[1.04] Heavy mortars
« on: February 04, 2010, 09:54:55 PM »
i was just thinking about this, and would like some input on it.

Since the mortar is just a mobile arty piece, wouldn't it be better to make it cost a bit of fuel, since almost all arty costs fuel (not priest).  maybe just 20 to prevent the massive spam of them. 

Generally when i play soviets by the time i get the support building built, i am sitting on at least 1500 mp, my friends say the same thing too, so it makes them easy to spam.

Just wondering what u guys think.

Is no spam with their cost.

Also 5-8 mortars will be very bad idea,because many population and manpower will be gone for support units who are unable to win the war alone.If forces who protect them are weak and die,they will be an very easy prey.

yea, but 3 can take out any of the infy you send towards them, since they usually come out before vehicles that can approch them.

they've already been nerfed and soviets can't cap, i think it's stupid to add a fuel cost to them.

The upgraded mortars cost around 437 mp which combined with the fact that you cannot recrew evens out their awesomeness quite nicely I think.

I'm pretty sure I have never had my MP reach 1500, how the hell can you get this by the time you get the support building? This confuses the hell out of me, have you never heard of infantry or something?

IMO Mortars don't really need a nerf or additional cost of any sort at this point in time, the upgraded mortar I think needs to be fixed though.

The only real issue I see with the mortar anymore is it's minimum firing range. Every so often they manage to wipe out whatever I have charging at them unless the Volksgrenadiers or Assault squad is right on top of the crew.
