Using siege turrets on a base for "offense" is not a valid argument. cutting 900 resources from an army does not allow you to be able to push through a banished army and shield.iOxygen xYz wrote:You guys are missing the point here. Take away shields from the banished and what do they have that isn't completely useless as a base slot??? Banished turrets die 25% faster than UNSC turrets. Also, the banished don't have a long range artillery tower they can build on multiple base slots. A UNSC base is more offense, as a Banished base is more defense. It's called balance. 1 is meant more for defending, and the other is meant for offense(siege towers). You guys are exaggerating out this whole shield problem, a base with 4 shield generators only has 45% more shielding, which honestly isn't that much of a difference in terms of HP, considering you just used all 4 base slots. Siege turrets have just as much offensive power as shields have defensive power. That is how both sides of the spectrum are balanced. Get over it, it is not a bug nor a glitch, it has been like that since HW1.
And why should the game be balanced around 10 players who quite frankly don't mean anything, except for their place on a non-existent in game leaderboard? You think 343 should cater to 10 players versus the other 10,000? You guys think you're so elite sitting on top of the hierarchy trying to dictate, not influence, policy revolving around the game. Just like some corporate backed bankers trying to influence congress like some lobbyists.
Shield Stacking isn't overpowered. No excuse.
300 for an atriox shield is way more cost effective than a 900 siege turret. because the unsc now does not have 900 to put into their army and 300 to an atriox is basically nothing. or the cost of 1 banshee. or look at it this way, 3 atriox shields = 1 siege turret. in other words the atriox base will not be touched and the unsc base for the same price is going to die. because that siege turret will instantly be countered by a shroud.
don't forget a banished turret can be upgraded to anti everything. unsc cant do that they have to choose 1.
I don't know how you cant grasp that. like why do I have to explain that.
