So this is the first time I've been hit with the Nova since it came out, and holy crap, I might as well off had an empty base, with empty bunkers and no turrets mounted.
My base normally gives people days of repairs to flat me... but it was as if it was nothing.. level 20 sharpshooters, max turrets, max walls, max  bunkers, max drone silo, all where nothing to the Nova.

Did kixeye intend for the Nova to be able to RUBI flat MAX level bases and only take a tiny bit of damage in return??

Not that i will complain when im flatting people with mine on RUBI, but the point is,  its still ridiculous. 

In the past, super units had a weakness in return for being so strong in other areas.
Herald - Super super slow and short range 
Jugg - super slow and weak damage filters.
War rig- short range, weak damage filters
Darkstorm -  despite it being still super strong, it did have a weakness - Cant hit drones / air
Blackout - slow, weak to hunters / burst.

But the Nova, so far ,doesn't have ANY weakness, it 1 shot instant kills everything, air, drones, ground. Nothing can touch it. Combine this with a darkstorm and you can turn on RUBI and kill any base.

    seems the best way to kill it is in a toon battle if you can manage it, just isnt the easiest thing to pull off, if were lucky the survivor's defensive unique will have about 110mil hp which would take i think 2 minutes for a nova to charge up a shot for.

    Lol, you obviously have not used the Nova vs the Kraken yet.....

    The Lv 10 Kraken in the Kraken II base just wasted my Lv 5 Nova in seconds and I was trying to run from it.

    With the health of the Kraken causing the charge up time to be so long for the Nova I pretty much think the Kraken can kill it or almost kill it before it can fire on the Kraken. 

    So looks like the Kraken is your counter to the Nova.

    Yep. I have a ton of repairs including my nova from the kraken base and didn't even kill it, hardly put a dent in it. won't be getting the kraken anytime soon.

    I'm just your average misfit.

    So they came out with a counter for the nova rather quick this time.Typically we get a op unit to be king for a few weeks,guess not this time though.Im just convinced they dont have a clue how to manage a video game.I mean look at today ffs all the different bases and things to do.way to much in my opinion.Theres just no balance at all .

    isnt more options a good thing? especially since there are 3 factions people could be allied to.

    Only as a 1 vs 1

    Ardra eats up the nova too

    But in a grouping.... the kraken gets slaughtered by the other units

    What are you grouping? it targets 16 units at once and prioritizes targets selected by the player most units that come in quantities higher than 16 are sustain and nowhere near as effective as something that is burst fire

    You have not seen the KRAKEN once it is buildt  and used in a base either. HUGE DIFFERENCE in the KIXEYE UNIT and the PLAYERS UNIT>  You have been playing this game long enough to know that but yet you fail to remember that KIXEYE units are always over powered and our units SUCK ****. Nothing is ever like it is when kixeye first brings it out. and the KRAKEN Is a HUGE WASTE OF TIME>

    At times, yes,what im saying is why do they have to flood the map with so many new things to get and then put a time limit on them.Im sure most of the players that play WC have lives.All i was doing was pointing out theres no balance with the game.I can go 3 -4 days with little to do,and then all the sudden we have to much to do in a short time period.

    I always like how they do that there units are 100 times then the ones we get.But i will say it works for them,just think of the coin it generates for them.Sorry not me,Im quite used to this tactic of theres.

    Yes it does lmao and stop crying Over powered every time a **** new unit comes it its all i hear. Its next gen unit its going to be more powerfull than other units ffs. I have killed 3 so far that were in my base. Your just not using the right spread of units against it

    LOL Indeed!  But TroyW, you don't get the same Kraken as the one in the Kraken base.  The one you get can't kill Ardra.  The one they have will wipe out every heavy you send at it in a matter of seconds.

    im not seeing it. just hit an omega blackout and the drakon took 5 shots and the apollo took 6 to kill. either they changed something or this unit isnt nearly as OP as everyone is saying. i thought this unit was supposed to "one shot" units but it doesnt do that.

    if your allied to corpus adaptive armor on those units is preventing it from one shotting them.
