just wonder others opinions on favors

Postby stalindlrp » 11 March 2016, 21:07

so for em i have noticed that the imps favors seem to be on average better than chaos's ones

for instance the imp navy vs any of the other ones
imp navy lets you spawn a weak but effective cobra and makes you immune to Captain resolve failure
but Nurgles gives a pretty nice soldier boost and a useless AoE that is both to weak to be useful and needs you to be in the worse range for the faction
Slaanesh gives you a nice boost to resolve break chance that is negated by imp navy one and give a situational order removal
definite doesn't compare well to navy or techpriest favors but seems well balanced if balanced vs marine
Tzeentch is just good fits the faction style perfectly to me seems to be the best mark
and Khorne == marine more or less perfectly
so my question is are chaos's marks worse than the imps favors?

Honestly, the good marks I think are Mechanicus, Space marines and Khorne.

Nurgle was better in CTT, but the short range really works against Chaos's playstyle.

On the flip side it works against the Imperial strengths.
Don't really want to close with a nurgle ship too much, so I'd say nurgle has got a good mark.

ehh 3 dmg at super point blank means you will kill the nurgle ship faster than it can take you out in return

I know, it's mainly psychological.
Given the steep payments if all your ships are damaged or destroyed, the threat of a ship doing more damage will prompt many players to stay away from the ship as much as possible, handing over the range advantage on a silver platter.

hmm i never though of it that way but still its not as good as another ability or a speed bump cobra mostly because some people just wont fear it and it isnt good enough to cause that reaction via experince

Oh, I agree.
I'm just pointing out that Nurgle is worth considering, the favor has won me games.

hmm i do think you have pointed out a great effect it might have but yah i am really wondering if Chaos marks need some buff/changed benefits.
how does the slaanesh far for you?

It... Is a little situational, but can be very helpful.
Because you can deactivate active abilities and orders it can make it harder for them to kill your ships (ie remove lock on or reload) and easier to kill their ships (ie remove charged void shields, taunt or brace for impact).

It is situational though.
Only good if your enemy makes a lot of use of abiaties and relies on them heavily enough. But it can swing enagments in your favor when it comes into effect.
