Now Imps have buffed GR mobilecanons and drewbacks and snipers on Hoth, not much player will win against them. Hoth is the place to be for Imps, not for Rebs.
On green planets Imps will roll over every base with EliteATAT, only suicide Rebs will stay there offline.
Erkit and Tato are the only places where rebs can stay a bit.
But hey, see the imbalance in game more and more rebs quit that game....
The solution ?
Give rebs GR sharps/hails instead of useless vanguards/skiff and give Imps the same jump power as we have for jets.
Because every player, doesnt matter if imp or reb, attack with similar loadouts, so give all the same chances in defense and offense, so attack strategy and baselayout will be important again....
First off, Hoth is just as good for rebs as it is for imps. Those tautauns are a real bitch to deal with. Please stop with the Mobile Heavy Cannon Skinned GR garbage too. Those things spawn once or twice in an attack, and are slow moving, and slow firing. In other words, they are cannon fodder. A SC packed with Chilly Hails combined with Tauntaun Skinned GR will stop an imp attack stone cold btw.
The GR Snipers aren't what is killing your attacks, btw. Even with the skins, they are low level. It's everything else that is taking your troops out. Mainly the L10 troops in the SC. The main function of the GR troops is to slow your attacker down long enough for the turrets, traps and SC troops to work.
My L10 base is nearly maxed out. I still get 3 stared on attacks. Usually from a Jet swarm of 20+ and 6 med ships. That's the most common. Although what usually takes it down, are different more varied load outs. Mainly because my defense are tailored to deal with the Jet swarms.
This is a strategy game. If your attack strategy isn't working, try something new.
The answer is not to make each faction identical. The answer is to differentiate them even more. So each has to develop more and better strategies. It's ironic how rebel players bemoan the "Imp Troop Advantage" and then they never use their sullustans or X-Wing Pilots....
I find and attack a lot of rebel bases on all planets that are very challenging. Many times I barely get a star, or come away with a loss.
