So tell me, how can two ASM's with Power Swords wipe 4 boyz squads but the Kommando comes out of no where and wipes most of their models?
He can still shoot when engaged in melee with them. It makes no sense and this frustrating crap is really killing the fun of the game for me.
Oh you lost your entire army? Here have most of your resources back during phase 1. This has happened far too many in games recently where a bad player doesn't get punished for making stupid decisions or takes one elite such as the Kommando to wipe all of your line units.
I've said it before but I think 1 elite per army would have been a far more balanced and better option.
Relic asked on Facebook the other day what elite's do we use for MP? I replied with whatever is the most broken because why not?
Ven dread gives ASM's a secondary jump ability which is stupidly powerful.
The Autarch can suck an entire army into one location to get destroyed (including tanks, where is the strategy in an instant gib ability?)
Honestly the game is like an abusive partner. You keep telling yourself you love them deep down but it keeps beating you with a baseball bat regardless because you tried to do something other than using OP elite's or line units (Stun scout spam, how in hells name does that destroy armies?)
Doctrines, Elite's and certain line units (As well as escalation phases) really need looked into ASAP post balance patch. I guarantee the balance patch will do bugger all other than change the meta to something else. ASM power swords get moved to tier 2? No problem, spam scouts with the stealth damage doctrine or tacs with slow death flamers. Why even try to vary things up?
I've been a huge supporter of the game before and after launch as many people will probably know but now I feel it's taking the p***.
