Re: Marker+Extra Turrets+Seeker=op Messenger spam.

It's not a problem on line ships, you can't have enough turrets to gib things and Tau aren't exactly amazing @ 3k range. It's only a problem on messengers because messenger point cost is so cheap AND they have 6 turrets baseline. Do the math, the only way you can squeeze in mass seeker spam is by m...

Re: Marker+Extra Turrets+Seeker=op Messenger spam.

It is hard to say if it is op until we know : Accuracy of seeker turrets? (35% like vs ordnances or they use the Tau accuracy?) Is it DPS vs all ships in range or is it split? It does not use accuracy it's direct damages. DPS is not split between ships, its full DPS against every ship. Ravensburg M...

Re: Tau squadrons require adjustments

Mantas only do 90 damage, 1 bomb, same as normal bombers in total. Each LB is 1.5 dps assuming the manta gets through (which it admittedly often does due to high survivability). If they did 180 Custodian would almost oneshot a BB on a good run (it doesn't). So your "split into 2 bombers" s...

Re: Some Observations

No, cause torps are dogeable and counterable by anti ordnance setups. Novas are just rng, you can't do much to counter them.s Because no can AAF out of the big indicator circles, or overcharge shields or just you know… MWJ out And yes mass torpedo walls can cripple escorts and zone and control thei...

Re: Some Observations

Novas are pretty decent and have been pretty decent for a while (since last time I played which was early summer). For some reason people keep saying they're shit, but I've been using a full nova spam with a lot of success and high win rate... Even a glancing hit from nova will take out 100 shields...

Re: Tau at Rank 8. A rant.

The angles are 180 broadside/front.
If you highlight any weapon system in game you'll see a 270 degree arc. This is because there are 2 of each type of battery, 1 is firing left/front, the other right/front. They overlap in the frontal 90 degrees. Tau ships lose half their firepower from broadsiding.

Re: Some Observations

Tau are a mid range faction, their only long range options are ordnances which have a lot of obvious counters starting with breaking LoS and ending with fighter screens and overapping turrets. They don't have enough long range lances and they don't even have targetting matrix, meaning their accuracy...

Re: Remove from Tau Stealth alloy.

Fleets with camo can use RS right off the bat and have almost 100% stealth uptime. Yeah, you can notice their starting position before they press RS but in case of Eldar or Chaos with emission dissipators they can be anywhere after that with their speed, so that knowledge means very little. But they...

Re: Remove from Tau Stealth alloy.

Missiles are also easy to dodge if you can micro and have limited lifespan and are countered by all things that usually counter ordnance. The upgrade in question is much weaker than the one it replaces (camo) imo, I'd be happy to trade them any time. I wonder what you think about chaos MoT lance fle...
