    This is terrible. The Grandmaster chapel says it can buy land combat unit with faith. However, it is hard coded not to let you buy formation class "land combat units", but only let you buy unit class recon. melee, ac, hc, lc, siege,ranged units, and you cannot buy GDR with faith. That's terrible.

    Why do GDR only able to be purchased by gold not faith?

    No, it is amazing that you can't. It's freaking cheesy to get free GDRs with no consequences. Thank F you can't.

    I purchased some GDRs with faith, but that was shortly after GS release. Did they change it?

    Is there a save? I check the code and the grandmaster chapel is hard coded to only purchase recon, melee, AC, LC, HC, siege and ranged units.

    GDR's used to have the "CLASS_MELEE" tag before the June update, which would have allowed them to be purchased with Faith.

    As transformers are not very realistic you should only be able to get them with faith.
    But in game the ability to get masses of faith makes it quite OP and may have been an MP requirement for removal of this ability. However with the ability to buy 20 indie bands late in the game one wonders what is really considered OP.

    I guess that's also why we have barbarian GDRs, since melee is the default type for what barb camp generates.

    If I've learned anything from anime it's that faith should be consumed as fuel for the GDR.

    GDR isn't really a consideration in MP - at that point you might as well just win the space victory and call it a day. I'm guessing it's an oversight due to the tag change in June.
