I've been digging into the stats for infantry and mech for both sides, and unfortunately, I think the update will make the divide worse. Empire infantry is not weaker in stats, only in the fact they have no healing. Rebel mech is weaker in base stats, and healing won't make up for that.

They originally had to balance the game this way because mech has higher health and tends to live longer. Adding healers to both sides without addressing the base stats will be a mistake.

I agree but sometimes fire with fire is needed.

I think you are dead on that Empire would benefit more from meds than Rebel would benefit from repairs. If this is the way it is going, it will be very difficult to implement fairly. If so, I hope that they can address other stats to balance it out. The game is more fun when there is a level playing field.

My thoughts precisely. I do believe it's just their mindset :cry:

If they get to put meds on Vader ... just ridiculous.

I like the Rebel side better because I think that there are alot more annoying fanboys who think they are cool on the Imp side :D .

I do think, in the current state of the game, that Imperials have it much better. But, in general I have felt that the game seems to be mostly trying to stay balanced. I expect even more tweaks with the next rollout.

Rebel vehicles can't survive RF turrets, meaning there is not and never will be a reason for Imps to use any turrets but RF and Mortars. If Imps get Healers, they can use half loadouts, because Rebels will have to either defend against Vehicles, or infantry. There's just not enough defense in the game to defend against both. So when you get your little red trash can, you either build your invasion force the way you have, or you build it with infantry swarm in mind. Then you press next battle no more than 2x for a mindless hundy. Rebels simply don't have the variety of usable units to give Imperial base designers anything to think about.

I've been playing since the launch and while it has been frustrating at times being a Rebel player it does feel like the reality of the SW universe. I love the challenge and have patiently built my way to
lvl 10 with only spending about $ 40 over the past 2 years. It's been fun so far and I am enjoying the diversity of new units and potential new tactics as the devs struggle to bring us new interesting content and keep it all balanced. Bottom line is that balance is an ebb and flow. The sad imbalance is the number of players choosing Empire over Rebels which makes it more difficult for the developers to keep everyone happy.

Nice to see that others are having the same problems with mass rebel infantry attacks.

We had a fighting chance before this latest update, but with nerfed turrets AGAIN- how are we going to defend our loot from bonsai charges of infantry and 2-4 astromechs? Even with snipers in my SC, it is hard. And even when I do defend, I get smacked even harder 2 minutes later before I even have a chance to START rebuilding my droidekas and lose a ton of goods.
