Excuse but how is Maxim overperforming?
Is this a joke because from what I have experienced using this unit, it is certainly not overwhelming.
Underwhelming, possibly but definitely not overperforming.
Make it 4 man, increase suppression.
Really is useless to continue to find a fix around it rather than going with this simplistic concept.
It would be a better MG and Conscripts be more viable support since "merging" would be even more useful and stronger for a stronger performing MG.
If conscripts and maxim reinforce cost is not the same, make it so.
It has been said many times, u can't make maxim 4-man due to the deathloop already making it essentially 4-man
