View Full Version : Extended tier1, tier2 bypassed trend
2nd Jul 09, 10:24 PM
Tier2 is being bypassed, tanks are now ownage games seem to be comming down to, delay your oppoent while you get to tanks.
Ive won a few matches by enemy hq destruction just because trying to fight tanks with most races tier2 is impossible.
Tanks roll over tacs and asm, and the mass scout spam actually gives you an advantage if you dont do it and just try for power and to protect your power.
anyone else seeing this trend?

I've skipped tier 2 once or twice under the new patch, and with no real regrets.
It might help if the Tier 2 upgrade were as expensive as it is now, but faster to research, and the Tier 3 upgrade were make a little pricier and take significantly longer.

I think it would be good for the game if they now worked on extending T2 the way they did T1, but made T3 still worth researching for all the races.
Pretty much every tier should be extended the way T1 is.

Well I dont think that all of them should take the same lenght, theres point in teching faster than your opponent, it should give you at least SOME advantage.

I absolutely agree. What I meant by extending all the tiers was actually geared in that direction.
What I had in mind was that every tier upgrade should be really costly, but the units/upgrades it unlocked would really make the difference in the techer's favor.

I've had 3 games so far where the Tier 3 upgrade has been in the build cue while Tier 2 researches.
I can't think of any reason to stop off in T2 unless I'm losing horribly and need to spend the resources to rebuild my army. The large T1 armies are still around and get all their upgrades as you pass on by, and all the new buffed end game units units come out in T3, which are miles better than the gap filler T2 units.

So you think a simple major raise in T3 cost and build time would suffice?
Could be, with maybe some minor tweaks to some units to fit.
