Points as Power

Game Theory

The forum is always stoking a discussion about varies troops in Infinity being overpowered or underpowered.  An occasionally credible naysayer will say, “No, anything can work,” which is true, but I think the fundamental point that player frustrations center around is not specific combos of units, but the relative costs of their abilities.  This is an article inspired from a recent Infinity Discord chat with Teslarod on the topic.

Infinity Factions, Artichoked

Game Theory, Smelly Humans

My thoughts on Infinity’s factions after 12 months of Human Sphere.  Because I am rating factions on a scale of 1 to 5, I don’t see how it’s meaningful unless at least 1 faction gets a 1 artichoke rating, and another gets a 5 artichokes rating.  This rating considers factional context, and model availability and obsolescence.  On a strict rate of balance, nothing would get lower than a 2 or 3.  With that said:

Guesswork: The Next Heavy Infantry

Guesswork

There are currently a couple new discussions on the forum now mulling over our possible future new TAG or pheroware hacker.  We have seen Corahtar L1, Pheroware, and the native Pheroware skill on the Kaauri, but as of yet, we have not seen Corahtar L2 to give us the whole package.  Now, I am as curious as the next artichoke to see what our new “phacker” will be, but it occurred to me tonight that the next platform to receive it might coincide with the allusions of new Heavy Infantry from the Ectros fluff.
