Re: successor for Bunker Buster

Yes, I know there are differences, I was speaking about IRL, and suggesting we make a gun of the rail line, that serves as a replacement for the HPV. For one, I don't think anyone will use the Needle Gun, its just not any better than the cannons until upgraded sufficiently, at which point there is t...

Re: successor for Bunker Buster

I see no reason a Railgun couldn't do what a high velocity cannon could. Perhaps the Needle or Rail gun can be made analogous to the HPV cannon, since rails are the T3 replacement of cannons. FWIW, I think the Mass Driver Fort needs a range increase to be more competitive with the Missile fort. Betw...

Global Laser Satellite Limit

The way games usually go now, laser sat command posts are just used to destroy enemy laser sat command posts, to prevent their own destruction. One might try a vtol raid, and then attack elsewhere with the sat, but they could just attack the sat with their own, and vtol raid where they were going to...

Re: More Rank Complexity

Sometimes teams are way imbalanced, usually when a semi-noob is the host. They will just give themselves all the good players. You might also have some name recognition, that supercedes the rank,Zarel. I do remember one game where someone asked you if you were a noob, thereby revealing himself as a ...

Re: Atomic Bomb

[parody or sarcasm]If we get nukes dropped by VTOLs, we should also get missile silos. If we get missile silos, we should be able to launch our own laser satelittes into orbit. If we can put weapons in orbit, we should be able to fight in orbit, so we should add spaceships. I hear parts of Homeword ...

Re: More Rank Complexity

Hacking your rank is bad for you, unless you purposefully lower it, but not too much. People will look at ranks when trying to balance teams if they don't know everyone well. So making yourself look better = get stuck with a worse ally. And as to hacking your rank lower... you can always just create...

Re: The balance changes in 2.3.5

hey, back in 2.2 something heavy bodies allowed two turrets I personally liked my cannon+ lancer Mantis vtols, or my Pulse+ scourge Vengeance... against the computer in skirmish. Two weapons wouldn't completely change warzone. A fixed loadout for vtols would. I predict that if twin weapon loadouts a...

Re: The balance changes in 2.3.5

I think air to air weapons should be specialized; mounting the Flak Cannon or hurricane/whirlwind/cyclone on an aircraft is quite unusual; that is not done IRL. Anti-Air weapons are not typically designed to be, ironically, mounted on aircraft. Stinger missile, Sidewinder/chaparral missile. 20mm hi...

Re: Atomic Bomb

Nukes wars would be terrible... unless they are weak like starcraft nukes, in which case, they'd be just like the laster sat with perhaps different targeting. IMO the research tree is fine... except for the list of structures, most of which I never use. Many research topics could be gotten rid of by...

Re: Units designs and factories.

I would prefer if you change the design mid production, it continues to produce the unit it was making with the old design, and any new production that was qued uses the new design. I encounter this problem most often as I progress up the MG tree. Currently what I do, is always make a new design (no...

Re: "Beta 7" vs "Beta VII"

I don't like the way they sound combined. Lets look back at the first post, the reason for the re-naming: When people talk about having e.g. problems in beta7 my first thought is always why they're not using 2.3.4 To re-iterate what I said in my previous post: People will use shorthand, unless they ...

Re: "Beta 7" vs "Beta VII"

If you use roman numerals, people are still going to use a number when asking for help, and use a number as shorthand in most posts. The same goes if you spell out the numbers. If people were aware there could be confusion, and tried to prevent it by not using shorthand, then we wouldn't have a prob...
