The primary aim of this mod is to get away from the current gameplay which for the most part involves spamming tanks. We are introducing gameplay that requires, scouting and using a variety of units to be successful. Tanks are not the do-all units anymore, instead you need artillery units to take out defenses, tanks to take out artillery units, air units to take out the tanks, and AA units to take out air units. It's basically bringing Rock-Paper-Scissors to the game which we believe makes it more challenging and interesting. We're also making the factions' abilities exclusive. By that we mean only Nod use mines (so no APC mine drops) and they are also the only ones that use cloaking technology. The same applies for GDI who use more EMP now etc. We think this better defines the play styles of the factions so that you aren't just playing each faction more or less the same way.

I still think they need railguns but if you arent doing that, can you please return them to the concept and give them missile pods? They deserve the extra AA deterent. Noce touch on the drones though

One of the key objectives of this mod from day one was to not have units that do everything. So all AA abilities were removed from tanks so that players had to use AA units in support of tanks. Basic Rock, Paper Scissors. It's something that we feel really works and makes the game better, so no sorry, we won't be adding rockets or anything AA related back onto tanks.

"They deserve the extra AA deterrent."

What about the predator tanks make them so deserving of a weapon type that doesn't suit them? Not trying to sound mean here, was just wondering about that remark since you make it seem like they're so underprivileged and under-powered as it stands right now.

Description

We felt that the Predators were too powerful with their railguns in previous versions of the mod, which meant Mammoths were almost unnecessary. So the railgun has been dropped and in it's place the Predators received a repair drone ability, which was also a nod to the Paladins in Generals.

The repair drone is a per unit upgrade option available at Tier 2.
