They dont suck. They arent as good as in yr but they are still really usefull. A well placed para can kill a ore refinery or war factory in 4-5 seconds upon landing.Which is a good tactic if you preasure with rockies/tanks at the same time. They can also be used defensivly to put infront of your tanks to give a huge advantage in tankfights. 8 GI;s infront of your tanks/dogs early game when both players doesnt have that many tanks is a huge deal since they can kill the enemies dogs so quickly and then do good dmg to their tanks. You can just alt-gr them so they stay close to eachother and keep em infront of your tanks while moving forward, when the enemy tries to engage just deploy your GI;s asap, together with the dogs they provide exellent fodder and keeps your tanks healthy while they do good dmg aswell. If he goes for deso you can always just retreat abit (desos move slowly) send in rockies or plane depending if he has flak track or not to deal with the deso then just keep pressing forward.
GI;s can also be placed on cliffs to gain height advantage and better range+harder to reach for the enemy units. For example on south-pacific you can place your GI;s just ontop of the cliff if the opponent built abit to close to the cliff-edge and just deploy your desos near the cliff-edge and blast his buildings down. GG)
Paradrop is extremly versitile, and can do exellent dmg, vs most stuff on the ground + insane damage to structures and they leved up to elite so quickly aswell.
- Can always be used defensivly to great effect (especially early game)
- Can be used to quickly take out enemy structures for a quick win (good if you can divert his attention with splits)
- Can be placed on cliffs to gain map control and to possibly reach some structures due to added range from height advantage)
-Due to low cost they get elite really early
-Can quickly be placed anywhere, anytime (aslong as you got one ready)
So dont tell me paras sucks in this game;D
