Re: How it feels if you play vs Eldar as any other faction ? Do we want them to be reworked ?

ArtisticMink made pretty much exactly the same post in a different thread. To summarise my response: 1) Somebody is always going to have to be the fastest. For a hit-and-run race, Eldar have a lot of disadvantages that makes hit-and-run more difficult: most of their weapons require them to be facing...

Re: Immediate removal of Eldar as a PVP faction

If pulsars were normal lances then almost no one would play them instead of chaos because at first look they would seem to be the same. Pulsars are exaclty the opposite of what you say, they are INTERESTIGN because they are different, but they are very hard to balance. Right now.. eldar are not str...

Re: Immediate removal of Eldar as a PVP faction

That's part of the problem. Pulsars as currently implemented are the crutch that keeps Eldar viable, but the rest can't be made stronger without taking away that crutch. With pulsars being as they are, while also being a significant part of the armament of everything bigger than a Shadow, everything...

Re: Immediate removal of Eldar as a PVP faction

They have been nerfed, I think - damage got cut in half in exchange for reduction of the cooldown by a third (so 'alpha damage' is cut in half, overall DPM is reduced, and the micro burden is higher). It's a bold request and it most likely won't happen. Thing is, if i'm entirely honest - i would act...

Re: Immediate removal of Eldar as a PVP faction

I realise this is about PVP and the match I'm about to reference is PVE, but bear with me. Playing a custom 700pt Cruiser Clash mission against the heroic difficulty Eldar as Imperial Navy. Literally the moment I was spotted, my two leading cruisers lost half their hit points. My opening salvo was ...

Re: Eldar vs Eldar

I think it’s a little more complicated than that: From the Craftworld perspective, Corsairs follow the Path of the Outcast, same as Rangers. In practise, the Path of the Outcast means that they’ve abandoned the Paths and been exiled from the craftworld (such exile, however, is typically viewed more ...

Re: CWE - Think we will see them in our roster?

The impression I’ve always had is that there wasn’t a lot of technical distinction between “Craftworld” and “Corsair” ships. “Corsair” ships are typically built at the Craftworlds, and then appropriated by crews taking the Path of the Outcast. Essentially, becoming a Corsair is viewed by the Craftwo...

Re: Eldar balance focus

Yeah, the 'two moves' thing is the hardest thing to make work in realtime. I think that the holofield mechanic is intended to reflect this, by rewarding movement - thus reflecting being able to potentially avoid return fire entirely as well as the basic effect of the holofield. I think it possibly p...

Re: LET'S GO DEEPER INTO THE GOTHIC SECTOR!

Coolio - I haven't read much of the BL stuff, hence the acknowledgement that I might have missed something. Lack of female IG was something I was more sure of - it's certainly not something that's catered for in the models I've seen or the codices I've read through. Makes sense under the circumstanc...

Re: LET'S GO DEEPER INTO THE GOTHIC SECTOR!

When will we see some more Admiral pics and voice acting - in particular female ones for those that are relevant ( Eldar, Imperal Navy and of coruse Tau! Orks dont have them and Chaos is debatable if you are sticking to CSM only captains) I'd say Imperial navy is debatable too. The Imperial armed f...
