Actually, I'd say the Squiggoth is the worst. All it's ever good for is soaking up fire, the guns on it suck. They're the equivalent of too big shootas. The upgraded guns shoota boys get. The chicken (knarloc) is quite good actually. It doesn't seem like much because it doesn't have any huge gun or axe. But trust me, it can fight just as well as the BT or Avatar.

It seems like every time I use Dino he gets clobbered back to the stone age. Even with the full tau force in front of him he still dies after maybe two-four kills. If I could change one relic unit it would be the Taus, I think that the vespid dont have enough units and a massive vespid should have been the relic. Any relic unit you'd replace?

IBean;4198904:rofl:Good one. Honestly, that was genius!![/quote] thank you i wish i was this funny at school. [quote=cihank1;4198936]Guys, I'm kind of a newbie, so excuse my ignorance. That being said, I saw nobody goes for Necrons. Isn't their Restored Monolith rather powerful? Sure, it doesn't have a variety of effects like Avatar, but it's powerful, has high HP, teleports around, and top of all that, it repairs itself like crazy. So why doesn't anybody vote for it? Am I missing sth?

i dont like the monolith because its 10 times slower then molasses and even though it can teleport it takes forever to recharge. plus its weapons suck. yea that big artilary diamond thing can disrtupt infantry but thats about it. anything can own that thing.

The monolith is useless really, any strong meele unit can own it; Ogryns, Possesed, Termies, etc. Being funny in school is easy btw, just don't cross the line to being rude.

However, when cloaked it can be quite an annoyance and it is pretty lethal at disrupting troops and taking out vehicles. But health and speed wise it's the worst hands down, so by far the worst overall. It might say 10000 HP but it gets to about 3000 HP and then it disappears so thats only 7000 HP overall. It takes about a month for it to get to where you want it to go.

In alot of cases I reckon the monolith is best, it's not great against vehicles, but my god does wipe the floor with infantry, and spues out some of it's own infantry.

Yes it's slow and takes a year to get to the otherside of alot of maps even with teleportation but I reckon in an all round case it's probably the best, especially at army slaying, not so much against bases.

(I like the way nobody voted for the knarloc xD and only one vote for the squiggoth, if I had my way about this game it'd be a battlewagon not a giant animal)

Hmm, come to think of it, I think you're right, my good man. When it's surrounded by melee units with high damage-yield, it goes down rather quickly, doesn't it? Oh well, I guess nothing is perfect. But I still think that it's not entirely useless. I won no less than a few games by building that big, ugly, flying-all-by-itself-by-levitation-systems thing.

What the mono needs, and every other relic unit, is something to defend against meele units. If you get termies within distance of the mono or blade which both depend on their long range guns, they're useless. They get pounded to hell and died in less than a minute. Or the Raider, but that one does have it's gun on top which chews through most infantry like nothing. And the others are all meele fighters anyways. BT, Avatar, and the chicken.

Basically, a Relic unit is useless without a supporting army. Relying souly upon a Relic unit to win a battle is like riding a bike with no wheels, not going to get you anywhere. Ok ok, it will win you the battle if the enemy is already dead, or asleep, or sitting down for tea, or if they have only one troop ... etc etc
