Can we add like 10 MP cost for unit retreat? Then owner of rifle/shreck blob who needs to retreat his blob need to pay extra MP for it. Good player won't do mass retreat anyway.

Mass retreat=losing map control, unless you play OKW or USF(late game here).

The idea is bad and you should feel bad.

I'd say that cost can be adjusted.

i think mp cost would be too much
i suggest a speed debuff
-injured squads need to heal/restock anyway
- blobs are slowed down an can be hit by *stuff*

but all offmap arty needs to be banned in base sector otherwise 50kg bomb will be insanly op

How is 10 MP per squad is too much? You retreat them to reinforce, the cheapest reinforce price AFAIK is 15 MP for 1 soldier and I ask for 10 MP per squad

Blob mass retreating to FRP is a problem, but it isn't way how it should be fixed. Retreat is a core mechanic and shouldn't be touched.

There is already plenty of tools to handle Blobs, what is your problem ?

Why is this thread in Balance section ?

Losing territory is the punishment for mass-retreat... why do you want to add extra manpower cost to something that is already a bad tactical step?

I would rather add -50% reduced dmg against explosives for retreating units in order to compensate for the horrible retreating paths.

1- It should be moved to gameplay (no power here)
2- Idea is bad and you should feel bad (\/) (°,,,°) (\/)
There's no difference between retreating 5 squads at once, or retreating five 1 by 1.

The idea does not do what you think it does, it just punishes players for fielding armies of infantry. Blobbers still gonna blob.

Terrible idea, it would ruin infantry play.

20-25% Of the games is full of units retreating from a fight to repeat the cycle again and again. Not only would it be counter-productive to stop blobbing. This also will lead to less possible strategies since some of them are manpower-based strategies.
