    he federation is adapting to bugs, but the bugs are adapting faster.

    ya but it's wrong to say the mobile infantry is totally incompetent. if they were they would just try the same things over and over. in the 3rd film (even if it's trash), we see that the MI have learned to use rank and file tactics against waves of bugs along with cycling their shooting so they have a wave of bullets mixed with grenades.

    CONSIDERING THE CIRCUMSTANCES, the mi did pretty well at big K considering it was a massive fleet fuck up (in the book dunno about the movie), the main char didnt even die!

    and then AFTER that they completed ALL the objectives they had on all their other planets

    the federation actually adapted to the bug's pretty damn quick. as soon as they found out they couldn't just send MI down to fight the bugs 1 on 1, the sky marshal resigned, the new sky marshal said 'okay we glass them and the MI kill the stragglers'. hence 'fleet glasses the planet, MI mops up'. also if the MI and fed were incompetent at war why would they seek to interrogate a potential source of intel on how 2 fight bog better??? 

  3. On another note; I would like to turn everyone's attention to Pundii's post. He deliberately went out of his way to address real concerns about the faction, yet here we are, debating the armor and health. Something we've been debating for the better part of two years. Do some thinking, please.

    From reading this, it is quite clear that Marauders categorically should never have been ran as tanks

    While the Aegis Mark II suit is well-armoured, and can virtually brush off light-to-medium fire, heavy weapons (i.e emplacements or anti-material) will dent and eventually pierce the suit's plates with sustained fire.

    Likewise, the Aegis Mark II can survive light anti-personnel grenades and mines, but heavier anti-armour weapons can and will damage it.

    Now, I'm no weapons expert, but if someone were to unload 60-70 .308 rounds into something, no matter how "bullet proof" it is, that armour is going to be shredded. If not, the person inside is still going to be very sore.

    . Since, if we're honest, the HL2 NPCs can NOT kill Marauders for shit. They have way, WAY too much health and armour.

    TL;DR, I'm of the opinion that the new armour stats, 100HP and 100AP(Or 200, idk) is more accurate to the effectiveness of Marauders.
