Seraphim by far.

- T1 thaam/zhuey 6:1 ratio is amazing, combine that with level 1 regen aura and you have some amazing skirmishing potential. Thaam is a nice balance between the mantis and the striker, not too bad overall.
- T2, correctly micro'd ilshies are amazing; combine with zhueys and advanced regen aura for a very cost effective t2 experience. T2 transport drops with zhueys speak for themselves.
- T3, a combination of sniper bots with othuums at a 1:1 ratio is fantastic. Othuum has the highest dps per mass of any of the direct fire T3 units, but obviously its range sucks. Snipers let you control the distance of the fight, if you can get close enough then mass for mass the othuums will beat percies/harbs/bricks.
- T4, chicken's range is amazing, if correctly micro'd you can do a lot of damage to other direct fire T4 at long range. Combine it with a small pack of othuums for huge DPS if another T4 unit gets close and you have a winning combination.

Choosing a faction because of balance :imfine:

There is something very poetic about taking out hordes of over the top hovercraft, skittering mechanids, and interdimensional alien invaders with good ol' reliable tank what shoot bullet. I'll always be a sucker for the generic human faction that needs to rely on basic, yet rugged gear and the heroism of the people who were sent to die in them. be that the UEF, the Imperial Guard, the GDI, Terrans, what have you. They dont look like bull, and they dont play like bull either.

But in reality i play random on FAF because haha you know

I get that totally, but for me it's all about the way the units play. Something really satisfying about finding a new way to use a faction unit, knowing all of the mass costs etc off by heart, what counters what etc etc ...
