moody, unstable Libra - ok
revolution-like Morales -cringe
creepy Rahn - ok
cold, cynical Siegfried - bland
I don't get it. About his in-game role - he is an artillery unit, he has to be slow but powerful. Also he's from EA, which is slow subfaction. He isn't a "durty, dirty teamkiller" - you are a dumb, dumb commander who makes it happen. Seriously, AoE is 3x3, so it won't damage your units if you don't fight THAT close to the enemy. And you know why you hadn't problem with others? Because others don't have area-of-effect weapons (except poor Eureka).
Glory glory Euro Alliance!
Wow, didn't expect this level of hate but ok, ill bite. I never stated Rahn but ill let him stay and yes, it did like Libra because they fit their faction. I have always seen the Yuri faction since they were first revealed in RA2:YR to be the misfit monster movie faction. They played fairly odd and had many, many oddball units that work awfully on their own but when combined make an odd synergy. It makes sense that Rahn is a creep since he is a genetically modified monster that believes in the superiority of the modified gene and Libra who is essentially the little girl from fire starter but with a mean streak. They are absolute misfits in the only faction that would accept misfits like themselves.
My rag on Morals is entirely due to the voice actor. Every. single. line. is screamed, exaggerated and doesn't flow well. It sounds like he is trying hard to to laugh after every single one or that they were all kinda strung together from separate conversations after the fact. I guess you can say "shame on you" if you want for expecting every line to not be shouted but hey, it gets annoying after a while.
Yeah, you got me, i guess the voice lines ar't awful for Sigfried. the delivery is ok but it's missing something that puts me off, call it personal taste. i still have a problem with the in game unit though. I like every other hero unit because i can have them mixed in with the main force without fear of self damage. That is part of the point. It doesn't matter if i have any other hero in a group moving toward their base, i don't need to worry about my units who happen to stumble to close getting the shaft. I can have a pick and mix with a hero and stuff roll through without fear of demolishing my own armored force.Yeah, it's not a problem when you are spamming Thors with other air units. The real problem comes with a mixed force of tanks and troops, especially a problem infantry units like seals who need to get in close or IFVs and if you are balling those trrops up it's hard to micro every single one.
I mean if you can make it work, that is good for you, i don't like him because he doesn't work with how i play and as a result do not like him. I happen to like to use my units in a ball and every other hero i use works well like that. Siegfried is the outlier in this. Not to mention he comes off as the most specialized of the heroes/hero combos. Oh, and his "make all units near by ability" is a death sentence to anyone trapped outside since you just cut your firepower down by a 3rd and all an experienced commander needs to do is wait for it to wear off in order to attack you after wiping anything not in the bubble
I find him useless and don't like him, that's that.
