Personally, I love it. It makes giants support units like they were supposed to be, and causes players to build up a strong economy before getting giants. What are your guy's thoughts?

Hello real players, good bye giant spam.

I like it. Its not killed the giant unit, giants are still super powerful. So, IMO, it is a step in the right direction without over compensating.

I suggest chaos giants should not be hit as hard, as they are not as strong to begin with, but a nerf on the chaos giant is a small price to pay for a nerf on the E giant.

Fixing the tower health bug is also welcome.
I will play test how effective it is now, and 'publish' the results shortly.

Giants were my weakness, but not anymore.

Yes, I dont think anyone (worth listening to) thought it was because of giants that you won.

But, to be frank; many less able players were beating other more able players not by skill but by the use of OP giants. Partiocularly true for us chaos players.
Its true that a top class player like those at the top end of the top 100 would destroy them in turtle mode, but a lot of us still find it hard.

So yes, I too like it.

I like it. Though I haven't played a giant masser in a long time, so I don't know how effective it is lol
Rephrase: I haven't played any match where the game lasted long enough for giants.

I don't know how heavy the implications of this is ...in any case I do like it, it gives the giant growth upgrades some purpose.

It also makes buying those upgrades have strategic implications, etc.

It makes it harder to giant spam, etc ...

Giant spam was really only an issue for the game because not many people would log in for entertainment if they knew all they had to do was make giants. This helps add some of the other units into the mix, and helps make things more situation dependent than just "Problem? Should've spammed more giants".

Well done devs.

I don't care, because I never allowed my opponents to spam giants anyway. Now it forces them to do something else, which actually may give me more of a challenge.

Giant resources cost more in gold/mana and longer wait. First is 200/200 second 400/400.

The only one who I think solidly giant spams (if he doesn't blow his early game on small maps) is fattycow/goat/pig. He just turtles hardcore.

He is the reason Green Hills needs to be banned.

It's a big stage with different techniques but even so, it turns to giants too quickly.

Lol, grass hills is nothing to me, for I siege alot. I only use tower spawn and some ranged units to get rid of their economy. (Just won to a rusher... Rusher sucks... He makes two giant and shadowraths... but he makes them come one by one, which I easily beat him.)

But that's how good fatty is at turtling; he manages to get a few early units/castle archer for the ghost, and a giant for ranged units. He's very good at it, I'll give him that, but you can't win camping...

Just makes games far too long and frustrating.

I played him on gates map (pretty big map IMO, but not as big as grass hills) and he didn't turtle. He did get a few giants, and his defenses was 1 wall (out of the whole game) and 1 castle archer. WHY DIDN'T HE TURTLE AGAINST ME :mad:
