Why do I have the feelings that russians get weaker after every patch? Were they too strong during the test?

@ab2531
Because Christmas is over ;).

Some soviet units were too strong vs a particular unit, hence some units were tweaked. As you can see, the balance team balanced soviet units during the development of this patch... it's not white and black or nerf and buff, they were tweaked: nerfed vs a particular unit or buffed against other and so on. Except for the ISU-152 whom damage was lowered to be in the same range than CoH most powerful tanks and avoid insta-gib every unit it faces.

But don't worry, this should be the last time we post such amount of changes for soviets ;).

@Fearsubzero
I'm afraid you only read the part where soviets were nerfed, which was deserved because they were stronger than intended. If soviets were stronger, the solution wasn't to make strong the others, but weaken the soviets a little bit... not that the list above only contains "nerfs" but also a lot of "buffs".

Soviets are not going to steam roll everything as they used to be(Tank Hunter abuse, ISU-152 insta-gibbing everything?). But if you think some changes were not deserved, you can post your balance concerns here: Easternfront.org

Also, as already stated in previous comments, there is no such thing as "Golden Balance", that's just an utopy and will never be reached. If Relic couldn't reach it what makes you think we could?

That's right. Your team discuss about six(!) months about the new balancing. A game should be enjoyable. It's true that a good balancing is necessary to get to this goal, but at least it's the player who make the difference betweeen win and loose. :D

I am not sure how much this matters but anyway I believe you put so much effort into this modification.
Well done my dear comrades!
