In my experience REngis take much more casualties, stock and vett'd, than Rifles and Penals even making use of cover at every opportunity, waiting to engage so they aren't automatically targetted etc. I feel like this aspect is overlooked in general on the forums where stats are too important imo. So I am replying to your original with context and the post here. While UKF might have a strong 'AT Inf' squad to make up for Fireflies 'weakness' I dont think it works that game in actual gameplay, at all.
Discussing the uniqueness of Allied TDs and what they bring personally I feel is already obvious, thus doesn't need to be stated. Nut we will since thats where the topics gone; Firefly is the toughest and most versatile of the TD's. In typical UKF fashion, this is a trend among the faction. You can play how you want (USF's aggression and mobility vs Soviets support style) but you must realize the sacrifices to get to choose this. The ONLY way I think the Firefly could be considered as weak is the muni cost of Tulips, but seeing how potent they COULD be justifies this. They are very strong initiation and counter initiation for the REngi's which, again personally, I feel is under utilized correctly by many people I see playing.
No, it is not.
