After finally deciding to try out Vas rebels in MP after only playing TR and AR, omfg how do they think they could possibly come to balance jumping orkies, phase stabalisers and that STILL ridiculous "leach all ur fleets HP and anti-matter and put it into my fleet" titan.
I think this was done from more of a LORE perspective and not from a competitive MP standpoint.
In other words, "Advanced aliens wtfpwn the puny humans and their half breed advent mutants"
Heres how u balance jumping orkies, u stop them from jumping OR buff other races SBs by a factor of 5 (and more if u dont increase their range aswell... altho a TEC loyal double SB turtle is bad enough already... increase bomber dmg too? no... got it! those currently USELESS anti structure cruisers need either a buff or a cost decrease).
letting orkulus rex move around a gravity well is badassed as it is (THAT should be the T8 upgrade based on the current comparitive strengths of the SBs)
Heres how u nerf phase stabalisers, u remove them OR... no just remove them, jesus that shit is easy street when u dont need to worry about where ur fleet is in regards to defending ur empire, never having to divide ur forces allowing you to easily fight on two fronts with ur whole fleet AND you can jump behind enemy lines with kostura... many LOLs were achieved with this ridiculousness in the last game
Heres how u balance rebel titan, just swap that ability that lets it restore AM and HP to ur surrounding fleet with something else thats nearly useless (like an ability that lets it stay alive for a minute or so longer when the titan dies)... but KEEP nano-leach as on its own (without the fleet restore ability) AFTER last patch, it seems pretty balanced, indeed the titan is doomed without it.
also corvettes may have been nerfed a little too much? not sure yet but i find i dont use em anymore.
Of course people can claim there may be ways around these unbalances (just use caps or another titan to kill vas rebel titan geez wat r u guys dumb?!) well... thats probably one of the more ignorant responses with the author obviously assuming that the titan is gona be all alone all the time without a cap killing support fleet... even some of the better solutions like a microed bomber spam to kill orky (running carriers in circles away from orky to kill it)... really? That doesnt make it balanced does it? No, It does not good sir.
