Title: Wasps ... They're crap right?
Post by: Eden4 on March 12, 2011, 10:40:27 pm
Wasps are pretty much just a comical flying unit, they don't hit hard enough for it to be fun, and don't take enough damage either. Discuss.

Wasps and bees were added to the game pretty late on - they started life as just another set of administrators. The bees are great the wasps got nerfed in playtesting and never made it back.

I love wasps and the way they're talking. It's nice to have some behind knights and they're useful for destroying sentinels :)

Reminds me of that mayhem map, where green is all flying units. It's terrible, because green is my favorite color, so when I play fixed, I fail every time.  :-P

A little tip: go to the top of the map as fast as you can. If you're lucky you'll win :)

Oh, right. Have the reds and yellows duke it out, and just hold off blues until the reds or yellows move up. I can see that happening, especially if my bee bombers live to the end.

I'd say the wasps with missile sting are really good units.  Only problem is the stupid AI, which makes them confused and easy picking for plasma reapers.  The Bee Bomber is a great aerial unit and more heavily armored, albeit slow. If intact they can survive an eradicator attack.

TRy either in first person and they're not so crappy :D

I actually won that mayhem map with all flight units since my last post here, so I will agree that they are decent units, given that the AI doesn't mess up. It also helps when they aren't the main offense, but rather support units, or units with backup (distractions  :evil:). The firepower seems to suffice.

One shot from a SAM-battery and the wasp is dead.

The SAMs are death to any flying unit except the APC's which can take quite a beating.

Mate, let me introduce you to something new. It's called -be sure to remember it- school and is a place that makes sure you don't ever write something blatant and outright disgusting like you did, again.

Please. For the sake of the bunnies. And that of the squids, of course.

 :squidly: :squidly: :squidly:

There are extenuating circumstances, though; your username. The Bunny King forgives you because of it.

Now shoo!

ok...then on the topic of wasps, i love them because they have a good ROF and their missle(or plasma) makes up in power with speed.... :wasp:
Bee bombers on the other hand are really good, if u can get to the enemy before being blown out of the sky by a leviathin or Anti-Air battery. :oops: :beebomber:

Wasps are very very useful, especially the ones with the missile launcher. They can dish out tons of destruction but can get punished themselves. Like the reapers, their weapons are powerful, but they can be destroyed easily. They will have the most use on the battlefield if the enemy focuses on troops that can take a beating, such as Knights.

Wasps are great in swarms. The only problem is that when they are in swarms, their range limits them from assisting the ones in the front. Which is why either increasing the range/adding a feature for curving their squad structure would be useful.

Wow.  You guys are not very nice to beginners here and I don't like that.  Havent checked back here in a while, that's one reason why.  Reading my posts here, I realized I should have clarified my remarks insofar as saying "almost as expensive to build as a pod"... that's not what I meant, you can't build a pod I know that... I meant bmu-value wise.  So no one needs to "inform" me that you can't build one.

Bumping a thread from 2011, good job.

Also: Bee Bombers suck, Plasma Wasps are so-so and missle Wasps are one of the strongest units in the game.

They were just some flamers/haters. Act like you don't mind...

Yes, you can build POD. POD is worth 500BMUs and, in fact, building one more is a great deal. Smelter+gives some BMUs+ION+2000HP...

Bumping a thread from 2011, good job.

Ohh, excuse me for that, I was looking for topics I'd previously posted in.  I wasn't bumping anything, just getting into some play in Machines *my #1 fav game* recently.  I hadn't seen that tart reply until the other day.  Forgive me for not looking at the forum for a year; I had a few other things I had to attend to first.

I'll just start a topic of my own then. : - /

If you have a reason to "necro" an old thread, then do it. You just need to make sure what you say is still relevant, and I'd like to point out that what you said was indeed relevant.

Oh, and *bump*
