are u for real ? does the 340 mp cost and 36 reinforce cost get removed ?
by that logic there is no reason to use IS over commando and rifle over para
Commandos and IS are vastly different from durability to range of engagement
And funny you say rifles and paras because they are so similar that the only reason one wouldn't completely replace rifles with paras is the timing.
And the Rifle At snare
You are correct in your argument that there is a cost difference between the two and that can influence the choice. My thoughts are that the function of the units are quite similar outside of cost and so if I am picking them for their battlefield purpose I will choose the falls.
Volks and falls each having STG/BAR profile weapons and rifles that are moderately effective at close, mid and long range makes them similar in choosing engagement ranges. Falls have bundle nades and Frangibles to Volks Flame grenade. Both have panzerfaust.
Then there's popcap. Falls are 9 and volks are 7. You can get 3 falls for less than 4 volks and I think it's tough to pass down that value if you are looking at being popcapped.
There is the risk of being bleed more by vehicles with falls, but I feel they compensate you for that with the dps and wipe potential they bring to the table.
