Re: Intervention card for Japan

Small digression, is way of the bow worth sending after nerf? Is 2 range and los worth full card investment?

As I recall, Yabasume fulfills your criteria. Starts as disciplined in age 3.

However, it's not good anticav unit, and 4 is low value for full card investment in fortress.

Re: Intervention card for Japan

I think stadhouders are best of the bunch, but we should bear in mind that primaraly ports and sometimes japanese are currently two most viable consulate options. So it comes down to bestieros or yamaguchi, which are not particularly good age 3 units.

Re: Portuguese Discussion Thread

+100f could mean quicker and more consistent age up, so that they have a bit more time to settle in colonial, helping their very weak early colonial eco. Yeah, but that translates to one vill advantage, I don't think it will be enough. Anyway, ep team needs to seriously consider this change and tes...

At least ep team should update civ descriptions accordingly, so it says Ports have cheaper vills.

Re: Japanese Discussion Thread

Damn, so many bad ideas! How would you buff Japanese, in case you were to do so? Not easy task, especially considering that any buff in my eyes will risk to ruin balance. I mean, Japs are already fine in pretty much every department. 700w or 700g would be too much because Jap can send them twice. I...

Re: Portuguese Discussion Thread

In order to benefit from cassas reduced price you need to reach age 3 first. That's not gonna happen easily if vill price gets reverted.

Re: Japanese Discussion Thread

Anything that can potentially give Japan some boost to contain early pressure is sound idea. 250 export to Toshugu is reasonable. Would you keep way of the bow nerf?

Re: Russian Discussion Thread

Russia is perhaps Jap hardest MU after India (more than vs Aztecs). Then again, unlike vs Aztecs, I think aggressive builds that involve jap consulate and aim to punish a rush can actually work vs Russia. And if Russia doesnt rush I dont see them being at any advantage vs Japan. It is also possible...

Re: Russian Discussion Thread

I was analyzing cumulative effect throughout whole game. If you build 2 max 3 BH, thats max 10-15 pop space, which equals 1 or 1,5 house. That's nothing in terms of time and resource saving. I agree, 255f vills was actually an adequate buff. I would would continue buffing Russia's age 3 unit shipmen...

Re: Russian Discussion Thread

Then we are back to one and only 255f buff, I don't see other options.

In case Russia gets 255f vills back, China and especially Japan need to be buffed accordingly, because it will be even harder to hold rush from Russia, which is already a problem for mentioned civs...

Re: Japanese Discussion Thread

They're honestly bad ideas. In fact, if there were room for more nerfs those would probably be the immediate candidates. In particular, shrines are not easy to kill, I don't know where people get that impression. It is far harder to damage Japan through shrine hunting than just vill hunting to any ...

Re: Russian Discussion Thread

Russia struggles with pop space because batch system, so upping BH pop space sounds like a good idea. On the other hand, how many BH do we build in regular game, 2 max 3 right? If you consider it like that, its very small, almost unnoticable buff. Anyone considered buffing BH range damage slightly? ...
