It is. If you want a good smoke screen for a large attack, it will cost you points.Of course it can work in some cases, but that's a whole lot of very big shells on a very small space.
It is precisely because high quality troops are favored and well worth the extra points spent on them. This results in a troop quality arms race, in which both sides command armies of superhumans who never break. We wanted to avoid that. I have already played a few battles using either this or "all units Typical" rule and liked it.I reread the original rules and I am curious why you agreed on only using regular troops with 0 leadership and standard motivation.
I think that the current morale model (casualties provide a huge hit on morale while suppression is just a temporary effect) really favors higher experience troops with high morale (leadership modifiers are kinda useless as they change once the leader gets shot).
