Remember in Tales of Valor, when you got that 1st reward unit? I remember mine, it was the Hotchkiss Light Tank for PE. oh the days of spamming it and the rocket upgrade.

So I was tinkering around the Idea of bringing a semblance of this system back: a swap of one unit for another without the use of Doctrines
B-b-b-b-but Britle! Doctrines are alrdy good, and thes wil make it OP!!!!!

First off, you misspelled my name. Second, Reward Units are not Doctrines

Doctrines are supposed to give your army pizzazz: A distinct spice on your Faction's Build

Rewards Units on the Other hand changes the way you play that faction

Because with Reward Units, you WILL have that unit, regardless of which doctrine you choose That was why I love reward units.

Now cringe all you want as I give out Examples of what reward units with this faction
