DoW 2 is a barren wasteland. All but the most hardcore players still play that game and i wouldnt say its much. I never see a surge in players because of DoW 2 replays and these guys get 10s of thousands of views which is great. But when i jump in the lobby or check steam charts the game barely breaks into 800 on weekends. WHERE ARE THE PLAYERS?
I do agree though that Coverage could help BFGA 2 out because its still a fairly new game where DOW 2 isnt.
@beernchips Well I find the idea behind demonic infestation good and in tune with chaos lore. It just needs to put Tonnage in consideration for it to be useful for some fleets cause applying mass assault actions on everything in ID range can amount to alot of crits.
Id Rather see Demonic infestation apply boardings by Tonnage and balance it around that.
demon lance disabeling only 1 turret for 5 seconds isnt enough imo Its also really hard to combo that cause you have to time your lances focused fire on 1 ship. Just to shut down 5 turrets.
I find Dark Eldar Ships do alot of Ranged Damage to crew and morale. I seen one guy just slowly wittle away at my crew and morale HP while playing it safe. But it takes forever and doesnt leave for favorable out come cause you cant really harrass and cap at the same time with that and i was playing chaos so its probably alot harder to do against other factions.
@jellyfoosh UUUUH.... There seems to be something wrong with Space Marines and a crap ton of Frigs engaging strike cruisers in a ram. It keeps crashing and i had the same issue again. I think if you guys do some experimenting it seems to be pretty easy to replicate. I had 8 infidels. i targeted a single strike cruiser and went for a Ram and poof Fatal crash error. Happened today and yesterday. It might happen when there is massive ship loss within a short period of time.
I been experimenting with this perk. It is best used with infidels or iconoclasts and i jokingly named my build for this "Heretical Torpedoes". It seems to do really well vs factions with low Troop Count like eldar and mechanicus maybe even tau. but not so good vs SM Nids and orks. The whole idea is to find the highest concentration of enemy ships in a blob and use your Escorts like Boarding torpedos on steroids. 8 Escorts will destribute 8 boarding actions amongst the entire fleet. That is pretty huge and can really do a number. After your escorts expire you run in with carnagers or slaughters and mop up whats left and continue boarding. Have had mixed success but its a fun little build. The only problem i have with demonic infestation that its a one trick pony perk. I think it needs to do some additional effects or a tweak for it to see any wider use. In its current state it is to weak to use in a serious fleet cause it relies on your ships to die to have any effect and is only good with fodder ships. Perhaps the perk should take tonnage into consideration. Escort 1 boarding action, Light Cruisers 2 Boarding Action, Cruisers 3 Boarding Actions on Death etc.
