So I saw that there was a "Favorite Animal" thread, so here is one for the brave men and (oversexualized) women who fight on foot. I will put up a poll soon, but I'll start with my favorite infantry:

Dustrider Venom Thrower. They're harder to obtain, but serve the same role as archers. They just do it better, because they do more damage than archers of the same level, do area damage and of course poison the enemy. They also look pretty sweet and since they're dustriders, they can build structures.

Your turn.

I like the design of the Dragon Clan Ninja and the Norsemen Jetpack Warrior. I also like the Venom Thrower - the masked guy in the intro video does the unit justice I think

The problem is that without the modifications CEP and Mirage all three units aren't that effective. The Venom thrower got officially weakend with patch 1.05 (boosterpack) so he is not that good like he used to be in 1.0 and 1.01 - the aforementioned mods have partly changed this back and are still adding to make the units more useful. The Jetpack Warrior can now fly and attack air units or ambush enemy bases for example

That's funny... I have never used Taslow as a Norsemen before... Something I still need to try.

But they weakened Venom Throwers? What did they do to them? And how much does the boosterpack restore them?

Wow... that told me a lot. Thanks. In fact, I may even not update my game after all. Pretty funny, now their melee is even stronger than their ranged attack. Any chance you can tell me how much the CEP or Booster or whatever it was re-empower Venom Throwers?

AyCe must answer for CEP changes and Henry for Mirage. You can make adjustments by editing the techtree file with an editor like notepad.exe - but you have to share the edited file with others in case you want to play multiplayer with them

Well: If you want campaign, I recommend patching the game and playing WITHOUT boosterpack. For Mutliplayer you could try CEP or Mirage.

Not patching because of a change in stats is a silly reason. Patches are there to fix your game, not to leave you with overpowered units - which the throwers were, otherwise they would not have got nerfed.

absolutely true

what Tric wanted to say (probably), that throwers got a special ability (mirage), which prevents enemy units to be healed for a short time, if they are hit by dr thrower

Ok, and we are back to this again. I am incapable of patching my game. Now that that's out of the way, I'll just confirm I would if I could, and I love how deliciously off-topic this went. Killers or berserkers, anyone?

killers, provided you can hide them behind some big mammoth or so, if the enemy doesn't spot him or can't click attack, he'll have a bad time

so killers are like dark templars: they can cause big damage only if the enemy doesn't know about them (mirage: they can turn into stone statues - can't move or attack, but they suffer minimal damage and regain health over time)

berserker: they are very good units, but mostly at early stages of the game - good to rush enemies bases with berserkers, and while the enemy deals with them, you can build a massive army in your base (rhinos, mammoths, etc.)
(mirage: they get additional attack points with each kill)

Cole-Berserker-Drop, just perfect. Kill the workers, fight the army and replace every dead berserker in ac with a mammoth/rhino instantly. Then let your army rush through the weakened base. Delicious.

Kill the workers? I don't see that as working too well because berserkers just do whatever they want to. With the help of Triceratops, I just got the boosterpack and I'd say I sure like the Flamethrowers. They look pretty sweet, and they murder infantry if you have a few.

An early attack-berserker strategy works wonders ;)
