It´s not about balance as I said. It´s just not fun to play vs. people that build multiple bunkers, which does happen a lot even in 2v2 unless you only play vs top 50-100 opponents. And to discourage people from buildings/spamming bunkers it would be good to give them a small population size. If you use google you will find plenty of threads of people complaining about bunkers. I am far from the only one that thinks that way and by the way I wasnt the one opening this thread either.
Y i understand ur point. I'm sure it's not fun playing vs bunker spam but as soviet u can have istantly mortars, as USF same, as UKF u've to wait till t2 (min: 4?) for having ATs for shotting it down or upgrade ur IS with arty ability or mortars pits etc...I mean it might be frustrating but instead of changing the game it might be better change your approach vs those kind of players
Then if it's just for speaking between friends forget what i said Kappa
