Like all other unit packs, this use of these completely depends on how much you play online. If you play a lot online then they are highly reccomended as it adds to the number of units that can be used so it adds more tactical depth.

But if you just play singleplayer this is missable as DLC units tend to be pretty unbalanced in campaign mode because you can spam them.
