Elite Mod Patch Preview 2.11

By Paranoid Kamikaze - 16th January 2013 - 01:04 AM

Caeltos, Lead Designer for the Elite Mod, has just posted the patch preview notes. Looks like some nice new models for the game, Space Marine players might actually buy the Flamer besides just for gen bashing, some nice price reductions for Chaos, a price reduction on Providence which should lead to some interesting Warlock T3 play, Ork K-nob being more sneaky, Guardsmen also getting a better Flamer as well as some bunker changes, Tyranids being more endless, and the Grey Knight Librarian getting buffed with a melee charge making it harder for units to kite him.

This patch will have a testing-phase due to some changes that were made. Some changes are subject to change, and this is a WORK IN PROGRESS patch which is going to require some to finish. So don’t expect it tomorrow or the day after, it’ll probably be at LEAST a week or two before it goes private, then we’ll have a week or so for testing before it goes public. Alas, it depends on how fast our Lulgrim works! (Give the guy some cred!)

Feel like we’ve missed something? Post it on the TO-DO list thread @DoW2elite website. Be as elaborative as you can when you post, the more constructive criticsm and feedback, the better- I won’t bother reading the simplistic “LOLOL BUFF DAT AND XXX YY XX AND YY” stuff, they serve ultimately no purpose or have any legitimate proposition to bring to the table. Besides, I like a good read!
