Re: brits against france

i wonder how the overpowerouga had lost to aizamk anyway a semiff 700w 5v 700g with a tp in transition would work. or you can try goodspeed's VC boom. With 700w 5v 700g you age up slightly later and will be behind for the entire game, eventually losing. Of course if the French player doesn't exploi...

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

China used to be relatively more reliant on that wood crate than other civs because they really wanted that second village. Right now, other civs are also more reliant on it because they gain a TP. There is no longer a discrepancy between how much China relies on the crate compared to other civs. T...

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

I'm doing market starts right now and they're not necessarily worse than the normal TP or 2 houses since you don't chop 100w and age at 4.20-4.30. It's a trade off anyway. And in this case it's just 1 out of the 5 possible spawns., which btw is bad for the other civ as well. I agree to think that th...

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

It is a bit worse yes. In other cases it is not worse, sometimes it is better. Also please note that gold can be used for market.

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

It is a buff and it is somewhat relevant. On a 100g start they can always market while other civs struggle doing that if they also don't get +100f. On 100w it would be like now but with extra 100f which is incredibly good. Aside from TP/village start at 4.30 or so, they could simply go market and ag...

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

By the way here's another possible change that I would like feedback on while we work on finalizing the list: Town center cost decrease to 400w. After the shock of reading this proposition, it's actually not stupid. It's true that we don't see oftenly people dropping another tc on the map. However ...

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

How is it 5/6 of spawns? 100w would be same as now. 100w 100f would be better. 100g would be worse. 100g 100f would be basically the same (they can buy wood at market and go market + village like now, plus 100f). 100f would be worse. It's more like 1/3 is the same, 1/2 is worse and 1/3 is better. An...

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

But they're not down 100f? Sigh. How hard is to understand that fixed 100w fully compensates 2 inferior random crates? Besides, does China suffer from the current starting crates? No. And last but not least. If you really think 100f is so important for China, then make them exactly like other civs ...

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

Ok 6 I guess I will try to explain the reasoning one more time even though the food crate change is not going to be in the patch. We may change crates in another way though so it's important for you and everyone else to understand why China's current crate situation is a big problem, and while ther...

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

China is of course slower aging than most civs. But is that a problem? Like on EP you almost always get treasures that make you age under 5 min everytime. With very good conditions it can be even 4.30. With just 1 village can even be 4.10. I mean, in the no 700g variation of the FF you don't even us...

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

It is not unpleasant because it's wrong. I'm right here and you can check it in the posts I made. And they are the farthest thing from arbitrary, unlike other arguments used in this topic. Regarding the 100 f thing, you completely ignore the fact that China always has to chop 100 wood to either get ...

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

Does it matter? I made a detailed post on actual starting crates and it seems everyone ignored it because it tell the truth, aka China doesn't need another random food crate.
Do you want to ignore it because I'm arrogant? Cool, let's ruin the game because of sympathy/dislike for others.

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

Judging from the conclusions you make it's not a nitpick. China has neutral or better crate spawn in most situations already. With the proposed change China will always have better or neutral spawn.

You mean Goodspeed VC strat maybe?!

Anyway, either that or classic huss/mus timing at 9 min. Don't have to be exactly when they age since you gain a lot from min 8 to 10 while they just one card. Gonna be hard tho vs cdbs.

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

About the China change: In the case the map spawn is 100w crates, then China basically has 300f 200w base crates and gets a wood crate for free. I feel like these crates are actually slightly bad for China, because some other civs get a pretty big bonus from 200w starts (think France, Japan, German...

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

I don't really think China's Colonial needs to or should be buffed. It's a good thing that it's weak, IMO; helps balance out their strength in Fortress. That German consulate change would give them a really solid Semi-FF I think, or even Semi-FI—since they'd likely be making Old Han—and I'm not sur...

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

Hmm, perhaps it's not phrased well. I mean if there is anything wrong with China is that its fortress is too good and colo too bad or it is the fattening nerf. The latter does nerf fortress just as much as it nerfs colonial. And in any case it wasn't a proper nerf since it's one of China side bonus....

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

Which point did I discard. That it concerns discrimination against japs. The civilization would not be any stronger after the change, than it was before, except for the cases where it was wrongfully weaker before. It doesn't actually affect balance in any sense that we think of it – with this one e...
