I keep hearing that Mercs are still not competitive. I believe this is a hold over from pre-Damiano and Galleon days when Mercs could not handle armour.
What do you think Mercs are missing now to be a top tier faction? I must admit I am new to the merc scene but the more I look at the models and synergy i find it hard to believe that they are lower than anyone. Highborn has a great selection of models and jacks. 4* (admittedly better now with galleon on the way) has some of my favorite self supported Khador units.
Am I crazy to think mercs are now super competitive? If I am, what are we missing?
(After reading Ashlynns card, maybe an arc node... but I feel mercs are like Khador in this regard, not going to happen)
