In Remix its less an idea of "Super" unit, but rather Tier3 unit... a T1 tank is likely to die it 1 or 2 hits from an AT weapon, as opposed to 5 or 6 hits.
Also, the idea of rolling 2 or 3 units in to the base shouldn't ever work.. it may be a late game unit, but its still just one unit. An attack force that only cost you 5,000$ or even 10,000$ (thats 3-6 anubis or 1-2 Fafnirs) should never be able to destroy an entire base that costs 100,000$. I recomend investing ALOT more on your units and only using super weapons as a utility. For example, I spen more than 50,000$ on a late game force. Thats closer to 15 Anubis/Osirus tanks with a Mithril to escort each of them. If playing Robot General I only use probably 2 Fafners, but each one has 2 heavy drone controlers (one for repair, one for laser point defense) and atleast 2 of the Avenger drones set to escort it. I also contenue to invest in basic units such as Tomahawk launchers.
One of the secrets to Remix is that Low tech units have excelent value, especialy infantry. Cheap units give you by far the most firepower for your money... Late game units are less cost effective, but pack alot more punch per unit, can survive a short beating, and usualy have either long range or high splash damage etc. The trick is to use both togeather. I use low cost units to do most of the damage while high cost units attack high priority targets. Some specialty units such as Heavy Lighting tanks or Heavy artillery units have so much splash potential that they can keep large hordes of little units under your heel, but keep in mind, that for the same cost of the right cheap units you can do a hell of alot more damage, and if you can get them close enough to engage a late game unit they will own it.
Between now and the next polished release there should be very little new art work done. Instead the focus is on designing, testing, and fixing. the mod has always been so close to finished that its nearly criminal. I'd love to see this through to the end with a real community effort.
