Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

I think it's india/Japan/China which just suffer from coin crate starts because it actually slows them down early game, while civs that can age 1 TP comfortably (most notably, France and Germany) are reaaally strong at 100w starts. Your analysis with regards to Dutch is wrong. Realistically speakin...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

I think a cool way to balance crate starts would instead of the game calculating the random crate(s) as the game loads, it instead chooses from like 3 set crate starts for each civ, each ranked in terms of power. lets say the patch team makes the three possible crate starts for india 400w/300f, 400...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

Hmm. Only those civs make difference with random crates? Aztec: If it starts with 300w they will rush faster though they dont need to chop 100w which is insane time advantage. British: can make manor + market with 300w, or fast manor boom French: can tp, some times on re can clikc on age up 2:30 Ot...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

That's a good idea, though I don't think it's necessary. The game's pretty decently balanced with random crates. At some point we just have to accept that balance is not going to get better. We have 14 civs and it's impossible for balance to be so close that a change like that is warranted imo. Yea...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

Yeah it would be cool if china got 2 goats with random crates. Then you would have to decide if you want to gather both in discovery for the age time, or wait until they are fully fattened for an even stronger, albeit slower, timing. Or you could gather one and fatten one to get a nice in-between. I...

Re: Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

There is a list of wanted changes, it's not final yet but there should be a new patch before the tournament starts. Do you have the list of changes to share? Not until it's final. A couple of changes are almost certain to be in there by now though so I guess I can share those: Chinese - Now also ge...

Why is there no new Patch Version before the the Autumn Tournament?

It is fairly evident from the data collected by Goodspeed and Pecelot concerning civ play/win-rates and public opinion on civ strength that there is a fair amount of imbalance in the current patch. Why, the question is, is there not a new patch version before the Autumn Tournament, as far as I am aw...

Re: Parfait on the HC system

I think that DE should just remove the homecity system and have all cards available at any time. Personally, I do like the homecity system to a degree, but I definetly think it has its faults (mostly due to the shitty starting deck and how slow leveling up is). Doing something like that would also a...

Re: Sioux Treaty Guide

With 10 teepees and attack dance cetans have like 150+ attack and 34 range, as well as double the rof of wakinas. Is camping with cetans and some rifle riders or axe riders for anti-art a good strategy? It seems like if you got a nice choke going it would be impossible for them to attack you head on.

Re: Moving the Covered Wagon shipment to the Colonial Age

Would be so lame honestly. You can just pick a civ that can age up fast, and ship that card first. No one will be fast enough to deny that tc. So you get free mapcontrol, and you basically have ports' bonus, plus your own civ bonus. Or even think about ger/fre going for turtle ff/semi-ff, being abl...

Re: Moving the Covered Wagon shipment to the Colonial Age

could be quite interesting actually. Realistically wouldn't be all that powerful just because if you can safely send a covered wagon and lay down a town center in age 2, its most likely better to just send 700 coin and age up instead. However I feel like the card would see more use than it does now ...
