Wasps ... They're crap right?
« 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.
Ask me anything about Machines and I'll try to answer! I don't have the source code anymore. No idea what happened to it...

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.

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