There is no reason to use Doomflayers when you have Rat Ogres, Doomflayers need to be buffed

Rat ogres do literally the same job as doomflayers now but better, no reason to use doomflayers when rat ogres have more mass, more charge damage and, more speed and more models.

Soon

    I mean sure, if you ignore the armor, anti infantry bonus, or chariot like properties than they are basically the same unit!!!

    I still think they too resilient to ranged fire currently but overall they do feel balanced, so i dont feel any changes are needed.

    "more speed"?

    Doom flayers 72 vs 60

    And armor and tiny hit boxes so less vulnerable to ranged fire.

    In the skaven roster I definitely woudln't discount 12 speed. And not getting shot at and having better leadership make you more robust as well.

    Of course you could ask why do doom flayers when you have doomwheels, but there the answer is simple enough -- much better resistence to ranged weapons.

    when all you had to prepare for was rat ogres you could pretty much hard counter them with a bunch of crossbows/archers. not so doomflayers with high armour and small hit boxes.

    yes, i think CA should make Doomflayers a flying unit and rename it to Doomflyers

    p.s. nerf elves, they are too strong


    am i right, angry_rat_lover?

    AM I?

    Hi Ephraim! But seriously I think doom flayers are fine since the nerf, they were pretty busted before. They are significantly better than rat ogres vs infantry (esp spears) and much less vulnerable to missiles.

    Not me, it's a trollsona sock-puppet meant to make fun of me, just look into that "poster's" history which contains mock-exagerrations of some of my arguments.

    @Canuovea

    This is clearly another example of 4Chan levels of forum degeneration. It can't be kosher to create alt-accounts for the sole purpose of mocking other posters. If it is and this is allowed to stand, people will make more of these alt-accounts to disrupt the board.
