Ground Assault Balance

Discussion in 'Ask the Team' started by MoneyTiger, Mar 17, 2017.

  1. I asked this question on twitch but the devs didn't have time to answer/didn't see it so i'm going to post it again here:
    This is asymmetrical balance:
    LSM ground assaults have shields.
    CSM ground assaults have capture keys and melta bombs.
    Ork Slugga boy has melta bombs, capture keys, grenade bundles, and shields.

    Now on the twitch someone said that ork shields aren't as good and CSM have marks, well LSM shields cost a 100 more LP, and orks have their gobs, the gobs don't offer unique buffs, but give a solid statline to work with.
    Why is there such a vast difference between ork slugga boys and the LSM/CSM GAs?

    Thanks in advance!

    Um, Space Marines have access to excellent Power Weapons, the same as Chaos Marines. You also have the benefit of a MUCH more solid shield that blocks ranged fire every time while we often watch gunfire pass through our shields to kill us. Chaos has Marks that give much better bonuses than we get. Also our grenade toss is slow and travels slowly through the air as opposed to your grenades. Also you have higher Armor and a smaller hitbox. Need I go on about the detriments we face as opposed to LSM/CSM? (Seriously, few enough of us even bother with playing a Slugga Boy anymore)

    Dont forget that our grenade toss animation doesn't activate properly at least 50% of the time, and that our Dbash animation buggs out 100% of the time thus causing to have about .5 of a second longer cast time.

    At the risk of looking like a troll, if you are LSM and an ork beats you its because you got out played. You have every advantage over the ork. If you lost its because the ork player was better than you.. (much better usually)

    You have almost no headshot dmg because your head is hidden from almost sides except front, you have bigger health and our shield is the same as yours - bullets get through from time to time. Your animations is impossible to read at the start of the move, so its our luck or your mistakes when you die in duels.

    Asymmetrical balance. Everyone has their strengths/weaknesses and wants everyone nerfed so that we can all enjoy our blandness together.

    Also LSM has an additional 20 armor over TA and Slugga Boy, even though he wears the exact same armor as the former.

    This question seriously.

    OP has clearly never played as an Ork melee class.
