Quoting MayallCommunion, reply 138Not jumping back the the replay, you put me in a scenario where "if I killed the guardians I win". First off I have no idea what will happen if I kill the guardians. That guardians just got heavily fed by LRFs is something I know. As for a smaller add on its not mumbling if it is relevant. You are as I said putting myself into a position where I am put into a position of self defeat and that is unfair an stupid and you know it.
Im not going to bother finishing because it is late and I am tired. And i will give a much mroe thought out respond tomorrow.
You do that. Think of a better way for my scenario to loose--you don't make sense by saying the guardians just got heavily fed by lrf... your titan you mean-but your confused, the titan has no guardians, its a level 1 titan, and emp is disabling all kinds of things around its 4500km range.
Don't worry ill be here to discuss how i could loose tommorow.
baha, yes I meant Titan.
Look riddle the whole thing comes down to in the situation I was in I was severely ahead of my opponent and he produced guardians and the entire thing turned 180(Pretty much after two of them were produced.). The whole thing comes down to he had the eradica, one of the best fleet wiping titans in game. There is no way I could produce enough LRF to deal with the 15 guardians he was producing, the same goes for LightCarriers. I did not have an akkan at the time because you are asking that I had to open with the akkan(Which is not standard for the offensive position, colonizers are generally for eco).
To be honest it all comes down to if a TEC player(No longer referring to the replay) can come from a clear position that he was winning the game, and all the Advent has to do is buy guardians and stall with repulsion for their titan to come out. And then have it 180, even though the TEC player CLEARLY has the advantage. There is something imbalanced about this ability. It does not matter that Javelis can reach guardians(This has been discussed to death the Javelis is a poor unit now), it does not matter that percheons can bomber spam them(Also discussed to death). It comes down to one unit should not have that much of an impact through one ability, one hoshiko cannot turn the tide of battle, one celio cannot turn the tide of battle, one domina cannot turn the tide of battle(Although that anti-disable is powerful), the overseer does not turn the tide of battle, Distortion Field field does but we all know that ability is bullshit(But this thread is not about this ability).
No matter what there may be a counter to the "guardian spam" it does not mean it is a good one, and as said before one unit, even a pair should not change the tide of battle. They are not capital ships, they are support ships.
