So as per the relic blog: http://www.companyofheroes.com/blog/2016/03/04/the-vetreinforce-bug

This bug has been in the game since release

I wonder how much this is going to change the flow of late game now units will have correct vet modifiers. OKW lel days to return? USF terminator rifles x100?

So...accuracy bonuses for reinforcements have never actually existed? But the received accuracy bonuses definitely have, which if of course why the terms "Terminator" and "Rifles" are a couple these days.

If that's the case, Penals might end up entirely fine afterward.

According to Relic, neither the accuracy or rec accuracy was working.

Received accuracity bonuses worked before 26 february hotfix :facepalm:

No wonder that conscripts' -40% rec acc helped more than -23% rec acc of penal batallion :(
And greandiers with -23% rec acc always were superior to both cons and penals thanks to lmg42.

And now rec acc bonuses have gone, so lmg42 gives to greandiers even MORE advantage.
Thats why maxim spam is the only way now :guyokay:

So having good vet0 troops and bad vet bonuses(like shocks) is better than having bad vet0 troops and good vet bonuses(like penals).

I think its clear now why it feels that axis OP (or very forgiving at least) :hansGG:

To be fair, cuddletronic said that it may have just happened around when they were fixing some veterancy stacking issues from a few patches ago.

The latter was definitely working up until this point. Vet 3 Rifle toughness was certainly not a placebo.

Yeah, that's what I thought too, but if they say it's more than that and they're bothering with messing around with the entire engine, it's probably more than that. The question's more in what the bug has historically affected.

I think we will learn to play a new game, and for me it's so exciting

When the last time penals(vet3 +60% acc) were useful?
I'm asking because they're actually very good: they can walk throught negative cover to lmg grens(vet3 too) and win a fight with 2-3 models remaining.

Wonder how weapon teams will turn out after the fix. If infantry weapon vet's never been working quite right, weapon teams will be dying to bullets way faster when it does.

If relic is updating the engine because of this bug, they should update the engine further for better optimization aswell. Couldn't hurt...
