This... "Bunkers: Due to survivability issues with 4-man squads all Wehrmacht bunkers now have a forward retreat point toggle."...
is actually a good idea.

You cant fool me. I'm fool-proof. In fact I'm pretty sure all other comments except mine are fake. Just wanted to let the OP that I'm on to you.

Relic is totally out of touch with the community saying that Soviets are fine! Do they even play their own game or just pull numbers out of their ass?

Penals are unstoppable death machines. We thought rifle flamer blobs were bad but now it's like 100x worse with penal flamer blobs burning everything in their path and relic refuses to acknowledge it's even a problem! Penals even counter tanks waaaaaay better than rifles ever could thanks to sachel charge.

Cons are way too versatile too. The ability to build green cover AND upgrade molotovs AND merge?! What next? Are they going to give cons an AT nade too?! Oh wait, they already did!1!!!

Lets not forget about that insane crushing beast the T34/76. Use gren squads to faust: CRUSH. Counter with panzershrecks: CRUSH. Produce an AT gun for the friggin hard counter: CRUSH! Oh, and it's even cheaper than a P4 and if you ever manage to get it low on health it just RAMS YOUR TANK IN THE ASS LIKE THE HUGE DICK THAT IT IS. How are you even supposed to stop this machine?!

And that is only the worst offenders. Don't even get me started about the maxpin, the SU(I'm sniping your snipers)85, siamese twin snipers, the katyusha with like 10x more rockets than the stuka, and infantry erasing shocks in an M3! The only unit soviets have that is even close to balanced is the M42 at gun and it STILL overperforms vs medium tanks.

WTF Relic get your act together!!!!!

Due to survivability issues with 4-man squads all Wehrmacht bunkers now have a forward retreat point toggle.

this sounds amazing. i personally dont think that this ability will survive that long but hopefully it does.

LeFH and Pak43 Emplacements
LeFH and Pak43 suffered from powerful ability counters due to their inability to move after firing. Half-tracks are now able to connect to these units and re-locate them for a small fuel cost.

well well, lets see.

at all you cant really say that the concerns of the community are blended out, at least they read them and tried a first approach. thats positive

Can't believe some people are so gullible that they are answering this sincerely EVEN after it's been derided as an April Fools joke.

the gamedata for the 4 commanders have been into the gamefiles since months my fella.those who check the files from time to time know that. i guess they should have been already released but they decided not to.refering to that japanes stuff i must say very lol, the resolution of the images and the quality of the commander portrait doesnt fit into those relic officially released in their know-your-commander-blogs.

Soviets were a fitting climax punchline.

Cheers. I got to them after trying to think up stuff for the other 4 factions, and that line just struck me as perfect considering the nature of most balance threads lately :D

This has got to be the greatest update all year! Suddenly OKW and OST are now sexy to play!

Edit: Lul, got me good.
I knew something was off when I read about the soviets
