STRB 90

Postby VladK02 » Mon 26 May 2014 04:40

STRB 90 H the 70pt river boat...

Thats like a bmpt on steroids, with a FoF ATGM, and 40 health...

On certain maps, especially tactical, but also regular 10v10s, a pair of these in a river wipe out ANYTHING in sight and its very difficult to counter them.

Tanks get chewed up by ATGMs. Infantry gets fragged by grenade launchers and machine guns. PACT river boats get eaten alive by ATGMs. The only counters that kind of maybe work are helos and atgm planes (more then 1 of course). But its always a case of too late, once those boats appear, thats it your flank is done before the planes can respond.

I realize its all L2P and all that, but give pact its own fishing boat with ATGMs or something, its frustrating to watch a pair of these boats roam down the canals of whats that map called, Wonsan Harbor or something... 40 HP, thats insanely difficult to break with ground forces.

Yeah it needs an availability or price nerf. The fact that you can get 3x Elite with those God-tier ATGMs and optics makes it very strong. Redfor doesn't really have a comparable boat.

I don't think it has F&F atgms, if so then it must have been in a recent update.

Yeah I agree, nerf it or increase price, 90p sounds better.
"I suck at Wargame" or "I have to wait 30 minutes to pubstomp people" are not solid arguments to criticize the game... just saying.

ATGM-Infantry and any decent AT-Helo will waste it without any Danger.
And Planes as well of course.

So it is anything but an unstoppable killer.

The thing sends its enemies straight to valhalla, no questions asked. Its offensive capabilities and its resilience are way to great to justify its cheap price and good availability. The thing is a decisive weapon on any map offering rivers, and an absolute must-have in any decent Nato-deck. What is in order is a price increase to at least 125 (resilience, sum of top end weaponry), and an availability nerf by 1.

Either that, or make it a prototype for the Swedes. The proposed counters (AT chopper) are nullified once the beast enters any kind of G2A umbrella. And then, who would send in such a capable unit solo, without any kind of cover against air?

Hahaha, good one, suggesting that when you play naval maps you can afford to take riverine units ^^

Make marine only maps (ie no big ships, just river capable ones) THEN we can start balancing river craft. Which will be pointless cos REDs river craft suck so much compared to BLUEs

The main problem is that it has armor and a lot of HP. In a game on gunboat diplomacy my enemy drove two of those monsters right up the river. I had a few squads of Morskaya pekhota, VDV and VDV 85 in a village on the river. Both boats survived their tour through a hail of RPG fire and even managed to snipe off some vehicels.
River boats (all of them) seriously shouldn´t have more HP than a tank.

Riverboats need a general HP nerf
