Hi folks, so we all know we have a bit of a problem with Ranger infestation, right?
They are super fast, have anti bleeed bravery, do decent DPS and their price actually decrease at each new ranger unit produced due to unlock mechanic. They also have infiltration and several great doctrines.
So i was thinking about it, and with their actuall design IMO they will always either deliver too much cause their design OR get not enough damage to be effective and become useless.
Still, in lore they are supposed to seriously kick ++heresy redacted++ (well, in lore pretty much everyone is supposed to kick ++heresy redacted++)
So my sugestion is:
- GREAT damage reduction.
instead of outright damage dealer rangers should become a SUPPORT unit, a infiltrated spotter that buffs the army, each unit hit by a ranger shoot takes 25% extra damage from every other eldar source. (or another number, need to try, for sure thats a guess).
But that would let loldar with a HUGE problem against Setup teams, as Rangers are they proper counter to Setup teams so they could receive a new PASSIVE skill called:
Gives knock down effect on SETUP team while setup, giving the oppening dor the eldar army to enter and ++heresy redacted++ the opponent.
So Rangers would be a support unit that scout and buff the army without being massable (the actuall ranger buff should NOT stack).
