Am i the only have hating how the nations that are supossed to be the strongest, are in fact pretty average? Specially with the new nation dlc trend (made overpowered on purpose so people buy them), i would like to read your opinions.

No you are not the only one. There's a big segment of the community that would like to see USA overhauled and USSR's pricing revised.

While USSR is almost ok in terms of power and unit diversity USA is in pretty bad state. Yes, it has some nice and powerful toys, but horrible inf, lack of wheeled combat transport make USA pretty mediocre nation for play. NORAD compensate this a bit.

USSR was statistically the second most successful deck in the game behind Eastern Block according to Eugen.
And that was BEFORE Eastern Block got the huge BMP price nerf in the Reds DLC patch. It's very likely that USSR is now the most successful.

To be fair, I would argue that this is possibly partially because some of the most experienced russian players play USSR exclusively but whatever.

As for US, they are in a coalition. They will never be one of the strongest standalone nations because of this. Canada just has too much nice stuff to add to the mix.

In anycase this thread is pointless. There is no way that units on US or USSR will be added or buffed.

Well, there are some mods out that fix some stuff from that. Eugen just need to copy & paste.
Delta Forces in a little bird with grenade launchers? Awesome! Nice Air Force and stuff like that...

It is a game. USA/USSR and coalitions are supposed to be in balance.
Its made for all players not just USA/USSR fanboys.

Edit. sorry still sore from getting my arse kicked in last game.

I wouldn't call ADATS, Mexas, Canadian Rifles with TH495 too much nice stuff :lol:
Maybe count the Canadian Airbone too...
