Meh ... I know they are trying to stop the swarms ... but I dont feel like this accomplishes that, though it will allow some defenses.

The biggest problem about cutting the soldiers in half is it still isn't enough to make me use Jets or vehicles. Why would I? They still can't bullrush as hard as the heavies. Though ... everyone switching to mortars makes Jets a little bit of fun.

I just hope that this update comes to windows after the arctic ops is over and not before, as we haven't even started arctic ops yet on windows

A bit late i think, they should have done this within 15 days of the desert ops update

According to info found here

http://www.star-wars-commander-info.com ... rmory.html

Heavie and regular buffs are cut in half:
Heavie buf now goes from 77% to 172% - was from 153% to 343% (lvl1-lvl10).
Regular buf now goes from 63% to 147% - was from 125% to 293% (lvl1-lvl10).
That means buff was ~4x, now its ~2.5x

Mortar and Burst buffs are increased very slightly - only the starting levels:
now goes from 110% to 159% - was 100% to 159% (lvl1-lvl10).

I think this was a much needed nerf, and exactly what the game required. It shows the devs listen (or rather read this unofficial forum) and care about improving the game.

I confess I'm also a little frustrated / vexed though, as I'd only recently unlocked the desert heavies and didn't get much mileage out of them pre-nerf, but this is definitely the right move by the devs.

Now if only one of them would come on here and talk to us like they did on the official forum ... ;)

You must do what you think is right, of course.

In general, if you have regular infantry boost level 8 - its the same as old boost level 1. That means you can still do "regulars+meds" attacks, but now you wont be able to attack Hoth with fast "half-size" armies - slow-building of full-size armies will be required.

Actually, I am not a "defense guy" and I am "upgrader" - so i liked the previous ease of farming resources fast.

Well.. the trooper equipment definitely needed to be nerfed. But they should've nerfed the defensive equipment at the same time, IMO.

The issue with these ridiculous updates since Desert Ops wasn't just that troopers were OP - it was that the defensive buffs effectively made all the other units underpowered garbage. So trooper spam didn't just make sense because they were powerful.. it was the only real viable option. And it still is.. but it just got hit with the nerf bat so it's not as effective as it was. But that doesn't mean other units are more viable suddenly.

I don't think this will change very much. You'll still find yourself getting attacked by trooper spam; it's just that you might win now and then. Or not get hundied so frequently. But the game is still completely devoid of strategy.

What's the point!!!!
Nerf attacking troops and boost defences !!
I am now winning 3 out of 4 defences and losing all attacks.
So the actual portion of the game that requires my input is now just a waste of time.
It's a good way to waste time!!
:shock:
