To make EMP effective, you need good micro skill. Cause you can loose all your blade realy fast: one AA shoot and you loose 60 metal and 1K energy.
Blade did not need to be weaked at all: you actually see very few poeple using them. Poeple should focus on other balance issue than that. It is like if I was starting to complain forever about janus being able to fire above wreak in all thje threads whereas riot cannot.
Just revearse blades as they used to be
I know many people who complain about Blades. And it's the opposite of me sucking with them, I find them too easy. You have a giant army rushing at you, raiders, stumpys, flash, maybe even a few sams. I'm Core, wut 2 do? I know! Spam Blades in their dozens, easily EMP the whole army, kill them all with scouts.
Seriously, say what you like, Blades were OP, now they're not so bad. If this change is reverted I will assassinate Albator myself.
Go ahead :D
But first, try to kill a decent player at CCR , u core, the other arm, you will see how blades are the only way to prevent you to be raped by stumpy since they owned so much. However, even with blades, since a few AA are able to kill a large army of blades (one missile kill a blades : 60 metal and 1k E in a single shot !) for a really small cost, you will eventualy die. I made some 1vs1 againt 8D, playing core, blades didnot save me , they just postpone my death, cause poeple like 8D (he is just an exmple) actually does not play with only one unit. If you want to play stumpy spam only, go play starcraft of command and conquer. With the current states of blades, It is just much more efficient to spam more raider than blades than will have so much less efficiency.
Gonna tell a story. More thanone year from now, I started to spam every single game, blades with my second factory on any game I played. Since My playing style consists in reclaiming as much as possible so I can get the biggest army so I dotn have to rely on crappy allies to coordinnates attack, it was quite easy. After a while, I was reading thing like this when I was watching replay:
Alba ingame, may AA,he will mass spam blades. It remind me a little bit of how pople use to react about regret behaviour. Anyway, after a while I just stopped to make air factory as my second factory since poeple were finnally making some AA. What tell this story is simple: It is not becasue poeple have a bad playing style that you have to find solution such that even with a crappy playing style they can still win by building random unit. I really dont want BA to become a game like starcraft when only spam matter. You obviouly want it. You cannot denny that blades are really expensive and extremely weak. If ennemy make blades, you have time to make fighter. If you want to make a second factory to spam more stumpy, this is your choice, dont dont blame the mod cause the "fuckin' balance does not allow me to win with only stumpies". (This is btw, one of the reason why there are more playing playing arm than core btw). I am only able to use blades efficently since I have the autogroup widet btw, before that, my micro skill were too low to make that efficient and I used to play arm casue it was much more easy to spam a mix of 5 stumpy 1 samson
