@monos, that thread was talking about company of heroes online. they even said that the vcoh calli was good. if you are a blobber, then prepare to get arty-ed. calliope should only take out one unit at a time, at most 2. either you're trolling or you just had bad luck. either way, calliope does not need to be nerfed.


OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD AND RAPE CEASERS GHOST IN FRONT OF THE CHILDREN!?

Callies are slightly OP compared to other arty to make up for the fact they come in a rather underwhelming doctrine. Face it, everyone goes armour for them specifically. While they are strong, they are counterable I think this is a bit of a L2P issue. If you have Panthers, you should be able to easily find a way to attack his callies. If he has them on the field, NEVER get more than 3 squads in the same place.
If you get into an argument with me, you're wrong.

L2p means when 2 n00bs face eachother, the one with the Cali-OP wins ^^

Uhh OK. This doesn't change anything. Gameplay isn't balanced for noobs, it's balanced for higher level games and gets carried down to noobs - The same way the game is balanced for 1v1s and carries down to teamgames. The Calli is fine and won't be touched. Snipers are also OP, to a degree, but noobs can't use them right so they suck. It just means the noobs need to learn and get better rather than complain that something's OP or UP in the forum.
If you get into an argument with me, you're wrong.

@Monos: Are you Pie ???

@Bopokippo: Honestly if you cant kill a calliope with 2 Panthers thats all on you. And just like any arty if you keeping mvoing you wont tank AS much damage. I mean you can always disable its treads.

But then the panthers get stuck between a rock and a hard place. See, if your panthers try to move back, then they go slower and allow riflemen to sticky them as unsupported panthers (and they WILL be unsupported at a minimum with proper calliope usage to kill PGs and light vehicles) kinda are terrible vs infantry. I would bet that panthers are probably the best shot a PE has but honestly I think the only real chance is some kind of precise timing attack right after a barrage but if the enemy has two calliopes, that window becomes very small or even nonexistant.

as said before, the calliope is really the only thing that shines in the armor doctrine, the pershing being somewhat meh.

though i must say, if you dont like calliopes here, you should have seen them in COH:O. those things were damn beasts

Your panther will not be as slow as you make it out to be. Honestly, even a KT might be able to move fast enough to get out of the range of a sticky. And the Panther shouldn't be just ramming right into rifles and calliopes (well maybe the calliopes). They have awsome range, take advantage of it. And IMO with MGs Panthers make okay infantry killers.

And I agree the Pershing overall for the cost and time it takes kinda sucks

And sometimes backing up or turning arond isnt the best option. Sometimes I make U turns with my tanks ;D

The Calli barrage destroying 2 Panthers is lucky.

They were low and retreating. Rocket barrage hit everything in the area of hitting. It fires many many rockets = Easier to hit :)
