I'm just hypothesising at this second but I can't decide what to put on the big boys. Assuming you would run other warlord/reaver or just 2 reavers what are people's usual combos? What do you see? Lots of close combat or just gun death? Blast templates or direct fire etc.

One thing I face recently and found very nasty was titans taking all of the plasma weapons they could. It's expensive, but the guns have long range and excellent to-hit rolls, able to take on any target. On turns 1 and 3 everything fires, causing much pain. On turns 2 and 4 (if there is one) everything Marshals (since their weapons are Slow Firing). The titans can easily do a single move each turn for no loss of firepower, and the marshalling makes it very hard to kill a meaningful number of Titans.

That's a good point. I was reluctant to consider plasma on the grounds that its slow but if you combine with marshall that makes all sorts of sense. I guess you could focus on supporting an assault if your shields were ok.

Alot of folks tend toward bulking up titans for CC with Laser Burners and CC weapons. Other folks tend toward plasma or TLDs. I think it's usually best to focus a titan. So arm it for AP or AV or WE/RA killing.

I wonder if the landing pad option is properly utilised. Being able to move and fire without needing LOS would seem a fantastic option.

I've found a warhound with two inferno guns to be fantastic at flushing out infantry from cover or just plainly slaughtering loads of infantry. The way barrages work in E:A + the fast speed of the warhound, means that the infernos short range is not that big a deal in the end.
