The question here is if the balance team will follow what the poll says or if they're going to do what they want anyway.
I have the feeling the balance team created their own monster by constantly nerfing anything valuable on USF. Players are reduced to find whatever cheese they can do to keep up with the game path.
Scott and Pathfinder are perfectly fine on their own, Scott is even under performing by itself, but together they can do well vs players that are simply following the meta and don't try to counter it.
I've just watch a game on 2vs2 where the OKW player did exactly nothing special vs a perfectly executed Pathfinder into Scott gameplay, the player just followed its standard T1 kubel, 3 volks into 1 hmg 1 lieg then a forwarded T3 even knowing he has the vision range disadvantage, to build 2xObers.
He lost the T3 to a single atgun supported by 1 Scott and 1 AAHT but it didn't really force him to think about strategy, nope he re-built his T3 and get a command panther. By that time the USF player had 4 scott and didn't even equipped his pathfinder with zook.
Imagine buidling 4 scott and 4 pathinder, having 0 snare, mine, Atgun (was decrew/destroy) or zook or even a Jackson and your opponent still try to win you by the sheer number of his infantry supported by raks.
The command Panther lasted like 2 or 3 minutes vs Pathzook and then it was just a long agony until the surrender.
Note that even in that condition OKW player never had any manpower issue, this faction is just floating manpower like human on the dead sea.
