Weird, I have a crappy computer and I don't notice any lag.
I play the game windowed though ;)

Eggs.

On the one hand, chance for massive army of virii.
On the other, soul destroyers.

Eggs as defender on Assault when those generators look like they're lost = priceless. Abandon them, let the Virii defend them, and if you get a Soul Destroyer, drop to your knees and worship Sepulveda.

I really hate it when the enemy go nuclear and launch at you, usually the spawn point. The first thing you do is move all army out of there, then move a small group off
to the side to reclaim the spawn point when it's all over. You spent the rest of the time until detonation trying to move any freshly spawned multiwiniand out of the way when you realise to your dismay that half of your army is chasing the nukes trying to shoot them. Once they start chasing the nukes, they're goners.

Also i dont like the way that soul destroyers kill ants (why? no souls!)

How do you know ants have no souls?

I suspect that ants only appear to have no souls, the same way that evilinians appear to have no souls, due to them both being on team black/4.

Then again, they may really have no souls.

Cause they listen to new music, rather than that old time Rock n Roll.

I don't mind ants or soul destroyers, only futurewinians annoy me. It seems like every time someone opens a crate with futurewinians they end up at my spawn... :cry:

Here's a nice shot of 400+ multiwinians getting sucked up (won before that though, so it's partly set-up):

I find those Soul Destroyers pretty damn annoying.
We're the same. Nuisances with nowhere to go.

Then again, they may really have no souls.

This description of the Heart of Chaos map might explain the lack of souls for evilwinians.

Code: Select all

A turning point in the history of the red tribe occured here, as they regained their free will and stopped being influenced by the Virus. The Virus has since stopped using living multiwinians to do it's work


As for the ants... when they die no souls come out, when the get killed by soul destoyers the soul destroyer gets no new souls. But we also know that they collect souls and that more souls = more ants.


The futurewinians have souls though...

Soul destroyers are incredibly annoying, since they're essentially impossible to kill without using another powerup
