Era based decks

Postby THEDAMNRUSSIANS » Thu 16 May 2013 14:06

I strongly feel that the availability increase should be cut in half
i.e 80%->40%
40%->20%
Maybe 60/30
right now you can simply buy far too many cheap and spammable tanks to be controlled. Ex. yesterday(ended in draw but we have over 500 more points and map control) I just faced horde after horde of T-34 and T55 spam. T-55 is fine fore price but T-34 should be 15 IMO.

I do not agree at all...You can"t complain about players spamming T55 when its all they have and its not like you have no shiny toys to counter them.I would hate to see Era decks become as pointless as thematic decks.
And are seriously complaining about T34? Mein gawd.Its stats is far poorer than T55,yet you are suggesting it should cost the same as T55,no.

I hate to say but it sounds you simply got surprised and outplayed unconventionaly.

however,plane avalibility bonus via era bonus should be looked at,currently,1980s bonus gives 1 additional planes flat while 1975 gives 2.

An Aardvark and a small force of Challengers/M1A1s/Leo 2A4s would both make very short work of any T-34/85 and T-55 spam force.

I never said it had to be 80%. 20% would probably be good for "Mechanised" and "armoured" decks, while most others would be 40%.

And 80% for para and airlifted :lol:

Managing hordes of cheap pos tanks is hard. Stopping them a bunch of gun-stabilized platforms that outrange, outgun, outrun and out-armour them using semi-retreating tactics or playing cat&mouse is much easier.

Sadly,vets on old tanks(inaccurate) appear to be fairly worthless as far as I recall as the accuracy modifier is applied on its base accuracy rather a flat increase.
