Hello
I'm really happy with the new ultimate scavangers, It makes for an interesting new obstackle in the skirmishs . Although I have issue with them that there a bit over aggressive. Through a bit of skill and understanding I can survive there initial onslaughts. But one weird thing I'm finding is if the enemy is set to easy. The scavangers have the habit of annihilating them before I even get to them. Is this likely to be re-balanced in a later version? Its really weird winning the game when I haven't left the base.
Thanks

Further note to my last post. I played a 3 player map with the others plays set at normal nexus players. The scavangers just destroyed them both and I won.... I was still building up my base....
The ultimate scavs... fun to play but they keep winning the game for me. They need to be toned down.... there way to aggressive.
