Looking good for a patch :) I don't remember discussing the VP cost lowering but I don't really have a problem with it. I still think Flare Rounds should be unlimited uses with a decent price attached.

They got buffed significantly without a price increase when they were balanced before. We wanted to change the way they work, not make them better.

Several nice changes that make sense. Good replace for pineapple express that wasnt really working, will be interesting to test out. Price reduction of KT makes it feel slightly less arbitrary. Many small changes with pricing.

The terror doctrine ability "hunter killers" still needs to be looked at in my opinion. Sure, the (quite bad) volks rifles do in theory make them better at range and in some other very specific situations. The entire unit design though is made to be close up, or staying away from battle altogether as a perfectionism repair squad. At a fairly steep 250 mp there just is no way at all that anyone would pay for the upgrade with vp's (an actual cost) and take the volks rifles on this squad instead of a gren squad at 240mp with superior rifles. It's is simply bad and thoughtless design.

The one situation where it might be even a little useful would be with perfectionism and no bundles, where you try to keep them far away taking potshots, this means that you have to buy another doctrine ability to make this one even slightly useful, and even then not very much at all.

Something I noticed that is missing on the Bug Fix list...is Burning Bombardment actually fixed now or am I still stuck with it being a single use off map no matter how many are bought?
