain kinds of units for less resources or pop cost but other for higher cost... the overall internal balan...

Re: Eldritch got overnerfed

Eldritch is still an amazing nuke - hell, I would pay 200-300 red for an aoe ~15 sec vehicle snare and nothing else if I was eldar. Eldar players need to get over the fact that they cant make tanks disappear with the click of a button anymore - that was never fair and it's good that you can't do tha...

Never understood the melodramatic talk about democracy and censorship on a privately-run forum. This isn't a democratic platform, it's run by a group of individuals who have every right to control the content as they see fit.

Re: Telehammer vs IG

I strongly recommend the LG flak jacket. If you activate "Incoming" before the FC lands his first special, he is effectively impotent. After that, simply spread your infantry out and gun him down. As Phoenix mentioned, the grenade launcher speed boost will make the process even easier as y...

I'm sure reducing the damage the same way that AWD does would be fine. The ability is there to disable a target, not damage it.

Re: SM advice for DOW II returnee

Pdevs are a great req dump. I do not understand what you mean by this. A SM who avoids unnecessary bleed in T1 will often find himself with an excess of req compared to power in T2. pDevs are a great way to spend excess req without spending your limited power, because they are a fairly mindless ant...

Re: Differences in Req Gain?

Once your population exceeds 30, you begin paying upkeep for every population point over 30. You pay for upkeep starting with the units with the highest upkeep first IIRC. So if I have 40 population and my most upkeep-heavy models are two 5-pop sergeants, I will pay upkeep for those 2 guys. If you b...

I agree with Morgan, the GK had good soft AV to compensate for having no conventional hard AV. Now that they have a hard av with snare, the high amount of soft AV just puts them OTT.

Re: Is Warlock the only viable Eldar champ ?

Eldar are a very fragile race, with most of their units being glass cannons. Still, if you enjoy them go ahead and play them. Just play enough and you will learn - don't be afraid of losing most of your games at the start.

Re: Is Warlock the only viable Eldar champ ?

Like most offensive heroes he is the easiest of the 3 to use and has few or no bad matchups. In the early game you just can't go wrong with him. He's got a nice starting ability - it does huge damage to light infantry blobs and also takes very nice chunks of health out of heavy infantry as well. Bot...
