So, I'd really like to get these assault marines working since they're suppose to be over powered and they're the closest thing in this game to a chainaxe. I am under the impression that they aren't working for me because I am not supporting them properly with ranged support, I guess?
Can someone help me make my enemies ragequit? lol, but seriously, how do you win with the assault marines? They're very expensive. I find that it takes a while before I have a force that can threaten my opponents and before that I'm just getting bled and harassed. Should I not make anything until the barracks and ASM?
I can kill their generator just fine, but I have two problems. The first one is super early game where I have like maybe 2 squads competing with 3 boyz and 3 shoota squads or 3 dire avengers and some banshees and maybe scorpions, too. Then, my next problem is right around escalation 2 when I've built up a moderate force of ASM that just don't seem good enough to compete with the mob of enemies they inevitable come across.
I'm inclined to prefer scouts/snipers over the others due to the fact that I won't have to build a new building, but should I be considering ASM + Devs or ASM + Tactical?
I'd love to make them work.
