    Noticed an issue today. Angel support platfroms are rather worthless vs legion because their missile defence does not block legoin missile systems. (balance a27d6e1)

    effected units / structures
    • patriot
    • flaktrum-G
    • dominator
    • firebird
    • thor
    • eradicator
    • decimator
    • crossbow
    and maybe more

    I think that the Raider's speed brings good variety, and would prefer it to stay. However, hypothetically, how would you feel about the Raider's turn rate and/or acceleration being slower so it was easier to suprise them? Not saying Raider needs a nerf, but that is the direction I'd argue if a nerf were determined to be needed after a lot more playtesting and feedback.

    Eh. I just hate being forced into one playstyle. I'd honestly just reduce the speed to 1 below that of the fighter so that it's still fast, you just need to somewhat protect your raiders.

    I also hate air spamm and that is the only viable strategy in Pa. That is the same that you are talking about.

    Also, the thing is that you adapt to meta or lose. And if this is the meta either you adapt or don't but I overall see why eloadea decided to put that in. Is a really clever idea to bring and end to the air blob strategy

    I just don't really see this as a solution tbh. It just either makes legion air superior, or forces vanilla to turtle. and vanilla turtles far worse than legion as far as I can tell, meaning that legion will just win...

    This isn't a single shot. It acts very similarly to the aeon czar from supreme commander.

    I mean like in independence day, that it spands the whole city. The explosion spanning half the planet would be awesome, sure many would prefer it over the czar.


    Edit:
    I was wondering, the sea tank as it is able to ram things, why does it move so slow, it should have a fast movement but takes a lot of time to achieve it, you know faster than everything else but with slow acceleration.

    that's exactly how it works :)

    "acceleration": 4,
    "move_speed": 20,

    Nice. There is something strange in it´s movement. Is a little wobbly :p
    Since Titans I don´t know what they did to pathfinding but it got much worse.

    It will take quite a bit of work, so I'd wait until it's done. There is also the problem that a client mod can't shadow server mod files. Which means I will have to find some other workaround.

    When the mod is ready for a public release we will add it to pamm. Some people just managed to find our github early.
