That's what makes them special!
You heard it here first folks: Team Sirius will have a sensor on the big boy and a Biometric Visor on the girl!
Also I'd put money on the Beta bots looking like "Chappie" or the robots from Elysium when they come out!
And number of units is relevant to this discussion in what particular way ?
Here it comes, the endless moaning about how my faction is so hard done by O-12 so OP Corvus Belli see us a a joke waaaah
But I *can’t* just enjoy the new shinies, I have to complain!
No, I mean... Delta Unit are decent shooters, but barely better than Fusiliers in melee. The Monofilament CCW and Carlos' hype about taking on Sheeskin indicates to me that Cuervo is meant to be decent enough in melee to take Sheeskin on in melee (I might be over-interpreting this and he's actually not going to be better than... let's say Kirpal Singh in melee) which makes as much sense as calling Keisotsu Shinobu Kitsune or Hussein Al-Djabel, Hassassin Ragiks, when there is a unit that is a closer approximation of the special character's abilities available.
Ultimately we'll see the stats
There is only one thing i don't understand...
I get it is only FA L1, but isn't it at least 5 point too cheap?
Who is going to be the first to add a giant Sand Gourd to Sheskiins back?
Morat, AMK and Bioimmunity is roughly the cost of NWI. PH 15 covers BS 14 and BTS 6 upgrades. That leaves Full Auto L1 which is the smallest fraction of Full Auto L2's cost by a large margin if I'm not mistaken. No, I don't think it is 5 points too cheap. I think it has a better allocation of points resources, but I don't think there's a hidden discount.
Morans and Kanren pay swc for their perimeter weapons while gangbuster does not etc
It is better forget about the calculation and balancing formulas, they need to push the new faction so there is a lot of hand-adjusted things
Lots of factors coming into play here. AP CCW, Assault Pistol, FAL2, Higher CC, and Automed and Bioimmunity vs. V:NWI.
Morans might, but Kanren, Pheasant, Xi and Zhanying MadTrap profiles are all 0 SWC
Profiles are pretty much a wash.
APHMG is something like HMG +2 points
Pistol + APCCW is basically equivalent to Heavy pistol + knife
Automedkit is about the same as NWi (yes, really!)
So it looks like Morat + Bioimmunity +1 point equals FA1 making it 2-3 points (for functionally +3BS in active turn)
Looks about right.
Just bring the Zeta - will be more than enough to get to 300!
What is this 'Tohaa' ?
Sounds french to me...
Cube Jäger got one of thoses, too, but barely know which end to point towards the enemy...
The B3 Feuerbach is a badass, actually worth taking over the HMG because of superior long range AROs and probably roughly equivalent firepower on the Active.
He's the only Basilisk level Delta we've seen, he's also Carlos Torres' RPG character so they're going to make him special.
I actually prefer if special characters are quite different from their base units, more Margots and fewer Phteven Raos please (although more of Rao's lovely hair).
The survivors from Area 51 that got to meet the CA personally.
Here's hoping they'll eventually remake Rao and Singh into units that are actually interesting and useful...
It's also B2 EXP in the active turn, on a BS14 unit, that's pretty goddamn scary!
