Excellent guide. Though this is probably beyond the scope of the guide, you may want to state how the "other" kicker(TS/DTail) compares to the DTalon'er(short point form, eg. TS/DTail is weaker against immunes, DTalon more versatile, strengths and weaknesses of both). Looking forward to the final product.
PS. Sorry, but I'll have to remove the AB link. Maybe you could pick out a few specific tips for the Kicker and incorporate it into the Strategy section(with due credit of course).
Thanks. I am almost considering linking to all testing sources somewhere near the end of the guide... but in the end, I'm not sure it would be worth the effort. So far as I know, everything in the guide technical-wise is 100% correct.
Bad news... the more I work on my guide at the AB... the more I keep finding good resources all over the place - many of them threads too long to include in the guide. Some have counterparts on this site (also linked) and some don't. Right now I'm struggling with whether or not I'll even be able to do a repost here when I get the guide in a "finished product" kind of form.
Drat. Well, I have a recent ruling from Elly that may help things slightly. Links to competitive sites are fine, so long as that specific link isn't to a forum, and is to a page that contains a resource that isn't available here. So stuff like the German speed calculator, block calculator @ the LL(though I believe that's outdated?) and the like are fine. Direct forum links are still out, though...the only possible workaround is if the guide was hosted on someone's homepage or a D2 site without a forum, but I doubt that's possible for every guide.
That'll help some. Quite a bit, actually. I'll do some more intensive search later.
How about Baron's Bazaar? It is a very small site, but a forum, and could be viewed as competative. I'd rather not link to the b.net forums (where it is also posted) because of the many "forums down" issues it has been having.
