It has been a bit unbalanced, but from the sounds of it, they are putting a lot of work into trying to balance 008 better before release.

Tbh I think the Guan Yu needs to have a different special as well.

It is really great trailer! It shows what each Chinese general is capable of... which brings some in-balances in my opinion.

These rocket infantry of Inf Gen seems to me OP for their great fire rate. They were capable of ruining a base in minutes with the size of an average inf assault by other generals. This makes his infantry more stronger and less massed, when you dont need that many to make your way to enemy base. I know that Fai's infantry should be strong, but this is really too much.

Kwai's Shaitan/Guan Yu... if you can have only one at a time, making it invincible for some time seems good to me, as it is epic unit.

I have suggested and pointed this out time ago on your forums. Kwai's Battlemaster still has non-Chinese-design skin/textures. I dont mean the design, but the camouflage. It dont match to China style in any way.

I must only point out on my opinion that Fai's and Tao's epic units dont fits into China in any way, more like it was designed in cooperation with USA. Only pointing on this. I must admit they are strong, but the design is out-of-place in my opinion.

The rocket infantry video in the back of the base was sped up and fast-forwarded for time's sake. I think the design ideas are good, but I agree on the skin for the Battlemaster.

Yes. I like the Designs for the Yang Wang and Battle Fortress. Yangwang has insanely high damage but a very low armor and rate of fire, it is perfect for Nuke General. The Battle Fortress requires infantry to be garrisoned to be effective, and it depends on which infantry you put in to determine the effectiveness. What do you think is wrong with the designs?

V.Metalic Mar 7 2011 replied:

Oh, you misunderstood me. I dont mean about its weapons, capabilities and such, I cant expected that by ůdesign" you will mean this... i mean appearence. You must clearly see that when you will compare Yang Wang and Overlord, it will punch you into the face that Yang Wang dont fits to the overall Chinese design of their appearence. Like I said, its like USA designed the chassis, and China put on their weapons.

You have a point, but would you expect ALL China heavy tanks to have Overlord Chassis? I mean, Flame general and Tank General have the Overlord Chassis already, so a new one was designed. We decided to change it up a bit, I think it looks good. It looks Chinese design and make to me, but that is a matter of opinion.

V.Metalic Mar 8 2011 replied:

Chinese design? Where? I understand that reusing Overlod's chassis is really too much, but these two are TOTALLY different, and in no way even distantly similar to Chinese Design. Even new US units with new skin and design looks low tier compared to these. These are more like from a distant future. For Battle Fortress, look on SwR Battle Fortress. it dont uses Overlord's chassis, and still you can feel Chinese design in it. These two...arent in my personal opinion anyhow Chinese.

casojin Mar 7 2011 says:

Guan Yu ability is not OP because it damages the Gaun Yu as long as it is activated (1 min and no turning off).

ATGM troop is at rank 4 and very weak against anti-infantry stuffs. Its rate of fire equals to 007 one.

Further balance test will be conducted for sure.

So what? You can easily destroy a whole base in a minute with 3+ invincible Guan Yu. And I usually wouldn't stop at just building 3 or 4.

T_T and i hated looking at those things shoot air even if i'm the one using it. and yeah they can be destroyed; by general granger to say the least. i once attacked granger's base with seven of these things and the all got pwned by 3 wyvern supersonic bombers, 3 aurora bombers and 2 f35s.

YEAH china ftw. this is a epic trailer, now i want to see USA super weapon girl :D.

just a question, that acopelyse device its offcourse very strong, but how does it work? does it have a timer and shroud reveal like other super weapons? cause it really should be possible to easily kill it. also, will be it for nuke general or al china? cause nuke guy has enough super powers by now.

oh and for 2 player maps, will my own base survive the blast? :P

and very last thing :D, will you please change radition back to 007? i don't like those circles.

It works like this:
- you purchase one general point to enable it
- build it near target
- it has timer, but only you can see the timer (enemy doesnt know you made it)
- it doesnt reveal to enemy like any other superweapon
- it destroys 2/3 of 2 players map

It is only for nuke general.

@Geroenimo, the song in this trailer is a mix of few songs, i dont remember exactly the name of them, because they are from some Chinese cartoon.

However,why the music sounds like 《Shao Lin football》's title music?

Another,Tank General's "Guan Yu"is realy fit the hero's name ,but what about the "Shintian"——刑天,sounds like "Shaitan".
