    Well....considering Kraken rounds are pretty exclusive to TS, gonna be kinda hard for loyalist to have them.

    Level 5 Dire avenger main here, never touched Hawk/Shee/Lock and play Reaper with ShuriCan most of the time unless it's Defense.

    A well played Jump trooper or Ork will kick my fairy butt in melee most of the time, though I may be able to escape if I juke right. BolTacs can win too at medium range or if they dont just stand still/move in a straigth line and take my lovediscs to the face; Shootas just flat-out win the DPM race in CQC with their superior toughness.

    I think Bh should first investigate weapons before nerfing classes, it seems very clear to me that Hunter's Mark, Rites of Fire and the CSM incendiary AC are basically completely broken compared to other weapons available.

    Eldar Shee/Lock murder train are also an issue and something should be done about Embolden/Protect stacking.

    I cannot speak for scorpions, but considering that Orks/CSM/LSM melee specialists can very often OHKO me with a back attack, or just hit me once with a DoT weapon and then I die automatically with the Bleed timer just melting away, i'm not sure what people are complaining about if they get ambushed by a dedicated stealth class.

    I believe the main issue with the Reaper Launcher is neither accuracy nor damage, but rather rate of fire, adding more delay between regular starswarm shots might alleviate the issue. On the other hand, PlasCan rapid firing and 100% accurate OHKO sniping is both fairly easy and very potent.

    Other factions also need to be given tools for vehicle control from level 1.

    People need to quit hatewagonning and take an objective look at the factions.

  3. Actually I did fail to mention this in my original reply.

    I really don't think they should nerf Scorpion backstab damage. I haven't played Eldar since Launch either so there's no bias here.

    Zero issue with current backstab damage, Scorpions are kind of rare already these days. Really going to get rare with this nerf.

    Kraken are utilised by loyalist Sternguard veterans. Thousand Sons use Inferno Bolts.

    EDIT:Loyalists also also have an Inferno Bolt, but it works differently.

    They should nerf it only to give him what it should have , the means to fight in plain sight.
