First of all, I'd like to thank all of you for keeping the discussion nice and civil! It's nice to see that this topic hasn't degenerated into petty bickering.
And it seems that most of you are in overwhelmingly in favor of the national deck bonus (even buffing it!) so i stand corrected.

But I do not like the current implementation, and I do not like the idea of prototype units beeing locked to national decks.
What I would like to see is that national decks get a buff to the activation points, and to unit availability, as well as some "flair" bonus.
For example, the west german deck should get an availability bonus to mech. inf. (like +30%), a availability bonus to tanks (like +50%) and each tank slot should only cost 1 activation point.
Spam ALL the tanks.
But oh well, I am dreaming.
I have to say I fully agree. I'd love to put some of the prototype units into my mixed deck, and right now the activation point bonus just isn't big enough to compensate for playing a national deck "fairly".
But I suppose the question we should be asking is: Should it be fair?
Should a NATO player with a mixed
deck have the same chances as an equally competent Polish
Pact Player? Or should he win 9 times out of 10? And vice versa.
Having the bonus implies the former to me, but if so, we're a long way off from achieving Deck to Deck balance between national and mixed Decks.
