Since the "Lack of viable commanders for Soviet & Wehrmacht" came up pretty high in Relic's balance poll, I decided to do some shameless advertising for a mod of mine. It started as a rework of the very terrible Soviet Defensive Tactics back in February, and I have since added many other Commanders that I felt were severely underperforming.
I would like to stress that this mod is, in its current state, not balanced at all, and I don't think I'm a skilled enough player to have a valid opinion on game balance. Instead, the mod is intended to be a collection of ideas made playable in order to evaluate their potential.
I appreciate constructive criticism, but please actually test a commander before complaining about it. Suggestions are also welcome, of course!
Please note that you can only see the changes once you're in a match, not in the lobby or loading screen. When several commanders share a unit, all of them receive the changes, regardless of whether I listed the commander or not. For example, I buffed the KV-1 and added it to Defensive Tactics, so it will have the same buffs in Counterattack Tactics.
The mod is available on the Workshop:
