Best and worst dropship boarding locations

Post by HKO2006 » 25 Oct 2017, 02:57

BEST
RO (outdated due to new windows at RO south exit)
Defense wise: there is no space at west and south exit for marines fire plus restriction of movement by window frame at west and 1/2 tile choke point at south. East side is open but there is a wall blocking direct fire plus no marine go through maintenance anyway.
Meta wise: instant deny marines of equipments, easy access to cryo to deny reinforcement (or gain hosts)
► Show Spoiler
WORST
Being called up to hanger, open space, direct fire from 3 sides

CIC is just great. If command couldn't evac before the ayys landed, thenSD is NOT going to happe .
Commander Joseph 'Goliath' Clancy, occaisonal Charlie SL. Widowed father of three. Sufferer of PTSD and way too caring.
Corpswoman Judith 'Mèrci' Clancy, quiet daughter looking for her father.
Warrant Officer Emile Clancy, Strict ex-police chief looking out for his sisters.
Xenomorph Queen 'Pandinus' ruler of the Alpha Hive. Unusually diplomatic.
R'ka Us'Tribi Serpent Trapper, hateful predator. "FUCKING SERPENT BASTARDS KILLED MY BROTHERS".

Right. They can hold better if they have Boiler/Crusher. The one below held by Crusher and Queen screech + hug and won due to Queen screech + hug too gud and low marine count at this point.

Best:

medbay bang ontop of surgery. Just causes mass panic by doctors and wounded leading to lots of FF and lack of organisation Or CIC as you instantly destroy command communications.

Worst

East of alpha and bravo prep, only landed there once but if they are holding briefing its a shooting gallery with no way out
Mainly play - SL , SG , SO

A half assed heroic that plagiarizes all his war speeches

All crash sites were redone. I'm sure there's still some subtleties on what part of the ship it lands in and what it destroys, but it should be less brutal than being walled in on landing

Was 2 boilers (1 was me)a prae, rav and crusher. Basically had a 3 tile wide alley of grenades, mounted smartgun and auto turret to run into.

We had no other way to go except down
