>>34811864
It is basically all you could want in an assault transport. Except for the ability to bring troops directly into close combat.

And I think this was the design objective. A heavy assault transport that is not a Landraider.
So they made it a landfaring trireme.
And it will be glorious to ram them into enemy units of any size before unloading troops to finish off the survivors.

Now, the real problem here is that people could start and play them as battering rams to go and hunt enemy units without infantry in them. This migth make them really unfun to play against.

No, that is just unholy wrath that has decided your opponent is the one it's going to shit on today.

Elite Soviet Ore Harvesters are nigh-impossible to kill, they are that bullshit.

Unless I'm remembering wrong, they also repair themselves over time, coupled with bullshit armor/life, they can just...sit there, plinking away at entire armies until they fade away.

>>34817827
>>34817850
Soviet warminer that killed enough dudes to reach veteran status. This usually happens in maps where two players, often AI ones, start on oposite sides of the same gold deposit. The warminer will then roll out into the ore field and do its work, while taking shots at everything that passes through.

The warminer is already one of the toughest units in the game, and it regenerates and it is entirely immune to mind control. The gun on the top is a heavy machine gun and stays that way through the first level of veterancy. When it then reaches max veterancy, it turns into a cannon, that is only surpassed damage wise by the gun of the heaviest tank in the game when it is also at max veterancy, and it fires twice. It also becomes much tougher and it still regenerates. If memory serves me right, the regeneration gained from max veterancy stacks with it's existing regenaration. Kirov airships can't catch it, groups of harriers can't sustain enough damage, neither can rocketeers, so air crafts is entirely out of the question. It is likely to slaughter any number of infantry you can throw at it, even hero units, and only groups chrono legionaries can close in on fast enough to get a shot at it and catch it before they get one shotted, and then it would take them so long that units could arrive from almost any part of the map to kill them before they make it disappear. The entirety of the yuri faction is useless apart from an army of lasher tanks, yuri's base defenses are completely useless. Some sneaky player might try to use terror drones, but the sheer amount of health and regeneration gives it time to drive back to base and wait for the repair building to be build just for it. The only unit to reliably take them out, is an apocalypse tank of equal veterancy or a battle fortress loaded entirely guardian GIs, and even that is a tough fight. Alternately hope for it to drive into a forest of prism towers or tesla coils.

So it is very much the kind of thing you sink 90% of your total economy into killing.

And it's the first unit in the game you can control.

>>34819098

"Squad of Four Elite Soviet Warminers Enter Africa, Slaughter EVERY LIVING THING, Begin to mine unimpeded."

Seems about right.
>>
>>34819098
The problem is, its base damage is zip.
Any group of tanks can catch and destroy it before it reaches veterancy.
A Warminer gaining veterancy is a fluke. Normally the Allied Chronominer is much superior as it can just teleport to home base when attacked.
Only in when the Warminer reaches the highest veterancy does it become awesome.
>>
>>34819098
Well if I remember right, it costs 1200-1400 command and conquer money, and has to kill six times that amount of money worth of enemies or buildings. If it gets there, it earned it.

Oh god that brings me back.

My first encounter with an Elite Warminer was a 6 player free for all, total destruction rules.

The one who got it was the first one to be destroyed, he escaped with just his Warminer, Declared "I will Return, and you all shall fall before me." and disappeared off the face of the Earth.

Game progressed, we got sightings of The Dreadminer every now and again, picking off wounded and weak scraps from skirmishes.

Then came the last battle, where we all poured EVERYTHING into one massive clusterfuck against each other.

Then out of fucking nowhere the Dreadminer just comes out of the Shadows behind my base, destroys all that I love and hold dear, disappears again, my forces fall with no back up.

Then he does it again, and again, and again until there are only two people left, then it just sits there and watches as they destroy each other and then just casually drives in and ends it.

Fucking Warminers, man, they haunt me to this day.
