If Soviets are the new Korea, then who is the new Iraq? Latin Confederation? Also, is HQ now the new Yuri with those buffs to Rahn and Foehn just a special case of France? :smile2ap:

This is what I see when anyone misspell Fury Drone as Furry Drone

 

I made a youtube playlist of songs that may have inspired mission names (at least 50% is correct and seen by Speeder himself)

Tesla cruiser is neither weak or OP. But it is truely overused. I never seen a Russian blob without them. Yeah it does jack shit vs buildings but Russia have SCUD for a reason. And that one is a nasty building killer.
Even after you get stolen techs like Apocalypse or Iron Dragon they are still necessary. The EMP effect is too good to ignore.

 

 

THANK YOU!

 

(note: if you are too lazy to bring SCUDs cause they're slow, then bring Borillos cause they are as fast as Tesla Cruisers)

Obviously China, because you know, the most environmentally irresponsible subfaction :v

If anything, Korea was one of the most OP factions in vanilla multiplayer. Everyone expects them to build jets so people start building AA to counter it, only to get tank rushed.

 

Err, I almost never built AA, and rather built tank defenses. Later, when they had the jets and were starting to TARGET ME instead of another enemy, I would build up AA.

 

Korea up? Lol

 

Sorry what?

 

I rather fight Korea than France.

Same, especially since I like NAVAL wars.


Me:What? Got a problem?

*Building captured*

Potatoes:YEEEEEEEEES!

Me:Well tough. Deal with it.

*Construction Complete*

*Insert war factory IN HIS base*

*Construction Complete*

*Insert Barracks*

Potatoes:NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! *Evacuating his base*

*Engineer capture the rest of his base, and nukes the only way out*

Me:Sorry, pal. I've been holding back for 2 hours.

Potatoes:*forfeits match*

Me:XD

I was talking about pvp experience. France is pretty much useless on multiplayer by the way. France and germany are somehow weak because you loose para-sniper-black eagle. Same whit soviets being iraq mandatory..

Honestly, I find that PsiCorps lacks breakthrough potential. Yes, they have better mind control units but they lack the heavy hitters needed to crack open a well defended base, and before someone suggests lasher and Gatling spam then grab a handful of pebbles and throw them at a brick wall, and you may understand my complaint.

And that's also my gripe with scorpion cell, all you can really do with them is spam spam spam, spam spam spam and spam with spam, spam and spam.

At least SC has those... you know... Tyrants. *eyetwitch*  PsiCorps definitely has it bad against well defended bases (unless the faction they're playing against doesn't or can't stop Bloatick spam), and this is likely true when there's heavy anti-infantry for the infantry, and defenses to break any Magnetrons.  In many cases, I can see em being forced to either mass Bloaticks if they can or just go for Basilisks in these cases.  Lucky for them, they can at least suppress armor/Foehn divisions well with magnetic tech.

Is it just me who find Stalkers spam supported by Rahn a pain in ass just like godsbane spam?

Without air units I found stopping them from cracking my defenses a very hard thing to do.

I do feel that way sometimes, but now-a-days, Stalkers are not as common as generic Epsilon infantry spam which is worse.  I would think that using air units to kill icky Rahn first, then sending vehicles to clean up Stalkers (avoid close-ranged infantry due to their secondary weapon's ability to give healing) can help.  Thankfully the changelog says Rahn will get fire rate nerfs (thank god) and Stalkers being less effective against vehicles.

If you think godsbanes are bad then add kingsframes and maybe teratorns for AA support and you have yourself a real treat

Toxic Strike - underused. To little damage, to easy to shoot down. And overpriced. Perhaps I'm using it wrong.

 

Field Medic - underused. Use them as support for Tanya or Siegfried only.

Siege Cadre - not used. I want to try them, but every time it's better to use prism tanks for example.

Chrono Legionnaire - underused. Rarely train them and use in defence only.

Charon Tank - heavily underused. I build them on very rare occasions, against Centurion or MADMAN and only one or two.

Blizzard Tank - underused. I like them. Really. But they useful against Kirovs only. And that makes me sad.

Cryocopter - underused. Cost, build time. I mix them with warhawks usually.

Dolphin - not used. No reason for that, I just build destroyers instead.

 

Crazy Ivan - heavily underused. On rare ocassions only.

Arsonist - heavily underused. Your opponent will wait them and AI just spam dogs without particular reason.

Stalin's Fist - underused. Those are useful on big maps only or during base rush.

Fury Drone - not used. Not bad, just pain in ass to use.

Dustdevil - not used. It's weak. I would use them as desperate measure, but those requires slots. And slots better to use for Foxtrots.

 

Dubbik-Attacker - not used. Those just terrible.

Hazequad - not used. No particular reason. Even if they much better in comparison to Chimera Cores.

Giant Squid - not used. Piranha packs are more useful.

You do realize that Charons cannot attack centurion/madman and Blizzard tanks are insanely good against infantry aswell?

I think 3-4 charons can wipe out a centurion?? I am not sure at all.
