First up I want to say I again I really don't like the changes to the Paingivers and Bronzeback. However if this is the direction PP are going to take, then I'll have to accept that.
So after a weekend of testing the Bronzeback and Gladiator (both on their own and together), these would be my suggestions.
- Gladiator loses Follow Up
- Gladiators Animus is returned to the previous version of Train Wreck. (i.e. Follow up and boosted Slam Rolls).
+ Gladiator gains +1 SPD.
+ Gains Stampede
~ Bronzeback's Leadership changes to either: A Titan can charge/slam/trample for Free ... or they may cast their animus for free ... or any small bonus where you don't feel like it's needed to make other titan's good.
I'm still unsure what to suggest for Berserk ... part of me thinks it's pointless without Overtake, so remove it ... and the other part thinks giving him Overtake would be too much for 10pts ... either way it needs to be looked at.
Anyway ... the reasons for these suggestions are to make the gladiator viable on its own, and to make the Leadership bonus minor and not to feel like it's required.
I'm still not 100% happy with even the above suggestions but I feel they would at least make both beasts viable on their own, and when combined still competitive.
