LeaderBots
« on: October 06, 2013, 05:15:59 AM »
Is there any reason why CommandBots and MastermindBots have been de-tankified, while LeaderBots have not?

Or is that "to kill"?  Hmm.

I haven't seen complaints about LeaderBot tankiness :)

Not to say there haven't been any.

Well, I'm complaining about it right now XD

Seriously though, LeaderBots are potentially even more dangerous than MastermindBots. If you've nerfed the latter, I don't see why you shouldn't nerf the former.

I would definitely support nerfing their health as well.

I think it could be dropped a little bit as well.  Their effect isn't as brutal as Mastermind Bots, nor do they grant too much shielding like the Command Bots.  However, they do seem disproportionately tough.

Keep in mind that I am playing on Expert, and LeaderBots are about 5-7 levels above everything else (thank you so much, RNG).  They have ~5.6k HP with ~31 days left.  I am definitely razing some Robot Command Centers, or my only choice will be to VirusBot really strong enemies to get rid of them.  Thankfully, they are not in the final matchup (probably one reason they are so much higher level than anything else--I love killing factories!).
