Cybran TML and MML is ridiculously OP

Postby tatsu » 02 Jul 2015, 19:14

how is it that when you're playing any other race than cybran you see tmd pop up everywhere you're like : "aww shucks, dammit! welp, time to reclaim my tml"

but when you're cybran ....

it's like why is there still AOE on the split missle?
why does every TMD suck at taking them down?

why is it that for every other missile you moved a meter off, it's enough but not cybran missle?

Missile HP of cybran MML should be increased to 2
- 2 hits from TMD to split it and two hits for each split missile to kill it
- Tokyto agrees
- Im switching to Cybran :D

They are effective because Cybran need to win in T2 or they are disadvantaged. If you are Cybran use em, if you are not stay shielded and build Cybran or Aeon TMD and you are good. TMD is effective counter against TML unless it is a bank/farm of them in which case the best thing is to say out of the WEZ of the TML.

This is why faction diversity in FA is so limited... people non-stop whining.

although, one of the original creators of FA did tell me he thought that the ONLY faction diversity should be in the faction-unique units. (eg, all T3 bombers should be clones with different skin, do same damage per bomb, etc)

Honestly, as long as there is only 1 cybran TML it might be not so OP.

It takes only one tmd shot to split missile and defend your t2 mex from destruction
( i lost alot of my mexes in team game recently, i had 1rst tmd in time but second one was not fast enought)

Aeon and uef can also use t2 mobile shield as TMD
With can be even even lure misses on protected target cause enemy will not see TMD or static shield after scouting

Viper is different story... Kinda weird that it has best fire rate in addition to split missile feature.

All tmd needs to be buffed, you don't need to nerf cybran tml and mml. Cybrans in general are fine

Unless we're talking about navy, then all bets are off...

I saw someone somewhere propose the split missiles to move slower than the standard missile - this clearly makes them more counterable.

Perhaps a idea worth testing? It keeps cybran unique but could potentially pull them into line with small incremental tweaks to the sub-missile movement rate.
