why does shroud matter? you realise shroud+running silent doesnt make them have "super" stealth right? its still the same mechanic, all shroud means is that every ship starts in stealth, and can regain it if they mvoe through gas/asteroids, running silent is different in that as soon as you leave scanning range, or lose marked status from escorts, you go back into stealth.
Thats why light cruisers are still expensive even with their low end dps, because running silent is valuable, it is however available to every light cruiser for every faction the eldar are no different.
I don’t see the problem with that? How does having shroud make running silent over powered? It is redundant even, if they are running silent they are cloaked all the time, if they only have shroud they are cloaked until you see them. Not much of a problem.
atleast you can crit deck on those
they are annoying to fight but counterable
they have a weakness as they dont have several layers
just like you can easily crit engines on those LCs and catch them, corsairs have sails
And your point is? Running silent is a significantly better stealth ability than shroud, and taking out decks forces them to go to gas clouds which limits their advantages. It hardly matters, if a ship is in running silent stance they aren’t running reload or other stances which means less DPS.This isn’t a problem, and is definitely not OP
