Greetings to everyone i'm new to this forum and i hope to exchange our opinions about this awesome game.
I'm sure everyone who is a veteran IG player knows all these so he doesn't have to read my post but it is a good opportunity for a new DOW player to learn about the power of the Imperial Guard. Obviously i can't descripe in one post all the potential of the IG here are some that i just remember most of them from personal experience. If you have some arguments or you want to make some comments feel free to answer i would appreciate that.
Personally i believe IG is a support race nothing more nothing less.I recommend to play them only in 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 games(4v4 is even better) and never 1v1(always in multiplayer games of course) and in large maps to minimize the chances to get rushed. As any other race they have many ways to respond depending the situation. Personally i try to get vehicles as soon as possible to support my units(they get upgrates to their weaponry and their health-morale but still they can easily be beaten if they don't have vehicle support). Always get a baneblade and at least one leman rush tank and 3 bassilisks or 2 leman rush tanks and 2 bassilisks(it depends in the situation what vehicle types you'll get but i mostly pick these 2 ways to develop my vehicle army). Basilisks ensure victory in most battles because of the earthsaker round ability by far the best way to spend your resources to secure victory. Always keep in mind to use the vindicare as an artilery spotter, even better if you scan the enemy base you don't need him even if you want to bombard an Eldar base after the scan you know where the buildings are and even better the fog of war doesn't hide the building locations(poor Eldar scan rules, in other means earthsaker doesn't miss if you use it without a spotter just scan the base infiltration won't save him even if the scan effect is over). Finally land raiders monoliths and any other mechanic relic units are useless if you use the curce of the machine ability the Psycker has. Never underestimate Psyckers(Commisars, Priests, Assasins), i played against a SM using the World Of The Emperor ability his Librarian has vs 6 heavy weapon team(upgrated with autocannons) i had 6 Psyckers that moment(my leader had 3 Psyckers and a Priest) and i killed him with Strip Soul, most funny is that he was attached to a terminator squad so another conclusion is that SS ability damages THE TARGET YOU GET NO MATTER IF THAT TARGET IS ATTACHED TO A SQUAD(after that obviously his army was beaten). Grenades and plasma guns are good to be used depending on what race you're facing. I use to compine them but if i have Necrons to face i use only plasma and i must tell you i enjoy reaping them just like that, they die just like a piece of paper.
Conclusion:Surely i hope i convinced you that IG race is not underpowered quite the opposite is a very strong race(not unbeatable), a SUPPORT RACE to be more specific they support the others from guardsmen to baneblade.
And finally some retorical questions to all IG players. Don't you agree that if a map doesn't have thermoplasma generator we have a huge power resource problem(i need a second base to solve this problem)? Is it fair that we have to be focused all the time and we can't even drink a glass of water during a game when at the same time a Chaos player for example can smoke a sigaret? Finally don't you feel satisfied when you win a battle enjoying the moment like the first time?
Hi all I'm newbie here and came to this topic on forums.filefront.com from yahoo search engine. I really think this topic on forums.filefront.com is really interesting. I'm work on personal cash loans related work and I have a blog which giving out info about personal loans Now I don't have to worry about the unexpected bill getting paid. No personal questions, bad credit accepted, and the money is directly deposited into your checking account. I would suggest this service to anyone who needs quick, fast payday loans. A payday loan online (also called a paycheck advance) is a small, short-term loan that is intended to cover a borrower's expenses until his or her next payday. The loans are also sometimes referred to as cash advances, though that term can also refer to cash provided against a prearranged line of credit such as a credit card. I really hope that everyone here don't need some unexpected cash, but if any emergency appears, do not hesitate to use these services! thanks.
