Ork Turret

Postby Grosvenor » Sun 10 May, 2020 1:49 pm

Hi,
I'm just a noob player, but have watched tons of Ork games on Indrid Casts and I've never see orks using the turret.

If the turret has been designed to be used as part of the Mek Boys skills, why isn't it. SM and IG have useful turrets that suppress, but the ork turret doesn't. Is this a disadvantage?

Could someone please explain the reasoning behind this.

Thank You

Mekboy is a teleporting hero, so he can place turrets more easily that the slow TM and PC. And orkz already exert huge pressure on enemy power farms. Therefore it would be extremely OP if Mek had access to a suppression turret.

From there, devs have tried to create another kind of turret for Mek. Which sucks real good atm, so nobody builds it.

But it's a small issue, it has very low priority so I don't expect anyone to come up with a new idea any time soon. And frankly, I think nobody cares, since Mek doesn't need a turret to be competitive.

The mek turret does suppression in retail, doesn't it ? I never heard once that it was OP there.
But yes, I do agree that the mek doesn't need a turret, at all. It can be just removed tbh.

Thanks very much for the explanation, and comments from other posters.

One thing I'd like to see is an Ork only contest to see who's the biggest boss!!!

Few days ago Indrid cast a game where Noisy build 2 ork turrets at bottom VP in the late game, very useful.

Can ork turret have a 360° angle of attack?

Mostly because people can't work around what they find "OP". Removing the suppression is just an easy way
