Best Covie Leader

I like using the brute chieftain, as the brutes are very powerful when in sniper towers, his hammer has a stun ability that owns and makes him actually useful when not in leader power mode, and his leader power's explosion does enough damage to kill any other covie leaders very quickly.

I hate to break it to ya, but not that many people play with the bc. Most people play arby in 2v2 and prophet in dm. He's just so underpowered in my opinion...

I apologize, but this was meant to be a poll, and I know this came out opinionated, but I must have accidentally X'ed this page out when loading the poll. Anywho, I play as the Brute Chieftan, and actually win most of my matches, or at least get a crapload of points when I lose, usually more than the winner. I hate how the arbiter can't target that well, and the prophet is an air unit, making him weak to vampires and wolverines.

I'd like to play as the arbiter, so if anyone has any strategies to help me, that would be kinda cool.

Lol that's fine. Stuff's really going to change after this title update. The arbiter's probably going to get hit pretty badly with this update too.

My favorite strategy with the arbiter is to upgrade him fully, specifically invisible. Then I train about 10 locust and give them overdrive ability. I send the arbiter behind the enemy base and drop the locust in. If you overdrive the turrets, they go down quickly and then you start on the base. When units show up, go into rage mode and hope your locust can hold their own.

It works best if they have infantry or if you really want to destroy a base, such as in deathmatch.

Haha to be honest I haven't played the game since TU4. I really don't know what has changed strategy wise.

And I normally play deathmatch anyway...

Id say prophet because he has the ability to fly.
Arbitier isnt as good because although the invisible ability is good its only good for scouting and he is only really strong against infantry, and the brute cheiftan is slow and his leader power isnt as accurate.

I always play as Brute Chieftan.
With 3 Star veterancy he can walk into a battle and wipe everyone out without his health budging even a quad Mac Blast does nothing to him. His vortex isn't a very good leader power until you get the third upgrade. It can wipe armies excessively by building up damage per second and eventually blow up to deal more damage then a Mac Blast.

He must be on about someone else.. The arbiter I know usually rips through whole armies.. but I don't prefer him.
