# Will TML ever be balanced?

@TheWheelieNoob the mavor reference was just a joke, I was interested to see how it would compare to the most powerful unit in the game mass for mass, no need to rage over it lol.

let me ask you this question

if a tml is mainly used to kill t2 mexes at 2000hp why does it do 5000 damage

is there an calculable reason that it does 5000 damage or is it just a randomly generated number?

TML is a meme

it does 6k damage so you can 2 shot any unupgraded commander

In practical games you won’t kill a uef acu with 2 tmls because regen happens every tick.

Uef4life, 6 million mass in snoops is 500,000 snoops or 1 mil DPS

Thanks for the numbers on Corsair. I still think it's mostly fine and definitely a excellent addition to the game over ta.

I still maintain the primary reason TML is OP is because of overkill destroying the wreck of t2 mexes.

Regarding the TML overkilling t2 mex, i don't think this is OP at all because it is easily counterable with tmd. What does make TML OP is the fact that if you have a wide area of targets you need lots of tmd. Same principle with nuke.
Not sure how you would balance this. Maybe increase the required buildpower?

1 Idea would be to increase the loading time for missiles and possibly reduce storage capacity so that it would give the player more time to make TMD over a large area and not lose all t2 mex in 20 seconds.

Increase tmd range

@caliber cybran tml already has a capacity of 4, making it even less is stupid

I have just created a mod that rebalances the tml.

problems with the tml as I see them;

6k damage for very little cost
no risk vs reward factor, if tml doesnt work you risk/lose nothing and can reclaim the tml
tml can be fired way too quickly and kill an opponents whole base in about 10 seconds
