Your evidence here doesn't really support your argument. If anything you have just argued that infantry is, indeed, less relevant in EE — a sentiment would agree with. Infantry in Red Dragon plays a central role in taking and holding territory on every map. This just wasn't the case in EE because it was more vulnerable and less powerful. They weren't without use, but they weren't as important.
Yeah but, infantry is the only thing that can fill a role. Sure RD infantry have more building cover and longer AT weapon Range. I mean Infantry may be less present in all situations in EE, they still are essential any how. For both games for example some maps in RD are a lot of open desert, you won't be holding any of that with infantry. Like the Middle of bloody ridge or something like paddy fields.
