I don’t know, only me or not. But in the game against AI, it is noticeable that German troops are noticeably more tenacious and have greater damage than other troops. 2-4 allied units are required to destroy one unit. Tanks turned into a panacea against everything ... The balance is a little destroyed.
If you do not want to make the infantry of the Sovet more significant, then at least strengthen their veteran bonuses. It is worth considering the presence of defensive structures at the councils.
For example, one German grenade can destroy an entire detachment of allies when the German takes less than half their health ... Monsters are direct, not infantry. It is better if these are more experienced soldiers, regulate this with bonuses of shelters and behavior in battle. And not laser precision and bulletproof.
Those who like the current balance, in principle, can repeat it with modifications, but by the way, infantry is infantry and the “Russian Ivan” was killed by a bullet in no way easier than “German Hans” or “American Bill”. Do not go to extremes with this. The preparedness of the infantry should act on behavior in battle, not in any way on bulletproofness.
By the way, you don’t feel the difference between a rifle and a submachine gun ... I remember the rifles should have been effective at a distance and the submachine guns are close ... Isn’t that?
I do not think that tanks should be a panacea. A machine gun on a tank should be more effective against infantry than a gun. And with increasing distance, the effectiveness of the tank should decrease. The exception is self-propelled guns with howitzers and mortars, the accuracy of which leaves much to be desired, if they are not German.
A more balanced game is obtained by the Germans against the Germans ... But here an interesting paradox arises ... after a couple of minutes the Germans of the eastern front are already flooding the map with tanks. Make a resource counter for the AI, and not a unit construction diagram.
I rarely play against players ... for a number of reasons. But according to what is observed with the balance, somewhere something is done wrong. Do not find?
