|They really only needed the titan|
Well with the new release of the 40k expansion Escalation players can now take those same super heavies into standard 40k games.
Now in my mind this is a terrible idea. I play alot of video games and a recent issue that has been gripping the industry (and community) is the notion of pay to win. Pay to win is where people pay real money for in-game advantages that people who don't pay money don't have access to, making those who pay alot harder to beat. What Escalation does is bring pay to win to the table top. Oh sure anyone can field a super heavy, as long as they have the money to have bought on first.
What this does is give a distinct advantage to gamers who have titans and super heavies, It allows them to field them more often and win more often. I also would assume that it would cause the sales of super heavies to go up as people try and level the playing the field.
My advice is to refuse to play against a super heavy unless you have one, it is boring to watch you units get mowed down by something you cant even touch, let alone hope to damage. And don't feel the need to go out and buy a super heavy just because of Escalation, buy one when you actually want one. Until next time
