Okay, so this is clearly not the first time this topic has been discussed, but it is a matter I am still confused about. I am in the Xbox 360 leaderboards top 100, yet I still do not quite understand some of these:
according to the combined # of Attack and Defense upgrades, JSF Riflemen should be the best. My rank 3-6 JSF Riflemen are completely upgraded, yet still seem unable to take down other Riflemen. It is possible that the enemy Riflemen are Legendary, but the sheer number of times my outfitted Riflemen have lost excludes this argument.
according to the number of upgrades, SGB Transports should greatly outmatch any other Transports. Yet my JSF Gunships survive a heck of a lot longer against Russian Transports than they do against EFEC Transports. In fact, I have yet to find a unit other than a decked-out Tank that CAN survive EFEC Transports.
JSF Gunships suck. Fewest Attack and Defense upgrades. So much for American airpower...
Do EFEC infantry move faster than JSF/SGB infantry? I know they have a Mobility upgrade that helps with the speed of uplink capture/upgrade, but it sure seems like move their little European legs much quicker as well.
Russian tanks seem quite weak. At least weaker than their reputation claims them to be. They are perhaps the SGB unit I fear the least. EFEC Tanks: like kids dressing in Dad's clothing.
SGB Artillery does live up to its reputation.
All of the above are battlefield observations. Opinions--especially from SGB and EFEC players-- are most welcome.
