Re: Knalgan vs Loyalists

Hi Krogen, I don't have a ton of experience with the matchup, but I guess I'm an instinctive arguer, ha. It seems to me like while it's true that the Knalgans can't really attack well, Loyalists will have problems there too if the Knalgans play it right. While it's true that Loyalists can break Knal...

Loyalists vs Northerners --- Mass Spearmen? Really?

I'll be up front and say I'm not a great Loyalist player---I only recently picked them up. So I looked around on the forums and How To Play guide, and the prevailing advice is mass spearmen. However, messing around vs the AI, I don't find myself very convinced that mass spearmen is really that great...

Re: Spearmen Balance

Your somewhat burner focused counter to spearmen is a surprising one to me. Burners are so vulnerable to reprisal and so cost ineffective at damage. Spearmen are so cost effective in absorbing damage and also dealing it to break through a defender and access the burner... and they even have a small...

Re: Spearmen Balance

You know how it is. Someone is wrong on the internet. Spearmens' crappy mobility can't be left out of the discussion. Yes, there are a lot of things they will faceroll if you fight them head on. They have a spear pointed in that direction! Why would you walk into the pointy end? This will focus on d...

Re: What user-made factions do you most like?

CHAOS. True to its name, this faction throws a normal game into disarray. Its units have so much offensive potential that you can break just about any position---but its units have an extremely propensity for dying, as well. On the whole, I think they're quite balanced, and would love for them to be...
