Tau at Rank 8. A rant.

Postby Uksharazad87 » 09 September 2016, 14:40

Heyup.

I've just got my Fleet to rank 8 with my bro doing 2v2. I'm getting flashbacks of the Space marine DLC. We cannot use our Castellan BB in any games. They cost 407pts making them 7pts over the top point game.

My suggestion to fix this is Give players the ability to discard bonus renown points to the other player in *all* 2v2. this WILL NOT increase match sizes. I know its probably complicated, but to be frank its needed.

In the 2v2 menu you just need two "arrow buttons" ether side of the bonus renown. one is "Ask for Renown" the other is "Give renown"

If you use the ask button the "Give" button would flash in the other player menu. Clicking the "Give" button would give 5 points of renown to the reciving players point pool.


Please give us something like this. Or just add another 50pts (850pts games to 2v2, 2v2co-op, 2v2 ranked, 2v2 elite)

Please can you fix this before release.

Many thanks

or drop it to 400 pts, i dont think a 7 pt drop is going to break it.

me to but being realistic, they are unlikely to develop such a feature as many features that have been asked for havent been put in or took forever. :P

What's wrong with just taking a Stronghold?
It's a very solid BB and is well within the points limit.

Im really quite frustrated over this, boarding on angry. My situations the following:

Both me and my bro have downloaded the patch, and started playing, solely in 2v2 over the past day and today. The only way we've seen Tau has been through 2v2. we both hit rank 8 about an hour ago. So disappointed and angry due to the same Fiasco when Space marines were released. Luckily were in BETA though, so im hopeful of Seeing any kind of fix before Release.

Becuase its not a Tau ship. I have a Stronghold and a Kroot warsphere in my list. They're usefull in there own ways. but if you read my above paragraph, you'll hopefully understand my situation a bit more.

I'd rather have more points, give us 1k point battles in both 1v1 and 2v2 games please!

Frankly, all the gravihook ships need a point reduction, they are just not worth the excessive extra points to bring 2+ Escorts.

If you're sacrificing weaponry for Escorts then the Escorts need to be cheap enough to be a significant discount to their normal point cost due to the opportunity cost of not having more weaponry.

They are with the Dhow upgrade, I'd happily pay extra for two of those escorts, and getting two extra escorts to begin with is pretty powerful.

one options that was already mentioned in another post would be having a option to disable gravihooks to adjust the points this could be done in a similar way as they did for orks and there coustom loadouts
