Jaeger Light Infantry
Combat Group Air Drop
Tactical Support Weapons Drop
These changes will stop USF players being able to field two IRPF squads before LT/ CPT teching, unless they are willing to delay their tech for it. Cost of unit standardized with regular Pathfinders because of their high combat and utility power.
Airdropped Combat Group
However, this ability was synergizing too well with the new 4CP Greyhound, allowing for an aggressive lieutenant opening, followed by an extremely cost efficient AT gun to support the Greyhound, without having to tech CPT. In light of this, the following change has been made.
This will force USF players to tech CPT should they want AT Gun support for their Greyhound. Players will have to forgo an aggressive LT opening, or delay the rate at which they can produce multiple Greyhounds if deploying both officers. This should allow for a more balanced dynamic between the Greyhound and Axis Light Vehicles / counters.
This change was made in order to let the Pack Howitzer retain its strong offensive capabilities, while reducing its survivability a bit so it becomes easier for Axis to counter it.
This ability has received changes to make it perform more consistently and predictably, while removing its ability to obliterate entire armies in some instances.
Minor UI icon and localization text updates will be deployed in the next major patch.
Fixes and updates to maps introduced in the April Map Update.
Urban Assault Kit
Support abilities for infantry fighting in Urban Environments.
Rear Echelon Rifle Grenades
This ability has been introduced as an interesting alternative to flamethrowers while serving a similar role of anti garrison/ cover positions.
Rifleman Incendiary Grenades
M4A3 Assault Package
Unlocks Dozer Blade Upgrade and White Phosphorous shells ability to Sherman Tanks.
The dozer blade will now increase armor to be in-line with tanks such as the Sherman 105.
Cover to Cover
Rangers are being more accessible, while their defensive stats are being adjusted to match all other infantry. Previously, they were the only ones to take less damage from all sources.
The Calliope is being adjusted to provide more reliable damage to units within the target area.
WC 51 Dodge and M3
Rear Echelon Troops
Volley-fire is having its received accuracy penalty reduced to increase its viability in combat.
*Received accuracy penalty reduced from 1.4 to 1.15.
81mm Mortar Team
Vehicle Crew Repair
*Same ability found in Mobile Assault, Vanguard Operations and Royal Engineers. Costs 40 munitions.
M10 Achillies I
With the addition of Anti-Tank Grenades on Royal Engineers, the 6-pounder no longer requires an artificial accuracy boost against light armor.
We have increased the price of the Self-Repair so snares that hit the Universal Carrier evenly trade in terms of munitions. Armor has also been decreased to make it easier to ward off early game with small-arms.
Minimum range has been added to match other grenade abilities.
Weapon Crate Drop
Airborne Rally Point
Upgrade route 1 - DP28s
Upgrade Route 2 - PPSH
IL-2 Rocket Strafe
To improve the performance of Conscripts, while retaining their role as utility infantry that excel at defense and supporting other units, we have added an upgrade to help them scale into the late game. The extra man and reduced reinforce cost will allow them to more effectively trade against opposing infantry while the veterancy bonus will allow fresh Conscript squads to gain veterancy.
Improved Damage Per Second (DPS) with upgrade:
Conscript Rifle: 3.61/2.6/1.98/1.346/1.0
Conscript Rifle in Cover: 3.91/2.87/2.21/1.54/1.22
At range: 0/10/20/30/35
Conscript AT Grenade Package
Due to Conscripts requiring expensive side-tech to fufill one of their primary roles as a utility unit, we are reducing the fuel cost of AT Grenades.
The following change is intended to allow the Maxim to better suppress massed infantry when the player is spotting for veteran Maxims using the Sustained Fire ability prior to engagments.
M-42 Anti-Tank Gun
The range on canister rounds is being reduced to increase infantry-based counterplay against groups of M-42 ATGs. Cost is also being increased to better match its performance.
The M5 is receiving number of changes to improve its role as a support vehicle when upgraded.
The SU-76 is receiving a number of slight changes to improve its role against light and medium vehicles with only a slight reduction against heavy tanks.
M5 Assault Half-Track
Assault Grenadiers are receiving a small number of changes to help them close the distance and increase their scaling in the late game.
MP 40s are having their mid-range power increased to match SMGs like the M3 Grease gun used by Assault Engineers. This change also affects Assault Officer and Volksgrenadier MP 40s, but not other MP40 variants.
Mobile Observation Post
Panzer IV J
The Panzer IV J has more frontal armor by default, is slightly better versus infantry and has more veterancy bonuses compared to Ostheer's regular Panzer IV (H).
The Tiger Ace has undergone a rework with the intention to make the unit less frustrating to encounter and be less crippling to the player that keeps their Tiger Ace alive. Changes to its requirements are meant to make the unit rewarding for those who tech-up rather than as an emergency call-in.
A number of changes have been made to a small group of underused Ostheer units to increase their viability and increase composition diversity. More details can be found below.
We’ve made some significant improvements to the Ostwind to improve its viability over the Panzer IV which was generally chosen as the first tank for Ostheer thanks to its ability to fight both infantry and medium tanks. Its ability to destroy infantry and aircraft at a lower cost compared to the Panzer IV will allow it to find a place against certain builds.
StuG III G
The StuG III is being given increased mobility and a reduced target size to improve its survivability on the field against AT-based units due to its lack of turret and range when compared to other tank destroyers.
Panzergrenadiers are having their timing changed to allow them to gain veterancy sooner and increase diversity in Wehrmacht unit compositions before further changes are made to their performance. Adjustments to veterancy should also allow the unit smoother scaling as the unit levels up throughout the course of the game.
We also want to emphasize their role as mechanized infantry, despite removing them from the Leichte Mechanized Kompanie. As such, we have added the Infantry Doctrine Combined Arms passive as a stock veterancy 1 ability.
250 Mechanized Grenadier Group
250 Panzergrenadier Group
The way Panzerfusiliers are deployed has been changed to better match their role as an alternative mainline infantry to Volksgrenadiers. They will be slightly weaker than Volksgrenadiers at the start but have access to the Anti-Tank Rifle Grenades, slightly better combat veterancy, and more powerful upgrades, giving them increased power in the late game. This should make for interesting choices and compositions.
Upgrade route 1 - Panzershrecks
Upgrade route 2 - Recon Package (G43s)
Infrared STG 44 package
Stuka Smoke Drop
Panzer VI "Command Tiger"
The Kubelwagen is receiving mobility and veterancy changes to allow it to escape from other light vehicles such as the M3 and gain veterancy without needing to be on the front-line where its light armor and low health are a liability.
We have reduced the significant veterancy requirements on the le.IG to match its current performance.
Veterancy requirements from 840/1680/3360/4480/5600 to 560/1020/2040/3060/3825
"Ghost Sandbagging" is now no longer possible. A variety of buildable objects, such as sandbags and barbed wire, are now passable by infantry until the item is fully constructed. Light vehicles will now either pass through or destroy objects that are not fully constructed. Credit to Janne252 for implementing this fix.
Booby traps of all varieties can now be placed on VPs (the one exception being the Soviet Scorched Earth boobytraps as those disable capping for some time).
All vehicles from which units can fire from the hold have had their moving accuracy reduced to 0.4. Was previously 0.5.
This hotfix aims to address the more problematic bugs introduced in the New Commander Update. Future updates will address more minor issues, and balance items.
Fixed issue where IL-2 AT Rocket Strafe was inflicting less damage than originally intended.
Fixed issue where P47 Rocket Strafe was doing excessive damage.
