LSM suffer from being both a completly mute community and a too loud one. We complain heavily, but we don't socialize with our own people. I play LSM in majority, and I spend times in Chaos, Orks and Eldars as well, I'm a LSM player and at first, I thought we weren't very balanced. As chaos, I won so many matches in a row compared to my time as a LSM, as an ork I did so many kill compared to my time as a LSM, as an eldar I've never been that killy in melee compared to my time as a LSM. So obviously, despite my hundred of hours in the game, I assumed we were not enough powerful compared to the others. But during one of my battle, by playing smartly with my tactical I managed a series of 6 kills on the Eldar at the beginning of the game while they were all rushing at me in a very restricted area, and with only a few scratches on me. I was shocked that things have gone that smoothly. We are not nerfed, we just have to play differently. Chaos, Orks and Eldars win a lot because their community is strong, they stand together, they adapt together. I agree that Eldar are not in their place in that game, if we got an open world, they would be totally awesome to play with and against, but as today, they are fighting for objectives and gamemodes that are totally out of context for them. Why would Eldars defend a fortress at the price of 200 hundreds of them ? Why would they do a frontline war against us on a 3 points map ? They are mawing us down despite having less damage (38 for the bolter, 20 for the catapult. 21 for the shuriken canon, 38 for the heavy bolter) and despite us having their worst nightmare, the grav gun. Both those 3 races have what we don't try to have outside of guilds, a community that work together. No wonder we got steamroll that fast on most games. That's the opposite of what we are asking, nerf the other factions isn't a thing that will help us, we got shitloads of crazy tools, but yet we cry for too much attention while our enemies receive none from the dev team. LSM need nothing more, other factions everything else. If the team is permamently on us, how can we expect the balancing for eldar to happen without make them completly useless ? How can we expect more to make the other factions more enjoyable if we always monopolize them ? Space marine got an arsenal big enough to counter any type of situation and enemy right now, just use your common sense. When playing against Eldar, when you are in an area where falcon can get, just be really careful and look everywhere, don't try to overrun or outsmart them, use long distance weapons against their vehicules instead of grenades. Use the devastator ! In any situation the killing potential of a Devastator with an heavy bolter is astonishing, and it's by playing chaos with an heavy bolter that I finally understood that. You can litteraly maw down everything in front of you, and yet we don't use them as much as Chaos does. And no, the killing potential of Havoc and Devastator is the same, I didn't had a damage boost on myself. Use the correct weapons to the correct situation. Against some races, some loadout will simply not work, so change it. If you are a melee fighter know that you will never win by charging into a clear fight, you will stay alive much more longer in a messy battlefield, with your enemies occupied with your team mates they will not look behind them. Stop all those threads about how much OP the other are while they are not. Stop complaining about what you don't have and appreciate what you already got, and conquer what is already ours. We are clearly not the OP faction compared to what chaos pawns are saying, but we are definitly not left behind, we are as capable with what we have as the others, organized, we can be the ones who does the steamroll, the glorious imperial steamroll like in the good old days. That's all we lack, the adaptation and the teamwork our enemies got. It's ironical considering that we are supposed to be the most disciplined, tactical, strategical in the game that no foe should best us in battle. It is not that we are not Space marines, it's that we don't act like Space marine. Fight with fury, but also with honour. We can do as well as the others races if we do the right choices and adapt ourselves ! We can because we are space marines ! WE ARE BATTLE BROTHERS ETERNAL !
