View Full Version : Help with beating CL + Raptors with Eldar
14th Jun 06, 9:04 PM
I've been playing a few 1v1s with a friend (he's Chaos, I'm Eldar) and the last few games, he just makes a CL and rushes me, backing the CL up with as many Raptors as he can afford. I tried making FS + shees, but the seer can't take down the CL and the shees die to the CL and Raptors. I also tried teching to tier 2 and getting CoW, but that takes too long and costs too much (by the time CoW is done, I've used up too much requisition to have enough shees). Is there anything else I can defeat him with? I tried Reapers once too, but Raptors move very quickly and even FoFd Reapers have trouble escaping them.
Thanks in advance.

Raptors are uber expensive. You should have some time to prepare if he is using lots of them. I suggest getting using Psychic storm liberally, and have multiple reaper squads (Guide the one that's not being chased) so he can't tie them up all at once.
Also, upgrade your LPs, and lead the raptors in a circle around the LP. They'll die eventually or back off.

Yeah, reapers, especially with the exarch, make a meal of just about all T1 troops. Just make sure to dance them away from CC troops.
If you get the farseer, psystorm the raptors, and then focus your reapers on them, dancing away if you have to. They should drop pretty quickly. Use mindwar on the CL and focus your reapers on him.
If you do it right (as it has been done many times to me), you should have your FS, and a squad or two of reapers. FOF to his base and start to decap his points.
Raptors are not as strong as ASM, and die to any focused fire, that's why they are usually used for harrassing.

Say hello to 650 hp aspiring champions that come a second later, as all good csm raptor harassers wil learn to do versus an eldar player. Raptors aren't allways the best choice vs eldar, reapermass picking on a raptor squad and using fof to keep away from the lord is key.
Guardian use and practice at it will also help.
