Hey i was playing the new annihilation mod against the standard orks ai. And i have never tried playing as crons vs orks on the regular game. So i tried playing them with SMs at first. And lost. But then i thought "the crons will beat em for sure." So played them with the crons. LOST. I even had 2 fully restored monoliths at one time and the f*cking squiggoth had so much health that even that wouldnt take it! And i could guarantee that they could have won without the squiggoth cause they just brought it in at the end. Ill have a replay for you guys soon. But orks really fuckin piss me off. I dont no if its just that i suck or something but id really like to hear some comments of yours on the orks.
When orks swarm they swarm but when you have mods like annihilation and path of furreto the ai spams our good units..so i wouldnt be to supprised you lost and restored monoliths are pretty weak when untis get into close combat with it.
I didn't make it!
I have this friend, he's a good orc player. i just realised something, no mather how i attack with necrons, if i have like 30/20 in squad cap (ressurected some felleas) and 17/20 in veichle cap... there is no way to beat him. :S
he always rapes my entire monolith backed up, ressurect-able elite necron warrior army with 2 flayed ones squads, 1 pariah squad, 2 lesser necron lords, heavy destroyers etc.
i think the orcs have been terribly nerfed.
I don't think the Orks are too powerful, its just that the necrons are sort of weak. and Talisac is right, when you don't worry about caps, and have money galore, it makes sense not to make, say, wartrakks, in favour of stolen leman russes.
i think not so much tht orks were nerfed that they made necrons real fuckin strong. I actually think they made orks better but in the wrong way... after being upgraded, the basic shoota boyz do twice as much damage than a spacemrine with a bolter! an dthen they added flashgitz... but i just think orks should be best at what they were made more: up close and fuckin personal.
Dosent mean they are stronger, just means mods buff sertant things up, thing about it fact wise.
no, i just was trying to get the point across that they should have made them close-combaty, makeing them shooty makes no sense. since when were orks better at shooting than space marines?
Yeah i know , if u read fluff it says the orks charge the enemy with axes held high and shit like that, in tt orks are more bashy ya so i say WTF RELIC
an dthen they added flashgitz...
Its really annoying. A flash Gitz squad could probably do more damage to infantry than a SM squad full with Heavy Bolters. And Orks do shoot on their way to chop things up, just not much.
but a shooty tt ork army pwns everything. shoots boys en masse are much better than sluggas in tt
