The introduction of the Mech Infantry at 4 IPCs allows for the increase to tanks and the separation of value between land units. If tanks were 5 IPCs… nobody would buy mech infantry or even artillery for that matter.
You don’t feel the combined arms benefit of artillery or the blitz capability of mech infantry would be enough that people would still purchase it?
I’m just curious as the value of several other units have gone down but their benefits remained the same or were even slightly enhanced (such as a 2 hit battleship and aircraft carrier). Not suggesting 6 IPC is wrong, just curious if anyone just went with 5 IPC out of habit.
In 1942.1 they were kept at 5 IPCs while their attack/defense values were bumped up to 3/3. There was a lot of howling over that as a lot of players thought that made tanks way overpowered. Strange that 1 IPC can make such a difference.
Starts to add up when you buy in bulk
