I'm not forgetting anything either, those other units play into why the War Machines were weak as well, in that they were not intended to be the main threat; they were cast in the role of disposable enemy. There's nothing wrong with utilizing that role on any technical level; you wanted them to be stronger because that's how you like them to be portrayed but that's not a critical comment on any technical level, it's just a personal preference. There's nothing wrong with expressing that preference either, but that doesn't make what Humpries did "wrong" but rather that what he did was not to your taste and there's a big difference between those two types of statements.
