For an unstoppable "flood" of little scurrying shits that steal bodies and tech, they kinda do fuckall to shields.

You'd think the forerunners would work on getting really good shield technology, on a cosmic scale, instead of creating a set of doom bomb planets, on a cosmic scale.

Elites, and masterchief, have shields that pop after taking a few dozen infection forms.

The issue isn't that, the issue is the forerunner race focusing their efforts and technology into building a set of universe exploding bombs, instead of perfecting the shield technologies that clearly fucked up the flood so easily without requiring any effort.

The flood is a single plague, and can create environments where other forms of rot and decay can thrive. Nurgle is ALL OF THE PLAGUES, if he can't control the flood through being fucking nurgle or through warp interference with the gaymind, nurgle can literally just turn the flood's ideal environments against them.

The Flash can run fast. How fast? He can run so fast he can appear everywhere in your field of vision. And I'm not just talking illusions; he can accelerate so fast that the seconds it takes for him to be there and not be there simply do not happen. He's always there. I'm not just talking about Earth either. He can appear in every conceivable point in the universe instantly if he so chooses. No ground you say? Fuck ground. He's running on Speed Force. If there's a direction, orientation, angle or spot in the universe not occupied, the Flash he can be there.
But we're not done. Moving so fast Flash gains another ability called the Infinite Mass Punch. I won't blow your brains with science, but once something accelerates past the speed of light it gains infinite mass. So now we've got infinite Flashes, all with Infinite Mass Punches wound up. You cannot block infinite mass, it would crush reality.
But we're not done. The Flash can also traverse time and dimensions (see CoTE), so now he's gone to every possible conceivable point not just in physical existence, but in the 4th dimension such that he is at every conceivable yoctosecond you ever existed. In every single dimension, everywhere, all at once with Infinite Mass Punches.
But we're not done. Just to make sure he lands every hit, all those Flashes can slow down your speed to the point you cannot move a single electron. You weren't fast enough before, but now you can't even think to dodge.
Now you're done. There is no defense in any universe that could stop this. It's absolute bullshit at its finest. And it is completely possible for him. Infinite everything, what are you even going to do? You're gonna stand there and stop existing. The first punch completely erases you from existence.
Never make another power level thread for the rest of your life. The answer is: The Flash.

They can get infected just fine, and they get turned into carrier forms. Elites, Brutes, and Humans are good for making combat forms.

Lots of things can defeat the flood, lots of things can't. The problem is that in each game's universe there would have to be some kind of introduction and a planned final for the flood.

Technically speaking just about any video game character could probably beat the flood if it was introduced via the proper methods.

RE: A meteorite lands on the planet, Umbrella operatives try to examine it and the scientists become flood, quarantine happens and your guys go in to get the research materials. Finale is a thermonuclear explosion to sterilize the plant.

DMC: Flood gets summoned through random demonic portals, Dante has to kill them all and break the demonic entity that summoned them, which will cause all of the flood particles and entities to get pulled back into their original location in space.

Etc. Anything else is just a fanwank of "MY POWERFUL RACE COULD BEAT YOUR POWERFUL CHARACTER!!!!"

But is being able to escape fights a bad thing? You could never really get away from a close quarters battle in previous Halos. And its not as if everyone playing the game can just sanic out the door when their shields drop - by the time they try to run, its usually to late.

And can you explain why having larger maps is bad? I understand that bigger =/= better, but if they're designed with sprinting in mind, is there really a problem

I dug the armor abilities in Reach, I wouldn't mind keeping sprint as one of them. It was pretty cool and added a lot of depth to the gameplay. In terms of multiplayer, Reach was by far the best.

Sprint should not be anything more though

If a Spartans armor costs as much as a warship why does he still die in one shot?
>>
>>263325646
If you died in Halo, it was most likely your own fault. By having sprint, you can now avoid death by running away, thus causing a better player than you to lose a deserved kill.

As for bigger maps? Well, Halo hasn't really been a game filled with large maps, since 4v4 has been the most popular gametype in all Halo games, and vehicles are pretty much forgotten in BTB because of sprint.

"As the 41st Millennium drew to a close in 999.M41 during what many pessimistic Imperial historians have begun to call the Imperium of Man's Time of Ending, the Adepts of the Adeptus Mechanicus discovered to their horror that the Golden Throne's mechanisms were slowly failing and that they lacked the knowledge to repair its arcane technology. Unless something is done, the Golden Throne's life support systems will eventually malfunction and the Emperor of Mankind will die, surrendering his spirit to the Warp and throwing all of Mankind into darkness once more -- or setting the stage for humanity's final salvation."

Are you talking about The Emperor? The Emperor didn't mind some aliens, but his motto regarding them was "play nice and no funny business or I'll smash your face in."

Most of the friendly Alien races were killed by the Men of Iron, though. Afterwards it was mostly ass holes like the Orks and Yu'vath who were left.

The Emperor would be fucking furious at the Imperium if he was to suddenly come back to life. It is almost the exact opposite of what he wanted. You know, it's supposed to be an ironic twist of fate that everything he was working for was fucked up and twisted by the very people he tried so hard to protect.

Not surprising, I'm certain 40K lore has been rewritten many times. as I understand it, humans were part of a Star Trek like Federation with aliens long before the Dark Age of Technology, where most of the fighting was done by The Men of Iron, who were basically Terminators.

The Men of Iron rebelled, and began wiping out organic life, including various alien races and nearly exterminating mankind completely. Some kind of virus was made that devoured metal which was used to defeat the Men of Iron. Afterwards, AI's, now known as Abominable Intelligence were outlawed and robots were replaced with Servitors.

Almost everything was gone, most of humanities technology was lost(which is why it's so important to "discover" forgotten human technology) and mankind had to rebuild. this was the Dark Age of Technology.

Enter The Emperor to rise humanity back to it's former glory. Most of the friendly aliens were gone, so the Emperor had a strict "play nice or fuck off" policy. The Emperor had several goals.

1. Rediscover/Reinvent their lost technology.

2. Spread humanities seed to every corner of the galaxy, so it's numbers may never be extinguished again.

3. Find a way to bypass Warp Interference for space travel. The short term fix was the Navigator Gene, the mid-tier fix was taking all ready existing tech(Eldar Warp Gates) and reverse engineering them, the unrealistic long-term solution was to rediscover or reinvent pre-fall Lightspeed Travel technology, but this would rely on a huge amount of luck or miraculously remaking technology that took humanity over a thousand years to develop.

The organization that would later twist to become the Adeptus Mechanicus had an almost identical plan to point 3 without the Emperor telling them. The Mechanicus would eventually become completely stifled by politics and rigid laws where only the highest level magos could "invent" anything and reverse engineer and "purify" any alien tech.

About this. It's not that exactly, though there are varying laws and opinions on it because the Imperium is so fucking gigantic... It's mainly a combination of respecting the technologies function over understanding it and only the highest level Tech Engineers being trusted to reverse engineer or invent anything.

The Adeptus Mechanicus, that is, the guys in charge of humanities technology, are utterly stifled by their own in-fighting and politics, and even when there are a few people allowed to make any actual scientific progress and discovery, half the time politics is getting in the way.

Like, one tech priest wanted to reverse engineer that Plasma Reactor blueprint they discovered, so he sabotages/besmirches the guy currently doing it so he can have HIS chance, but then that shady business is discovered by another tech priest and he manipulates events so the Plasma Reactor reverse engineering is put on hold so he can start a completely new experiment he's convinced everyone is a better allocation of time and resources. Meanwhile, another tech priest is hatching his own scheme... ad infinite.

In short, the guys in charge of technology are a combination of religious morons and big fucking babies.

Spartans are immune to the flood

>The files have been corrupted into madness by the Fall, and the unleashing of the most potent informational warfare systems ever to exist to defeat the Iron Men. Nearly all of Mars was rendered uninhabitable, what they live in now is built on the top of the ruins. They send archeotech expeditions in to find shit, nearly all of them never come back. The sheer number of rogue war machine running around in there is sufficient to rape the mind.

>Then came the Heresy, which was not earth-exclusive. Mars as the second most critical planet in the Imperium was the site of fighting nearly as ferocious as on Terra, with Mechanicus loyalists and Hereteks fighting tooth, nail, and mechadendrite everywhere. Ancient machines were unleashed, viruses both normal and daemonic unleashed into all the computer systems. Nearly every single stored record on Mars was rendered unusable, and those that survived are half the time self-aware and don't like you, or daemonic and actively try to kill you.

If you come back with a schematic, it is almost certainly gibberish, and if it isn't, it's probably corrupted into uselessness. If it does come back whole it was probably malevolently fucked with so that instead of a Lasgun power cell it's a fucking grenade set to detonate the second you finish building it.

>Why do you think they want off-world STCs so damned much if they had them all here? The fucking Heresy is why. Off-world they only have to contend with the Fall's war and its effects on the machinery plus twenty thousand years of degradation with no maintenance. But at least off-world it'll probably just not work instead of actively seeking to kill you.
>>
>>263346835
>Why do you think they seek to placate the Machine Spirit? It's because it exists. The fragments of trillions of self-aware programs, flourishing during the Dark Age of Technology and shattered by Man in his war with the Iron men, imprisoning the few who had not set themselves irrevocably into the machinery, a prison smashed wide open by the Heresy. Everything that can hold programming in the Imperium has a shard of a program in it. EVERYTHING. And you'd better fucking please it or it will do everything in its power to make your day shit.

>Sure, if it's a Lasgun it'll just not work or start shooting off rounds by itself, but if you piss off a Land Raider you can say bye-bye to half a continent. They apply these principles to things without spirits by habit, since they're so used to dealing with tanks that if not talked to just right might go rogue and annihilate the Manufactorum before they can be killed.

I could quote the rest but go read it yourself.

You're stating the barebones version. The Flood were able to use Precursor technology to completely wreck the Forerunners. I'm talking about weapons and constructs able to literally form matter cables called star highways to ride across the universe. They could tether together entire systems in order to have a giant ass society.

A Precursor Gravemind is the one who corrupted Mendicant Bias, the Forerunner defense grid AI. Everything went to shit after that.

I'd say both what you quoted and what I said were largely accurate. They're both different things really.

Over the thousands and thousands of years, the Mechanicus has either fallen to dogma or pettiness.

Technology is regarded as both sacred and highly dangerous, and usually only the most trustworthy and highest ranking Magos are allowed to study and replicate it.

There has actually been some reclamation and progress achieved.

Pretty sure they've even re-discovered the Iron Men SCT at least once which was cause to scramble the fuck-jets.

Commisar Gaunt found em, figured out they were corrupted by Chaos and blammed them. Later found the STC to the Castigator-class titan, a titan even bigger than the Imperator-class and equipped with way better tech, then figured out that way corrupted too and also blammed it.

>>263348382
Though I'm aware that a Land Raider isn't as tough as people say(a Baneblade shits all over it) some machine-spirits are capable of making machines go beyond their limitations and primary functions.

There is a "haunted" ship in the Koronus Expanse owned by a Rogue Trader that people think is haunted but it's just got a helpful Machine Spirit/s(AI) that sometimes helps out. Like warning the crew of something or strengthening the shields or making the laser turrets more potent.

>>263348531
It was an intentional move on the behalf of the Forerunner. The Precursors created Humans and Forerunners to be the shepherds of the galaxy. Forerunners wanted to be the golden child and named themselves to resemble Precursors as well as attempting to reach the same status of godhood. Eventually this led to all out war.

Do you think the actual heavy tanks of golden age ever find their way back into Imperial possesion?

>>263348945

Nigga a Leman Russ is pound-for-pound already the better tank, with a Lascannon and it's standard Battlecannon it#s a giant fucking threat to the LR. And you can prolly build a hundred for the price of one LR.

This doesn't even bring my own favourite tank into play, the Macharius, specifically the Macharius Vanquisher variant. This is my personal boomstick.

That was a comic about some Admech fucks finding a sealed tomb from the Fall or something. Turns out there's this terrible living machine in it that goes all unstoppable terminator on them, strong enough to slap Astartes around like nothing. They seal the tomb and the Magos stays inside to be mechano-raped for all eternity. That's about the whole story.

from what I read they weren't immune.. granted I only read the books based on halo 1-3 and ghosts of onyx but from what I understood if the spore taps your spinal column it's gg. Cortana rigged Chief's shields to kill spores, only defense I know of.

Sam was the first Spartan II to die in combat. He didn't get shot down like some pussy, oh hell no.

After snapping a bunch of hunters in half with his BARE FUCKING HANDS he taken a fully charged plasma pistol shot to the chest. Now, this was before their armour had shields, so it just melted straight through that shit. Problem was, their escape plan was "jump through cold vacuum of space", and that shit just doesn't work without your tank-grade space suit, so he volunteered to stay behind and punch the shit out of the Covenant ships reactor until it exploded and blew the fuck out of their invasion.

Seriously, every other Spartan sounds way much cooler than the Cheif in their stories.

so I heard if he dies he gets reborn, he stays alive now cuz he is responsible for humans being able to go through the warp and if he died the loss of warp capability for however brief a time would basically fuck over humanity as all other races would attack. But if he's supposedly so powerful that he can rekt shit when he's reborn... Why not just pull all defenses to holy terra and the closest worlds and pull the plug?
