Re: Nurgle/carrier fleet. How do I beat this as SM????

So I was finally going to just go in and take the fight to the chaos when i noticed his fleet was nurgle/carrier fleet. I still tried going in and brawling but still lost due to nurgles effect and trying to board and my thunderhawks always getting shot down. So do I just warp out and concede or is ...

Re: Do space marines suck?

The amount of "upgrades" ships are essentially required to take is huuuuge. So you've bought a ship with torps and thunderhawks? Great! Lets unlock boarding torps, bomby thunderhawks and faster bay reloads. Oh, that is 3 upgrade slots gone, and you still only have 100 shield, 600 hp. I do...

Re: Space Marines Announcement & Screenshots!

/cries 21st of June? That's the week I'll be abroad for work... and shortly afterwards, I'll go on some holidays. Oh well.. Hurry up the Tau then :p Skeptical of the whole chapter-approach: a fleet with an Imperial fist ship, 2 space wolf ships, one ultramarine and a blood angel ship would be strang...

Re: The problem with removing ranged pulsars, for buffing starcannons

Best thing to do maybe is improve the firing arch to 180? But if you are flying past ships you are only doing 50% of your original damage? Easy: take the shadow cruiser, it has 8 starcannons I think. 4 are given a 180° arc, front-left, 4 front-right. Concentrated frontal power, 50% broadside power....

Re: The problem with removing ranged pulsars, for buffing starcannons

I've mentioned elsewhere but there is another issue with the voidstalker if pulsar ranges get nerfed: the order of applied damage could make the pulsars better. Right now, pulsars drop sheilds, maybe overflow into armor, and then starcannons rounds start hitting 50-95 armor. If the starcannons impa...

Re: Will Space Marines be a ramming focused faction?

An important tidbit in comparing the strike cruiser to an imperial cruiser: the /drumrolls .. Point cost . The lunar & gothic were 180 points; the dictator with launch bays .. 220 points. The dauntless was 110 points, regardless of version. the strike cruiser was.. 145 points. Take a dauntless,...

Re: The problem with removing ranged pulsars, for buffing starcannons

you are comparing a 132 points Cruiser with a 171 points Battle cruiser, it is obvious Eclipse is better, he costs 40 more points. You don t chose between shadow and Eclipse you should have to chose between starcannon Shadow and Eldar non existing pulsar cruiser or between Eclipse Pulsar and non ex...

The problem with removing ranged pulsars, for buffing starcannons

So, afaik, the dev-plan is still to -remove the +3k range upgrade from pulsars, -replace with a starcannon buff. Problem-time: the devs have stated that they want to give the players the option between two playstyles; pulsars or starcannons. In theory, a buff upgrade for starcannons should be good f...

Re: Space marines ships

honestly increase it's shields and hull points a little and the strike cruiser's fine as is. I disagree, given that it has half the broadside of an IN cruiser or battlecruiser. As a regular CA, the bombardment cannon, launch bay and speed balance that out, but it just doesn't have the firepower to ...
