dugfromthearth Posted December 16, 2003 Share Posted December 16, 2003 My understanding is that the rarity score exists not to balance scenarios but to enforce historic use of unit types. Well looking at a typical game it seems to be completely off. Basically the Allies have the same number of troops, tanks, etc as the Germans. If that were true historically, the Germans might well have won. Now I don't have the exact numbers, but it seems to me that for historic accuracy the Allied units should have something like a -25% or -50% rarity rating, because they were more common then German troops. Sure scenarios might seem to be imbalanced because of it, but again rarity is not to create balance, it is to create historic accuracy of unit levels. Basically the Allies would have a tendency to win. Which would be historic, afaik. It strikes me as odd to use rarity to force the Allies to use the bad tanks against the German good tanks as was historic, but then not use it to give the Allies the numerical superiority they historically had. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
