I agree with. you about the inaccuracy of a broad brush, and the problem with inadvertently blessing some profiles that were already balanced towards the strong side. But I do think CB do it pretty well and err on the side of caution. Bolts are decent now, not overpowered. Even Intruders are still balanced with the FD1 buff. The opposing issue is bloat on single profiles (tons and tons of inherent rules), but you are right that those rules are there regardless. Being able to sweep or add them from whole classes without having to modify every profile has been a cool part of the ITS system. Because we're talking about a rule that balances out the inherent problems of Manned TAGs, as well as the power difference in existing profiles. Keeping the Regular order for ejected pilots matches their greater vulnerability, as well as the fact that only the more advanced (ie non-piloted) TAGs get stuff like TO, MSV2, ODD, etc. Fatality1 and specialists are actually well-balanced as well, IMO. They were needed to keep TAGs' power in line with their increasing vulnerability as new infantry troops with anti-armor weapons, EM weapons, etc. are added. TAGs rest in about the same power tier as they used to, only their abilities are more reflective of increased firepower and focused force (plus not automatically losing at specialist-heavy scenarios due to sinking 1/3rd of the army points into firepower).
