I've recently been playing a lot of SM and I feel I have a pretty good grasp of them. Since I felt comfortable, I decided to try coming up with own strategies and build orders - specifically one were SM Scouts play a major role.
Just posting this to hear people's opinions on Scouts, their weapon options and how they could be used outside their basic capping duties. I have tried massed Plasma Scouts in t2 and its pretty fun, but hard to get to that point as you may imagine. I have only now realised that their plasma gun isn't affected by target finder upgrades, anyone know why?
This is just for fun really, but can anyone think of a semi-viable BO/strategy which utilises Scouts heavily? I can win with Tac Mass and ASM harass so now I want to see if I can find a way to win with scouts as a significant part of the force, be they equipped with flamers, plasma guns or sniper rifles. Although now that I know that their plasma guns become obsolete immediately, I can't see what the point of having them is.
Sniper training and Infiltration reseacrh are both fairly costly in early t1/t2 so its quite a challenge to figure out a BO where I can have fully upgraded scouts in t2 without completley crippling myself.
