Novax above Yolona

0

If you order the novax satellite to stop attacking (so it stops moving around) and move-order on yolona, it will intercept the nuke and die (without killing anything below). Is this a feature or a bug?

Replay ID: 17200258.

Haven't tested with other nuke launchers.

Provided the satellite dies it was deemed fine to intercept a nuke. As the cost of an anti (3600) is less then the cost of rebuilding a new satellite (10k)

also the Novax has a Random drop vector so you cant easily predict where it will fall

You don't have to kill novax for this trick. You can check the replay.

If the Novax is allowed to intercept nukes maybe it could be listed as a feature of the unit in the description or added to the wiki so it can be more clear it is not an exploit but rather a feature.

the topic has already been discussed previously with both the balance and moderation team, you can contact any balance team member if you think there're issues with this situation.
