Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Honestly there is no evidence that 50% is not enough to be viable. On paper it is still very strong. The whole logic of the change was to nerf it enough to not be a win button but rather an alternative to territorial army. It may very well be overnerfed but 75% may very well be too strong. And since...

Re: Consulate gather rate

In practical terms what matters is speeding up tue build, since that's India problem atm. The basic build with 600w, 300exp etc. is already greedier than what most civs can do. But even in terms of pure greed GFA only slightly improves the basic India build since you need to chop 200w for cons in tr...

Re: Consulate gather rate

Unfortunately it is big deal because India eco progression is slow and time is a key factor. It still takes some seconds to ally and to research the techs a d more impirtantly to switch cons (which doesn't change). That's why I usually go for either fre or otto cons but not both (assuming you want t...

Re: Consulate gather rate

The peoblem is that you need to wait for 300export anyway or you lose 75export.

Re: Favourite Energy Drinks

Energy drinks are pretty much the drink equivalent of junk food except they do serve the purpose of more focus/concentration.
Hard to say which one is better since they all taste like shit after a while. They are garbage anyway, coffee is much better.

Who cares about the gold lost when you age up in time, controlling the game, with still huge eco and in absolute safety.

Re: Consulate gather rate

Even if it was, it is just not enough of a boost to build a strat around it. If you could decide to boost it by 50% or so (still with inefficicency) I'm pretty sure one could find some use for it.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

If china does stagecoach-semi then they are giving up one of the most important things they have in that matchup: speed. Dutch can age around 7:30 with a 5 bank ff and china can do the same, but dutch will probably have to send 1k wood to lay down the rest of their military buildings and houses, bu...

China semi with stagecoach. They can straight ff if you also naked ff, that's why you should make semi.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Why would you go stagecoach vs Dutch when you need to be agressive against them and punish 1000 w? Why do you want to be agressive? The longer the game goes the better is for China. Most of Euro civs, including Dutch, cant deal with China units after both upgrades (especially the cav one). Stagecoa...

Re: Consulate gather rate

So you lose X resources to get your consulate batch of muskets a little faster. Then after that you have to wait for another 400 resources from the consulate. Until that time the X resources you have given up are for nothing t1 = faster time for batch t2 = normal time for batch t3 = faster next bat...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

but china can just get stagecoach and deny 5 huss with pikes. china can easily do 700w 9 pike 700c vs a 5 huss semi and china should be up faster or same time as dutch. Yep China should in fact do some sort of semi imo. Standard eco FF is ok but marginally inferior to current Dutch with proper buil...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

I think 5 banks no units is much better, Ive done plenty of testing. Sometimes 5 hussars do a shitload of damage, but honestly if china just makes some disciples with his monk he shouldn't be losing vills at all and he really shouldn't be idled much, plus the idle time he will have is a TC trading ...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Huss semi is always with bank wagon. 700w is for more greed which is pointless since 5 banks+market ups is already like the most greedy semi you can do out of euro civs. Cant' get anything done with huss is bs. Just the fact that I run around your base and you have to keep going in and out with vill...

Re: 5 Uhlan shipment age 2 bad?

5 ulhans is 3+2 so compared to other Germans cards it is bad. However it's not as bad as people think as it is still a 5 ulhan swing. Also forward tower with 5+5 ulhans is kinda nasty cheese.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

Your first shipment in age 3 is too slow if you also make 5 huss, imo. If you see dutch doing huss semi ff China should consider even skipping the porcelain tower and going for academy instead. Your first shipment in age3 is rady when you age. I'm ofc assuming arq age up when I say fb. It simply do...

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

5 huss are key to keep china in base plus you are going to make huss in fortress plus you can still raid and force mm or drive attention anyway.
Point is 5 huss semi is same speed as 5 bank naked because you're going to make huss and skirm anyway and can make them in transition too.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

It was last patch with 300f 350w banks. On manchuria. Not very different from this patch. Anyway I'm up to try that again. I've been doing the same thing since forever even on RE patch.

Re: ESOC Patch balance poll #5

dutch 5 bank semi is strictly superior to dutch 5 bank naked and it does beat any china ff. You need to semi as China with stagecoach. China units eventually become better but early on you get outmassed by Dutch nah it doesnt. im sure my prodigy hudze the big boy will show u when i tell him what to...
