FA Forever isn't just the lobby, it also comprises a set of community patches that change the game balance substantially. As a veteran FA player, I'd like to quickly see how FA Forever is different in gameplay terms: how units are stronger or weaker than before, and what the additions like the HQ factories do. The online unit database is a good starting point, but only shows each unit on a separate page, and doesn't compare units to the base game. OTOH, the patch notes are confusing to read, because they describe one change at a time instead of the overall change (some changes are modified further in later patches, etc.).

Is there a single summary where I can see the changes for each unit, ideally with discussion, so that I can start playing FA Forever effectively?

I know you asked this a long time ago, but are there any specific changes you wish to know? There is a lot of information on each unit, and having a single summary page for each bit of information for each unit in both games may not be viable. If you are talking about things like health, damage and things that are just plain number comparisons, this might be a bit more feasible. – ranger10700 Mar 12 '15 at 22:18
It's not really summary pages for each unit, but an overall summary. What got stronger, what got weaker, any mechanics changes that are important for a new player, and some discussion on what strategies don't work any more. The specifics I can pick up as I go along, or look up one at a time. I'm just missing an introduction. – Dan Hulme Mar 16 '15 at 8:38
