Default Who sucks most?

The objective of this poll is to see who sucks most not who would win.



Just a question by the way has anyone actually seen starship troopers.

Are we talking game play or fluffwise?

In game play the colonial marines would be best, cause there where only a dozen of them and they killed scores of aliens who are the equivalent of tyranids.

Fluffwise the IG beats down any of these guys.

No I mean which dies fastest,(fluffwise).

I personally think mobile infantry. 100,000 died in one hour of fighting (in one battle). In starship troopers.

What Starship Troopers are you talking about? The book ones or the movie ones?

That doesn't make any sense. It's like saying WW2 paratroopers were piss-poor soldiers in comparison to modern day infantry, because many more soldiers died in Normandy than have died in Iraq. How can you measure fighting forces against one another when they are so vastly different in terms of composition and the enemy they fight?

I would agree with Mr. Tom.

Every army and their different configuration has their own strength and weaknesses. It's not the matter of 'Who suck the most' or 'Who's the weakest of all'. The actual question you might want to ask is: 'Who do I make the most from this lost' or 'Am I putting the right stuff into this kind of kind of army'.

Furthermore, the question is quite vague and you can't compare between movies and the 40000 universe. Maybe trying to put into context of 40000, yes. But still every army and it's configurations has it's own weaknesses and strength. Also, it's also the player itself whether he/she knows hoe to use the army well or not.

It would have to be the movie. The way the mobile infantry fight in the book has very little in common with the Imperial Guard.

Rebel soldiers, definitely. Although if fighting with Jedi, the Luck Of The Protagonist does tend to wear-off on them, giving them a tiny bit more chance of surviving.

Starship Troopers win over the Guard; as they have the same ships as the Argon in the game 'X2: The threat', they don't kill Tau (though they might if they could) and their infantry weapons run on something more than 2 AA batteries :P. Although the Guard's soviet-like commissars are a refreshing change in style to the 'Americans in Space' that the Marines and STroopers are.
