Please upload a game playing against a Banished champion using shield stacking while you play as UNSC. Please let us all know of your alt GT so we can learn from your stats if you speak the truth.
Dude I play on a different GT btw so maybe you shouldn't assume stuff. And secondly, I am in champ 1v1 and I have taken down countless other people using sheild strays on their base with ease. It's a matter of seeing what they are doing with the sheilds and countering it just like with everything else in halo wars 2. Its not hard. But hey, maybe I'm just thinking that everyone that played this game has the mind and intelligence for it. I guess I was wrong. The real problem here is that all you complainers just don't want to deal with it period as an aspect of the game and so your solution is to complain about it instead of playing the game better. So calm your baby -Yoink- there bud and just work at getting better!
The banished sheild generators are not op haha. To the people wanting them fixed please stop complaining. If you were to be able to shoot the sheild generator through the sheild how does that physically make sense lol. And for 2 do you know how easy it is to take the sheild down, and if you see another sheild generator building you just destroy it before it goes up! Simple. They trade doing turret damage to you by playing defensively with the shield! So stop complaining about it and just learn your way around it like the rest of us who played the heck out of halo wars 1 and know what op banished sheild really are haha. Go play definitive edition and completely sheild down a covi base. It'll make you so greatful for the sheilds in halo wars 2! Have a nice day!The difference is that the shield generator was a building you needed to build so if you had too many of them then you lost any ability to to make supplies or build the units you need. Also the Halo Wars 1 shields only protected the base so you could take out the defending army and then destroy the base.
It takes around 30 second to destroy a base with all shields and you have to take out and army that sits underneath it. Vultures are the only way to take them down fast and that leaves UNSC at a severe disadvantage.
Base trade is well in favor of the Banished with the shield stacking and the fact that they have a mobile base destroyer (Locust).
Please think about the issue before you post next time. (Also, unless I am mistaken, you have not played a game since March).
It's pretty powerful. I like thinking outside the box so I built a second base(as colony) I put a sensor tower at the back left, two shield towers one at back right and top left, and one cloaking tower top right. At this point I build a foundry in the back space, I build 8 reavers and attach turrets to them, and place four of them on each side. I then build two apex buildings, one at the top left and right. I finally build 4 blister backs, place turrets on them, and place two of them on each side spread out... Now all I have to do is wait, of course I can still be killed after a while of constant fire but I can take out a lot of their army, almost all. It's only meant for defense so I use leader powers to help out my allies.
So yes the shields are powerful, and I wish we could have something like this on the UNSC.
