Taunt finally gone :) really hated the whole idea you could taunt a ship into attacking something.


I'm actually afraid, that it may be somewhat bad thing later on, as I dont feel that my chaos carrier fleet has a nice counter. It's way easier to kite and bomb enemies now. I'm not invincible, I may lose 1-2 ships, but my carriers are build to be tanky enough to survive, when enemies catch up to me for some time.

Nice. I posted many times that Mega Cannons with 4 gap-loser skills and Armor Piercing is bullshit. No more of this cancer.

It was said: "All other assault actions (Lightning strikes and affiliated (excepted Avatar of Khaine), Shokk-Attack Mega Kannon, Boardin’ Torpedoes, etc…) can only cause subsystems temporary critical damages."

It IS a serious nerf. And I have to rewrite my boarding guide. I'm looking forward to my first Convoy Defense against Ork Zzaps ... NOT.


Yeah so much for my khorne brawler fleet...... If i cant permanently crit with the 3 Teleportariums its wasted.

People complained about the void stalker, and you left it with 9k pulsars anyway. Taunt is gone as well. Now that thing is still cruising 75-100 faster than most of non escort ork/imperial ships, while still lazing them with 2 auroras worth of pulsars every 20 or fever seconds. With 4 launch bays and more hp.

It is easier to deal with in 1v1s now, but still ridiculous in 2v2s. Can't torpedo it, can't use squadrons against it, can't taunt it anymore. How about you split it into a carrier version and pulsar version as you did with other eldar ships?

Even if you charge it and board via lightning strikes, yeah, those criticals are no longer permanent.

You dont need taunt to rek carrier kite fleets. Dauntless and firestorms spams beat carrier fleets 9 times out of 10. With so many firestorms and dauntlesses you simply cant survive and your bombers will have a hard time taking down spammed up escorts. Imperials have the tools to hard counter carrier fleets. Its up to the player to use them lol. Chaos carrier fleets tend to do really bad in chaos mirrors also if they go lance fleet with 2 carriers for support

Another great update, with one exception: Termies and MoK lightning not doing permanent damage is an absolute BS. It's a whole point of lightning strikes to teleport and elite strike team to take out something important. What, elite teams are now worse than simple boarding party? I can even understand assault boats not doing permanent damage because they get more assault points per actual boat sent (boarding action gets 2-5 action points while sending like 30 assault boats). Leave lightning not doing permanent damage but let Termie/Daemonic lightning actually be better for god's sake.

Now nobody's going to use lightnings anymore.

Yes I think than Biel tan +10 troop and perma LS crit is far better than MoK/SM +5 troop and +1 LS (not perma)/BA

Yeah. Sm/Mok has been nerfed too hard, while Bieltan has been NOT nerfed at all. There is zero reason to take these favours now.

Please help me change skirmish to be customisable. Its very important for PVE players.

But how would you know, that it is a carrier fleet in advance? You wont go for a heavy escort fleet by default vs chaos, because lances exist. And still, even with such fleet, it's not that easy to catch 2x Styx with at least one skill for a mobility. They also have 2 lance + 6 macro dps now, which can quite help with sniping escorts one by one.
