Ignoring "git gud" and balance for a moment, they're simply just not fun to play against. Not to say that amazing solo pieces like TAGs and Swiss Guards should have free reign over the table, but it's no fun when a piece you cannot get to can shut down a large chunk of the board in a way that linked Kamau snipers and TR bots simply can't. It becomes extra unfun the moment you include wide Jammer fields provided by Ghazi that can very easily ensure that your expensive, non-Veteran pieces cannot cross the midline. That isn't particularly fun to me. To have a unit that, in a game where you risk eating a crit every time you engage in a firefight, can accomplish a lot more at very little risk while often ignoring a lot of core gameplay mechanics that tend to keep other, equitable pieces in check isn't really that enjoyable an experience to play against even if its impact on the competitve scene is marginal or overstated by forum users. Replacing Jammers with E/Marats and/or E/Mitters would keep their role very much alive and remove a lot of frustration from Jammers while still giving their users some utility out of those profiles in a less meta shifting, likely more fun, way. Edit: replaced "shouldn't have free reign" with "should have free reign" because I realized there was a double negative. Made paragraph 2 less run-on-y and more coherent.
