But you don’t have hoplites and mongoose sprinkled around to support formations. Usually you either go pillars or mongoose as your mainline or you go mongoose/hoplites early on and then transition to tanks. Same as titan/percy.
Thing is, t3 stage has an answer to brutal mainline tank spam in the form of mobile arty and snipers. This doesn’t really exist at t2 stage so it’s t2 that’s the less dynamic “make tank and walk forward” sort of gameplay.
