Cutter has nothing?SWAT 79 wrote:This x 100. Confused the hell out of me. Cutter has nothing late game and can't produce any leader specific units, so why change that?Saints14 wrote:As a Cutter Main, with the huge Nerf/death to the marine! Why in hell would you NERF the ODSTs??????
What?? Like seriously they were not abused, or couldn't be abused especially now marines are dead. Seriously a sad day
- You can only drop them in
- With a cool down time to drop more
- you get three squads. Three squadsQuote:ODSTs cost increased from 600 to 800, HP slightly decrease
I agreed with a lot of the Banished Buffs, but am really surprised at the Marine nerf as well as the ODST change. Cutter is very weak late game and both of these things will contribute to a bigger discrepancy.
Close air support...
Lets break down ODSTs in terms of resources.
A fully upgraded marine squad costs 150 so 3 cost 450.
An ODST drop cost 800, almost twice the cost. However, ODST has no build time, so you get instant value out of your spent resources. Can be deployed anywhere, so you don't have to worry about travel time from base to wherever you need them, and an instant stun on any units it drops on, charges which are devastating to buildings, and are permanent, so they meld right into your army.
That's a lot of value for 350 additional resources.
They are still damn useful, just more expensive for the value.
