The AEC is no wiping machine. The Luchs hardcounters brit infantry (since they can't simply pull fausts out of their asses), and the AEC is almost completely useless vs infantry.
But AEC is a counter to Luchs. Or balance goal now is to make game safer for those who can't adapt and predict?
can you do the same cost analysis for what happens if you go Lieutenant
If I go Jagdtiger in the game vs player who spams infantry all day long and there is no sign of any vehicles does it make JT UP? Another words, if you expect Luchs, why you go LT? Is your wrong decision a balance's fault?
