    Hey all! We’ve been working hard to get a full balance pass in place over January. You’ll notice there have been a huge amount of changes based on feedback we’ve received from our players and replays. We’ve also added in 3 entirely new units to the game, including 2 new submarines and a T2 fighter that can travel between planets!

    Exactly. Subs risk becoming a liability because everyone has bombers. But if only T2 air counters them outside of naval units, it opens up a more strategic metagame where someone who loses control over the sea has to actually invest in a specialized counter to gain back the upper hand.
