If you had any idea of how to play this game, Scrin is so hard to win against NOD or GDI, so stop crying because you can't stop Devourer spam.

Because if you make it to Tier3, you've almost won the match already.

once you get used to scrin... the imbalance on the econ for scrin is so ridiculous, plus they have uncrushable harvs that carry more tib, the ability to regen a field.... and ...

t59 is bullshit.

Growth Accelerators are absolute shit because they die when you look at them. And Ichor Seed = Tib Seed, so that doesn't matter too much as well.

Scrin suck for the sole reason of half the population of KW play as T-59 who are practically impossible to beat as vscrin, the only advantage vscrin have over trav is their ability to defeat t2 tank pushes with devourers but in a t-59 game it's autoloss.

vScrin would be alright and they are. IMO they just need some better t-1 and t-2 anti inf capabilities and even at t3 they don't have any real good unit to kill a prodigy or fast inf spam like T59 makes.

I do think they are inferior to R-17 and t-59 especially. Basically as vScrin the only unique advantages you get are are Shielded Devastators and PACs but the PACs still suck and Devastators with shields still die pretty quickly and Devastators are situational at best.

You're also able to make devourer tanks and still get a teleporting Hexa. But basically you get a watered down version of the Prodigy and Reapod as vScrin. Your gunwalkers get shields but are still crap compared to shardwalkers.

If you're a person that loves to use dev tanks but feel you can't live without a teleporting Hexa either then vScrin is the faction for you.

If you want better. more cost effective tripods , awesome verisons of gunwalkers that can moe down infantry even at t3 , and can live without a teleporting hexa , go Reaper.

If you want to be lame and just do BS , go t59 tongue.gif

thats true it is but i like cause of there brute force and that most noobs give up when they see a hexapod, but it is really hard to play, we hav crap teir1 units and i dont think we hav any stealth so we hav to depend on brute force

We don't have crap tier 1 units. Even watch this replay. But you are right about the stealth I think besides engys.

Scrin are good with money so try to get around 5~7 harvs depending on the map.
At the start get 1 or 2 seekers incase of pit/bike rush.
expand after 2nd ref depending on the map.
If your going for a rush then spam something quick OR tech to tier 3 and spam tripods.
If the enemy is turtling then just wait it out since he'll run out of money eventually OR overwhelm his defences.
And depending on the map, get 1 or 2 spikes really quick.
Thats all I could think of for now =p
Heres Another Replay to show you what I mean.

First off, I've gotta say that it's very disrespectful to dis T-59 players, especially as I am one. I won't go beyond that, but please don't I don't like it. ; _ ;

Back on topic.

To answer your first question, people play as scrin because it is flat out fun. I love it, and that's why. People say we are OP? I say not. Everyone has three basic factions. Vanilla, Brute Force, and Finess. We all know what v is, brute force is R-17, and finesse is T-59. We all have different strengths and weaknesses. Patches can turn the tides at any moment. T-59 was once the worst faction because of terrible nerfs. Hopefully, EA will eventually be able to have the perfect balance between factions. Do I believe that Scrin is OP? No. Do I believe ANY faction is OP? Mmm, not really. It may be more difficult to beat a specific faction with another, but that does not in any way mean they are overpowered.

Well, that's just my two cents. Sorry if I offended anyone in any way. Dunno how though. O.o

I remember yuri's revenge from ra2 and Yuri was my favorite team because of mind control


Well Trav also has mind control

Prodigy can just run in and swoop a structure and then you can sell it for quick easy money. Especially if the enemy doesnt expect it. Cultists can just take over tier 3 units and attack which make the cultists cost effective and yea =p.

Trav also gets aircraft and takes more skill than vscrin and such, I just switch off.

Another good tactic for the Prodigy is to capture your opponents MCV.

Run in, grab it, teleport out. Easy.


Whoops, off topic. lol.
