The overall opinion of the community begs to differ.
The overwhelming opinion of wehraboos has always been that allies are OP.
It's harder now that at other times in the games history to win as axis. That doesn't mean the game is so out of balance it's impossible for an axis player/team to win. I've been doing quite well lately as Wehrmacht. Sometimes we get out played. Most of the time we don't. (I don't do 1v1)
I'd argue balance is better now than at most other points in the games history. If you cant deal with a land mattress or calliope how did you ever deal with a katyusha? The pershing is so op how did you ever handle the IS-2? USF has a few more tools in the kit now. Brits do too. They still have glaring weaknesses. Comets are very good too. I will say the cheap smoke on those things screwing with at guns is VERY annoying.
The lefh is better now that it's ever been. never been anything as good or comparable to the stuka dive bomb. still have stuka CAS. still have stuka zu fus. if you can micro the luchs is a monster. the flamer 251 is very potent. Pgrens are very good. mg42 is still the best mg in the game. still have the best lmg in the game on obers. pfus are some of the best and most cost efficient infantry right now. okw gets free AA from flak truck. leig is still very good. pak40 is still very good. stugs are amazing for their price. panthers are still one of the best "tank hunter" in the game, unrivaled durability. panzershreks are the best hand held AT in the game. and of course the real stars of the show, the KT, the JT, the Elefant, and the Tiger. The Tiger isn't what she once was, true enough. TDs tear her apart, which is only right. KTs are freaking beasts. They're super slow so you must be deliberate and careful about pushing. Properly supported there is very little the allies can do about a KT. Now the axis have two units which the allies have absolutely nothing comparable in the heavy TDs. Elefant and Jagdtiger are show stoppers. 320 damage with guaranteed pen at all ranges. If you know what you're doing these things win games. They aren't solo machines. They need support. If you do support them they are uncounterable. Put some riegle mines on the flanks and keep a tank/pak/shreks around with sufficient AI/suppression and watch them weep.
Just because everyone thinks jumping off a bridge is a good idea doesn't make it one.
