I don’t necessarily think it’s all about the troop itself but also about the support. YJ just doesn’t have good support. What it does have is sometimes even situational. Doctors The one of the things (out of many) that pissed me off about the Uprising was losing the Tokusetsu. YJ currently has in all Sectorals AVA 1 Doctor! When you are playing a game in which points on the board matter, this is a big deal! In tournaments that count Victory Points, this is a big deal! So what they have is medics? PH is already on average lower than WIP and then you give an it a -3 and no re-rolls for a cube?!!! For example, Hollow Men have WIP 15 Engineers to bring them back, Haqq Jannisaries/Asawira have WIP 17 Doctor in their link and then can have a lot of cheap ones too! Both of those troops are good for them in any situation. Whereas a Zuyong/Shang Ji can have an Engineer/KHD that might never use that skill the whole game. If you take one of the Remotes you may use the Engineer for that one thing. Ikari has more doctors to bring back Wu Ming that YJ does! I feel they made a huge mistake of not giving the Haidao a Doctor option. Hacking KHD and AHD are great! If you are going up against something hackable. Waste of points if not. All of our other hackers are mediocre at best. The good ones are very expensive. Nomads have the best hacking support of course, Haqq at least has many cheap ones with WIP 14. Other support ISS at least has some smoke for the Wu Ming but it will never be a lot. Vanilla has a bit more. But Dashat, Ikari, Nomads, Combined, even Haqq has more and probably more reliable.
