My issue with this game, imo, is how USF rifles are able to gun down retreating units so easily, how much bobbing pays off, how my opponent clearly double MT, and blobbed his way through victory. Im talking about me vs iloveyouall. Maximum cheese paid off with little risk. A game that is increasingly becoming like starcraft. blobbs still have no punishment. Unless i get a lucky stuka, or expert HMG play, its just being crushed by the weight of rifles..
You're definitely right about double-upgraded USF rifles being crazy strong. Probably too strong. Allowing squads to get double BARs/LMGs has been a problem for a long time. You would have thought that Relic would have learned their lesson when they took G43 + LMG42 combo away from Grens years ago.
Heck, probably a year ago now Relic played around with the idea of preventing squads from getting two weapons but... sadly nothing came of it.
As for the blobbing, I tried to blob as little as I could but 2v2 on crossing leaves very little room to flank/maneuver especially since it normally plays out as two 1v1s on each side of the map - for the most part our game followed that trend.
I think we would have had a harder time winning if one of you had managed to get a squad or two of LMG Obers out, but even that can be a feat against aggressive USF play. And, given enough early aggression, the Obers are still going to be fighting an uphill battle if they're up against double-upgraded Vet 3 rifles. Rifles are just so efficient and scale so well now.
The double mortars was from me, I don't think Love got one. I just had extra manpower lying around between teching since you guys ignored my side early, I didn't really bleed - figured the mortars would be a nice investment because they're crazy on that map and the USF mortar is just stupid.
All in all I did get lucky with a few Stuka dodges. Somehow none of my rifles ever got wiped despite going down to low hp/one man squads from the base hits. I was proactively dodging as best as I could, but still lucked out with some guessing of where they would land.
Not trying to brown-nose you in any way but I think if you wanted to work a little harder at getting better you could be quite a good player Gopher. Just depends on how much you feel like investing in a dying game.
