I am sick of playsing Empire at War and being hit constantly by waves of Garrison Units. THATS NOT WHAT HAPPENS IN A BATTLE! You dont have a building that magicly "makes" new people that fight. Garrisons are bad. If i destroy a squad of 2-M Tanks, I want to know that those units are dead and off the field. Not that 4 more are about to crawl out of a friging building on the other side of the map. An how do you remove the "civilians." I know that if a battle was raging, i sure as hell wouldn't run out side and be cannon fodder, i'd keep my ass inside and not die. I get annoyed when I get hit by waves of useless civilians. Basicly, what I want to do is remove the garrison ability from all ground buildings, and allow space stations to only have a few squads of fighters and bombers. This will make combat alot more tacticaly based. Your not going to throw away your 2 stormtrooper squads in a stupid move, cuz once their dead-they stay dead! I want to make it so that if you dont REALLY think about an attack of defence strategy, your going to lose. Losing a few tanks in the centre could be the end of your attack. This is more of a rant then anything...im going to start this now... Just wondering, does anyone else think im right, or mad?

Legacy of War are removing the Infinite Garrison unit ability. You get one load of Garrison units after that you are on your Own!

:bows: I agree on the part of civies. But without garrisons the game would probably never end, because if your out of units in GC, and the attacker is out of units. then your screwed with no way out except quitting. and your not a quitter are you? :0wned:

no, what i meant is that garrisions shouldnt exist when your playing WITHIN space or land combat. You can still build units in GC, units just arnt spawned during combat

im not sure on this, how do you know their are not countless units of tanks/walkers/TIE's/Wings in the ahnger/building. i like the idea of Corvettes and frigates hyperspacing in, 'cuase thats what happens in war. so ur saying u dont want the imperial Star destroyers/acclamators spawning TIE's although TIE's cant Hype in.

What Im saying is I dont see how its feasible to have an endless supply of units. A couple in the star ships, yes. Endless supplies from star bases and barracks and light factories...no. big no. It ruins game play. If your attacking a planet, and you destroy 8 At-st's, you think "woo! they are toasted now." then another 8 spawn from the base. Unrealistic. I can accept an inital garrison, but not everlasting reinforcements
