This change to Running Silent would make the beginning of the game so much more intense. Neither side knowing where the other is...trying to find each other with Augur Probes and Recon Beacons...a real Hunt For Red October feel. Just bumping into each other by entering detection range. Oh Crap! Brace For Impact!

A reason to take Improved Augur Array.
A reason to take Emissions Dissipator.

??? why tho
emission dissipators is an essential pick for almost any fleet already
and improved augur already provides so many advantages
it also takes a lot of effort to make a city sized ship silent, even a specially made ravenguard ship designed only for stealth was burning out systems all over the place sneaking for an extended period of time and that required all the marines to turn of their power armor or just the powersourse of those would have given them away

getting a precise read on a ships location is hard
thats why there are just red blips
but there is so much stuff that comes of of those ships that completely hiding every heat signature, every bit of leaking gas, every distortion of gravity is almost impossible

Dont really get what this is trying to be about. But stealth and sneaking already is fairly powerful especially vs eldar.

Dessipator and improved camo is already hella viable. But we wont know what they are gonna do in,terms of upgrades. Could be totally revamped for all we know.

space marine battle barges with permenent lock on.... 100percent crit cannons

or any marine ship with permanent brace
100% armor...
ramming ork battleships to death with a LC xP

To be fair, anything more aggressive than a light breeze is fairly powerful vs Eldar at the moment. 😛

@ashardalon lol didnt think about that... so true tho

Well when i was playing i found that just going with stealth build, bait ships and MoS spam cheeze was insta win most of the time. Im kinda worried the way the eldar faction is and because the game is 2 D makes it difficult for eldar to mesh in the game really imo. But that's for another topic.
