Remember when it used to be advantageous to leave Night Sister Zombie at low gear? It seems we have a repeat of that strategy with 501st clones. By leaving ARC Trooper around G8, he will die quickly to an AOE and 5s will sacrifice himself, granting the rest of the 501st his stats. Suddenly, Rex and Echo are super troopers, and even the low gear ARC has 5's old stats and is much more formidable.
I know what you are going to say - don't do an AOE and kill ARC. Sure. Now tell that to the AI playing your defense.
So, will CG fix this flaw like they fixed the Zombie flaw? Or can I look forward to inferior clone squads running through me using this cheese strategy in future GACs?
Note: I am not talking about this in a GAS squad, I'm talking about it for mid-level players who use Shaak or Rex lead with their 501st.
