They’ll hit the field a bit slower, shifting the early engagement balance of power more towards the Soviets side towards a balanced point, while also delaying the fast LV a bit more. Overall this will make stabilizing the early game for Soviets until the T70 hits easier and actually doable.
It’s also invalid to say Osttuppen are picked for the early game and should be good. Noone minds them being good, people mind them being too good to the point of being game breaking. Nothing can justify how OP they are vs soviets now.
It’s an excellent change that the game desperately needs. The issue is some people have no concept of reality and don’t know what they’re talking about (aka don’t nerf Osttruppen themselves).
Please quit that tone and stop try to gaslight me about current balance state. If you are in mood to be passively aggressive against people who are experiencing different opinions than you and you see them as ridiculous, try atleast be ironic just like I am trying to be against Katitof, because he/she cannot be treated differently.
This is a quiet cheap move to increase value of your opinion by telling "people say". Please speak for yourself or give a direct quote.
Current balance state is (of course) far away from perfect and in my personal opinion worse than before heavy tank meta nerf because of less doctrinal variety, but here is nothing to run circles in room and saying that is should be fixed "asap". Game was rigged from the start, Relic cannot normally balance any game they made, CoH2 is masterpiece compared, for example, to Dawn of War. Game is playable, it has issues. Every time during to things I mentioned below somebody gets to be in a loser corner, this time it is soviets. Every faction were there, some were more than one time.
Now back to topic: you believe, that ostruppen slight nerf will fix things, am I correct?
Is it the only thing in your opinion, which demands correction, so game is perfectly balanced?
If it is not, how do you believe this change will affect other issues? "Not affect at all" is also an answer, just curious.
Last and the most important question, which looks offtopic. What is a best type of influence: rewarding or punishing? If both, than what comes first?
