Novax died without losing control building?

0

Just played a game and my novax crashed over enemy base, but I didn't lose the building. The novax started rebuilding like a drone back at the main building. Never seen that happen, can T3 arty hit them?

It can get shot by projectiles, i have personally witnessed in my game novax satellite getting shot by a nuke. Very memey.

Yikes, so in a nutshell what has the actual possibility of killing the satellite? Just T3(+) arties?

Does the nuke survive or explode? If it explodes, can it kill anything underneath it?

Both nuke and satellite dies. I don't think anything under nuke got destroyed.

Interesting.

I have two more questions, then.

  1. Does Novax rebuild and relaunch automatically? If so, is there any cost? If not, do you have to destroy and rebuild the building to get the satellite back?

  2. I see using Novax to block/destroy nuke is listed as an exploit. Should it be? Using a satellite to shoot down a nuke seems legit to me.

you can use it to stop the nuke, but you will lose the sat, and will have to rebuild it in the novax center.
The exploit is to kill the nuke by using the lazer to kill the nuke. It will be patched out in the next balance patch anyway.

No, I talked with moderation team and the body blocking is also now an exploit.

Guess I shouldn't have made that post how novax is the ultimate SMD kappa.

Also by now the beam should have been fixed considering long ago there was talk about changing HP values of missiles.

weird i've never seen people abuse that. Like you would need 5 novax center to perma block a T4 nuke on setons for example, and that would take a lot of your attention also.

The thing is, if both nuke and novax are not assisted then novax can block the nuke each time it launches off CD on 20x20 map.
Giving your team 10 minutes to make smd in each base. And forcing opponent to make 2 nukes to get around it.
The mass cost is also in favor of novax netting you 2k mass advantage with each body blocked nuke.

And like I said, mods said it's exploit to block nukes with novax no matter how. Unless you somehow managed to ctrlk satelite over the SML, but that requires a lot of luck due to changes in how the wreck falls now(it sways a lot and basically it's impossible to aim due to RNG implemented)

I'm not saying it's balanced, but it is interesting that one of the things this game sells on is a functional 3D physics engine, where planes can bounce off of shields, etc., but in a few cases we are just saying, "nah, we don't want that."

it can get shot by arty/mavor as well

using arty to shoot down satellites isn't very realistic but missiles are

it's extremely hard to shoot it down with an arty lol,i would say nearly impossible
