Revert number of supply trucks petition

Postby Keinutnai » Mon 2 Dec 2013 09:49

It was a good decision by eugen to increase FOB supplies, however decreasing supplies and numbers of supply trucks and helos was not.

Reasons why:
-Halving supplies practically forces everyone to use a fob because 3 cards of supples (18k) is enough only for shortest games. Previously we had 36k with 3 cards. Now with a fob we have 16k immobile supplies and only 12k mobile.
-Now using 2 cards of CVs is handicapping, because 2 cards of supplies are not enough, be it not enough supplies with trucks or not enough trucks if you have a fob.
-Overall this patch nerfed pact a little compared to nato because pact has weaker tank guns than nato and uses tank atgms more extensively than nato.
-Even with no trucks lost, your supply trucks wont be able to keep up with the consumption mid- late game.
-Losing even few trucks can cripple you, but you need to send them to the front lines to refill your infantry for example.
-From realistic standpoint its ridiculous that trucks come in amounts similar to LEO2A4 tanks, and in reality armies field thousands of trucks a multiple of all the tanks an country has combined.

Vote +1 if you agree supply trucks number and supply amount should be reversed to previous state (Double). Supply helos should be revisited too!

I vote against this.

I take 1 card of supply trucks and 1 card of helicopter supplies and 1 FOB and I am more then able to manage all of my supplies and keep my units repaired and re-supplied. Honestly whenever i see anyone complaining about the current supply system I think its only because their micro management sucks.

Personally I'd like call in zones back but having more trucks again would be nice.

2x FOB + 1 truck = 38k

No I love the new supply system. Its really killed off camping and upped the game tempo.

I also seeing a lot of new decks and units I haven't seen for ages (if ever).

Didn't know jet spamming counted as a tempo increase. You know, the jet spamming that happens because NATO's fast firing missile AA eats up supplies just like PACT's does.

Spam will be addressed on its own, not indirectly by returning to care-free supplies

Will being able to supply trucks from helos at least be added?
