Lol. Every factions has that then.
OKW: Full Volks, 221 opening, Full Fusiliers, Sturmpio spam, Kubel\Spio duo
Ost: AssGrens, MG spam, OSttrupen, Grens, Sniper(s)
Usf: Pathfinders, Rifles, RE spam, WC51, Assault Engineers
UKF: MG spam, IS spam, Assault Sections, UC
HOW is that different? That's the dumbest point here.
OKW: Full volks or full fusiliers. Kubel is not a game changer.
Ost: Osttruppen\MG spam\Grens\Fast PGs
USF: Pathfinders\Rifles, WC51 (broken rapemachine btw)
UKF: IS\UC, AIC\UC, IC
Now stop being overprotective looking for betrayals of the Rodina, and understand that other factions in general are predictable and it doesnt matter what you do, you can rely on the fact that your standart build would be most likely enouth to fight it.
Only soviets, can fuck you up early game by simple fact that they chose something that you didnt see was coming. But its mostly OKW situation, because of its problems, not soviet ones.
If you just want to hear or prove that soviets are UP\balanced from me or prove this to me, then it would be better to end this conversation right here. I'm not stating they are OP, nor that they are balanced, nor that they are UP.
You know why? Because SOV has shortcomings that can and should be exploited by the opponent. Meaning that it has a weakness. And being reliant on commanders is already a sign that's it's not all perfect.
It signs nothing. Relic made faction in this way. If you dont like it, create time machine and tell Relic from the past that their concept is shit.
Their shortcomings are covered by commanders, because again, faction works this way, if you dont like picking commander and then tell stock soviets have shotcommings, then its your own problem at this point. They do have problems, but it has nothing to do with how faction works, nor this problems should not be adressed at some point.
I didnt say they dont have weakness and neither I said they are OP. They are in general more balance then UKF\USF in terms of powerspikes. But it doesnt change the fact that they are some shitty aspects and blandly OP\poorly balanced aspects.
