I can't agree here. Soviet CEs are one of the best units in game. They are very effective both in combat and as engineers (of course in relation to their price and with possibility to upgrade with flamer, lay mines, etc.)
Pio,s have a certain range wich they stand a very good chance to win. Ce,s do ok at best at longer ranges but thats it. With flamers they are better then pio,s with flamers. But pio,s have more abilities period. There is no disputing this. Pio,s have better sight range also there is no disputing this.
In terms of enginering pio,s are better. In terms of utility pio,s are better, more building more mines bunkers sandbags, healing and extra sight wich benifits all units of ost, and can fight decently in cqb.
And on a side note pio,s benefit from doctrines on top of it all. On top of them already being worth 200mp. And doctrines not meant to balance a faction just cover weaknesses or and a different style of play.
So please stop complaining that pio,s are not worth 200 and ce,s are too cheap. You are the only one who thinks this.
