You posted the same thing twice, only this time... with a poll!

First, you can edit something that you have posted. That is what the edit button is for. I am pretty sure that you can even add a poll to a topic. Second, if you cannot add a poll to something you have posted, then you can easily delete something that you post if no one has responded to it. Thus, I recommend that you delete your other topic, pronto. Third, it helps if you are clear about what you are saying. If you can't spend the time to form a clear idea, and put it into words in an intelligible manner (including the use of good grammar, spelling, and punctuation), then why do you expect anyone else to put the time into reading what you wrote? Fun fact: if you spend a little extra time making something legible, you save everyone else the effort of figuring out what you are trying to say, and you are more likely to (a) get people to read what you wrote, and (b) get on topic responses. Finally, if you don't have a really interesting question, with the possibility of numerous good replies, then you really don't want to post a poll. For instance, I am not sure why this is a poll -- yes/no questions generally do not make good polls. For examples of good polls, I suggest that you search for the user "jelco the galactaboy" on the main forum, and look through some of his earlier posts.

Grenades, airstrikes, and exploding armours happened.

As long as you don't search for my polls in the Darwinia forums, that is. :P

I thought I was pretty clear on that score. ;)

This would only work against the normal turrets, as the rocket and the flame turret are area effects.

Even then formations are slower than normal DGs, a single formation attacking the front flanked by a line of DGs on either side attacking at right angles to the turret is much better, if a little harder to organise.
