As the June update draws closer, I have seen a couple of review videos on YouTube providing comments on the upcoming changes. It seems pretty clear that the Allies are getting a considerable number of buffs while the Axis are getting little to none. For instance, giving such cheap universal carriers to the British without nerfing the bizarre durability of infantry sections is simply giving too much of an upper hand to the British player. Oh and also, now that I have mentioned it, why on earth are the British infantry so much more durable than the German ones? What entitles them to be much more survivable?
Moreover, I just think the Allies have a far more intuitive and rewarding tech upgrade system when compared to the Axis. Many do believe that Wehrmacht's Tier 4 upgrade is quite pointless and as far as I am concerned, there shouldn't be a single pointless upgrade in the game for any faction. Certain Axis units like the OKW FlaK Half-Track is nearly useless and the Allies generally have a far more effective unit roster. Why on earth is this the case? Let's compare the Luchs and the T-70. Luchs is good for attacking infantry and very lightly armored vehicles. T-70 has much better vehicle damage output due to higher penetration but does it lack when combating infantry? Not at all! Its insane fire rate can wipe out an entire Sturmpionier squad in less than 10 seconds!
Having come from CoH 1, I have always thought that the Axis received a lot of unfair nerfing and downgrading. As someone who loves the Company of Heroes franchise, I am just expressing my innermost concerns in this short post. I am welcome to anyone who can convince me otherwise that the game is heading towards the right direction in terms of balance and that there is nothing for me to worry about and just focus on improving my skills.
Thank you everybody and have a great day!
