Excuse my bad english

Hello

I am proposing a bunch of alien downgrades (And some additions with the rewrite). lets just get into it


Xenomorph profile rewrite

The 8-A aliens are from a crossover, AVP, of which is basically alternate canon/non-canon that isnt even connected to anything in the alien universe, thus it should not be used. Seperating the xenomorph profiles so that one covers the main canon, and the other covering AVP could work. The rewrite is here

One Armed Xenomorph downgrade to 9-B possibly Far Higher

The scan of it 'hurting' the queen looks more like it startled the queen more the hurt it, with it having no cuts or scratches whatsoever. Considering that it survived being hit by a spaceship, and being hit by a giant machine, the far higher is warranted.


Comic Big Chap downgrade to 9-C likely Higher

Dennis wasn't even killed by the strike, it should still be 9-C for killing him via headbite though, the 'likely higher' for its large size.

AVP is not canon to Alien? I thought it was important to the lore?
It takes place in 2004, while Prometheus, in which the Xenomorphs haven't been created yet, takes place in 2093. It used to be canon, but these movies decanonized it. I recall hearing about The Predator decanonizing it too for the other side, but confirming that would require watching that disgrace of a movie again, so I'm good.

Yeah, I can agree that the 8-A+ calculation is iffy for a multitude of reasons. Reason number one, blowing up ships and vehicles are often done via chain reactions; a 9-B rocket can easily blow up a 9-A sized tank by igniting its engine. Not to mention the gasoline produces a fireball radius that makes it look like a Tier 8 explosion when it's far from it IRL.

Second, explosions that happen in environments with less gravity than Earth are no where near as potent as they appear; since there's less gravity to force an explosion closed. That's especially true if a ship blows up in outer space where the gravity is 0; which makes all blast radius methods of an exploding ships and bombs completely unquantifiable by nature that explosions would just soar endlessly until it hits something or gets close to gravitational fields.

To add to that, Plasmacasters never cause explosions. At least, that I can think of. They just blow a hole through their targets.

Maybe we should try and get a calc for the Alien Queen and similar instead of just giving them 8-C? Idk.

ehh if someone is up to it they can try, I think its still warranted though via its other feats though imo

What would we change the stats to then?

Finally someone else notice this big issue with the scaling, i made a thread similar to this one.
Before this gets closed, what should we do for Predator?
The scaling with the Xenomorph Queens is not longer valid, meaning Tier 8-A need to be deleted, unless they have other feats on that level.
