Because of GDI's Dropship Command, Nod needs some reinforcement abilities as well...

#1 Militant Revolution: 3 Militant Rifle, 3 Militant Rocket, 2 Fanatics-----$2800
#2 LEGION's Division: 2 Cyborg Squads, 1 Cyborg Reaper-----$2800
#3 Infiltration Team: 1 Phantom, 1 Stealth Tank 1 Cobra-----$5000
#4 Purification Force: 2 Blackhands, 1 Devils Tounge, 1 Avatar with Purifier UPG-----$4500

the liquid tiberium lab would have to be remodeled to be able to have a tunnel beside it where the montauk pulled up.. opened its doors, let the troops out and left.

me and playmsbk thought of these

Well, Nod got all the other fancy stealth & discuise technology that GDI dont have. They also got more other support povers than other factions.

And what does that mean? All defenses have stealth detectors, while there are lots of units that can detect stealth. GDI also has the most powerful unit in the game, the Mammoth Mk2, while no normal ground unit can destroy the Mammoth Tank in a 1on1 battle. Each faction's strentghs are the counter to the others' strengths. This brings balance to the game. And as I said for Scrin, they are a solution of last resort.

First off.
Why would I buy "Infiltration Team" when I could buy a Temple of Nod for that much?

Second.
Most of this stuff I can buy for a cheaper price at their respective buildings.

Third.
I don't see the Montauk dropping of a Avatar anything soon.

1) Cause you can't use a nuke in your base to repel an enemy.
2) Check the prices again.
3) Have you seen how big the door of the War Factory is? If an Avatar can fit out of there, why wouldn't it from some huge worm sub train?

Alright Alright. You got me.
It makes more sense to me have these reinforcements GDI exclusive. Giving all factions something like this would harm faction diversity.

I see your point(s), but I don't support this idea.

Wasn´t the dropship thing to compensate the Gdi´s  lack of economical support thing?

no no no...
first off... i would take the orca strike over the catalist missle and i would take the shockwave arty over the vapor bomb... the seed tiberium only plants... either 1 or two loads of tiberium anyway so it is not that big of a deal...

so i still like the idea...

There are only three Nod support powers that are really worth being used. The Stealth Generators, the Subterennean Strike and the Tiberium Vapor Bomb.
GDI has 8 support powers in total, 4 Reinforcements, 1 Superweapon, 2 Offensive and 1 Intelligence excluding Dropship Command reinforcements.
Nod has 10 support powers in total, 2 Reinforcements, 1 Superweapon, 2 Offensive, 1 Defensive and 4 Intelligence.
Scrin has 10 support powers in total, 2 Reinforcements (including Mothership), 1 Superweapon, 1 Offensive, 2 Defensive, 1 Intelligence and 1 Utility.

So most of Nod's and Scrin's powers are rarely used utility or intelligence powers = useless for most players, while GDI's support arsenal is full of reinforcements and offensive powers = usefull for all players.

And I don't see how would that hurt faction diversity, is it one of GDI's factionary aspects to use lots of reinforcements?

So make the GDI´s support power only able to scam thne terrain and not find stealth things and less time revealing the shroud?

Also GDI really burns his money. Or you choose "quality over quantity" or try a blitzkireg (?) or spam, but with a big chance to be contered.

I am not too annoyed by that power. I was just pointing out that most Nod and Scrin powers are pretty useless, while the smaller GDI arsenal is 100% usefull.

You can do that with every faction. Cyborg Commando infiltration, 50 Avatars-60 Stealth Tanks-70 Black Hands attack, Devil's Tongue spam and Mastermind infiltration, Scrin fleet attack, Disintegrator spam.
