Yea but then they reduced their cost and food requirement in TFT didnt they?
um they kinda do still own air with flak cannon upg.
the way the upg. works is that EVERYTHING in the "flak cloud" gets damaged by the amount of gyros a second (10 average per gyro a second) so the moment you have like 20 gyros, everything in the "cloud" will take 200 damage a second.
I beg to differ. Massing gyros is fun, always. Wow DM owned 20 gyros with 5 rifles..Hum..Let's dissect this..
1. Gyros should be in greater numbers..
2. Gyros are ment for hit and runs..You see units you run.
3. Anti-air..Killing air? LIES!
Basically anyone that sits gyros in a base to be picked off by rifles/archers then..They disgrace the Art of Gyro.
And Gyros do rule all air..
They have medium armor so they don't get super screwed from siege damage, but they do get screwed by demos.
The cloud radius is probbly very small im guessing, but still that is very good!! I just think that it is too risky to go mass gyros..becoz any anti-air ground units could easily take em out!!! It would be fun to do it 4 fun though...
Gyros rules the most feared air, gargoyles. If that new patch is real then they'll rip Gargs up even more.
um the "cloud is basically the size of a flame strike radius for every 5-10 gyros....so it can get big.
wow that can cause some damage....so let me get this right 200dmg per second in a flame strike radius???
That would be awesome. Gargs and hyppos would fall like anything.. if the damage is 200 per sec.
Lol i think that is too good to be true there has to be a catch or something....or there is probably something wrong with the info.....Btw i 4got do you get this upgrade in tier 2 or tier 3??
u get it in tier 3
btw: WTF BLIZZARD ARE YOU SMOKING MAKING BOMBS TIER3 !!!!!1!!11!
The only catch is that you have to have alot of gyros for it to be useful because keep in mind that blizzard are asshats and made it so that one frost wyrm attack takes out like 4 gyrocopters due to armor and splash damage.
oh and if you think that 200 is alot, i have massed 80 gyrocopters in a couple of matches
80?!? must be a ffa.
Btw, did they work or were they useless?
they only worked because i avoided all confrontations with the enemy and went straight to their base or i would use it against some guy that thinks its cool to mass air (COUGH*AIR-A-GORN*COUGH).
That army of eighty would only be good against mass air!! nothing else
ANd ofcourse against buildings for hit and run attacks. 80 could easily destroy a few buildings in seconds.
yeah thats true..my fault ..Mainly good for expansions....but face it you need swarms!!!!
well you have to realize that the moment you destroy all of their buildings, they lose.
Turtle in and make Gyros. They attack your base you attack theirs. Who will kill a base quicker? Most likely you..Hide and seek buildings if you gotta =/
ummm have you ever heard of AA ground units and towers??? The gyros will fall like little flieeees..
