Miiiiiiiiiines

Postby lomors » Wed 07 Feb, 2018 12:35 am

I just went to codex to see for how long do commie mines stun vehicles. And came back stunned. 30 secs? :O I mean. Maybe there's some secret balancing reason for that..? 30 secs is enough to kill most vehicles with other snare (since it stacks) more than 5 times. I understand techmarine mines too since he places only one of them thefore smaller chance of walking into it.

I'm just curious what's the reasoning behind it.

Calls in a Valkyrie that air drops self burrowing mines that will deal 20 explosive damage and suppress affected units, and decrease vehicle speed by 50% for 30 seconds in a radius 7. Cooldown 120 seconds.

It's only when in radius and it's a slow not a stun.

Is it a T1 or a T2 global?

Codex is saying T1. But that does seem rather strong. For wiping purposes kinda like dark flames, especially since you won't often have a detector vs ig since they can't infiltrate in T1 bar the IQ with her interrogator's.

If it was exclusively t2 I'd see a reason for it. To be honest I don't really think the mine's snaring are particularly problematic.Though after-all the LC is one of the most versatile heroes. I suppose a reduction on the snare time wouldn't be outrageous.

They are fine. It also takes some time before they activate. They need to "burrow" first.

I don't think that's true if you make them blow up prematurely with AoE such as sentinel missles or catachan ol reliable.

True. They need some time to be activated by stepping on them but you can still blow them up with Manticores and stuff.
