1. I would rethink the US faction and doctrine design. If its a faction that goes for some sort of quantitative superiority, then make it more as a faction feature via upgrades. Supply yard and the way some vehicles become a slight cost drop on the long hand or by basic cost of certain units.
But just stop making a certain doc being a "one unit spam doc". Such spam types can be too easily dealed with. Spamming one unit is nonsense.
On top of that, the current spam capabilties are far exaggerated. I mean in armor doc you can build almost three e8 for one panther. That is just nonsense and exaggerated.
2. Furthermore give it some killing power and/or survivability. The exaggeration of "spam" at cost of killing power and survivability largely overstrains lots of players.. Right now US needs some sort of combination, lots of abilties and so on just for killing a single medicore unit. It can kill attacking tank IV´s, but attacking them without pershings can become a pain from time to time.
3. US doesnt have to be "always cheaper". If an e8 is as good or better as an tank IV H, fine, why does an e8 has to keep cheaper than an tank IV J while there is no reason to be that way. This leads to unneccessary downgrades of many units and weapons that would and could actually be superior to stuff axis can get. We have lots of examples here. Most important to mention is M1 compared to G43 for example (or K98 as well), 76 mm M1A1/2 compared to 75 mm L/48, armor performence of tanks etc.
For example we could have scenarios in which an 76 sherman cost 460/60 compared to 410/50 for an tank IV J (normalised cost, no more CP and doctrinal based cost drops of certain units). But noooo: US must be cheaper> adding downsides the tank never had (poor resistance to medium AT guns and bad 76 gun). Or wise versa-> adding boosts for axis "weapon systems" for no reason. Let it be rate of fire (at guns, heavy 88 rate of fire, 88mm flak 36 damage).
Can anyone get what i am actually talking about? Anyone can follow my thoughts and understand my critics?
