    Unfortunately, the Turncoat effect have the drawback that damage dealt on units with the Turncoat status effect will be carried over to the Shepard. Due to this, the Shepard should be used with caution.

    I do also agree that this mechanic is pretty annoying and especially due to the amount of damage that will be transferred to the Sheppard.

    Sheppard is a gold collecting unit...designed to ALWAYS take damage no matter how you use it...just another sneaky way to gain coin from player. I'm not even using that piece of junk...complete scam unit.

    i understand that the turn coats are supposed to cause a little damage but the math just doesnt add up. A lvl 10 lancer is 5 mill so im going to assume a maxed one is around 8 mill health. 8x5=40 mill in damage not 80. thats not slight damges that over double the units attacked health. we can spin filter this or that yada yada yada but it makes no sense for them to take double the damage the unit you killed has. if thats an intended feature this is one of the worst units created.

    Just guessing, its maybe because the weapons lab, as we all know it boosts defender's defense so lancers are taking more hits than its supposed to.

    Still won't use that unit even at pvp, with those conditions its just a no no unit.

    ...Or Go go bar, the turning back damage to Shepherd are considered hits from defenders so its multiplied by the gogo bar bonus rate.

    Yep just another disappointing unit that could of had some potential.Put in your hangar and leave it there to collect dust or scrap it if you dont have the storage for it.Yet again another epic fail.

    Yep another slap in our faces,so glad i ground out the shadow ops bases to get it,not to mention the boss bases also.Well the good part of it is i didnt have to spend any gold on it,not that i would anyway,just a lot of wasted time.If they keep up with this nonsense,I dont think we will have to worry about the alleged transition to the HTML 5 platform.

    i HONESTLY HAVE TO AGREE WITH MOST OF YOUR GUYS ASSESSMENTS OF THE SHEPHARD!!! It SUCKS how much damage it takes with the "turncoat" status which makes it pretty much USELESS to me as well!!! They really should reevaluate it's damage filter because I have zero use for it, and if enough people complain about it then hopefully Kixeye will change it up - fingers crossed

    No I don't think that's what people are asking for at all.
    A bit of fairness would be a good start.

    Like not lying through their teeth and talking about "slight damage" when they mean "excessive damage" for example.

    It could be a problem for a while, like Herald was, and even now we got Manticores who has same range than Sheppard, 12 units for plat and are faster than Sheppard... So sheppard don't need to have a weakness that big! Also, we know that it's just a game, and we may accept that some tech are reasonable in this game universe, maybe some gas can really make some confusion and change minds to start friendly fire, but whats is the reasonable explanation to a gas who turn units sides and also count damage to the attacker? It is a telepathic damage?
