Mainly Balance reasons. We discuss it and we couldn't agree of how would it work and it was a big concern that this unit will turn into overpower unit. It would require a lot of time and more than 1 patch to balance it proparely. For example as british emplacement it sohuld have brace for consistency. Brace in emplacement that can fire from half of the map would make it almost impossible to counter. It was consider as an alternative unit in advantance emplacement regiment. I guess we end with conclusion that it's bigger risk than reward.
As for the future we will have to see, but sadly i doubt that we gonna see a new unit.
I may not replay a lot on this forum but i can assure you that we do read most of those posts and yes, we discuss many of those topics in the meetings.
Thank you very much!
Yes, I agree that brace would be questionable on this unit. If it does get brace, then it would need to have a shorter range than other howitzers (but still longer than heavy mortar barrage), so the builder would be forced to put it close to the frontline.
