Why the Jackson was ever changed from the glass cannon design to the current one is beyond me. The Jackson was a terrific and powerful tank, that was so easy to get Vet-3 on due to how easy it is to micro a tank destroyer in CoH2 (a-move, and u key to retreat)... So sad that it ever got changed.
If they reverted it back to old self, I'd say that's best. Why they are making the Jackson into an extremely expensive M10 is beyond me.

*LMG 34, not 42.
What do you mean by "Volks versatility" though? And how does being less expensive mean they are better? Volks can make green cover and throw flame nades... Obers can booby train points, have bundle nade, have phosphorous nade... sounds fairly versatile to me too.
Volks armies have big problems fighting any allied infantry late game - Guards are much better, BARed riflemen are much better... 2x Bren Tommies are much better.
While I agree that Volks are acceptable in 1v1, due to the popularity of Falls and the nature of the game mode, Obers in 2v2 and higher are just fantastic. If you are a decent player with a brain, you can accomplish so much more with a squad of Obers than just "camping a VP". That is a huge waste to be honest. Use Obers to push with your Volksgrenadiers, and use the Volks as a damage sponge (since that's all they are good for after 20 minutes) and use Obers to do the real killing. It's quite easy in a typical 2v2 game, for example, to get an Ober squad with over 40 kills. That's quite impressive considering how much later they come, etc.

Funny since SU76 penetration got nerfed, guards got nerfed, ISG but buffed, IL2 got nerfed, cons sprinting past MG is L2P issue, MG34 is pretty good last time I played.

A Vet 0 Obersoldaten squad with LMG42 upgrade is much deadlier than even a Vet-5 Volksgrenadier - Plus the earlier you get the Ober, the longer it has to kill anything with a heartbeat.

That is how every game that exists is balanced: The best player provide feedback, the game is balanced. A competitive game is a game that people will play, and will make money. To have a competitive game, you need competent players to balance the game. A game designed around catering to noobs is not a good idea from a profit standpoint. If noobs want to play their own version as they wish it to be, the CoH2 mod tools are right there. Go ahead and create "blvckdream's perfect vision for coh2" mod and have fun. The rest of us who enjoy playing a game that requires skill and is competitive and is fair will continue to provide feedback on the balance patch.

Just because not every team does it in the tournament doens't mean it's not too strong, man. The tournament is a small sample size. It has however showed up - just looked at game 4 of Brosras/Guard vs Rutra/Dzaraa - Dzaraa spams snipers and it's a very 1 sided, 30 minute victory for the soviets.
It just so happens that USF and UKF are also good in team games, and literallt everything soviets does is good, so you don't always see it (especially on maps like Elst).
Just think about it man: If 5 people show up to a party, and no one eats chicken wings, does that mean chicken wings are inherently disgusting? Of course not - by the same basic logic, if you are capable of following it, teams NOT using soviet snipers in every game does not mean that they are not too strong. There are so many variables to consider - Map pool, players, etc. Even the fact that certain maps are not in the tournament means there are less snipers. If a map like Alliance of Defiance were in the pool instead of Elst Outskirts, I'm willing to guess you'd see more snipers.
Now, after reading this, please take 5 minutes to reflect on why you're wrong before replying. Remember: just because not every team spams snipers in a handful of tournament games, does not mean that the sniper is not overperforming. You can, if you wish, take a look at the games where snipers are produced (particular watch Rutra/Dzaraa, as they are good soviet players) and you can see why its an issue.
Maybe play some games against Rutra as an example. I bet if you played 100 games against him, you would lose 100, and would probably kill a sniper in maybe ... 1 or 2, depending if the RNG gods bless you with laser mortar fire.

This is the funniest thing I heard in the discussion: that a OST fanboy complaining Soviet units are so durable.
"OST fanboy" even so I play all 5 factions (unlike you, who have literelly NEVER PLAYED anything other than SOV/USF, LUL).
I could care less about Soviet weapon crew durability - I only brought it up because it's a theme that people use to support why snipers should be 2 man ("other units are more durable so the sniper should be too!").
However, the sniper IS too durable. When a soviet sniper can be flanked by two grenadiers, and has to retreat past them over open ground and does NOT die ... that's a joke (and yes, I didn't make that up, I'm speaking from experience)...
Imagine an OST Sniper getting flanked by two riflemen early game. It would be in like 0.5 seconds. Only the soviet sniper can survive 5 seconds of continuous point blank rifle fire and get away.
Whether or not the solution is to make the squad 1 man or make its received accuracy terrible is hard to tell - but the current state of the sniper is without a doubt bad.
