This is a thread to show some appreciation for some of the MO factions. Feel free to post which faction's gameplay is your favorite and why.
For me, Haihead has some of the best gameplay in MO, because a lot of their units have mechanics that reward micro.
Shadrays can destroy anything in a line. You balance between maximizing damage output and not overextending your shadrays.
Diverbees can't auto-attack and need to manually target enemies.
Fin will reload faster if he doesn't run out of ammo. So you can increase damage output by saving that last bullet.
Irritators need to be carefully managed. You have to keep them out of mobile threats like jets, make sure to have them deployed, and try to confuse big targets like a Mastodon.
Haihead is one of those factions where obsessively micro-ing every unit actually provides you meaningful rewards.
Also, this subfaction has extremely versatile utility units/powers that open room for creativity.
Syncronauts/Syncronins work well with different units and allows for some degree of creativity in how you use them, e.g with Shadray, Megalodon, Quetzals, Diverbees, or Jackals.
Use Signal Jammer jammer to stop a Chinese EMP from countering your tech snipe, or prevent EA from deploying force shield when you use your superweapon.
Blackout Missile helps with sieging or delaying support power activation.
tl;dr Haihead rewards micro and their support powers are versatile. That's why their gameplay is fun.
