Is the AI still broken? Because I always get spam rushed(especially heavy vehicles like scorpion) early in the game... that too on normal difficulty

Actually now it almost seems too easy. I regularly play on legendary and the covenant ai mostly builds infantry before inevitably going scarab. UNSC is still a decent challenge though

Barely few minutes into the game (normal difficulty)... the UNSC enemy would always spam Vultures while I was in tier 2

I know your busy but please put a limit on the flood drop pods! They can legitimately just be spammed and can result in like 15 flood launchers attacking a base, which is rediculous. Also, the flood birds are overwhelming.

There is a limit, actually. But usually flood drop pods are better utilized as resource income and power

So I'm sure that you already have a lot for the mod that you're working on, but I had an idea for a potential rework on the Spartans. They've always been my favorite part of Halo Wars and I like the variety of weapons and abilities, but I always wind up using the MG and laser Spartans for their hijack ability. What I'm proposing is giving hijack back to every type of Spartan, and instead of the armor abilities being active powers, make them passive bonuses unique to a specific Spartan type. For example:

SMG: gains jetpack which grants permanent flight, like Heretic Leader
Shotgun: gains sprint for passive speed boost
Sniper: gains permanent active camo like Arby
MG: gains armor lock which either gives a health/damage negation boost or, if possible, temporary invulnerability when the shields drop
Laser: possibly a passive grenade throw like Jerome, no other ideas there

Last thing: the grenade launcher Spartan is okay, but I definitely miss the rocket guy because he was the only AA Spartan available, and was always a great addition to my army. For his passive I was thinking smart rockets like the marines.
Other than that, I've been having a blast with this mod almost since it came out, and my friends love it too. Keep up the good work and thank you for your dedication to this project.

PS: Please allow Spartans to commandeer friendly Vultures rather than being forced to jack the enemy ones

I just have an idea: For the Prophet, since you know that the Brutes have Brute Jump packs and the Elites have Rangers that functioned the same way, why not give the Prophet Drones to do the same thing? Just thought I throw it out there.
