1. Because Relic does it. This tournament and other tournaments were held to improve the game balance. The developers took a more global view of the USF problem after the terrible game of the USF in the 2х2 anniversary classiс and in December 2018 we got good changes.
The tournament shows the best state of balance, because the best players play there, and you can’t say - L2P.
Ultimately we don't just rely on tournament results or top player opinions. While important, they are just some of the indicators that inform balance.
Currently, I have four undisputable top ten players all telling me that USF is going to be OP in the upcoming patch, after playing numerous competitive mod preview games against each other.
Conversely, I currently have zero top players telling me that the Stuka is OP or unfair in its current tier, and don't recall any directly asking me for Stuka nerfs post the last 2v2 tourney.
As a tangential point, the balance team probably won't act on this pro player feedback right now, but suspects it to be correct. If/ when USF has to receive some small adjustments post-patch, you can bet your bottom dollar many vocal USF players will protest loudly, pro player consensus for the changes or not.
Additionally, comparing tool timing/ availability across factions is reductive and borderline disingenuous. In the indirect fire department alone, you can point to areas where USF has an advantage over both Axis factions.

You are there the most mediocre role. I'm sure. Because your words diverge from official announcements. Moreover, a member of the balance team should be impartial, and you are a fan of OKW, who never covers the USF problem. What kind of developer are you?
Not true. Sander has been an essential member of the balance team since he joined, and is comfortably one of the most dedicated and invovled.
Dirty OKW stan granted, but top fella.
jk, not really an okw stan
