Often I push the (experienced - non newbie)opponent back to his last village, and can even control the map so he can´t really leave. But suddenly, he buys air strikes (USS IOWA).
This means I instantly loose both camps on his territory, and ussually even two lesser camps on my own territory. So it´s suddenly an equal fight again, and even in his opponents favour: although I am guarding a hill overlooking his last village, he kills most of my villages, and eventually me, becouse he respawns nearby, I have no respawn due to airstrikes so eventually .... he will get me.
Someone sitting at his last village after such ownage, should not be doing so much damage so easily and CHEAPLY..... it´s completely out of order when compared to other weapons.
So does anyone agree? I don´t say it´s overpowered, but people sitting at their last village should be coming with elite and surprising tactics to turn battle over, not sit there and destroy half of map with 150costing airstrikes.
I don´t remember the map names well, but air strikes seem to dominate salt lakes, quicksilver, and heck, i even saw a player going for them back to 3rd tier at smackdown
