Vote for the most useless T1 weapon

Post by Troman » 24 Nov 2006, 00:20

There seems to be a lot of controversion lately, so let's find out which one it is, this information can help us to rebalance weapons, if there will be such a need. Personally I have a clear winner (or a loser actually).

If you vote for 'Other' please let everyone know what weapon it is.

actually both the minipod and miniarty are to me useless as teats on a bull.

Light cannon/minipod/minipod artillery(it's not artillery...)
tasks postponed until the trunk is relatively stable again.

Light cannon. Pathetic damage coupled with pathetic reload.

The one and only use I have EVER had for the mini-pod is that it allows me to research lancers.

I found the mini-pod cool but of little use as the LANCER is so much better.

I also think it is a rather cool T1 weapon, it's a shame it is so underpowered. It got my vote.

The minipod was uber in 1.12... Maybe I still use it because of that. (You know, my game experience is far from complete. ;) )

I think its no need to rebalance game now. Ma be in future only.

For me heavymachingun is the POWER in T1. I always res. twinmachinegun  & build its at first not too much (5-15) than res. H.machingun & make a "serial" production of its :). (20-40 units). Its enough to destroy everything on their way.

minipod is useless, but you can tell that from the stats.

now the twin-machinegun: that actually looks cool and you use that until you have to recycle all those units to upgrade to the heavy machinegun the next mission -- minipod is useless, but the twin-machinegun is a waste of time.

heh...

don't forget kage, this poll is an overall uselessness factor... TMG may be of little use in the Main Campaign, but in multiplayer, it isn't so much a waste... ;p
