Hey Boothy, quick question for you. Just played Tau since you changed the Riptide's model to the new one. I only really played the one round against a race I don't usually match against but the Riptide suit got absolutely trashed. Did you rebalance it in someway? I was using it as a front-line tank as I usually do but it took a little small arms fire from some Grey Knight Strike Squads and just absolutely melted.
I also noticed that the build time seems shorter than it used to be. Was this just a little confirmation bias from seeing it get demolished or did you make it a lot squishier than initial Riptide release?

the mod it self is well done .. nice units .. not many classic gameplay changes (just feels like the good old dow but with many new units and races.

the only thing i really hate is the balancing .. this mod seems to be very chaos oriented. means: it needs alot of balance tweeks or .. well needs just some kind of balance

Please, send me any comments you have over the balance.
It's quite hard to do on one's own, so I need others feedback.

(I never thought of it as Chaos orientated. I always play Space Wolves, but I suppose Chaos forces are more fun to build....)
