Dayum we are going to need different topics.
1: Snipers with Heroic critical type on retreat; So everytime I drive my kamikaze jeep into his line to get my sniper to get a CS he just retreats and takes away all his risk?
Meh it's true, you'd run into pretty significant 5% issues with small arms trying to kill Snipers. You could remove the Sniper's 75% Received Accuracy Retreat bonus though, and the Heroic Critical type be their Retreat bonus.
It's a tough situation. The problems are obvious but the solutions aren't. I think all of the following are needed in some form:
- A Nerf for Sniper Spam
- A Buff for non-Sniper Sniper Counters
- 100% Countersnipe
Btw does Wehrmacht sniper have a sight radius of 40? opposed to the standard 35 for infantry? This one holds a lot of hidden power in attacking moving around. And the +5 sight range could be moved to veterancy level 1/2.
I think it's just one of those perks for facing larger squad sizes. Who attack moves with their Sniper (except against Brits)?
*Ye that quote 'Ready aim time removed, projectile speed fixed' is something I used from a long time ago Kolaris posted aswell xD slightly more damage vs bunkers is a good idea. Won't make it do more damage vs elite armor, cause that might channel it too much into a niche OR be totally OP when a Wehrmacht player only has Pak + Vet Grenadiers.
Heavy T2 is a huge niche though, especially in team games. And I think it has to be a niche unit, because the Sherman is supposed to be the generalist, reliable option. By definition anything that competes with the Sherman would have to be a niche unit.
* I think they did what they had to do in the game vs 12ocky (Oh wait that's me). They cracked a heavy T2 strat really nicely. I wouldn't buff them further though cause that would make them OP and Croc rush vs Fuel deprived Wehrmacht would be slightly too easy. Since now already the only REAL thing that counters the Croc is a tank.
I'd compare the Croc role with Ostwinds, where Ostwinds are pretty good at finishing off a game when you're ahead as Wehr when facing everything except tanks.
I'll have to watch that again but I feel they don't crack a last-ditch T2 defense any better than a Sherman, and a Sherman isn't an all-in gamble. Neither is the Ostwind for that matter.
