I had to fix things. so first of all I created a handy dandy weapons guide for humans trying to remove opinion from weapon assessment as much as humanly possible, except when i got to incin.

Thanks, it's really nicely done. The wiki section obviously needs some love, would you be willing to take care of it?

It does indeed, but also takes up alot of time sadly :-/
Also needs some more behind-the-scenes informations imho

I'd be willing to take care of it in the sense that I would like to educate people raising the overall skill level more like a contributor, but I'm willing to go dictator :p.

I did it this way because I have the feeling someone decided to post opinionated and/or intentionally misleading guidance on that wiki (see incin and mmbow). I think I will eventually take it but my focus will be to write an accurate acceptable and up-to-date version then post it on the wiki then allow the community to make changes as the patches come out. this way my work is backed up with me and trolls can be easily thwarted.

so yea I think I'll take it.

and now for an opinion on human units. alright I kept it to the facts but I did get slightly opinionated at siege units, specifically the shooting over terrain stuff with catapults.


btw if there are no problems I can start replacing the text in the actually wiki that is linked at the top of the forum

Human Weapons Guide

"Incinerator part:

- why incinerator is useless part 1
- why incinerator is useless part 2
- part 3
- part 4

...The most useful aspect of the weapon has been considered its ability to cause lag to the enemy via its graphics. "

Now that gave me a good laugh lol

yea it was funny :p but I had to give it some props (it sucks so much)

I was also hoping to give all weapons some creditability. I particularly wanted to dispel the idea of "useless" given to weapons like mortars, launchers, pulse, and chaos bolt. I think these weapons just get used incorrectly.

Mortar and launcher are not useless. :p
Launcher can be used in battle, while both are nearly pure building destroying (especially spires) weapons.

Chaos bolt is "unfinished" by S2 and no one ever touched it since. Entropy isn't usually the first tech line, while surge is better than chaos - so no one really cared due to the nature of pmining until tier2 or 3 anyway. Grin

I know that all weapons have a use (except incin, can't figure that out)

I personally took a few weeks one time and just dedicated myself to only using a particular weapon in a game, got some real tier 3 use out of everything. venom surprised me, I didn't know at the time I could 1 shot nomads with a stalker + venom (it really works).

I can definitely confirm that you can get viable sadist level kills by exclusively using any weapon except incin and hunting bow (btw killing a misted pred with hunting bow had me laughing a good 10 mins one time).

Correct my if i'm wrong, but isn't Incinerator the only weapon that can effectivly shoot through mist? Or am I mistaken?
