Your favorite Ghorkov unit ?

Post by Monochrome Vision » Thu Aug 02, 2012 10:44 am

I think the title says it all.
So tell me, forum.
Whats your favorite Ghorkov unit ?

Mine is the Ying.
Fast and agile due to its small size, it can pack up with any enemy airplanes. (If used in groups) :)

In terms of the best unit to create I would have to say the speedy.

A large squad can tear apart almost anything and they move excessivly fast. When user controlled thier speed and firepower (significantly more than the weasle) can be used to slowly but surely pick off most enemy units. They sound rather ominous as well.

My actual favorite unit though would be the gigant. They are really unique and they do massive ammounts of damage.

I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior. If you have too and you aren't afraid to say it, copy and paste this into your signature.

I was going to say the same as Edward.

Speedies can get really annoying when mass deployed, and so I like them a lot when I play Ghorkovs.
They can handle lots of situation and are really effective against some of aerial vehicles.

I do say the same thing than Edward. But for me, the Ying is not really useful after you complete Mykonian Encirclement because the flaks kill it easily and can't capture some sectors the Speedy can.

Gigants are my best choice to attack because they are the only units that do quick damage to Host stations, but they are expensive and don't have great armor, so I tend to protect them at the time the enemy moves in vulnerable positions. I create them at the point the enemy Host turrets are directed towards my HS because most times they'll target the units I create against it.

2nd one is Speedy and Tien-Ying 7, I use them often.

Just a few hours ago, i was playing the mission "snipers!", and i was able to rush both host stations with groups of 12~16 Speedys.
Admitted. They can be pretty useful sometimes...

Thats doubtless. But in air battles, the Ying is used to be my first choice. If you are an expert when it comes to maneuver, then you can elicit the Ying some nice tricks. :awsm:

We can't rely all time on Yings. While it's true you can do great surprises with the Ying maneuvers (such as capturing an already conquered power station with its long range), especially against some incoming units, such as killing some weasels and some air units (like the Crusher) from behind, the opposite also holds true. If I create massed amounts of Yings, it will be awesome against air units, but they are easily destroyed by other enemies if not used right, mainly flaks and units that have easy time with them. They also have rather weak armor, firing rate is lower than Speedy, and poor hit points, and also, they don't inflict as much damage to enemy units and flaks (with only a puny strength of 30 and upgraded very late to 40). In the original MD expansion Yings don't inflict as much trouble to enemies (they are more of a nuisance than a real trouble) as in the New MD expansion mods that the Ying got buffed (having 2x shot, and firepower can be upgraded until 50x2) and is thus much more useful to sector capping and especially against some air units the Ying without double shot couldn't do. (in fact, Yings are rather useful in multiplayer matches to wide sector capping and to stall enemy presence with its great numbers)

I'm good with the Ying, but I'm better with the Tien-Ying 7 due to better firepower and faster speed.

My favorite Ghorkov unit... is there any? I don't really like Ghorkovs. Maybe it's Gigant due to high damage output and relatively fast speed. Tien-Ying 7 is fine too but it has bad maneuverability compared to Warhammer. Speedy is good for defense but quite expensive. Tekh-trak is sometimes useful as it can dodge enemy bombers and helicopters easier than Tiger or Leonid but it has weaker armor and higher cost than Tiger.

Oh, now I know, it must be Skorpio. The only drawback is poor accuracy against fast air targets.
