I'll keep this part as short as possible so as to get straight into the point quickly. I've recently noticed that there are some interesting issues that started to occur right after the Commander Patch
was released. I also thought that it would be nice to state my personal opinion about several units in order to make them more useful and maintain the game balance.
-The keys to build a Munitions Cache
and plant an M5 Mine
overlap. Therefore, we're not able to use the shortcut key 'M'
-This unit should be able to build a tank trap just like Sturmpioneers
and Rear Echelon Troops
-When you choose the Advanced Emplacement Regiment
commander in-game, you'll notice that you won't be able to build a Munitions Cache
since the keys to build a Munitions Cache
and plant an M5 Mine
overlap which results in not being able to use the shortcut key 'M'
-These units should have the opportunity to build a tank trap if the player intends to pick the Advanced Emplacement Regiment
commander. Since this commander is meant to be a defensive one, it would be sensible to give such an ability to the Royal Engineers
unit so as to reflect the protective side of the commander.
Assault Infantry Section
-The Assault Section Upgrade
that grants 2 Thompsons SMGs
, grants access to No. 77 WP Grenade
and increases survivability shouldn't be picked before the construction of the Platoon Command Post
building in order to keep the early game balance as these units also get the access to smoke grenade which can be used to bypass hostile heavy machine guns that are supposed to stop massive numbers of short range units before they reach themselves by pinning them eventually.
-The keys to the Assault Section Upgrade
and throw a smoke grenade overlaps which causes not to use the shortcuy key 'V'
-These units must be able to access to the No. 36M Mills Bomb
because having the opportunity to throw a grenade is ultimately more useful than the Molotov Cocktail
ability. Even the Assault Section
unit has the access to No. 36M Mills Bomb
, No. 77 WP Grenade
and Smoke Grenade
-The Vickers K
upgrade should be replaced with "Scoped Lee-Enfield Upgrade"
which grants 2x scoped rifles that gives advantage on long range so as to make the British version of Pathfinders.
Mobile Observation Posts (SdKfz 251 Half-track)
-All factions except OST have the opportunity to set a retreat position that gives the opportunity to save time and keep the stability of the frontline while fighting on the battlefield. It would be nice to convert this vehicle into a fallback point so as to maintain the balance among the factions.
-These units should arrive on the battlefield as a 4-person squad just like Stormtroopers
. As you may know, the Airborne Guards unit of the USSR arrives as a 6-person squad and has the opportunity to get 6x PPSh-41 for free. However, you need to reinforce your expensive Infiltration Commandos
if you want to possess a full infiltration squad which isn't fair at all.
-It should be made it so that M10 Achilles
can take advantage from the British vehicle skins as it arrives on the battlefield with its own default skin. Even the Soviet M4C Sherman
can benefit from the Soviet vehicle skins. Therefore, it's totally pointless to keep M10 Achilles
away from the faction skins.
M5 Half-track (British version)
-Like I said above, it should be made it so that M5 Half-track
can take advantage of the British vehicle skins as it arrives on the battlefield with its own default skin. As you may have realized, the USSR has the opportunity to apply its own skins to this vehicle even though the fact that it's a lend-lease vehicle.
-This vehicle must either draw advantage from the OKW vehicle skins or must have an own skin just like the Command Panther
-It should have a passive aura ability like the one in the Command Panther
-It should get benefit from the Panzer Commander ability.
-After the latest patch, the Partisan Tactics
commander has totally become a useless one because the Partisan Troops
unit no longer arrives on the battlefield as a short-range unit that can suprise the opponent and sabotage the frontline. However, I've never seen a player that picks this commander since the day this patch was released as the Partisan Troops
used to rely on the element of surprise. That change must be reverted so as to encourage the usage of this commander in-game.
Airborne Guards Troops
-These elite units should parachute so as to arrive on the battlefield. They're known as Soviet paratroopers, yet they still arrive as an infiltration unit like Stormtroopers
. The decision to make them look like an airborne unit who previously infiltrated the target area has never been reasonable since the day the Airborne Troops Tactics
commander was announced.
-Either the upgrade that grants 3x DP-28 light-machine guns must have a slight improvement by augmenting its overall firepower or the 3th experience level must grant 40%
accuracy bonus instead of only 30%
to promote the usage of these light-machine guns.
-After the patch that increased the cost of constructing Schwerer Panzer Headquarters
to 90 Fuel
from 60 Fuel
was released, these special units became less effective than before. The reason for this situation is that it now takes more time to grant their additional 2x FG-42s
since that upgrade requires Schwerer Panzer Headquarters
to exist. In order to solve this problem, either the Mechanized Group Support
upgrade in the Battlegroup Headquarters
building or the Mechanized Regiment Headquarters
building should unlock the upgrade.
-The keys to grant flamethrower and throw a satchel are same as each other:
