this thread is to discuss typhon a bit further
12 pts warrants a lot from a warbeast. he can do it all but suffers from severe glass jaw syndrome regardless of animus.
ill give an example today but please take it lightly because everything was setup bad from my side. i was seeing how he would hold up.
i played two guy. i know we pay a premium for his cross functioning but man he just cant take many hits.
todays example although i set him up for failure so i cant be mad at anyone but myself.
i send my angel in at a spriggan with forced evolution and do a geat deal to it. typhon with playin god charges a great bear and kills him then proceeds to kill 3 demo corp and 2 shock troopers. now i am not expecting him to live but it hrew him up there to create a diversion which worked but he fell to two demo corps charging.
obviously i set him up for failure but does he need anything to warrant his 12 pts? i think he needs reach back for sure but something about his life dial seem rather unimpressive if you ask me but at the same time i dont know if increasing armor to 18 is too much for him or increasing life to have equal life in each spiral.
he also needs reach back. for a 12 pt heavy to get up and attack the front lines then after killing the modeld not being able to shoot again because reach had him engaged but he was not engaged with them was very horrid.
thoughts on possible changes to typhon? this has been the 11th game i ahve played with him and he just seems far too squishy(regardless iof animus) with his combination of average defense and lower armor.
