    Not for Nomads though! Grenzer Links are just as unpopular as Moira's, and Krizas are all the rage. Hopefully that changes in the future.

    And same happens in Foreign Company, Kriza and LI Securitate are way more attractive then the Sons of Failure MI link team.

    Even when HI with only one full wound are becoming more common and when the existance of LI, REM and WB units with the same second full wound increases?

    Shakti (MI), Sheskiin (LI) and the Rudras (REM) are the only new 2W units IIRC. Not that much of an increase, I would say.
    What has definitely increased is the pseudo second wound units with NWI and Shock Immunity. Not all factions get them though and yeah I guess YuJing only gets them with the downside of being Hackable, while Haqq and Aleph get them on every other troop type without drawbacks.

    Holy shit even Shakti has 2Wounds...?

    Going from IA to now, out of the 9 new HI units released ( Krit and Tai included. ), 5 of them are 1W HI. One without Shock Immunity even.



    So again, what is really the defining factor of HI anymore? Being the only place with 2 real Wounds isn't it anymore. Being the only place where everyone gets 2 Wounds isn't it either anymore.
    Pretty sure only defining trait that remains for them is having the added IMM-2 effect from E/M and the majority of them being Hackable...?

    The troop types always been kinda messy and yeah its gets even messier with all the new releases. Why classify something when you can just add traits to it (like Hackable, Vulnerability, different MOV values etc.). It would be way cleaner. Maybe we will see it in the next edition, some rules like Vulnerability seem to suggest it might go that route, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Paying lots more points for the 'privilege' of being hackable.

    I mean, for all their faults... and weaknesses... and competition... and cost...
    HI still are pretty nice and usable.
    They look cool, they bring cool stuff generally, and they are usable.
    Ours in particular, of course.
    Might be more niche and a tad bit harder to use than most everything else, but still, sometimes an HMG in armor-plated arms is what you need most.

    Very true.

    And it's a scifi game, why are people wandering around a combat zone in less than powered armor?!?

    Because somehow being a backwards society with XXI century technology makes you BETTER at warfare instead of worse, i. e. Ariadna
