I've been playing Dow2: retribution for ever a year know and think I have a good understanding how to play my Tyranids in all game types. (1v1, 2v2, 3v3 points/annihilation) I have a few friends on steam but I'm looking for more players to perfect my strategy(s) aswell some idea partnering for more competitive occasions. I know theirs a dozen players here but anyone interested in joining forces?

Username on steam: Nicolbolas90

Has a motivational picture of. Carnifex eating a tank with the caption " yes, it did just eat that tank"

I am pretty good at rts - as long as it is vs a computer, the story-line play so to say. Against players, I'm really bad.

I'll see if I can add you to the warpshadow group on steam once it's back up.

I'm really bad at pvp in RTS games.

I love the last stand mode though... almost beat the anvil of khorne stage with a group. We got owned on the last wave lol

well, I haven't played in a while, but I remember the original map of the last stand (colliseum? The brown one in any case) had quite a few difficult moments.

Coloseum has the clones anvil of khorne has the champion. But I've beaten both. l divide the tyrants wargear into Tank, ranged, evasive. All Ofcourse depends on ur own play style but always about cooperating with ure partners. How ever I have managed to complete wave 20 with out a single death on khorne.

As for pvp games always focus on melee and speed. Same as tabletops Tyranids are fragile fast and in ure face or they have difficulties.


And just as a side. Note I use the same color scheme on my table tops Tyranids well as my DOW Tyranids

yea, khorne wave 20 is easy. I finish that regularly. Colliseum is where I get trouble, and you really need to coordinate with your team to get the best out of it. In a way, that's why I loved the original with only ork, farseer and marine - you kinda could expect what the other would be bringing and build accordingly - thereby knowing how to support one another.

I can't use the same color scheme on my nids in DOW - they don't make a division between what I paint purple and what I paint blue. So I had to make due to get as close as possible. Yours look rad, Krewl.

I see you've already been added to the warpshadow steam group... man it's been a while since I used that, it's all changed since last time I looked at it (I must admit to my shame that that has indeed been a while)

believe it or not it does feel more balanced but obviously certain armies still over tuned and abuse mechanics. wonder if they will ever make a version much closer to the table top.
