You can play the game however you want. But know that one-faction heroes are biased. They all think their faction of choice is weak and the other side is OP. This dark conspiracy has their puppet-master in Relic/balance team/illuminati.
For some reason though, you never hear this from people who play both sides equally.
Never said the other side is OP. Even though I do not play soviets or brits or ostheer, I do play OKW non competitively. Never said USF is UP. It's not a secret that it has huge holes in it's pockets when it comes to dealing with blobs in teamgames. USF infantry is decent, although a muni sink. Biggest "unbalance" comes once obers with vet2 roll out, since they eat vet3 double bar rifles for breakfast. But against every other infantry, quite well balanced. Jackson is the 2nd best TD (I find the firefly to be the best) with good mobility and a good active ability.
AT gun is decent. Not penetrating but wide cone and tracking make up for it. Weapon racks add diversity, and adding double zooks to RE and major is a pretty good medium tank deterrent. The list goes on.
What I do find completely and utterly UP on the USF is the pak howi (after the AOE nerf) and the Scott. Not only do they fill the same role, they both cannot do the one thing that USF needs available as stock. Blob control in teamgames. If they had nerfed the autofire accuracy on the pak howi and buffed the barrage, then you'd get a anti-static weapon. I use the Scott every game, and just last game 2 scotts failed to kill an MG that stayed in one position, did not budge, for the whole duration of both barrages. So I needed to waste time not killing it with the barrage only to waste smoke barrage just to barrage a low hp 2 model MG squad. Every game same thing, always wondering why I even went for the scott. Then I remember I need two scotts to carpet the frontline with smoke. The only thing they are really really great at.
If USF had something to punish Ober (or fussies/pgrens) blobs which laser down infantry, supported by double A-move raketen that mow down any sherman or scott plays, and one stuka in case an MG is there, then USF would have a complete roster.
If you know, do share your knowledge of how to deal with blobs as USF in teamgames non doctrinally. Don't do too much mental gymnastics with unbelievable scenarios though.
