1. Early Game
Every high allied player uses mass rifleman. Its the first RTS that i know where such a stupid and unskilled tactic has so much success. The allied player builds two Rifle Squads or one Rifle and one jeep and his no problems with volks because his rifleman are cheaper (270 to 280) are one more men and are faster to build (if you take the right tree).If the allied takes the building you can nothing do with the germans.
But its getting better. The BAR is one of the best weapon in the game. you can pin down volks in one second, yes one second (bunker and MG squads need 4-5 seconds) so how imba is this.
I don`t know why allied players are afraid of tanks. The allied has sticky bombs (never saw a sticky bomb falling to the ground, but so several panzerfaust missing there target) und bazookas (two of them) for his ranger/airborne. The airborne have TNT the granadiere only handgrandes.
Panzerfaust (Cost 50 Ammo)
- sometimes miss
- never took out the engine
- do much less damage than SB
Sticky Bombs (Cost 50 Ammo)
- always hit
- disable nearly always the engine
- do much more damage even against heavy tanks
Is this imba enough ? But have much more.
AT-Gun. With the option it shoot armor piercing granates. With this Option a Puma or Stug is dead in seconds and even Panther und Tiger geht enough damage. Is this Option for one Shot? No its for 10 Seconds (2-3 Shots). Regarding the damage a panzerfaust does and the damage a AT-Gun with enabled armor piercing rounds does its a joke that both cost 50 Ammo. The AT Gun option must at least cost 100 better 150 Ammo. The AT Gun has also a much to far shooting range and the granades fly in curves (yes no joke) so you can`t escape with your tank. Regarding this I can`t understand why Allied players are so afraid of german Tanks.
The next part is the tank barrier (don`t know if it is called liked that in german its called "Panzersperre").
The allied can produce them for free. But how can the german destroy them ? Even a goliath which is the best explosiv the germans can buy, only suffer 1/4 damage on ONE tank barrier. Tanks need even longer (12-15 shots from a panther). A Tiger can roll over the barrier but first, if you play defense tree you have no tiger and second the most games are over before you can call a tiger. On the other side the allied player can equip his Sherman with a bulldozer and destroys the German tank barrier.
So I hope you can understand that as a german player the game is at the moment a pain in the ass.
