The Adrianna's Butcher of Meanies loadout does the following: // Technological Merits // - // SXX and requisites unlocked // Subcommanders: 1 // Direct build of bot fabbers and orbital launcher. // // Technological Flaws // - // No Navy // 1 Slot The objective here is not a cheat loadout, but rather an easy to use, ultimately versatile, and fully balanced loadout. I want it to feel like something that would be right at home with the other stock loadouts. The direct build of bots to me skips a superfluous middle man. I think direct build of them is fair for a variety of reasons and what, if any, advantage is granted is offset by the credit given and used by other loadouts. Especially the bacon commander, which in my opinion is a bit of a cheat loadout, not that I'm judging. Some comments on balance: Here are prices paid in exchange for concessions gained in the stock loadouts. This is a partial reference to explore my justification for the contention that ABM is not a cheat loadout by any means. http://pamatches.com/wiki/game-types/galactic-war/galactic-war-commander-loadouts/ Orbital/Bot/Air/Vehicle Commanders Pay: Nothing Get: Basic Tech Tree X or a full tech tree in the case of orbital. General Commander Pay: Start tree + 1 slot Get: 2 Subcommanders Artillery Commander Pay: Nothing Get: All artillery units. It also enables the Commander to build radar, double barreled turrets and basic artillery turrets. Storage Commander Pay: Flame tanks Get: Storage tech Assault Commander Pay: Basic defenses. Get: All basic factories and units. Bacon Commander Pay: 2 Slots Get: Rate of fire x2, Uber Cannon energy cost -75%, Health x2, Walk speed x3 So given the trends above, when building my own loadout I feel that gifting a partial tree direct build (bot), a specific unit (SXX and requisites), and a subcommander seems completely fair. After that point additions need to be paid for with flaws, which I did with two slots, just in case. Judging from the general commander, 1 sub commander is worth around half a tree and half a slot. Slots seem to be the most high density currency for purposes of balance trading given that the bacon commander is like a one unit zerg rush versus any other type of commander. So paying 2 seems to be more than enough to cover what advantages I granted directly into the loadout and indirectly via the additional mods. Trivia: The "merits and flaws" language is a direct nod to original vampire the masquerade. This loadout has a minimal narrative behind it. Adri's Butchers are all that's left of a cult dedicated to the annihilation of pain and the direct ascension of all life to equality with their goddess. (Basically I really love my girlfriend and I wanted to dedicate this to her, hence the name and flavor text.) The reason I used the word "meanies" is because I personally find it annoying that there is no way to call someone mean without it sounding either childish, like a compliment, or a body part or function. I'm implying a point in the future where the word meanie is the lowest most vile thing someone can be. Equivalent to heretic or blasphemer in ultra religious eras. P.S. Thank you trialq, cptconundrum, SXX, and wondible for all your help. Note: If you do not acquire a basic technology card, the support AI will do nothing. I consider this an AI bug. It should attempt to build whatever it can, not hang when some prerecorded script item is missing.
