Best Race?

Postby Nosmage » 29 Aug 2004, 06:32

I was just wondering what you guys thought was the best race? My favorite so far is the SM, but I have to admit that I haven't given the others a fair try.

i cant vote for a best race as i play them all and not bothered which one i am as they each have there good points and bad and to me roughly play the same anyway :/.

IMHO its how u like to play as to what race u want to be.

rushers = orcs and eldar
end gamers = chaos
all rounders = space marines

soon u can read more info on this game at the monkehs website :P

Personally I think chaos are the best for just pure ownage. But I like being the Orks for comedy value. *chants "Orks orks orks orks, orks orks orks orks"*

Space Marines are good, but the moment the oppenent realised that the best way to counter then is artilery, or simply making you move your troops about, you're screwed. Royally.

Personally, having given each race a good run out (on the beta tutorial) I prolly prefer Choas - simply coz they get the cool units - and theres nothing like giving the opponent the fright of their lives as umpteen defilers and a bloodthirster charge into battle!

Having said that, I always will play SM - simple beause I want to... :P

The problem with playing as space marines I find is that they have no ultimate unit in battle, I enjoy being able to run millions of squads into a base and thne flying a bloodthirster into their back door or something! :D

Alchy found out what its like to have blood thirsters in your base last night lol... 2 of the things 0.o and my army through his base!

You see alchy kind of defended very well... so well infact that he locked his own units in his own base, so i sent everything i had at his base, got owned, he attacked me back and my turrets took em all out :/ ( i had anywhere between 50-100 turrets infront of my base spread across 7 strategic points) lol!

I then countered and over run his base eventually with permanent re-inforcements coming in (Thx Cardiff For the right click thing!)

But yea you cant do that with the SM's you just have to hope a land raider can kill em when they have rubbish attack power and dont last very long against enough rocket infantry!
