I do not see how anyone with skill could lose against sniper or any other GR combo unless you are in mind numbing farm mode (which is super easy to make a mistake when you are grinding) but to get butt hurt and blame others for your laziness or stupidity makes even less sense. I have yet to see an intelligent attack on my bases fail at any level unless they got some bad luck and hit a trap with a decent sized group (not a retard pile.)
Same can be said for the "unfair' jets in reb's SC....but by all means carry on. What everyone keeps forgetting is the the matchmaking hell that 7-9s are faced with. My HQ8 constantly gets matched up with upper 9s and 10s on attack and 95% of the time gets rolled by a 10 on defense. Sometimes with 4-6 heal ships lol. lvl8 troops quickly get out gunned with even mid level snipers/rodian but at least the developers saw the absurdity of tacking on the astromedic to boot
You do realise that the astromech was never in heal range of the sniper right? It was just fodder to slow jets down. In all of the HD's I did and Defense videos I watched they never got healed. Mostly because even skinned they are still 1 shotted by jets. Sure they could heal a storm, but they died in 1 shot most of the time even with skins. Astromech caused the jets to shoot twice instead of once. They took all of the damage away from them now so they do less damage than a storm trooper just have longer range even with skin. They have 1/3 the hp of the vanguard and slightly less damage for 1/2 of the armory buff cost.
As Imp I get matched with many more bases 2 or more HQ levels higher than me than on my Rebel account. at 7 it was common to be matched with upper 9's and lower 10's and be rolled by 10's. The further up you go the worse it gets. I cannot think of a reason to not just skip level 8 all together maybe 9 too. Just get it out of the way because you are just going to get stomped not being 10 after you get to 8.
I still think the best way to go about it is race to 6, then camp a maxed 6 for frags to unlock at least every unit and research everything. Then max 7 while camping 5+ levels of frags and researching everything. Then just race to 10.
