Played a handful of games this weekend to try the new update with my favorite orky bros. Was really eager to see how well the Lifta-Droppa Wagon worked...and man, I was really disappointed.
It's attack seems really slow, the lifta-droppa seems to only work when it wants to (handful of attempts I've seen it work once agains the AI), 2/3rds of the wagon's functions can be fulfilled by upgraded trukks (arguably better), and the doctrines focus on a (STILL) lackluster unit in the deffkopter.
To further explain: The lifta-droppa thing seems to be a bug. I've seen someone mention of the scrapped ability causing it to not actually throw the selected unit, instead dropping them in place. I have seen it work once, it either never picks up the unit I want or once I select where to throw the unit it just drops the unit harmlessly on the ground where it was holding them.
The best thing about the wagon is that it can reinforce and has a okay CC ability, but is that worth a 5pt Elite slot when throwing units and reinforcement can be done by trukks? Trukks can even throw two units in quickly. The wagon takes what feels like an eternity to pick-up and (hopefully) throw just one unit...
SO, has anyone got some good play out of the Lifta-Droppa Wagon? Is it more than just a glorified mobile forward-base?
