I liked the NC and IF idea but LB is op and DS can't defend.
LB used to be +15, then nerfed to +10, and then to +5 but you're buffing it again. (I beat 8 infs with 3 tanks)
And DS now has a really bad defence.

I liked the idea of NC but the rest are all op strats now..
LB used to be +15, then nerfed to +10, now it's +5 because it was still op.
Iron Fist can expand very quick now.
And DS now has a shit defence. Great.

There has been a discussion for 2weeks in the forum; i didn't see you posting there; nor in any other idea's topics and now you are subsequently complaining. Most people in the topic agreed, so now just wait and see how things go (and post new idea if you don't like the current strategies!).

This is a quote of Cow, when this update was suggested by Desu:
Wr1tt3n by Guest, 12.01.2013 at 08:20

I support Desu's original suggestions. Especially the ones concerning Iron Fist and Desert Storm.


This is a quote of Cow, when the update is implemented:
Wr1tt3n by Guest, 23.01.2013 at 08:28

Alex is right though. Instead of the suggested -1 defence DS got a defence, attack AND bonus nerf. This is quite an overnerf.

I would also like to refer to your last change of mind with the ELO suggestions and change of mind with the update on Ukraine/Turkey. I've told this many times before; but with your different opinions every day its hard to satisfy you.

Sorry for the off-topic a bit; i really like this update and i fully agree on Pinheiro's comment

 Desu
And blitzkrieg still isn't adjusted. Pls halp blitz, think of the children. Also my 3rd fav strat ok:
Favorite strategies: Sky Menace, Imperialist, Blitzkrieg


And the DS does seem overnerfed with -1 AND no bonus defence. Give its defence bonus back at least. Or better yet, why not just -1 attack and one of the other compromises. I would like to revise, and say -1 attack shouldn't be accompanied with -1 defence.

Adjust it so it has its bonus back, and defence, and just add +10 cost or -1 range to the inf. -1 attack is fine, but I now realize that nerfing the defence just makes this strategy like TG, only able to attack.

edit: Also it'd be helpful if you completely removed IF's transport nerf. You only did it to -3, not -2.

Thanks this is great.

Don't forget blitz, as Desu has explained.

Lastly, don't forget to edit the descriptions for the strategies. (lucky bastard still says +5 critical hits for example)

Yea, I forgot about the Blitz strat...

But to be honest I doubt that a strategy without any proper defensive unit will ever be useful on
a high level.

23.01.2013 - 11:58
It should be -1 defense to all units for blitz.

with +1 attack to infantry

LB should be nerfed.


No, not at all. It's a lucked based strategy, and it's still not that lucky. The LB infantry is about the equivalent of the IF infantry. The only unit that is relatively very strong is the tank, which is good because it's 130 cost as a land unit. (compared to the sm bomber or the ds helicopter) LB is very strong however in big stack battles, but the cost balances it because spamming isn't very efficient with it. So, even though it's very powerful in large scale battles, the opponent can still win quantity over quality because his units are cheaper. The only unit you can spam is infantry, which is as I said the equivalent of the IF infantry exept with a luck factor instead of a sure given HP, which evidently makes IF more reliable. However, LB has more range than IF so it balances out once again.
Atm, it's quite balanced.

Exactly, it's a luck strategy it'll happen. But not often. That roll will only happen about 10% of the time, which is not reliable, so you wouldn't use it in a game.

Looks good, only thing I would change is IF -3 to -2 because the magnitude of -1 HP since that was implemented is huge, perhaps people don't quite understand how powerful HP is.

I'm okay with everything just not liking the DS inf, like some other people lol, I think they should be the same as SM inf (just -1 attack). LB is fine, you can use LB and still have horrible roles sadly, so it's far from OP.

I tried it out earlier, it had the def bonus for being in cities, but it said it had -1 def (without def bonus in cities its like -2 def). Lemme recheck lol.

Edit: Still says it has -1 def when I tried it out.

Inf with DS have 3 attk and 5 def, ignoring city bonus.
