More importance to MBT drivers yea, but it doesn't seem like it gives enough importance to the faction as a whole to push all out for it. With the lattice, it's generally at least 20-30 minutes of pushing to get it back if you don't have it, and the faction that does have it, tends to defend it... so yea... a good fight is had over that base... The problem is... it takes you about 5-10 minutes to drive there from WG (depending on faction)... so MBT reinforcements are annoying. So you are usually fighting a tech plant with MBTs being pulled with whatever you are pulling from the warpgate. So it's an uphill battle. If you don't succeed in your first zergrush, it tends to get bogged down into a slugfest, and you'll need larger numbers.
