I am not playing that much atm, but I don't think chaos in general needs help. most ships in their roster are a bad pick, but that is true for most fleets.

My best Chaos fleet is 7 x LC fighter spam.

@bosie that list has many hard counters imo. the other hellbringer may work better for LC stealth builds (copying imp mass dauntless builds). I run with 5 carnage and escorts. if you have AP ammo, you are pretty much set. the stun is useful too of course, I don't have any good burst to really exploit it though. others try their luck with slaughters. afaik these four are all chaos ships that are useful atm.

PS: last time I checked, there were two legendary chaos on the ladder. if you play a lot of games and are above average, you can pretty easily farm points atm, because a lot of people are quite inexperienced.

The ladder represents popularity more than power levels. Play lots of games as any faction and you can get legendary even with a weak build if your just a bit better than average joe.

Don't really play at high level, but I think that lances could get a general buff. That is true for every faction, not just chaos. Chaos is the most affected by the current bad state of the lances. (#MakeAcheronsGreatAgain) 😃

Lances could certainly use a damage bump for the massive hit they took to their ability to rend through armor.

I'd be even more on board with a bigger damage bump for lances if their god damn crit rate took a hit. I've about had it with having near full hull ships with no deck, no engines, half their weapons, etc. The ship is fine. Shit just keeps breaking to crit. Lower crit, buff damage rates.

Also everyone wants better lances, but personally I want better missiles. They're on practically every chaos ship, yet really aren't very effective. They should get a much better accuracy at longer ranges, right now they have the same accuracy as macros. Which makes no sense to me. Just take anything past medium range up to 60% as the lowest missile accuracy goes.

One more thing in response to the chart vs favorite faction thing mentioned above. That isn't entirely true. Drukhari are by no means that popular because people like the faction. They sit that high because they've yet to come down from their perch they've been on since the betas. Still evaporating ships with hardly a fight back.

I cannot possibly think that playing as a bunch of communist salesmen (Tau Merchants) is a much more popular pick than psychotic daemon-worshippers (Chaos).

The ladder tells otherwise though, because chaos is one of the most popular races in the 40k universe and so few players make it to the top spots.
