Commander,
In this update, we addressed a number of unit balance changes, bug fixes, and adjusted the maps in Tiberium League

GENERAL META FOR UNITS
- Added a new speed level: Faster
- Units that were already this speed, such as the Orca, now properly display this speed

UNIT BALANCE CHANGES

GDI

APC
“Brings the APC damage levels higher than the Rhino, making it more useful as it tanks enemy damage.”
- Damage to Aircraft increased to 90 (was 80)
- Damage to Infantry increased to 90 (was 80)
- Attack Speed increased to 0.85s (was 0.9s)

Drone Swarm
“Makes Drone Swarms faster and stronger at the expense of health.”
- Damage to Infantry increased to 30 (was 20)
- Health decreased to 220 (was 284)
- Speed increased to Faster (was Fast)

Lt. Strongarm Turret
“Benefits current and upcoming stealthed units to maintain infantry units’ role as Stealth Detectors.”
- Stealth detection removed

Mammoth Tank
“Improves Mammoth Tank’s timing and usability.”
- Cost decreased to 230 (was 250)
- Turret turn speed increased to 200 (was 100)

MG Squad
“Usability improvement.”
- Turn speed increased to 200 (was 120)

Orca
“The Orca was having difficulty dealing with Nod units like Attack Bikes, but it was very capable against Pitbulls from GDI. This equalizes Orca’s effectiveness into both factions.”
- Missiles increased to 4 (was 2)
- Damage decreased to 510 (was 1020)

Predator Tank
“This will solve issues where training had a significant impact on the outcome of certain matchups. Everything will feel the same at equal levels.”
- Health decreased to 2910 (was 3000)

Shockwave Squad
“Shockwaves are becoming too dominant as a starting unit. This will keep a lot of early game relationships the same, but give their hard counters an easier time dealing with them.”
- Health decreased to 400 (was 465)
- Damage increased to 150 (was 136)

War Dogs
“Makes extra chip damage matter more when dealing with War Dogs since members will be barely surviving an attack from Missile Squads or Laser Troopers.”

Wolverine
“Wolverine damage is now more aligned to its specialties”
- Damage to Vehicles decreased to 15 (was 25)

Zone Troopers
“The decreased structure damage was a band-aid for not having strong early-game infantry counters. With the addition of Shockwaves and Flame Troopers, we will be removing their training weights”.
- Structure damage increased to 620 (was 100)

Nod

Avatar
“Raising the cost to match its GDI counterpart.”

Basilisk
“This unit had incredible damage and range. We are taking away some of its survivability so it’s a bit more counterable.”
- Health decreased to 2500 (was 3000)

Cyborgs
“Cyborgs will now do standard damage to structures as well”
- Structure damage increased to 400 (was 100)

Flame Troopers
“Flame Troopers are becoming too dominant as a starting unit. This will keep a lot of early game relationships the same, but give their hard counters an easier time dealing with them.”

- Damage increased to 75 (was 68)

Kane’s Obelisk of Light
