1/22 Update: Due to some last minute changes, the Lancer no longer has a tear down duration, and will only have to setup once during a fight. The description has been updated accordingly.

    pairing a lancer with bishops seems like it would be interesting.

    WOW...
    Hey Tony you're so fine, you're so fine you blow our minds.. Hey Tony.... Hey Tony.
    When is the Irkle expected to become a Hero ? .. You know, a more retarded unit that runs right up to a distance of 5 and attempts to outwit the target with it's much superior intellect.

    it may be an infantry similar to how a mortar team is an infantry.

    Kixeye I understand this is a game and all but this thing is cartoony. At this point I'm looking for more realistic weapons used in real life. Like Abrhams for tanks and stealth bombers that real life militaries have. Scud missiles for defenses stuff like that. But anyhow it's gonna be interesting to see if this is infantry, vehicle, or air unit lol. Defense lab has been idle for awhile how come defense has become a non factor but we have a hyper inflation of offensive stuff?

    thats because its more closely a guy with a jetpack on then an aviation vehicle

    mortar team is the closest comparison when determining what it might be though

    i think its a infantry not a vehicle because there is no engine and also read this.

    Tony, really, Tony? Setinels heroes have such wonderful names like Galen, Ardra, and Sunder, and then we have Tony. You should let the fans drum up hero names at this point, it'll probably sound a hell of a lot cooler.

    Progress in the name of a better future.

    was always going to be a sentinel hero this month, just of the 3 units sentinels had to choose from there wasn't much they could do to make a good hero.

    realistically none of the 3 were going to be overly useful

    was either 
    *the tony we are presented with
    *a seeker who would loose half his functionality in a gold tech, and would ultimately play second place to kyle in everything
    *a valient hero which i guess is a bit more shooty then a normal valient but would be almost always be replaced by oren or martin

    sure, in this one event they might do ok, but after that can you say you would ever use a valiant hero?
