Sorry for the lack of updates, I sort of got stuck at something that relate to Scrin and it slow down my modding, Also another small note: The older "Inside look" articles are a bit outdated since more changes and balances been applied, so take that in mind if you ever ganaa read them (Unless I update them again)

For these who thought I didn't focus on scrins compared to the GDI's and Nod's faction, here news for you: I did :P

Inside look and status report, this time on Scrin factions

Scrin's sub factions had potential to be more extreme in their styles in term of power and speed,
With that idea in mind I tried to polish them more so each faction will feel more unique

Reaper17

CNCKW Reaper 17 logo


Reapers were always known for their brute force, Shields, and their heavy tibrium uses (which can also serve as their weakness if you have anti tibrium weapon like Ravager's second ability which was improved and can attack even Reaper Tripood!)

So far here what been added to the mixer:

Units:


55


Reaper17's Devourer Tank Attack Range increased to 500, Name, description, Skin, model, and picture had been changed to "Reaper Devourer Tank"
Cost changed to 1800$ and build time to 18s.
*It will now reveal itself when it firing on enemy's units*

That will give the Reaper17 some sort of artillery unit since they lack the Scrin's big ships,
Reaper Devourer Tank now also have Forcefield Generator upgrade

Shard Walker cost and build time moved back to be 800$ and 8s
Blue Shard upgrade damage increased from 160 to 450

Blue Shard upgrade damage increased from 180 to 300, Weapon speed increased from 500 to 650

Ravager Ravagers are more slower than normal Ravagers though, and can be seen as the Zone troopers of Scrin in a way

Eradicator's Blue Shard damage increased from 150 to 350, speed changed from 500 to 650 to match Reaper Ravager's speed
Eradicator's Shard turrets also shows blue shard skin

Yea, some of them are indeed sketchy, since there are things I forgot to look at again after I changed/added new things in these past 2 years :P

I decided I will leave that to the community
