Howdy, I just got the game a few days ago, and I have since beaten the single player campaign. I still have a question or two about the game though that I would preferr to know before I started up multiplayer.
The biggest question that I have has to do with upgrades. Let's use the Space Marine Predator as an example. On the list of units that it is effective against, I believe it lists Infantry and Vehicles. So, if I "upgrade" to the laser cannons (or even just one of the three upgrades), Infantry disappears from the list. Does that mean that the tank is not as good against infantry as it once was? There are many units that you can "upgrade", but it is always really an upgrade, or is it just a change in what it's good against? Should you always get these upgrades, or keep what you think will be most useful in whatever situation? Sorry, I know this must seem like a dumb question, but I'm a little vexed with the way this all works (unit effectiveness and such).
Another good example is on the Dreadnaught. The list shows "heavy infantry, infantry, vehicles" (I think that's what it says), but when you upgrade it to have the machine gun, then heavy infantry and vehicles disappear, and it just shows that it's good against infantry. Does that just mean that it's now SPECIFICALLY really good at infantry and not so much against other things with its new gun? or that it is now only good against infantry?
For my Space Marine squads, is it always good to upgrade the weapons? Or are there times when you would actually want them all to just have bolt guns?
Thanks a lot. By the way, I truly love this game. It is easily the best RTS I have ever played in my life, and I haven't had this much fun with a game in a loooong time. I'm looking forward to the online experience.
the new guy,
