Orks, Their units are though and stikkbombas are among the best units in the game.

Providing you know how to use them. SM Termies are decent as well. Providing you learn how to play SM right.

Space Marine Terminators were retardedly good until they removed their leveling capabilities. Now they are decent, but no longer any murder machines you can rely on to turn a battle with their own weight.

Gawd i remember when they introduced lightning claws as an upgrade. They were truly ridiculous. The sm player proportion jumped rapidly.

As Doelago says they're not so ridiculous anymore. Powerful if used right but no longer an auto-include and games arn't sm players just teching for termies as fast a possible.

With Orks is it best to go with shootas or choppas? I tried both at the same time and got the feeling you need to put emphasis on one or the other.

Orks die in droves. A single Tactical Squad can easily take down 90% of an charging boys squad before they get into CC, so its better to put emphasis on one or the other. One or two shoota squads are always good, especially if they have that upgrade weapon, where as you often need three or four Choppa squads to make a large dent.

But with Orks the tactic is to rush forth Nobs, and a truckload of them.

Are Nobz tier 3? I only tried two matches with them and both time I got shouted at and eventually kicked for being a noob. So I ended up up just going back to chaos.

the game is okay. Multiplayer is fine but their are a lot of asshats that kill the fun of the game, the exception is the last stand. Single players is mediocre and single player in multiplayer maps is absolutely a fucking joke.

So if you like survival games with one hero character, than this game is worth getting... but its also expensive as fuck for such a small feature.

Nobs aren't an end all solution. They are powerful but they aren't the right choice in all situations. Besides SM's are expensive to reinforce killing a single SM early game is a big deal.

They also can't be knocked down or suppressed.
