    Q&A

    Q: Can we change appeareances of Elites?
    A: No. They're as-is.

    Q: What's F2P equivalent of possessed marine?
    A: None at this time.

    Q: Green glow around face during Waaagh! makes Kommando or Slugga with sneaking impossible to sneak around. Intended?
    A: Not intended. Overlooked. Will be fixed.

    Q: When will you add lightning claws?
    A: We think claws are cool, but no "when" for now.

    Q: In lore, aspiring sorcerers are psykers, but in game their spells poorly reflect this. Any changes?
    A: Yes. They're supposed to be more spell user then melee, we will buff some of the spells.

    Q: Are you guys planning on looking at destroying both gates in fortress maps being a disadvantage to the attacker and an advantage to the defender?
    A: Yes, in the meta these days ppl aren't destroying the gates because it leaves the lives at the wall and makes players run further. We can look into it.

    Q: Any progress on "slate" system for elites?
    A: No progress lately, been busy on campaigns and heroes. It's still on our mid-to-nearish schedule. People higher up want these things in as well.

    Q: Why don't you use Eldar ranges without cloaks, because they have armor under them?
    A: If you can find any official Games Workshop rangers with no cloaks/robes/skirts, send them to us and we'll ask GW if we can use that version.

    Q: How is the state of improving in-game guild system?
    A: We haven't been working on it lately. It's pretty much the same. Guilds are important to us and we will try to make time for them.

    Q: Combi-weapons still a planned addition?
    A: Not in the near-to-mid term.

    Q: Are scopes for hawks planned? They don't need a model, the scope is in the helmet.
    A: We've talked about that. We like the idea of the scope being in the helmet, or some type of internal range finder. We'll plan something.

    Q: Now that the Eldar elite is going to be the Autarch, are mandiblasters coming?
    A: The Autarch we're using has no mandiblasters. We might do them eventually, but not with this hero.

    Q: Any plans to give Chaos more god-specific cosmetics?
    A: Yes. It's in the plans. We've got some stuff in the works...also more god-themed weapons.

    Q: Any rough estimate when we can expect to see something added to the UI for in-game buffs active on the player?
    A: No rough estimate. It's something we want to do. Don't know when.

    Q: When is Mark 3 Chest / Arms (also legs when that becomes a thing) coming to the other Chaos subs?
    A: No promises on an exact date. It's not that difficult to add it to the Chaos. We'll do it soon.

    Q: Would you consider allowing all LSM weapons to have a lock-on effect to counter netcode issues and Eldar speed?
    A: No.

    Q: New Khorne items are great, but when will MY god get themed items?
    A: You didn't tell us who your god is!

    Q: Can you change the system so we can edit the loadout name of the RTC purchased Ork Kommando?
    A: We don't know, but we will check.

    Q: Will there be more nartheciums?
    A: Maybe.

    Q: When can we expect weapons like the sound cannon?
    A: We don't have any plans for noise marines weapons.

    Q: What unique ability will the Eldar hero have?
    A: That's for a future stream!

    Q: There's a lot of confusion about Elites. Aren't these supposed to be upgrades over Veterans?
    A: They're not supposed to be power-creeping above Veterans, it's supposed to be your basic loadout and the Elite loadout. The store versions are all about cosmetics. They're not supposed to be full upgrades over free versions.

    At least you guys are getting the Elite you wanted... :(

    The Possessed also looks nothing like the promo art that we bought it based on, the helmet, torso, claw, and backpack are all missing. Right now it could be mistaken for a GA with a few daemon cosmetics, not the hideous blend of daemon, machine and astartes its supposed to be.

    Just follow the art, how hard is this jesus. They're clearly capable of making complex and interesting meshes like the daemon pauldrons, the deathlock fist and the alpha legion scales, so it's obviously not beyond their abilities to make the possessed look like the promo art. Why half ass it? I don't understand.

    they prob outsourced most of their Maya work ( im guessing its all done in maya ) with the pile's of money they scrounged out of the founders . and are without any in house skill .. because most of that pile of money they made of the founders was put into making nerfs to the game based on the whining about xx is op YY map is shit , I don't like to die in 1 hit whining.
    so now us new ppl have this pile of shit half assed game because they been catering to entitled SLM's for 3 years who are now all jumping ship because they aren't special anymore.

    that's what i suspect.
  7. Grazzt Grazzt Steam Early Access

    Nice, nice, nice, and ... very nice :D
  8. Plongo Subordinate

    LSM don't even have a Hero in the works by the sound of it :( Gonna be some unhappy sperky maweens!
  9. Asyran Eldritch Arkhona Vanguard

    Nope, they are getting Legion of the Damned Marine.

    The only elite that has a ranged weapon by the looks of it.
  10. Plongo Subordinate

    Oh boy, thats gonna be hard to pull off.. setting the bar a little to high there for cosmetics. Plus those are meant to be tough cookies, so either they would be extremely overpowered, or another $25 i got to save! Looks like everyone can be sad about there hero together lol
