About Wookiees, Ewoks and (?) Polusians
 
I just wanted to hear your opinions about these indigenous units - I have not played in MP much, but I find them to be a bit too powerful for free units;
I managed to take a relatively well protected Endor with a raid fleet of 3 infantry units without losses, using the following tactic: Send the Ewoks in, send the Ewoks in, send the Ewoks in :p - seriously, I find that you can produce an almost constant flow of these small guys, since the planet is relatively small and there are about 15 buildings constantly producing them.
The same goes with Kashyyk - you can defeat anything but a massive invasion Force (or one that is backed up by the Emperor/Vader) just by constantly sending wookiews to the only spawn point. Since for some reason wookies seem to be immune against overrunning, even Tie Maulers aren't an effective counter.
I believe Polusians have already been adressed in another thread - the freezing effect is propably a better weapon than any other rebel unit has.

While I find adding native units and making them more than insignificant cannon fodder is a good idea, since one of the strengths of the rebellion should be support by natives, I believe at least the ones I named are too powerful ATM; I suggest either lowering their damage or (better) double or triple their respawn times and lessen the HP of the spawning buildings - isn't it strange when an Ewok tree house can take more damage than a rebel barracks?

What are your thoughts? :D

And who said taking over the Galaxy would be easy. Polus is probably the toughest nut to crack and I think, because you are attacking a species homeworld, they should have the upper hand in some areas.

If you are the rebels, its great to have them on your side to help defend - especially if your own presence there isnt strong.

You are in a way right - of course it's OK if some planets are harder to take than others. However, I find it to be a bit extreme if some planets are literally untakeable on lower tech levels, and even on higher ones only with the help of heroes and/or heavy losses...

How true. The Rebels had 3 vehicle factories, so that would spawn 12 tanks, plus some platoons of airspeeders and artillery. Combined with the Polisians, I couldn't get out of the starting landong zone, even after two seperate invasions. :(

Anyway, I agree that some natives are way too tough when compared to others. Normal humans do almost nothing against infantry squads, when they should be a threat. I believe it all comes down to the amount of damage attacks deal, seeing how it takes forever for infantry squads to defeat each other.

I rarely have problems with that, but I usually just block the planet and blow it up later.

Um, if you're so upset about the damage and whatnot of natives, why don't you just edit it?

Darth Alec 06-09-2006 06:56 AM

Because some people don't mod there games. I didn't before this one.
