Krogoths - 13 years later and still emasculates the rest of the RTS world.

I'm going to get this out of the way right now, if you're under 16 years old this will probably mean nothing to you. And that's okay, because everyone knows you aren't real gamers anyways. "But but but my first console was a playstation!" Yeah exactly.



Unleashed upon the world in 1997, the Krogoth was and still is the absolute badass of the RTS world. There has never been more of a walking GG I WIN death machine since. Letting your opponent build one of these is probably the biggest fuck up a person can make, second only to installing AOL onto your computer.


I like to think the Core designed the Krogoth to compensate for their extremely small manhoods.



The Krogoth was the Core's special unit in the old school RTS, Total Annihilation, Core expansion. This mofo had an exploding artillery cannon on each arm , two extremely long range homming missile launchers on it's back, and a giant freaking eye laser. All of which could target different things, meaning this guy shot at 5 targets at a time. By far the most badass OP unit in RTS history.

It could even kill a few Marauders.

My daughter's first console was a NES and she's 9. I wasn't about to raise a nub. She has worked her way up to the 360, but she still prefers the dreamcast. I'm so proud of her.

play the new "Tech Anhilation", it has the Super Krogoth (same thing, just bigger and stronger). And an overpowered thing that could beat a few of them at the same time...

Mhm, a Krogoth...

I had fun with this unit since I always chose Arm when playing with my friends, and we used a mod that increased Arm's mobility in exchange for armour and fire power (while doing the exact opposite to the core), which means defeating a Krogoth was basically a war campaign on its own, and sometimes we even had "Krogoth Kill" alliances when playing free for all.

Good times, really.

found my old TA discs the other day, now fully installed on the laptop and i've been logging HOURS AND HOURS on it since. no core contingency expansion packs, but i'd love them just to see the might of a krogoth.

You forgot that they could/can survive SEVEN nuclear blasts in a row.
