Is Anders a good Leader now?

So I've been playing Anders since release, and I've notices a lot of changes. Before I describe Anders, let me describe the big changes to the whole cast. Jackrabbits are now much worse, and going marines seems to be enough to counter them. (Still need to test redline rabbits though) Therefore, infantry is much much stronger now. Anders with her R&D can buy infantry tier 1, and grenade throw faster and cheaper, which is her advantage. I feel she could struggle against cutter's faster infantry, and kinsano's redline and heat of battle leader abilities. As for Colony... I'm not sure yet. lol I've had about 5 games with colony, he seems underwhelming to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vwf_1rEkrvQ So what do you guys think? Can anders be op again?

I don't know about OP, but Anders is certainly viable again. As for Colony, if you go Skitterers plus choppers and get map control, he's pretty good. The Hunter Captain is a good rival to Atriox's Chosen as well. Still though, I'm switching my main from Atriox to Decimus instead of Colony. Decimus got buffed haaaard and Atriox got nerfed haaaaard.

^^^^ I am finding myself doing the same. Atriox's powers I think are just too expensive now, especially with leader points being harder to come by. I find myself leaning towards Decimus too. Colony's Skitterer/Chopper combo is good but I think its a bit too expensive myself. I have found some good success playing with early mass grunts/skitter. Infact you can have a full pop 80/80 army within 5-6 minutes with Colony Drop. Pretty strong opener that can win you games quick but still allows you to transition well. Other then that, depending on if it really works out to be a reliable opener, I don't find that Colony has any mid or late game advantages over Decimus. His leader powers are just better imo.
