Re: Tau armor and outflanking

My thought was why don't they make the prow deflector not need an upgrade for sheilds, but then link it to movement speed like holofields? Functionally similar to disruption pods increasing your junk save from 40k TT. Mechanically a port from eldar. Functionally make the tau player choose between cl...

Re: Thoughts on Tau

Except they are also shooting subpar amounts of torps as well - 3 on light cruiser and 5 on cruiser (where 4/6 is normal) They are also taking longer to begin to track than SM (3km vs 500m) and have no alternate torp type. I'm not saying they are terrible, but as tau torps are supposed to be scary, ...

Re: Thoughts on Tau

Agree with op on most points (as he's a go to coop buddy and we've discussed these points quite a bit). I feel like the mantas are only OP with the 2nd hp upgrade. Although my opinion of them is mitigated once finding out how wrong the tooltip for them was. Totally agree with favors being planets. I...

Re: Gravitic hooks

Wardens don't feel good enough and cheap enough to feel like something other than a tax atm.

Please provide a "warden-less" varients, or make wardens desirable.

As it stands at no point do I currently wish I had a trio of wardens instead of another emissary or warsphere.

Re: Roadmap update, Ranked Matches, Leagues, Leaderboard and more!

I see a lot of people demanding cruiser clash as the only mission. I think I need to disagree a bit here. I submit for consideration that it can be unfair to have a non-objective based mission, where there is nothing to force the engagement. It will heavily favor sniper/kite builds. Objective based ...

Re: Cobra's...

Well, part of the problem is how torps didn't really translate from the TT nearly as powerfully. If it were a direct translation, you'd a) have no cone spread b) do 100 damage/torp c) have something like 1/3 to 1/2 the current cooldown The trade off for all this was it no longer requires the reload ...

Re: Patch Notes 09/06/16

So... do assault boats do perm or temp crits? (Or am I blind and didn't see where that was listed)

Re: Codex Sages : Gameplay questions

the Imperial Cruiser's HAD strength 1 dorsal lance turrets. In more than one BFG book at that :) What class of ship. Cite me one. The post was more directed at shaftoe than you (as an FYI), but none of the cruisers implemented in bfg:a had any dorsal Lance's. I'm unaware of the top of my head of an...

Re: Codex Sages : Gameplay questions

Why lances on imperial ships suck badly enough, so Lunar, Gothic and Firestorm are half or totally useless ships, when they supposed to be heavy (but slow) hitters? The question should be "Why Imperial cruisers don't have their one lance turret like Overlord or Mars". (So a ghotic would h...

Re: Cruiser Shadow

My issue with the shadow (aside from starcannons needing a buff/rework imo) is the light torpedo armament. Why, when eldar torps are a listed "advantage" for the race, is the shadow the only cruiser with a 4 spread instead of 6? It offsets the eldar torp advantage. Also, might point out th...
