How did eldar end up like this?

Postby BanjoJohn » 08 June 2016, 12:22

In tabletop they had

1 battleship; 2 cruisers; 2 light cruisers; 4 escorts

somehow this got warped to 1 battleship; 1 battlecruiser; 1 cruiser; 2 light cruisers; 4 escorts

They also took the Solaris, which only had weapon batteries, and gave it launch bays.

And made pulsar lances act way differently, with a much smaller angle of attack, a straight line instead of the 90 degree arc they used to have.

Holofields work wonky, armor values are wonky, speed and turn rates are wonky. Combustion guage in the game in general has replaced tactical use of special orders for maneuvering. This all just leaves me wondering what the heck is going on.

Popular opinion is that Eldar are too strong and need to be wonked further.

I used to play eldar on TT, but I haven't had much success figuring them out in this game. Obviously some people are doing well, but they are just so different from what I'm used to that I am not really able to grasp their strength yet. Is pulsar sniping really the way to go? How can I win?

Get pulsar ranged upgrade
Saim-hann favour
Don't bother with starcannon upgrades and focus on mobility/survivability

Set engagement range to 9k/12k after ranged upgrade
Frontal engagement behavior before using pulsars
Broadside engagement behavior after using pulsars


Klick at an ememy ship/blip
Shoot from 9k/12k range at the enemy
Turn around via vault's maneuver
Avoid the enemy until pulsars are off cd again
Use silent running if your ships got detected or just to stealth ykur ships
Rinse and repeat

Before battlecruiser and battleship:
Use mostly the Soaris LCs
Use silent running/reload
Avoid the enemy and let bombers do their job

If you want to play Shadow:
Torpedo them from afar
Avoid the enemy
Use silent running and/or reload
Rinse and repeat


Get taunted?
MJW out
Stasis Bomb to keep the enemy from moving/stop projectile fire

If you want to use them even better
Engagement range to 12k
Broadside engagement behavior
Aim Pulsars manually


Easy as that
I play Orkz to collect all those salty Imperial tears

@Sagranda thanks for the tips. I will begin much practice! Although the update coming soon might change things, we will see.
