oh good heavens, no
or better yet has anyone ever herd of the the Zahn Consortium  hero transport? lets have that for all are transports.
"attack that? okay"
" okay I'll fire my one laser cannon"
(my favorite) "This is a transport, NOT a Gunship."


Corey two questions on this ship.

1: Is this a new capital ship?
2: will we see this in your Eoth play through?

would the Testers care to enlighten the ignorant what this OP flaw was?
Title: Re: ICW & ASC: Completed Peltast Render
Post by: tlmiller on May 13, 2017, 10:48:20 PM
The main gun was affected by whatever the tech is that allows capital ships to target multiple ships.  So instead of firing 1 super powerful shot, if there was 4+ ships, it would fire 4 super powerful shots, 1 per target.  Multiply that by the fact that I had 2-3 in each fleet, and to say his capital ships were wrecked in a mind numbing short time was an understatement.  The final battle I had 6 Peltasts...it was...brutal.  I honestly felt bad for one fleet I went against of ...god I can't remember his name, but Puerto's teammate.  I had 2 Peltasts along with an acompanying fleet (and 2 Phalanx's, Intego, Syndic) and he had 4 Allegiances + a couple ISD-II's.  2 super blasts to each of 4 caps every 15 seconds, his fleet was smoldering wreck in no time flat.  I was cackling with joy, I probably sounded just like the Emperor.  :)

Not to mention that the first hour of the game was Puerto, Scarecrow and myself struggling to survive against some overly-active Ssi-Ruuvi invasions that confined us all to two planbets, while Miller was pretty much just allowed to expand... It was pretty brutal.

No kidding, I had to build the Bellator with only 4 planets. I think I killed myself (due to large ship upkeep and small economy)  before Corey and Miller killed me. That was definitely the most crazy Sins game I've played in a while.

Yeah it happened. I'm surprised you didn't notice seeing how it says Tester under my name.

So back to the peltast, I like it's name. It's a reference to the Greek soldiers that through javelins to "harass" their enemies.  Though no enemies that had javelins thrown at them would just feel "Harassed".

I didn't even realize where this came from, what a cool background.

All of the new EotH names are Greek-based. Most will probably look pretty basic to anyone who speaks Greek.

Makes sense since most Old Republic/Empire ships are Roman names (Praetor, Venator, Procursator, Procurator, Imperator, Tector, etc.).

And that is why HoI is the best strategy game in 2016 and 17 so far.
Sabaton soundtrack comes with it :D
