Even with ost buffs, they are still the weakest faction in game. Scout car still needs to be raised up to 30-35 fuel and get an armor and damage upgrade for the 2 cm. Hell the damage boost and armor upgrade can have a fuel cost of 15-20 to make it fair that way you aren't over paying for the shitty mg scout car. Or it could have the 2cm by default. Nobody uses them without the turret, why is it there? Just to add more muni upgrades?
FHT still worthless.
Stug not what it should be. T4 is still slightly overpriced.
All of ostheers teching is grossly overpriced in terms of manpower compared to other factions. On top of that they need to unlock the battlephase AND build the structure.
T2: 200 mp + 120 mp + 60 fuel
T3: 200 mp + 160 mp + ??? fuel
T4: 200 mp + 160 mp + 110 fuel?
Assuming if you skip t3 maybe you are still paying 720-880 manpower to fully tech up. This is why tiger spam is a thing. Its retarded in comparison to the other factions. Even only building t2 and stopping is sort of expensive relative to the other factions.
Okw at max pays 600 manpower if they build all trucks and doesn't even need to build anything. Can't remember USF but they get free units with teching and don't have to build shit, so its not that high. Soviets usually only build t1 or t2 and bank on call ins ( I dont blame them, t3/t4 pales in comparison call in meta ) So soviets usually only pay 160 mp - 400 mp if they build a second structure on teching.
This gives every other faction such a huge advantage early on and over the course of the game its ridiculous.
Now I know what some of you might be thinking. That its to make them different, but this is a touch to far. Buffing ost units will not fix this is an exact problem.
So without further adieu I propose.
- All battlephases now cost 120mp
- Battlephase 1 fuel cost reduced by 10
- Battlephase 2 fuel cost increased by 20
- Battlephase 3 cost reduced by 20
Overall t2 for ost comes quicker, t3 comes later, and t4 comes quicker. Also manpower isn't sucked dry in early-mid game as badly but still are paying the most overall.
