    TRAILER



    ABOUT LEGION EXPANSION

    Created by the Progenitors in the dying days of the Pro-Com war, the Legion represented humanity's last ditch effort to defeat the Machine Liberation Army (MLA). It failed. When the superweapon was unleashed which disabled the MLA the Legion were not spared. Millenia later they have awoken and seek to win the unwinnable war for which they were created, in memory of their masters.

    A labour of love put together over the course of one-and-a-half years, this expansion introduces over a hundred new units, forming an entirely new faction equal in size and scope of the original. You can use it in multiplayer, or play against the AI in skirmish, both are fully supported.

    The Legion lack the mobility and numbers of the MLA, instead their focus is on raw power. While the enemy are many, the Legion's armour is strong and their guns powerful. They do not focus on early raiding or rapid expansion, rather they prepare themselves to strike a single mighty blow that both begins and ends the battle.

    INSTALLATION

    The Legion Expansion is installed from the Community Mods section of Planetary Annihilation TITANS. Simply search for "Legion" and choose to install the Legion Expansion. All required elements will be installed. AI support is included within the mod, but for enhanced AI try installing the Queller AI as well.

    HOW TO PLAY

    No need to dive in at the deep end, everything you need to know about the Legion Expansion can be found over at eXodus eSports. It details the new units and how to approach playing this faction.

    Hey to all the developers who made this, ******* well done! If I was a millionaire I'd give you all money but I'm poor so all I can do is show my appreciation, Uber should take you guys on and make this official community expansion.

    So a quick question for you @Nicb1 why does the article lack a description for the legion defenses? I think they have enough differences to deserve it's own place

    well, I chose not to write stuff for the more generic defenses like laser turets and stuff because they essentially do the same thing as the vanilla ones. Not much to say of interest about them gameplay wise. e.g. besides "it has a flame effect". Like, there's no special usage for them per say (besides hive and shield) - you just use them normally as you would vanilla static defense.

    The goal for me was to have a concise unit guide about the important differences that you need to know about instead of a complete unit guide that covered everything.

    That's not to say the article can't be unit complete though. Alot of other people chipped in to make it besides myself, and so goals can certainly change or expand. The lore part is definitely fun to do and read. Unit complete is most likely something that will be done in the future either by myself or someone else as an update to the article :).

    tl;dr
    I'm lazy :(

    It should be noted that the Hive is covered.

    Man, those hives are scary, killed 2 of my destroyers.:eek:

    Vulnerable if you can notice and target them fast enough, tho.
