Well, our conjecture on this was that most of these david accounts were used solely to zog games. Namely, some of the games of Rostam's archnemesis Cornholio! Dundundunnnnnnnnn!


If Cornholio is his archnemesis, why zog his games? :shock:

You need a neurothrope+melee fex to kill terminators.

Re: Ladder issue

Play more games, I cannot remember if it is +/- 150 or 200, but there's a level like that at which point you get took off the ladder as it deems your rating too unreliable.

Re: Fire dragons

They're a noob unit for a-moving. Quite good with heart of darkness and guide but... As Nurland said eldar don't need them. They leave you subject to a lot of potential bleed and are very vulnerable to melee and vs a good player you will never kill a transport with them. The only time they are optim...

Re: Limiting nob squad purchase to one squad

Frenzy is the main reason why they are OP in Team games. I agree that the main problem of Nobz is Frenzy, but I'd say it can also be for 1v1's as well. It's a relatively cheap upgrade (for what it provides) that makes an already tanky low-unit count squad even tankier, and boosts their damage, and ...

Hi, As not all the info about how stuff works currently in the mod can be found in the Codex, I have a couple questions: 1.

Re: Superheavy Infantry armor for Carnifex and Swarmlord?

Not having to commit to av in 1v1 is certainly a buff for someone fighting such units, but then again not a single mention of how much hp they'd get or would have to have to equal vehicle armour. What if a carnifex is 5000hp unit at least and swarmlord is circa 6000hp superunit? Also, isn't base-he...

Re: Elite League Season 2 with huge Prize money

Because he'll just drop out and QQ after 3 losses in a row like he did before?

He has plenty of opportunities to fight good players anyway, but he dodges because he knows he will lose as he is not remotely top tier.

Re: Why is SM so strong in 3v3? - Analysis

I don't even think 1v1 balance is relevant to discussing the WW. Nobody gets it in 1v1 so who cares how it functions there. It is bought frequently in 3v3 where it really overperforms. It must be nerfed. Question is how.

Pretty much what Riku said, Dcans and FP are pretty nice already. Eldar is a glass cannon faction for the most part, and their t3 reflects this.
