If GSF ships were Game of Thrones characters... (TV spoilers through season 4)

Since the last thread was such a hit...

Blackbolt (T1 Scout) - Oberyn Martell - agile and nimble, but prone to sudden explosive death

Flashfire (T2 Scout) - Jamie Lannister - quick, lethal, and invincible, until he suffered a grievous nerf; still feared and cursed for his dishonorable past

Bloodmark (T3 Scout) - Loras Tyrell - beautiful to look at and skilled in tournaments, but not as effective in real battle

StarGuard (T1 Strike) - Robb Stark - the iconic hero, the one everyone roots for, but doomed in the end

Pike (T2 Strike) - Theon Greyjoy - Robb's surrogate brother, overeager to prove his worth; missing expected components (also he's from Pike :P)

Clarion (T3 Strike) - Brienne of Tarth - a skilled and honorable protector, her determination makes her hard to defeat

Quarrel (T1 Gunship) - Braun the Sellsword - more concerned with winning than having an honorable, fair fight; tires opponents out until he can make the killing blow

Jurgoran (T3 Gunship) - Jon Snow - a bastard of mixed lineage, but capable and adaptable in many forms of combat

Rampart (T1 Bomber) - The Mountain - slow and heavily armored, with such strength that he ignores most defenses

Sledgehammer (T3 Bomber) - The Hound - slow and heavily armored, but faster than his brother; has an asymmetrical, ungraceful appearance

Legion (T2 Bomber) - Daenerys Targaryen - her real power comes from her pets; takes her a long time to get where she's going

Dustmaker (T2 Gunship) - Joffrey Baratheon - pretty decent at killing helpless targets from range, but hopeless in a real fight; everyone hates him

These are awesome, and this may be the only good post in the forums in the past week. Kudos.

Well, 2.6 was a pretty dire nerf to Evasion + addition of mines and drones. T2 Scouts went from being invincible to just overpowered :P And who knows, maybe the next balance patch will finish the chop.

But it's amazing you took a silly joke thread I wrote in five minutes as an invitation for ship balance debate. Come on man. Not every thread is a battle that you must try to win.

this isn't a ship balance debate, it's game of thrones character appropriateness debate. far more important.

Well, Jamie had to be in the list, and I couldn't think of any ship which suffered as big a nerf as the pre-2.6 Flashfire And ... thematically it just works in my opinion :P Especially the cursing.

Mangler and 2.7 barrel roll comes to mind. But I agree, Jaime fits perfectly as the battlescout.

"When you play the Game of GSF, you either win or you die. There is no middle ground."

"GSF isn't a pit. GSF is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, they cling to the faction or the devs or premades. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."
