I swear, anything Soviets have that is good and better than the axis side, people will just whine here so they nerf it.
Back then it was:
-Conscripts op, conspam, conspam, conspam
They nerfed conscripts to ground so that they can't touch anything at any range, conspam was no more, so soviets are now switching to maxim spam instead since cons are plain trash.
Now they finally get an infantry squad that allows them to be on par with the rest, T1 is at last of good use and what you say?
-Nerf penals, penals op they win long range too and have op flamer
Crying out the "penal spam", don't make me laugh, if you lose to somebody popping out 4+ penals, you suck honestly.
Did you at least consider that Soviets have no good infantry squad (something to equal balance against enemy infantry) in early game, and they need to tech up + spend 300mp for each of these to be built, to leave out anti-tank guns temporarily?
So Penals are op because they have a flamer that reduces their dps and is only good to deny green cover.
A 60 muni upgrade, is it something that every penals upgrades to?
Decide yourselves already? What's not good for soviets to have?
