If you are not in GDI., anyone who LGs you would get -10% gains.

Theres already -10% gains on being in GDI.

If Clan GDI is implemented finally it could serve as an extra incentive to stay out of it tho. Right now I don't see a use for it except to strengthen griefers in express and primary. And why should it be limited to landgrabs?

Reasoning-

Non-GDI users have to manage SDI, troops, tanks, turrets and build at same time. If you think about it,. there's really not much incentive to go NON-GDI.

The -10% you're describing Gerdler is against all attacks for GDI members.
So,. if you're in GDI,. it doesnt matter who you attack it's always -10%.

My sugestion makes it so if you attack someone who is not in GDI,. you lose an additional -10% gains.

My suggest helps make non-GDI less of a LG target.

If you think about it,. more people who play non-gdi would help other strats: like MB reseller. If you make more incentives for non-gdi users then other techs would be sought after including other types of units.

Right now it's just jets/turrets, bus / res if you join GDI,. which almost all do.

GDI on EXPRESS basically makes all the other techs pointless, including troops/tanks. Unless you decide to go to war.

You are talking about the GDI that is server-specific to express and primary.

Your suggestion makes topfeeding as a non-GDI against GDI targets immensely lucurative tho. That is a big problem in Primary and sometimes in express as well.

Its an imperfect GDI to counter imperfect players who used to ruin those servers. I have plenty of netting resets in primary in e2025 and never once when I was not massively suicided by someone I never even touched, lategame after 40+ days.

In express the first set I netgained after my hiatus I was about to win with a theo casher but I forgot GDI and bam I was reminded why I stopped playing this game all these years ago: https://www.eestats.com/express/oldcountry/1287/6

Set after I remembered GDI: https://www.eestats.com/express/oldcountry/1292/2

And the two sets after that and all sets I wanted to go for the win: https://www.eestats.com/express/oldcountry/1298/1 and https://www.eestats.com/express/oldcountry/1302/41

I do see that the lack of troop and tank demand among players hurts the market, and I do think that it would be nice to fix that to potentiate real TTRs and TMBR resellers (no just jumpers). But your suggestion doesnt really do that.

Btw, when GDI was changed in primary and express the main concern was not that it should be balanced Im sure, and neither should it have been. Because the game itself was not balanced. It very much favored the suiciders and the suicider playstyle and it was killing netgaining on those servers as there were too many suiciders and they could do whatever they wanted without skill or effort.

So the primary and express GDI is a bandaid and unless we get pretty considerable formula changes or griefing becomes against the rules and a deletable offence you kinda have to live with this bandaid.
