Terminator Upkeep

Postby Paranoid Kamikaze » Mon 20 Apr, 2020 6:12 am

Was going through Codex and realized SM Terminators are all 30 upkeep per model while Chaos and GK Termies are all 20 per model. That's 30 more upkeep in total for SM. Is the Codex wrong or is this intentional?

Its intentional. I double checked in-game, and the upkeeps for each matched up, even the SM ones. They were talking about standardizing all the Terminators across the board (SM, OM, Chaos) in patch 2.92 preview, but changed their minds after some pushback.

Well, it's a bad change then. It noticeably ruins economy and makes it hard to purchase any other units after buying. It's the highest upkeep value in the entire game. Even over every races super units. This makes absolutely no sense.

CSM Terminators cost 50power to reinforce while SM Terminators cost 25power to reinforce. So much in this game that makes no sense.

They also cost 100 req less on a more req-dependant race that doesn't snowball as hard. :D :twisted: :twisted: 8-)

That's cause they're what SM's main end game is along with Preds.
