Am I the only person here who does not like Gorillas?
« on: December 14, 2006, 01:11:39 pm »
I don't like using Gorillas. Why? They are slow and bulky, they often kill my own units, the missiles take too long to reload, and their torso does not rotate, making them vulnerable to a certain tactic. They are also really expensive, and are in the branch of the research tree that I don't go down.

Other than that, they're great for quickly leveling bases.

I agree with you Aquarillis, i don't like the gorilla too. It's strong tho, but when you just created a raid of little sh*t-grunts  you can end all their lives with just 1 blow.

Oh yea and cheating is for the hax0rs, not for me ;)!

(i don't know anything about modding ^^)

Rofl :idiot:
I agree though, Gorilla's aren't my fave unit.

"So, you've sent a gorilla to attack me have you? Gorilla, meet Judas......"
I still have my original Machines disks and manual....

I'll beat up any gorilla I see!

GrrRrrr!!!

If it's rocketturrets could move the gorilla would be perfect :D (But because the gorilla is a....blob, there is no space for a rotatable turret :P)

I can only imagine how much you hate the joust level... I don't like playing as gorilla's because it seems like you are just wobbling towards the enemy... However, I like having a gorilla or 2 to command to attack, with an army of medium knight guys and wasps and whatnot. They are a strong addition to your team, but I don't like them individually at all. They will be killed with like 15 wrath reapers.

@ Amin
If I remember correctly, rule number 4 is: 'Don't put more than 5 Smilies in your post.'

We don't really need the visual. The

Gorillas are just fun. Put some in a few shark APCs, send in a small squad to take out any air turrets and send them into the enemy base. If nothing else it causes havoc and confusion, at best it levels the base. Either case is good for a laugh. "I did it for the lulz"

Sorry about the pictures... anyway, like I said, I like using gorillas behind other units as heavy-duty backup, but not actually using them individually. Alone, they suck.

1. Rule of war, Melee goes in first, then the ranged and the cavalery from the flanks

(I made that up, but it sure is the truth! :P)

Maybe... only bad thing is, the A.I. for ranged units in Machines isn't too good, and my reapers always kill or severely damage units in front of them.
The tactic would work, if the A.I. was better...

(A.I. mod, maybe)
 :wink:

The units AI can't be edited

I can only edit the AI as a whole, so things like "build building there" or "move units there", just like controlling a player

And the solution is not to use your army as a big bulk of units, if you split 20 reapers up into 5 groups of 4 you can not only attack from all sides, you have a mayor advantage and minimal loss, they don't shoot eachother and when a gorilla smashes you only lose a few units, not all

#1. Too many smilies
#2. That made not much sense.

Machinesrocks, I like your contributing, but you are really starting to annoy me and other people on the forum

You could also simply said: "I don't like the Gorilla cuz it's big and slow and I don't know where it's eye's are! And when the reapers come he's dead!"


See! No smilies but the same message

Btw, Sloik, I've only seen non-smily icons in spam messages, maybe you can clear some up? (please?)

(Non-smily icons:  :wasp: :technician: :ddance: :cowbell: :w-hat: :squidly: :beebomber: :bunny: and the like)
