Some Eldar Thoughts

I want to give a first set of impressions and detailed thoughts on Eldar. I've separated it out from the main impressions thread because i'm planning somthing similar to my Ork thread where i cover a lot of stuff in detail. As a result i expect this to run rather long. NOTE: DPS sheet updates are ne...

Re: Battlefleet Gothic - Numbers to be changed.

The big factional differences were in other areas, like frontal armor, torpedos, speed, that sort of thing. This. I covered this elsewhere but when someone wasn't using fighter cheese, (IMO an oversight on the devs part), torpedoes were fairly dangerous shotguns on TT, and that prow armour complete...

Re: Battlefleet Gothic - Numbers to be changed.

I haven't had chance to fully cross check every race atm due to still working up the eldar to the top for my DPS sheets, (it's taking time, Eldar are very unfun to play atm for me), but ork bombers got 3 attacks each and insane crit chances before the last patch, not sure about now. As for lance pow...

Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

Okay fair enough. That's all table-top though, which this game is obviously not. Well no and that wasn't my point. My point was to explain what the IN advantages where and why outside of a couple of TT's own more severe balancing issues they worked so much better than here. It provides an idea of w...

Re: Repulsive Grand Cruiser

the main gun is a shit tonne of fun though lets be fair. Wasn't arguing that. Just pointing out it's base armament sucked, in fact it had only marginally more firepower than several other BB's conventionally. I'm on and off working on a TT semi-re-write and i've seriously considered stripping the P...

Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

If I'm understanding you correctly, however, you're saying the torpedoes effectiveness and their area-denial effects make it harder to kite Imperials in TT, because you actually had to maneuver around them. You couldn't circle strafe at range as easily because a good Imp player would lay a spread o...

Re: Repulsive Grand Cruiser

Bluntly, though it was expensive as shit, the Planet Killer really wasn't that good.


It paid far too much for the main gun to be blunt.

Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

Maybe you meant to phrase that differently, but that basically reads that Imperial advantages don't justify their weaknesses, which I think we can all mostly agree on. Balance in this game currently needs a LOT of work and at least in MP I don't think it's ready for release. I'm not sure what resou...

Re: Eldar Assault Boats

Yep the ordnance section of the ships of the gothic sector of the eldar corsairs list explicitly notes that they don't use assault boats.

Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

Except you don't need a swarm of fighters to stop torp spam. 1 fighter takes out an entire wave of torps. Was one of the few genuinely glaring balance issues besides a few underpriced ships that never got addressed. But if the enemy didn't abuse it, (and i know from one thing or another that a lot d...
