using Ostheer carpet bombing and Soviet god of war on HQ sector.
« on: November 08, 2013, 05:36:02 PM »
Currently the Ostheer carpet bombing skill and Soviet god of war skill cannot be used on enemy HQ territory.  But U.S. 105mm or Wehrmacht firestorm and V1 skills can be used on enemy HQ, wiping out those retreaters, providing lots of entertainment.  ;D

So I think all those skills should be able to be fired on enemy HQ sector.

About the balance, I think V1 is almost as devastating as god of war or carpet bombing, and you can continuously bombard enemy HQ with U.S. 105mm skill if you have enough munitions, So I think allowing them on HQ won't be troublesome.
God damn GI, make me proud.

God of war in base sector would probably demolish all the techs. I think its kept out for a good reason.

Carpet bombing on the other hand its more like defensive 280mm barage, and it should be allowed in base sector.

right, I think god of war's damage against the building may be tweaked for it.

Both abilities are too strong and too dangerous to allow players to use them in HQ-sectors.
So no chance, guys.
May the force be with you.

God of war deals damage for a too long time, that's why its not useable on enemy base sectors. It would wipe out all infantry units retreating to the hq during its duration, that's the reason why its not allowed for base sectors (same counts for sector arty). Carpet Bombing could actually be useable on enemy bases as its damage is comparable to otehr axis arty abilities.

Abuse is abuse and has to go.

Also, carpet bombing appears to not have smoke.

It has a loud engine roaring in front of it and you see planes approaching so it's actually easier to figure out the target than if somebody uses a V1.

Personally, I think the V1 the most obvious out of the all no matter if there are planes or loud engines. The sound of the V1 isn't limited to one spot, it is broadcasted all over the map at any moment. The sound of the V1 rocket is also very loud and long, making it even more obvious.
My personal favorite

Jesz this thread is one year old. Why reviving it again? Carpet Bombing is currently not ingame anyway.
