What you are complaining about has nothing to do with what the OP is asking for. If TR needs balance tweaks, then the TR can have balance tweaks. Nobody is saying that faction balance shouldn't be looked at as an ongoing process. All the OP is saying is that we have more than enough common pool weapons and vehicles, and that he would love to see more empire specific equipment (as would I!). Would you still be opposed to empire specific equipment if the TR received balance tweaks that you felt put them in a good place?
