what i think needs to be done.
-Dretch reverted, it was fine in 1.1, and though you may say it was way to powerful. I can take out most dretches 1 v 1 with a hummie rifle. I'd even go as far to say that rifles hummies are too powerful, as a scenario is often witnessed when a load of hummies do an early rush and get s2 in a minute. But either way, dretch changes should be reverted, they were fine as they were in 1.1, fun, and pretty much balanced.
-Poison kill, needs to come back. It really helps joining at a s2 or s3 game for dretches, and is an asset. Med packs are more than a match for poison, and it seems stupid to change two balanced coutnerparts.
-Laser rifle. A good change. Laser rifle was barely used as a skilled dretch could get right in your face.
-Luci. Needs to be changed back, though many players may say they like it, as i have said many times before it has been turned into a god tool. I see no reason for it to be upgraded, as it was a good enough weapon before hand, easily regaining your credz which you used to buy it. Probably the most obvious change.
-Rant. I agree with the 350hp, however the regeneration rate is far too slow. It should not be as quick as 1.1 but it is far too slow. A player shouldnt be out of play for so long, it just isnt fun anymore. I say a semi fast regen rate, and when you boosterised it should be 1.1 regen. Not only will this be more balanced but it will increase the importance of forward bases.
-Regen Auras. No, no, no, no. It is cruel to ask any alien at S3 to go basi. Why? Unless your super pro you will die quickly. Unless your super pro you will not get many kills. And you will block, and be tked, just because of getting in the way, even if you only want to help. Like with the rant, you are removing the fun from the game, for the sake of making things more balanced.
Turrets. I dont really know. I actively havent seen any difference to the rets outputs, they still seem to kill and get destroyed the same rate. But if you say they make a difference, i shall take your word. One point however, it is extremely easy to jump the RC now, now that theres a charge p period.
You seem to be sacrificing the fun factor for alot of your changes. And gimping the aliens far too much. Things really need to change.
