    This might not be an actual balance change but it's definitely going to affect balance.

    It will totally change defense of expansions; we won't be seeing so many point defenses anymore because of grenadiers and also sparks will become even worse than they already were. Hornets will also see much more use.

    We will likely see a lot of shellers and slammers in the meta with this patch. If so I can't say I think it is such a good substitute. It would have been better to make the leveller more countrable by buffing the counters rather than nerfing the leveller. I guess we'll see. Cheers for continued support

    Edit: One way to do it would be to buff bluehawk and make it target t2 over t1. That would speciallize it as a leveller counter and would simultaneously make it a usefull unit, not just for mobile orbital deffence. That in turn would lead to more sniperbots as they can shoot down the missiles, and there you have the ball rolling and people using units that was not used so frequently before

    No, the game will still crash if said commander is used in a match.
