why the ordos suck


Recommended Posts

"Ordos are fast but weak as hell"

Weak in the sense that in a single fight, Ordos vehicles can be destroyed quickly under heavy fire if it has no veterancy due to weak armour (excluding the Kobra and perhaps the Deviator unless an Assault Tank platoon is concentrating all its fire on a single Kobra or similar overwhelming Anti-Vehicle firepower that no vehicle of ANY house can survive). Not weak in the sense that they can REgenerate HP without any help or veterancy. The inability to restore HP until Lv2 is a weakness of the Harkonnen vehicles and just shows their attitude towards their units - 'to be used and discarded' >:(.

Atreides being good at defence means they can defend aggressively, slowly pressing forward and covering ground without losing it. Similar with Harkonnen if you remember to replace 'discarded' units and rely on both superior numbers and unit specialisations (sometimes I feel Harkonnens need more care over unit specialisations than Ordos and Missile tanks need Ordos level micromanagement :-/).

On a note about Infantry, I prefer Ordos infantry over those of other Houses, especially when I have Sardaukar and/or Fremen among their formations :D. The Mortar is just brilliant against poor tacticians and can reload and fire very quickly, unlike the Minotaurus. The Chem trooper is so cheap and quite fast, as opposed to the Flamethrower Infantry (though the latter is better armoured). Snipers are inefficient against overwhelming numbers of Infantry due to their long reload time. Similar story with their Light Infantry - why are Harkonnen infantry cheaper, faster to reload, do equal damage and have equal range as their Atreides counterparts?)

There is no single way of interpreting and defining a House - its up to how the players use them as much as what units/turrets/Superweapon they have. :P

ordos the best house in the game from my standards.

i would say that they build the fastes.Also they have shields.they suck in small groups but in big groups they rock.

For people that sux at ord ur a newbie because if u were a novice or a master u wouldn't talk about ord like that.

because every great player knows ord is the best rusher the best in speed witch is relevent also they have great sneak atack play like spice bowl the water the dig right in thats the best for attacking. Because sooner or later u got do many there unstoppable. Non stop dudsties will sooner or later kill ur enemy just takes a good player to know that

i dont think ordos are the "FASTEST" builders, it just depends on how many ConYards you got. And the shields, they could be taken out by a sardaukar Elite which is what? $300? for an expensive Tank, engineer filled APC, or Deviator? besides, they are only the best rusher cuz they have the fastest hovering units

Chaos_Storm chemical troopers barely do any damage to Sardaukar, which makes Flamers better. But Chem Troopers are much faster which is very important!

Black_Emperor is right. Every House is equal. Same for you Chaos_Storm. It's which suits your strats, tacts, and tastes better. The better house to you is the one you are best at. Not everyone are Atreides pros. Not everyone knows how to rush early with Harkonnens. Not everyone knows how to use LaserAPC rushes.

Right?

Agreed  :). Ultimately, the results of a fight will depend on how each player interprets the situations and reacts to them.  ;)

Ok, Chem troopers may be inefficient to send against Sardaukar, so they would have to serve as human shields for Mortar positions, as the latter do rip through Sardaukar with a large volley of shells. Alternative - Dust Scouts (only if you outnumber them) and Kobras.

Which one of you is Black_Emperor? I am under direct orders from the Executrix to detain him and transport him to Draconis IV for re-education. :) Failure to comply will result in a painful chemical death. ;D
