Then they should try to make it more useful. If the unit has no real use or purpose they should give it one, as right now there is no reason for it to exist. If Ranged units are better at distant attack and sometimes even exploring, why skirmishers? if light calvary is better for scouting, razing and moving behind enemy lines (no ZOC), why skirmishers? As it seems, you could remove the whole skirmisher class and it would be okay, nothing would be lost. I read in the past some complaints about how limited variation was with land units. I'm personally pretty okay with the amount of land units we have now, but I cannot help but feel that Spec Ops (and the previous skirmishers units) have potential to give something more and new. Something that could make them feel a unique land unit, with a real purpose... or at least turned them useful to some degree!
