Pros:

Something is better than nothing.
Allows you to get a quicker head start, which is all a F2play eagles player can really hope for.

Cons (sorta):

Has really limited use beyond the first few turns because (1) randomness; (2) overlap with f2p rally all units such as Myrm or Halberd. So if you can’t make the rally 3 count in the early game, it becomes useless quickly.
Is crappy compared to p2w equips, thus exacerbates any existing power imbalance.

In my last fight I was able to kill an enemy Razor Eagle with mine in 2 rounds without having to drop a second blitz unit (neither of the P2W equips would have done this). This allowed me to play Myrm sooner, which in turn boosted my damage output for the entire rest of the match. I also had another match where the +3 allowed my front unit to kill their front unit, and my back row Solis got to ignite a new enemy. So far I’m pretty happy with my “worthless” equipment.

Or, conversely, you could have just played a Scav, had the Scav overwrite the useless 3 rally with 7 rally, and kill the RE like a normal person instead of relying on a rally item to hit your eagle with the 50/50 2nd turn to luck you into killing that enemy RE.

Face it, early on, this is situational at best. Midgame to late game, it is worthless, as by that point RA stuff is usually out, or it will hit something that does no good (an empty opponent lane unit).

The point is, this is not Mark all. It is not suppress all, it isn’t something you would expect after getting a dual t5 the mission before it. But hey fan on, fanboy.

If he plays a non-blitz 2nd unit such as myrm, the rally goes to the eagle 100% of the time … so no 50/50 problem. That was the pt if I’m not mistaken.

Topic: Global Assault: General / My two cents on balance - an open letter

+1 The game is getting unplayable for high-level f2players because of how powerful the new p2w units have been and the lack of new decent f2p units.

not all ppl who flag are literally hitler. so yeah, it’s bad in some cases.

also: I don’t think the threads DF mentioned were locked because they were off-topic or anything (except Tinashes), but because they always devolved into fighting and flaming.

^ Even if the threads get locked, I can unlock them. But I can’t unhide posts hidden by other moderators. So the solution is not to fight or post inflammatory stuff, i.e. stuff that other moderators will remove because they contain obviously objectionable content.

(^my squad)

I don’t think you’ll be able to complete the missions. It’s not a problem about zig-zagging … everyone knows this already, and i have no idea why some top players are still parading this around like some novel tactic.

The real issue is whether you have certain “kill/trade” units (e.g. Solis, Scav Raider, Myrmidon, even eagles) that will allow you to make trade-offs with enemy threat units (primarily the stuff with evade). Once you make those trade-offs, zig-zagging becomes a lot easier because (A) it buys you time, and (B) the battlefield thins out so you won’t have your units bunched up together.

What you then need is stuff with armor such as crusher and hunter to pin down the enemy cover/shrap units to make sure they don’t wander around. Finally, you have your strike stuff finish any remaining stuff off.

Lado – this is end game content so if you don’t have quad f2p units that should be your priority to do and hopefully next event you are better prepared.

I agree. But that’s not a tactic. The mission is easy for ppl like me and crazy and you because we all have end-game f2p units. It has nothing to do with tactics, yet the thread is titled “anti-shrapnel tactics” :/

@ pats,

try to see if dirge, scav combos work as subs for solis etc. It doesn’t matter if they die, because you don’t want your units to bunch up anyway.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [crazy] anti-shrapnel tactics

It’s an easy mission if you have high-end Shrap units yourself … or even just an echidna.

The key is of course: “high-end units”. Easier said than done.

So, how do you win if you don’t have:

1. Great shrap units;
2. Solis;
3. Quad Myrm;
4. Quad Hunter;
5. 3 Quad Eagles

?

p.s. i finished the missions coz i have a great squad, but what about everyone else?

5 Incendiary is countered by no ability. No way to stop it once it starts. No way to cleanse it, reduce damage, and it doesnt expire. Quite the only way to not be affected is to not fight it.

it’s actually countered by suppress or armor or barrier provided they are sufficient to reduce damage dealt. This is the same as saying strike/barrier pair are counters. And I haven’t even touched on the tactical solutions to incendiary.

Topic: Global Assault: General / Limit Duration of Incendiary effect Or make Cleanse to stop it

Instead of running units with a largely useless “cleanse” ability, your priority should be to run units that can kill off your enemy units or pod before your own die from fire.

Even in Tyrant, cleanse was a comparatively weak skill. It was weak even though Tyrant had plenty of nasty debuffs – some of which we don’t even have here at GA, e.g. notably jam/jam all, immobilize, disease etc.

Another thing to consider is that cleanse was useful in Tyrant in conjunction with skills such as refresh and heal, two of which we don’t have here.
