Those Lancers are most definitely Elites. It feels unwise to reuse assets, given the precarious nature of C&D.

 

Microsoft has a particularly bad hair-trigger, considering they shelved a Generals mod in favor of Halo Wars.

 

Apart from that, superb presentation here. Seems like the Foehn's shtick is bionics, ala the Ordos of Dune.

 

That 'blob of pixels' might just resemble one. Pure coincidence. ;)

 

I don't even know what Halo is. :shiftee:

 

 

I've played Halo for years and the unit posture is a dead giveaway. Smaller details reinforce the notion -- their armor, weapon and proportions.

 

I understand why infantry voxels are difficult, but more discretion would be better; nobody wants a triple-A company breathing down their neck.

 

Overall, something to keep in mind for the long term, and as an advance warning. Make it easier for adapting should things come down to this.

The Elite SHP that the Lancer was modified from has been publically available for download on PPM for about 7 years now, and it still is today. If MS or Bungie didn't take it down years ago, they probably don't care now. If they even know about it at all.

This works, in that case. Thanks for the clarification.

Infantry doesn't use voxels btw.

If a Foehn subfaction has the Ordos Laser Tanks from Emperor: Battle for Dune, I will make cartwheels of joy.

 

Also once again, the flavor text is teasing the storyline: "Whatever is left of the Proselytes, the few still in power remember to keep their tanks at a distance when a Lancer team closes in."

 

Does that mean that the outcome of the Battle of Antarctica crippled Epsilon, as well as the other factions? If that's the case then the rise of Foehn in the aftermath of a Epsilon-dominated world becomes less implausible if Epsilon is struggling to maintain control due to overextending its troops.

Maybe it's only Yuri who got wrecked in that battle, thus leaving his Proselytes to themselves. It's still an Epsilon win, but the whole faction is built upon Yuri being the only and one dictator.

As for the Ordos Laser Tank... the Pacific Front already have it in the form of the Kappa Tank.

It's nowhere mentioned (I think) in the previous news bulletin that Phantasm can disguise itself as tree or other objects like Mirage do, even tho the tank seems to be taking Mirage Tank's feature.

So does it projecting an illusion like Mirage Tank or not..?

Good catch, indeed it does disguise itself as several objects.

Good to know, good to know... Although I wonder if its attack can be changed to other projectiles tho...

I mean, KEP Cannon seems to travel to their target invisibly, which makes sense for it to use its camouflage ability, since you won't know/see the attacks coming from.

 

But Phantasm use....missiles ._. or maybe that's because it's just a stolen tech, so Speeder made it like Foehn not really thinking it through, and even tho it works, it's kinda silly..?

Probably would fit Foehn better if Phantasm use somekind of compressed air/wind? xD Just a thought.

OKAY

 

NOW

 

If Phantasm's missiles are not a tri-missile with exhaust color of pink - green - blue, I would get some straws and made a voodoo doll to torment Speeder at that point.

You said it. You said it. Now it's a debt.

So technically, it's a repurposed Genetic Mutator SW? Interesting!


Does it play unit lost when you fire it on your own troops?

 

 

No, it doesn't.

How much health does Clairvoyant have compared to other infantries at average? Is it larger by a huge margin? (Won't go down from 1 Pillbox in 5 seconds)
