Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

@LawANDorder It wasn´t pointed at you but at FiveAces and the others calling Punsho rude even though he used no offensive language or any kind of aggressive wording whatsoever. Listen, we are all contributors and fans of this game so really no need for the crap attitude. If it matters, Punsho did c...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

"However, you are just pivoting and recycling that one scenario from the gif you made with Punsho - where a mammoth wins by running away. In most other cases, soldiers with equal cost will win." Once again, no. That gif shows perfectly spread infantry, AND the mammoth kills the two rifles first. Th...

Your link doesn't work Luftwaffe. Here, let's use your logic for a moment. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/228905084212346880/563768976807559185/Artillery_Melee.mp4 As you can see, the advanced unit artillery died to infantry, what it's supposed to counter! Without firing a single shot. Foll...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

[/img] I´m sorry to interrupt this discussion about Mammoths with something "Trivial" but since when are people called out for having "bad attitude" when they have seemingly done their research and the other guy didnt but got offended and stated he was offended so everyone else pitties the offended...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

I acknowledge that soldiers surrounding a Mammoth is not realistic gameplay but that was just to start off and prove the basic point. However, I have created 2 other scenarios: First, soldiers attack a Mammoth and second, The Mammoth attacks soldiers. Every time soldiers win - same cost ($2000) but ...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

Next time do your research Yeah, Punsho, dude, there is no point discussing anything with you, your attitude is total crap and counterproductive. You don't even read the posts or maybe you just don't understand. I have posted the screenshots with a Mammoth being destroyed by 6 rockets and 2 infantr...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

The whole idea of this game is to reward players for investing more into the tech, and beyond just the basic units and buildings. The crucial example is that 6 rockets and 2 rifles provide a much better return on investment (same cost) than one Mammoth. If your desire is to incentivize people to use...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

Who are "most people"? No, actually they don't vaporize - test it yourself. Make a map with 2 rifles and 6 rockets (the same cost) vs a mammoth and this is what happens: The mam killed only 1 rifle and 1 rocket. Not to mention another example where 5 mechanics just take over 5 mammoth husks and inst...

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

Nerfing advanced units is counter-productive imo. The mammoth tank is very expensive, takes a long time to produce, needs high-tech and is very slow. Takes only 3-4 rocket soldiers to take it out - level 1 basic units. Why remove detection and turret reach - absolutely no need. If anything, the mamm...

Re: Red Alert Balance Suggestion

Excellent. Again, I consider BME-theme the art masterpiece. Nobody will ever be able to match this, in any shape or form. It came out of nowhere, and only a small community about 200 active openRA players will ever see it. BME is pure "Americanata", 100% purity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rr8lj...

Re: Red Alert Balance Suggestion

Dude, you are a pure genius. I am speechless. I just don't understand how can someone show up one day and throw out all these modifications, sounds, animations, and chariots of fire. Not sure if this is a reality anymore? Seriously. Reality hijacker. The whole new level. BTW - what's that disco song...

Ok that worked but now getting a bunch of other errors - seems there are more compatibility issues.

Re: Balance thread for release 20190314

There should be some kind of a dynamic matrix/scale calculator (cost, armor, speed, build time, reqs, etc.) in order to methodically approach any changes and balances, otherwise, it is kind of endless endeavor based on personal preferences. The very basic units -riflemen, rockets, light vehicles app...
