Most of the time when i see VS win a battle they do so with numbers not overpowered weapons. TR same thing. NC same thing. The moment one faction gets a pop advantage everyone pulls out the old OP list of things that bother them in that faction. And then when they loose pop advantage the nerf list becomes a Buff list. And this circle jerk continues every year over and over and over. During prime time of this game it was so bad with pop advantage they balanced the factions based on their population. TR which mostly has the most players got their weapons and vehicles nerfed since they had the numbers and when things calmed down they got a few buffs again. Vs tended to be the most under popped and thus got more buffs which then as it balanced out was nerfed down. And honestly many don't want the factions to be equal in everything that ruins the fun of the game. we have 3 factions in a balance on traits and abilites. This makes the game more interesting and varied and most important fun. you can have up to 3 characters for free in this game make one for each faction and try them out. It's not as OP as you might think once you get to test them out for a longer period of time. Many things in this game are situational and once you are in the right situation you will wreak havoc on your foes and when the situation is wrong you will get rekt like a fresh scrub dropped in, in the old welcome tutorial this game used to have.
