Jaeger Light Infantry

Jaeger Light Infantry are over-performing like crazy. Their rifle upgrade causes them to bleed enemy models way too quickly, and their reduced cost has allowed them to be spammable. Check this stream for more info. https://www.twitch.tv/captainsprice.

P.S. I am an OKW main and have seen this first hand.

    I think that they are way too cost efficient and can be called in way too early. At 250MP and CP1 they outperform any ally infantry (0.9 accuracy vs. green cover is insane) in the beginning and it's quite easy to get to a critical mass which makes it impossible to play against. Also the ability to call them from any building makes it even worse because they can be called in immediately into battle.

    I think the main issue right now and the first thing I would change is their lowered reinforce cost. 44 was extremely high, but at 30 they are not being punished for being overused and blobbed.

    yes, they are VERY cheap to produce, average reinforce cost, can infiltrate, have denying cover G43, good skills. If OKW player decides to spam This broken unit it's unstoppable, even 2 Mgs are getting ripped. Relic should raise its price, remove infiltration or reduce the dmg or accuracy of other soldiers who are not carrying G43

    Yeah those are all big problems. Right now they are not operating like skirmishing scout infantry but as bruiser front line troops for a lot of OKW players. We are seeing the Overwatch commander in the front of a lot of people's lineups and I think this sort of game play pushes away new players and encourages bad strategies.

    I stand by that reinforce cost increase would be the best step toward balancing them, but they need a slight combat performance nerf too. They were too expensive before at 44MP/model but now they are way too cheap for how they perform.

    just played a 4v4 with myself and an ally using them. just insane how good they are. hope they get a nerf, along with that air support the same commander gives.

    The air support would need its own thread. I don't think it is in the same category as the JLI.

    And to top it off, you need to pay for them or get super lucky with the drops. P2W is not OK.

    LJI has a crazy performance in these days. In 4v4 games, OKW users who selected Overwatch doc do not need use other units. just build 1 or 2 Volks and 1 Raket, and earn 1 cp then do spamming LJIs. It will make you beat your enemy in infantry fighting phase. With LJI spamming, you can exhaust your enemies' manpower, and you can build your tanks faster than them. It is unfair. Although LJI has expensive replace manpower, LJI can blow up allies' manpower. It must be patched to reasonable way.
