the space marine escort hunter doesn't autocast reload after it has fired its torpedoes or homing torpedoes
what is it waiting for? it is its only skill and i thought that reload was autocast when half of the available skills where used

elite mode question, is the planetkiller auto revealed? it seemed as if it was revealed as soon as the game started
since it had the tzeensh cloud and everything it seems like a waste to have that ships be incapable of hiding

do the niccasar escorts have the disposable trait or the niccasar escort reinforcements only?
i have seen my watercaste fleet have insubordination after 1 messenger died but i have never seen them care about the 30 niccasar that got obliterated after that

does the effect stack? if in the area of 2 ships with repair drones does it heal double? and does it stack with the regular repair?
or is it best to have them running one after the other

do mines get reduced or negated by armor?
i thought that armor reduced mine damage by % like it does for asteroids or ramming
but then i rammed a SM LC into a minefield and it took no damage so ...
considering there are a bunch of mines in a field %reduction made more sense to me but now im doubting

also, not really a gameplay question but how do you turn of the UI in the docks
some of those are amazing and i would like to have a screenshot of one as my background

sad to hear there are some amazing views, you guys did an amazing job on those (the shadow side of the bloodangles ships in the dock is kinda weird tho, the other chapters dont have it, not sure what exactly tho)

what happened to the blueberry, there are a lot of questions still left unanswered, and probably a lot more questions to come with the change to ordnance, if something bad happened wish him a quick recovery, if not tell him to get back here and answer me!
;) jk kinda

awws that is sad to hear
for a long time he was the main voice of Tindalos on these forums, he is missed now, i hope someone will try to fill in that spot
it seems pretty necessary, the silence is causing frustration, and the frustration is doing bad stuff to the general atmosphere on the forum
his full informative half roleplay way of posting did great things for the mood on the forum
that, and i want answers :)
wish him well from me if you ever meet him again

at least i know my fx questions will still be answered :D i know your legion tends to do stealth missions but just dont disappear, there must always be at least a few Alphariusses
