I priced Churchills at 210 F (from 190 F) and repair kits at 100 Mun until their pop issue is addressed. This should functionally give players one less Churchill to fight with and more of a Mun drain on their repair kits (in line with cost of repair kits on tanks with similar HP pools & armour values)

That being said, I honestly see no reason why churchills should cost 190 F even once we address pop cost. MP and doctrine upgrade costs are a different question. They're essentially somewhere between jumbos (300 F, 13 pop) and pershings (545 F, 16 pop) in terms of their ability to soak damage, be it with much shoddier DPS output (though still good enough in terms of AI).

They're flatly inferior to Jumbos and Pershings at soaking damage, not somewhere in-between.

Jumbos and Pershings have Pershing Armour and higher base health (Jumbos 811, Pershings 990) versus the Churchil's 700 HP and Churchil Armour.

How "good" is Churchil Armour? Quick table comparing some commonly-faced weapons:

Gun           Sherman   Churchil   Pershing
Pak           0.755        0.527        0.495
Shrek        0.877       0.529         0.458
Marder      0.614        0.58          0.321
Panzer 4    0.622        0.58         0.325
Panther     1.129        1.068         0.6
Tiger           1.000       0.8299       0.7

It does pretty well vs Paks and Shreks, granted - but the benefit over Sherman armour is marginal at best when facing anything vehicle-based. It's also one of the slowest tanks in the game at 3.75 speed and piss-poor acceleration.

The gun is flatly put - terrible. I know you're convinced it's an infantry killing machine - but it has less splash than a StuG (not joking, look it up).

I know that I'm retiring my churchill company for the time being. With a repair kit that costs 25% more than a Panther's per tank, and 210 FU a pop.. If I do play CW Armour it'll be with AVREs, Crocs or Cromwells - even I can't make the Mk 4 Alcoholic meme work as it stands.

Well, I was factoring in the 200 extra HP from ablative armour, which puts them pretty much in between. You agree it does pretty well versus paks and shreks, which make up the mainstay of axis AT. That in itself is enough of a justification for them to not be 190 fuel. Essentially you're saying players should just bring a 400-500 Fuel, 16 pop heavy tank to counter a 190 fuel tank 10 pop tank on the British side. And then of course they need to keep their 2 panthers or tigers around long enough to be able to deal with 6 of those in total. The economics of that just dont add up.

I never said they are infantry killing machines, but they do a reliable enough job killing infantry and even penetrating LVs and medium tanks for the ridiculously low price point. You're being misleading in your claim that the gun is completely terrible.

You're also being very dramatic in your response to a 20 Mun price increase on a repair kit and a 20 fuel increase on churchills. I very much doubt your build will "no longer work" but of course you'd rather not put it to test than risk being proven wrong. I would much rather we start with a pop change as we can all agree 10 pop on them is completely broken but  until that's sorted I'm sure most will agree this a very reasoned stopgap measure.

The armour type matters a lot - Even with Ablative it wouldn't be somewhere in between, but perhaps somewhere just below, or significantly below Jumbos depending on the target. I don't agree that this, in itself, is justification for them to be more expensive fuel wise. They're tanky'ish, sure, but they don't offer much beyond that tankyness.

They do well against paks and shreks - but both paks and shreks can effectively out-maneouver the thing. Two paks, used well, that can cover each other are a near-enough insurmountable obstacle to 2 Mk4s. If even M4A1 "shitshow" shermans were used to fight that they could handily win, by contrast.

I don't think it's dramatic at all to say that 100 mu to repair a Mk4 Churchill is ridiculous when you pay 120 for a tiger or 80 for a panther. These are not good tanks. They can pot-shot infantry in a slow and ponderous manner - but when it happens it shouldn't be on the Church's grounds. Nobody other than me seems to use them to any real effect, and I feel like there's a reason for it - and that's just the sheerly terrible gun the vehicle fields. It requires allies to play well and trust the church in it's damage soak capacity, otherwise it's useless. Since you can't truthfully afford anything other than the churchills in the first place.

The below graphs show how in the case of these supply disruption, other gas imports are brought in using existing infrastructure.

I used them against you and speedy yesterday, after the nerf and got 21k score, with a combined 60 or so kills on the 5 churchills. Not to mention the sheer amount of AT and armour that was lost by you guys in trying to combat them. So yeh, i do think you are being overly dramatic.

Anyway, that anecdotal evidence but their pop needs to go up first and then they can be reassessed

Stugs are already pretty MP efficient. I'd be hesitant to lower it even further for fear of an Axis GMC.

AIRBORNE: .30 Cal Airborne HMG: 325 MP 50 MU to 325 MP 75 MU (I thought we established its identical to reg .30)

The crew still has much better pack-up times and airborne armour + airborne deployment - costing more than the regular MG is warranted.

Quote
INFANTRY: Replacements: 60 MP to 100 MP

I think it should be 120 MP. A single reinforced rifle costs 20 MP in-game, and you get 120 in-game MP per purchase. That's enough to reinforce a squad from 3 man to 6 man twice. 120 Mp to turn two near-dead rifle squads to full fighting efficiency isn't much.

Quote
Mines

Yeah OK, let's be more incremental.

Quote
Stuart: 280 MP 160 FU to 280 MP, 140 FU

The stuart is actually excellent, outDPSing Cromwells in the AT role. I'm not too keen on buffing them.

Quote
RSE: AVRE cost from 460MP 275 FU to 460 MP 250 FU

I've literally not seen an AVRE in the past 3 months - and 250 FU still keeps them pretty pricey for what is a very niche tank.
They were priced at 275 when they could get +15 range from a doc and vet 3, 220 FU would just revert them to what they used to cost before access to those buffs (which now do not exist).
I'd say 220 FU and see how it performs with a proper enticement for players to try it again. If it's then too much we just up the price to 240-250.

Quote
JP4/StuG 3: 275 MP 175 FU to 250 MP 150 FU I think JP4s are fine really, but mb can go down to 165

I think they'd continue to be fine at 150 FU, but as you and Dire both think it's too much, sure - 275 MP 165 FU.

Quote
Puma 20mm: 280 MP 140 FU to 260 MP 100 FU prob going to regret this when people start fielding 4 at a time
Maybe - we can always look to up it back to 115-125FU if they're too much.

Quote
Puma 50mm: 280 MP 160 FU to 280 MP 140 FU (These are not so bad, effective at hunting down shermans, etc

Compromise of 260 MP 140 FU?

Quote
Panzergrens: 215 MP to 205 MP (Aren't they functionally closer to grens than rifles?
Wouldn't say so. 3 (near enough) volks rifles + G43 is nice due to the G43, but not really close to 4x Gren rifles. They end up being in a niche where they'll beat rifles at medium range, but not really threaten them long or short.

Quote
Panzergrens: Vet Sergeant: 25 MP to 20 MP (sprint for 10 mp is too cheap, its great utility value)

10 Mp might be too cheap, but 20 MP for sprint still seems a bit much. 15 MP for now?

Quote
Panzergrens: AT Nade 20 MU to 10 MU (this isnt going to make any difference, the ability needs a rework)

Agreed, but until then maybe at least somebody will buy them. Alternatively, do Dire's proposal and bundle with Incendiaries for a total of 35 MU.
