SU85 is practically a hard counter to the JP4, JP4 is kind of a joke of a TD anyway. As for the Elephant, snare it and use 2 mediums to flank it, or hell you can even win one on one with a T34 if the elephant is not supported by driving around it. The Germans don't have the benefit of massing armor like the allies can, at least not by the time an elephant comes out, so you should be able to overwhelm pretty easily unless your opponent is extremely cautious.
Ehh what? JP4 is arguably the best TD in COH2 if you use it right. I sense a L2P issue here. SU85 especially has no chance vs JP4 because the JP4 will always get the first shot of thanks to camo. Then it also has significantly higher ROF than SU85 which means it reks it hard.
Generally JP4 also has a ton of armor and can´t reliably be penetrated by medium tanks, meanwhile P4s pen SU85 with almost every shot. JP4 also gets a HP boost to 800 at vet2. Again no other medium TD has this.
Is there an overview anywhere with the faction wins?
From what I've seen in Tightrope's casting replays, Allies won convincingly a lot of or even most times. As opposed to 1v1 balance (GCS2 stats), it seems Allied factions are much better balanced in team games which is something I've always thought. I think USF and UKF are much stronger when they can concentrate power on the much narrower front lines of team games.
Seeing as right now we only have GCS2 stats as an indication of the current game balance, it would be very interesting to see if the 2v2 tourney tells a different tale or not.
reality is that axis is way better in 2v2 than 1v1 on most maps... allies won lots of games in the commander tournament because the axis revamp doctrines are terrible.
That´s actually a decent idea. Current Panzerfüsiliere are very awkward because they come too late to be mainline infantry and aren´t elite infantry. The only role they have is really to replace wiped Volks in mid-late game.
It would be interesting to have them as an AT specialist.
And what exactly will be the reason to pick German Infantry doc instead of insta-choosing Jaeger Armor or Lightning War every match as usual after the patch?
None of the axis reworked commanders are any good. I said that plenty of times in the feedback thread. From the doctrines I have tested, the only good revamps are UKF royal arty regiment and to a lesser degree Soviet urban defense.
Soviet tanks are fine, if anything buff conscripts and maxims some how, because being forced into penal/guard gets boring af, its honestly lame af how soviet meta rn is early engineer to compensate for capping power
How about buff conscripts into 200mp and merge their grenades and let them become ostruppen, or reduce their reinforcement by itself so they are less bleed.
Seriously fixing cons, maxims, shocks (which is being buffed already), will drastically improve soviet choices that would nerfing stuff like t70 cheese not a bad idea
I agree with this. Maxims shouldnt get an outright buff though, that would just bring back Maxim spam. Instead they could be toned down to 5 crew members, higher pop, longer build built time but better suppression and/or arc. Right now Maxims just feel like literal trash compared to almost any other MG. Exception is the DSHK which is crying in a corner because no one wants to use it because it got overnerfed so hard. I know it sounds arrogant but when the Dshk changes were dicussed I wrote multiple posts about them getting overnerfed. Seems like I was completly right. Again, the issue with Lend Lease were not Dshk but tech-free Shermans.
The doctrine is very strong but I feel like OKW needs it to counter UKF sim city and/or teamweapon spam. Leig is just not enough in many cases. As with any doctrine with heavy artillery, not countering it can easily lose you the game. But that´s a problem any doctrine with ML20/Lefh has not just OKW fortifications doctrine. If you look at other factions, Soviets have lots of doctrines with ML20s (and one with B4), Ost has several LeFh doctrines, USF has infantry company with Priest, UKF has Royal Arty regiment which will soon get a buff. Why should OKW not have a arty doctrine?
