Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

Obviously I am not aware of this. If that's the case, then let's just look at some of the armaments of the Chaos ships compared to their illustrious Imp counterparts The Chaos Hellbringer Mk1 (a CL)- 2x Plasma Macro Turrets (apparently) + 2x Ordnance Bays The Dictator (a CA) - 2x Macro Battery + 2x...

Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

Uh, what? Buffing plasma macros wouldn't have anything to do with Chaos accuracy at long range. Chaos doesn't use plasma macro. That's only for bigger Imp ships. You are aware that all chaos batteries are plasma based? It doesn't list it in game but thats what they actually are. You can't justify a...

It would certainly help, Imperials are the most expensive faction ATM.

Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

no i feel that plasma macros just need to be given the reverse mega kannonz treatment and make the weapons much more accurate


Right because making chaos more acurratte at long range would be such a brilliant idea. /sarcasam

Re: Those rarely seen Imp cruisers

Yeah i definitely feel like support for Hybrid ships needs to be made better. That said i'm not sure the issue is remotely with the weapons but the fundamental design of certain imperial ships. As noted all the imperials long range initial designs that weren't carriers, (fun fact on TT the Mars's ba...

Re: What would it take to impove Imp Navy in ya'lls opinions?

The thing is, at 0K range, with AP and torp use, assuming 100% hitrate, and assuming the Orks didn't take dps output upgrades, the IN does have slightly higher dps than an Ork ship. This is probably what Tindalos used to balance. However, that level of accuracy is total BS to achieve, and Orks have...

Re: What would it take to impove Imp Navy in ya'lls opinions?

Again it's because they're based off tabletop values. The Tyrant, the Overlord, and the Retribution had terrible TT reputations. Threads asking for a buff to the later 2 where a constant front page fixture of the old specialist games forums. Which should be pretty informative on it's own.

Re: What would it take to impove Imp Navy in ya'lls opinions?

Honestly i think someone else hit the nail on the head earlier. Imps are jacks of all trades whilst everyone else is specialists. Imps to beat any one faction in any one setup need exactly the right combination of ships and weapons. Where's everyone else has a one size fits all approach. A lot of it...

Re: Imp cannot beat brawling chaos.

When your fighting at ranges measured in 10's of thousands of km each target falls into an area just a tiny fraction of 1 degree across. You don't need the weaponry to be able to fire 360.

Admittedly that dosen't make imperial designs great but they're not quite as bad as they seem.

Re: [Just For Fun]: Imperium Battleship Scale vs Real

And yet the old specialist games forums had a word from one of the devs, (probably Gav Thorpe), saying 1-2km for escorts 3-4km for cruisers and 5km for BB's.
