At that time it seemed pretty clear to me that those playing the Empire had distinct advantages based upon the programming of the game. Having very little money to build up my base defenses, I decided on a strategy of attacking low-level imperial bases using just Han Solo (level six), one R2 med unit to protect him, and five or six rebel troopers to clean up. I scored tons of wins this way, and was able to enjoy the game.
But this time around?! Holy CRIPES!! I decided to play the Empire, hoping to enjoy the same advantages as had my previous competitors, only to discover that the advantages now went drastically the other way! Moreover, the new algorithm forbade attacking low level bases. I've been playing heavily and steadily for three months and I STILL don't have the Imperial equivalent of the medical R2 unit, or ANY of the barracks and factory-based troops to defend my base. I mean, even at level 10 my base is a sitting duck. It's ridiculous. And it seems I'm stuck playing the Empire on this device, a laptop, despite having uninstalled the game software and then re-installed it.
If I were to create a partition on my hard drive and install the game THERE, could I switch to the Rebel Alliance?

Seriously? Reserves are so easy to pull and lure away so you can kill them without them firing 1 shot!!! That really isn't a big advantage unless the attacker doesn't know how to easily kill them.
As for your one strong rebel unit: how about skinned jets? They got 10% more health than skinned jumps and 45% more damage. When facing 22 of those (including sc) that's an enormous advantage no skinned atat or reserve ever compensates for.

No idea how you attack, but you should be able to pull sc first with the rebel kubaz unit version (bomb any walls in the way), then tank all the reserves and sc troops with luke.
Ofcourse there are more ways to deal with this instead of luke, you can drop a droid far away which won't move when jets are deployed, then have the jets kill all those troops since they won't shoot back while walking to the droid.
Or drop the droid, use kessen to snipe the sc and any troops walking to the droid, you get the point
No shots will be fired by snipers or any other gr while you do this.
