A few weeks ago I played a three-way battle against a chaos player and a blood angels player, and they were both brothers. I don't know if it was that they were brothers and wanted to gang up on me or that they never played necrons before and were terrified of them. Either way they sent all the berzerkerkers,tanks, and Chaos Defiler battle cannon fire all on my necrons. What is it that freaks our opponants out so bad that they gotta resort to low blows and gang-beating the crap out of our necrons.
Just about everything in the cron codex... They fear us deep down inside.
1. Metal skeletal terminator clones that never truly die.
2. they stand back up 50% of the time so theoretically you can only kill half as much per turn
3. The necrons masters are twisted beings bent on the torture of all mortals in the universe and unluckily for the mortals, the C'tan are gods, so... they're gonna do it whether the mortals like it or not.
Its happened to me too. It'll probably happen to all of us at least once. I think that the hype has gotten to them, so they probably are gonna do this until they realise that necrons aren't as powerful as the rumors make them out to be.
All in all, it was because they've never faced necrons before.
It will pass in time, child.

Darkeldar struggled when they were taking fire...my heavies destroyed tanks, my immortals took down Inps and my Nightbringer pummeled the SM...they stood no chance...they fear me to this day!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! and i m playing them 2morrow, so wish me luck...i'll post the result here after i ...win or lose..
"You think you know fear? You haven't seen the relentless advance of death against you! You think you know pain? You haven't felt the liquid steel of the cyborgs' blade as they silently scream their pleasure in your face. It doesn't matter if you are human, orc, or any other mutated creature in this Universe; they killed us all once and they'll do it again. They want to do it again. Their number is Legion; their name is Death...who are we to get in their way?!"
thee way battles and free-for-all are never fair, just expect it. If you want a fair fight, go 2on2 or 1on1. Alot of people fear necrons for good reason, they are a powerfull army in the right hands.

Lol, another reason people fear/dislike us so much is that they can also be a powerful army in the wrong hands. All you need to beat some armies (if the other player is rather new) is a Res.Orb and some lucky WBB rollsOriginally Posted by justinb67
"I am the architect of fate!"
Necrons are feared for some reason I don't know. I hate playing noobs on a 3-way battle because they both gang up on me and when I beat them (they are noobs) it only helps the necron reputation...
And the funny thing was that in the end I still had a little less than half my army left (lucky WB rolls. But by the very end of the game the chaos player had conceded and the marine player was seriously crippled so I won. But after the game they declared cheese on my necrons and every other necron army out there.
Oh man, I just saw my first necron army today. Luckily I didn't have to face it. Necrons are scary. That bloody pyramid thing freaks me out. So I thought it was really funny when I found this topic. Seems like Necrons just scare people.
However, the guy was nice enough to let me read his codex. Strangely enough, I didn't feel so afraid after browsing through it.
Ya right..... Necrons arent that powerful against a reasonably skilled player. the 'lith is gonna go down by turn two whether u like it or not, i mean that thing draws more fire than wych cults in raiders :o. Aneways all you need to beat crons are a basic understanding of how they work, the mistake most people make is to go after the things they think will dmg them the most, like immortals, flayed 1s, and destroyers, and while these things can be a pain if you get their troops in CC then say hello to phase out, i dont give a sh**&^t if you are ruled by gods or not I WILL HUNT DOWN YOU GODLESS XENOS TO THE ENDS OF THE GALAXY AND BACK, NONE OF YOU SHALL ESCAPE MY RIGHTEOUS BLADE, THE HEAD OF YOUR SO CALLED STAR GODS SHALL MOUNT THE EVERGROWING PLAQUE BEHIND THE GOLDEN THRONE NOT ONE OF THEM SHALL ESCAPE THE CLEANSING FIRE OF EXTERMINATUS FEAR ME CREATURES OF METAL AND WIRE YOUR DOOM IS AT HAND FOR I REPRESENT THE ORDO MALLEUS AND YOU SHALL FALL. .......... srry for the rant *cough heretic xenos*cough. :lol:
