[USF][1v1] The Pershing is OP

#1
9 months ago

Problem: It's anti-infantry is too high and it vets up too quick. It's an easy non-tech option for losing USF players in a fairly OP commander in general (I understand some will mention the C-Panther. Of which i'd also like to see added to tech, but it's commander is nowhere near as potent in general).

Solution: Tie to Major tech, nerf it's AI and/or Vet-speed.

    Im with you that the Cmmdr is OP but cannot agree about the Persh. It has the same health as a t34/85 while costing 100 more fuel. Obvi it has a lot more armor, but my point is that it's by far the least durable heavy

    The combo of rangers, mines for riflemen, the best smoke barrage in the game, and a heavy tank is definiitely too strong IMO. Tho it seems like relic is leaning towards buffing off-meta commanders vs nerfing popular one

    Solution: Bring a singular Panther.

    If you can't handle 1 super late game medium tank, the problem is likely located somewhere between keyboard and a chair.

    WTF mate you can't kill a Pershing? Panther can totally kill it even if it miss a shot or bounced shot.

    Panther got 1000 plus (HP Correct me if I'm wrong) much cheaper and got vet 5 when using OKW

    Pershing got 800 HP (Correct me if I'm wrong)

    Tips:
    Pershing almost don't bounce shot.
    Get 2 Pak40/raktn
    It dies with 5 AT gun shot
    Don't let it vet up to 3 it shoot every 2 secs(only strong point)
    Get tiger which have almost same cost but much much stronger.
    Tiger commander got better abilities vs Pershing.

    Heavy cav is just really strong. Combined arms is probably his worst ability and it's still pretty useful.

    Pershing would be okay on mechanised (replace the 76mm Sherman/dozer upgrade) but to have US' strongest infantry and tank on one Commander seems a bit much

    It's like old armor/rifle company. It has you covered for every stage of the game.

    Increasing vet requirements might be worth a look at but anything heavier and you'd be looking at buffing durability to compensate.

    Thanks. I was expecting to be corrected with that also with Pershing hp.

    No Pershing has 800 HP you can see hp/armor in Cruzz's file.

    Pershing is the glassiest cannoniest heavy tank there is. It packs a punch but can't take it

    The Pershing is perhaps the best heavy in the game right now, but it's also the first to die. It packs a punch, but definitively can't take one.

    For being the best heavy in the game, it's also the easiest to counter of all. Literally a single Panther can beat it.
