Re: Painboy

He's pretty hellish to deal with at the moment, it's quite a joke really. Other than sitting down on the floor and crying (which is usually the preferred strategy that I adopt, because I'm a pussy), is to get suppression/knockback. Thing is suppression vs WB is always very risky since stormboys with...

Re: Invisible abilities

The problem is that the cloud performs decently, or even weakly in 1v1 at the moment, therefore no nerf to it, which includes making it more visible, is warranted.

Re: Invisible abilities

The problem is that Lag doesn't play much 1v1; he's talking from a 3v3/2v2 perspective where admittedly the cloud performs much better. At the risk of sounding condescending I invite you, Lag, to play a few 1v1s and come back and report whether or not noxious cloud is giving you the same amount of t...

Well no, it would depend on the energy cost that comes with them, but regardless the daemon armour already buffs energy immensely and so yeah, it would be excessive.

Re: Chaos Space Marine Topic

Doesn't sound like a bad idea. However the armour got massive buffs in elite because now it provides extra energy+energy regen too, so I dunno if another buff is necessary or not.

Re: Idea for Commissar Global

I think one nice way to make Loyal to the End a bit more versatile and a bit more useful IMO, would be to make the aoe a bit larger and to make the death of any unit within that area buff the damage of any other units around it by 5% for 5seconds and then boost it's red cost to 200. It would be nice...

On another note I think it's simply ludicrous that orks get to generate red for free. No other race get's that, and they have such great red abilities.

Re: Eldar detection and Destructor

I was posting on the assumption that Spotters don't have detection; 3 detectors for IG on such a variety of units would be overkill imo. Therefore I've been considering Sentinel as a primary detector. I understand that the issue is that IG don't have an upgrade to get detection, so when I Pm'd toil...

Re: Eldar detection and Destructor

It's more that if we set the detection range to standard (i.e. 30), as opposed to Rangers' (i.e. 40), the sentinel being a single entity makes it more vulnerable to being killed off quickly. It's like, imagine IG vs Chaos Sorc. If you move the Sentinel up to detect, you might eat a TCSM and Lashavo...

Re: Eldar detection and Destructor

While I agree with Caeltos that the fact it's a single entity gives it great fight presence in the early game, and by extension pretty much would secure detection for the early game fights, I think the Sentinel would very much lose out on utility as a detector in the mid to late game. It has been n...

Seriously, Asmon, it's very funny to use a no-cast instant travel ability and see how one vanilla Heretics squad lose 80% of his HP. Or simply instant wipe the squad with Kinetic pulse + Destructor. But breaks (even more) the Chaos - Eldar matchup. What exactly do you mean by breaks even more? Chao...

Never talked about "leading" now you'll have to retreat or suffer a lot of bleed or wait for a not so short heal at base (you're very likely to not lose a single model to destructor, unless you got damaged previously) and he'll have free capping time on that side of the map. His commitmen...

Lootas do. Brightlance/lootas still should cost power without their snare because they do much higher dps than the snaring AV teams, it balances it out.
