I don't even know where to start.
Pioneer / Combat Engineers did not have a habit of chasing down ENTIRE full health squads and killing them regardless of armour type. Flammenwerfers with the dual flamers would just flat out terrorize entire armys even on retreat.
Orly. You must be playing vs AI if you have never seen Flamers in M3 raping retreaters, or the KV8.
Comparing the M5 to the Halftrack is absolute stupidity, why in the hell would you build an M5 when you have the option of a T70 for a similar amount of fuel? Far too late in the game to even condier being "similar" to the Halftrack in anything but cost.
So in your imaginary world, comparing cost is "absolute stupidity"...
Ill tell younwhats absolute stupidity. Comparing AC to M3 is. Because the difference is absolutely stupid.
The M3 needs to take more damage from small arms fire as it's mounted mgs currently outrange Grenadiers / Pioneers which means it's extremley hard to cause damage to them.
So be ause the 50cal rapes infantry in both firepower and range, your solution is to increase its dmg from small arms?
But you just clearly pointed out that small arms CANT EVEN REACH IT and GET EATEN ALIVE BY 50CAL.
Logic, your suggestion has NONE related to the premises you yourself stated.
Do you actually play both factions, or just Osteer?
Yes, and I supremely doubt you do. I bet you also mostly play non 1v1.
You sound like someones just taken your dummy out (IE Flammenwerfer).
You sound like a Sov fanboi with no objectivity.
Did you honestly believe the ability to chase down and kill squads outright regardless of there health with a cheap unit (80/25) was within acceptable balance?
Nice how your blatant bias left out the 120 Muni cost. Probably because you didnt know the exact number and didnt want to appear stupid by giving themwrong one, but are too lazy to go check it. Furthermore, if youve seen my hundreds of posts, dozens of them mention reducing flame retreat dmg, and that flame is broken ACROSS THE BOARD.
Flame HT dmg is stupid on retreat. M3 flame dmg is stupid on retreat. KV8 dmg is stuoid on retreat.
But nice try at false implications.
Perhaps we should buff the AC's accuracy on COH against retreating Infantry so zero squads can escape, should be fun!
The funny thing about you here, is that ACs dmg IS shit not only against retreaters but standing units.
You just completely disqualified yourself from even the pretence of informed discussion or objectivity.
And again, hyperbole and falsemimplication that anyone, anywhere, has suggested this ridiculous premise.
Notice the caustic, personal, insulting, sarcastic, exaggerating and ultimately discussion destroying tone and content. How does your own medicine taste?
Maybe when you learn how to discuss with respect to others, in a mature and impersonal manner about impersonal matters, you will receive the same courtesy in return.
I can see why you call yourself "Hissy", because your posts read like a 12yr olds hissy-fit!
You get one chance at a civil response or you go right on my block list.
