Re: Yet Another Anti-DSD Thread - Got banned for promoting host

The main problem here is that the new guys mostly see ba dsd and balanced annihilation has alot more to offer. I don't see much point in big tourneys atm, people has to be good at 1v1 first. Team games are really the next level 2v2 / 3v3 are considerably harder, cooperation communication, teamwork, ...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

The first problem is with the huge games, i can accept that it's matter of preference, but the game wont remain balanced indefinitely as the player count goes up( think of other great games if still unconvinced about this one ) ,so my point is if you play 12v12badsd that's fine by me just don't expe...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

@smoth: The counter to vulcans was always the emp launcher - which took a range nerf (and for very good unrelated reasons). @manmax: There is no need for a superweapon to end games. Just look at game times on the 'no lolcannon' host, which started about 2 weeks ago, presumably because someone, I kn...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

Vulcans... Games should be over in half an hour 1v1 up to 8v8, if they last longer this almost always due to the passivity of the inexperienced players, and while some might consider spamming afus for eternity fun, having a wonder like building which if played right ends the game is crucial. I would...

Re: Rocko cost 20% more compared to Storm , Why ?

Note that the beamer has superiour dps as well (compared to the HLLT), its cheaper, and the little more range it has makes a lot of difference. the beamer might be the only unit that can convince me of going arm bots on a bot map, instead of core. Yea pretty much flea and beamer has to compensate f...

Re: Rocko cost 20% more compared to Storm , Why ?

There was one very close game on brazillian (I forget who won) where I spammed warriors vs Days core bot. However, I seem to remember that Day said that the rationale is indeed that arm gets the warrior and the flea, thus core gets the cheaper/stronger bots (slightly more HP and they dont have the ...

Re: Rocko cost 20% more compared to Storm , Why ?

Watching a karganeth suddenly float up a cliff in its path in half a second is hilarious, and I hope its remodel accounts for this ability rather than being a pretty mech Also the warrior was originally a t1.5 ish unit in OTA, and since then it hasn't really had a proper role as such.

Re: Rocko cost 20% more compared to Storm , Why ?

If you want mirror faction balance, play a different mod. Mirror balance wont ever be put into BA, as that would make half the units redundant. On morties: the reason they work is the fact that I build two targeting facilities, and keep ample radar with them, and jam if there is sufficient E availa...

Rocko cost 20% more compared to Storm , Why ?

This fact keep bugging me since day one but lets see how could this price difference can be justified, minor differences and unit selection. 1. Core factory cost 25 less metal but the builder cost little more metal and energy, after 2 builder factions are equal after that obviously arm gains a littl...

Re: Favourite faction and factories, and why?

After playing a lot of 1v1 my opinion is changed, the factions are balanced for 1v1 the more crowded the battlefield becomes with players core skips ahead with his brute force. T1 kbot Core The more trees and hills on the map the better Pw becomes over ak and rocket kbots true range will be blocked ...

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

I think the community could sometimes do with being a bit nicer to newcomers and not quite so rude, but the frustration is understandable when a newcomer can accidentally wreck an entire team's game. Newcomers are supposed to sit and watch at least 10 games before making any attempt to play. New gu...

Re: Zipper,Zeus,Maverick Vs Pyro,Can,Sumo t2 kbot fac comparison

The arm sniper hard counters sumo + can. Throw in a jammer + spy kbot and you have an easy to micro, deadly hit-squad. Zeus is also amazing value. I think the unit groups in the thread title are mis-representative to compare, as the roles are not interlinked enough - Core would obviously win in tha...

Dont forget about t1 Peewee remains the best kbot arm can build while core pyro and Can easily beat them, also just found out yesterday pyro has a 1000dmg almost instant selfd Pw>Zipper Maverick is just a waste what would you pick 1 can or 1 maverick or maybe 2 zeus ?

Zipper,Zeus,Maverick Vs Pyro,Can,Sumo t2 kbot fac comparison

Arm imo just cant compete with core in this department Maverick is horrible for the price for 2 zeus he easily beaten by any thinking opponent slow and paperlight and short range , zipper a double hp peewee for 4 times the cost , and zeus seems like the best of them but core has Can which is clearly...

Torpedo Bombers can hit Hovers ???

I always thought torpedos hit targets IN the sea, not targets hovering above it, with full damage too. There are more commonly seen units with torpedo weapons : -Subs -Torpedo launchers And none of them can hit hover , so i concluded torpedo hit targets IN the sea. They are atm one of the best count...

Re: t1 veh factory change , Samson ??

As someone mentioned it up thread, the game offers a way to fight off samson, ie. Hlt. The only argument speaking against Hlt as satisfactory counter to samson is that it entrenches the game along a front. Well, it can be argued that it also gives the player more time to build an army to destroy th...

I dont like them either but community like the cool samsons !

Re: t1 veh factory change , Samson ??

+1 to make Samsons prio shooting air over ground. But about ground: I just love the recent Samson nerv: There are still so many players out there that attack with Samsons and I love to just push straight through them with some levelers and collect M. If Samsons are overused its bad players problem ...
