Since the 3rd Title Upgrade we’ve seen a few minor changes to a lot of gameplay, but the hardcore Anders rushers out there are still sticking to their Gauss guns, only to be met by fail after fail.
The last few days ive been playing mostly 3v3, and although Gauss might still be successful on 1v1, i have noticed a massive decrease in effectiveness in the larger games, to the point its getting increasingly annoying to play with an Anders player now. Read more »
Argh, isn’t it annoying?

This gives incredible flexability to tactics with the ability to change unit type quickly without having to worry too much about cost, therefore getting maxed out units for countering quicker then others. This benefit has also given the bad reputation of the Gauss spam, or even warthog rush before countering got a grip on it.
