Short Description: I tried my hands at balancing the AW1 COs.
The CO profiles detail the Power Bar length and stat changes (in AW2 defense format).
The game defines firepower and defense differently than its sequels.
Defense is damage taken, aka +10% defense = 90% damage taken. Each unit can have individual values to damage dealt and taken, and there’s a universal value pair for the whole army. The universal values are usually 110% damage dealt and 90% damage taken during Power. For COs with unite boosts/weaknesses, these add up. E.g. Max has 170% on his direct combat units. With 110% universal damage on top it adds up to 187%. Drake’s 80% air units become 88%.
COs which werern’t changed:
Power Bar: 30,000 -> 20,000
Direct combat vehicle damage: 150% -> 125%, directs during Power: 170% -> 140% (adds up to 154% with the universal 110% damage boost)
Universal damage taken during Power: 90% -> 80%
Capture rate: 150% -> 125%
Capture rate during Power: 150%
Her foot soldiers lose the additional defense boost during Power: 140% damage dealt, 80% damage taken -> 140% damage dealt, 90% damage taken (with universal boosts: 154% damage dealt, 81% damage taken)
Foot soldiers no longer get a debuff.
Indirect damage during power: 150% -> 130% (adds up to 143% with the universal 110% damage boost)
Power Bar: 50,000 -> 40,000
Universal damage taken: 80% -> 90%
Set to have the same luck/bad luck as everyone else.
Universal damage dealt: 100% -> 95% (110% during Power, negating the penalty)
Ground and naval units gain an extra terrain star
Power Bar: 50,000 -> 60,000
His air units lose the defense boost during Power. Originally damage taken was 90% (from air boost) x 130% (universal) = 117%. Now air units takes 130% damage as well. (They still deal 115% x 80% = 92% damage.)
Power Bar: 40,000 -> 30,000
Universal damage dealt: 80% -> 110%
Universal damage taken: 80% -> 110%
Universal damage dealt during Power: 90% -> 120%
Universal damage taken during Power: 70% -> 100%
