  1. Last game I just stole and used a BSG from a Guilang anyways. Of course I could have gotten double BSG... Now that I think about it almost all SK have BSG against me now. I could be doubling up. Unfortunately I already modded my BSG Bandit with a Combi.
  2. With units like the Locust? A brand new unit with completely novel profiles that people start using as an example of something bloated. If they gave you secret control to change whatever you want they would act exactly the same If PanO was completely gutted and made unplayable they would act exactly the same. Because it's always turned up to 11 in here.
  3. Bandit Combi getting mines is no small part of why I take it. Tomcats have become automatic for me because of this problem.
  4. Basically every faction is in a constant state of being worked on. PanO is not unique in that. We don't know what is meant to stay, what was meant to stay but is slated to change, and what is a mistake. We can't actually tell the difference. And that is the fundamental problem. Anything they do only makes people feel justified or even angry that it isn't enough. Anything they don't do feels unfair and neglected. There can be nothing that makes anyone happy, and the longer a status quo remains the angrier people get. There's no way forward for them to satiate this type of attitude. It's always a useless protest. Why even post here? Just to suffer?
  5. Nice thing about Jaguar link is that it provides DZ defense until you use them. Without Massacre it would be way too obvious to link them because of that. I really don't like reference characters and I don't even like Deadpool. I need to find a permanent proxy for him. I'm definitely going to be using McMurrough at times. If they deploy to stop him it's worth losing an order canceling Imp to get to kill some of their weapons right off the bat with an Intruder. I only have access to an unpainted Duroc for a proxy though. Still gonna do it. I need that 300 point box! I also need Alguacilles SWC thou the old Alguacil HMG suuucks. The MSR rocks I love long haired models.
  6. @Eciu maliciously misunderstanding everything makes it very difficult to discuss anything with you.
  7. Take the Hexas MSR instead. Also you literally just used Intruder as an example.

  9. I don't consider the SWC increased Sgts Vanilla units. But if you're not playing the Crocman you're missing out.
  10. Not only are they optimized for the roles they have but Vanilla gets some amazing selection of different roles without 'making due' with a unit designed for something else. For example choosing to drop Infiltration on your TO so you don't need to pay for it. Compare that to people using the Ninja MSR, wasting a ton of points on multiple skills you wouldn't want to pay for. So they are optimized for their role and have a lot of roles to choose between. The problem with that is taking what you didn't need. Does that count as unique? No parameters were set so no matter what you said, "unique" can have a different meaning to be decided after the fact.
  11. That part is taken care of, I want to make them hide harder Just to be clear, I'm not changing things up due to problems. I'm trying to be abusive. My Intruders are having some bad luck but are still major game changers. Their bad luck is hitting them because they are forcing my opponent to make desperate decisions and they are making it through those decisions anyways because I'm flat out missing. The main problem I'm having is that it goes straight from no targets to constant DTW, which is why I'm liking Bandit Combi to keep range and Tomcat to climb around them. I think there has been a slow shift towards defense being too easy since N3. I got Jaguars, Hassassin got better Mutts and 0 SWC Minelayer, etc, as well as some ITS factors (control objectives for example). I think recent units are trending back but Corregidor already has that unit: the Bandit, and I have no idea if we're slated for more (although we have had constant updates). So I want to figure out how to not only stay competitive but punish over turtling, using what we already have.
  12. Not an option. I don't like to swap team for a meta or mission, that denies you the chance to learn how to deal with new things using the same units. I'll get more Vanilla play in some day. One of my favorite parts playing ALEPH and Qapu are the SK snipers though. I'm sure I would love Prowlers. Hardly gotten to use them but Guilang MSR is incredible. That would work but I'd rather find a solution without proxies and I still haven't gotten around to buying them. They should probably be my next buy. EVO could work with them and Hellcats at the same time and I can skirt the edge to repair them with Tomcats. You lose hacking strength but Correg has a lot to combo with REM. I want that 300 point box for Brigada though...
  13. not quite. Everything is getting hidden so stuff like HMG is just not getting fired anyways (unless I drop it). The concequence of that is that people haven't been taking long range nutcrackers except what's needed for TR bots. Although there is plenty of impetuous smoke. I talk down Mutts because they are exaggerated but they are a pain. Having a hard time though because I'm getting 1-2 regular (non-F2F) AROs a game by using him hard in the late game and just missing the 16 for a handful of games now. Had one guy "sacrifice" himself to kill a Wildcat with his BSG. Intruder missed the 13 (under 16"). Next order he shot at Intruder on 6, Intruder missed again and died. Been the pattern for a lot of the games. Anyways they're suppressing and countering units in theory and forcing really bad orders to be spent in front of them. They're working really well until it comes down to actual rolls! People still play around them because they aren't superstitious. Fortunately most of what an Intruder does is before any rolls are made. I think I'm hitting the potential limit I can get out of one right now and I'm curious what I could do with two positions. My meta is just advantaging them more and more over time. It also gives me a good reason to start using more Jaguar links. Frankly I'm wishing I had infiltrated weapons. I still really wish there was a Bandit MSR. I've been using Bandit Combi to get a bit more range though.
  14. Meta getting weird enough I'm considering two Intruder snipers.
  15. What does Nomads have? If you get as specific as you need to be to claim PanO doesn't have anything unique most factions don't have anything.
