A rose by any other name

Here talk about units and structures.
IMPORTANT!: Every unit type and structure type should be in a separate topic.
So if you have a new unit idea than open a new topic for it!

A rose by any other name

Post by Sunrise Samurai » Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:14 am

I've noticed a striking number of units that are fundamentally identical, just with another name. Could we merge some of these? Especially where we have "German infantry" or "US caltrops" with the only real change being the name. These could all be boiled down to simply "infantry" and "caltrops" without much​ loss of individuality.

And i agree that caltrops dont need prefix US,Russian or German considering that all of them are the same.

Maybe we can add more infantry types for each nation.
German= Strong, well equipped, well trained, expensive, some of them limited (to simulate military size restriction)
Us= Moderate, all around
Russia= Cheap, each infantry only strong against it's speciality
The infantry unit we have now will be rename to sapper.
What do you think?

If they are different enough, I think I can accept the prefixes. Remember that infantry are currently the builder units though, so we want to keep them fairly balanced.

Russian elite infantry was pretty good though. Their regular infantry wasnt bad either.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
