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? ...

China's colonial is just bad. No musk unit, weak hand cav. Only redeeming factor are chu ko nu's, which are better than xbow's, thats all.

What cost reduction? I see people mentioning this, but it isnt in patch notes, and the price is the same as always o.O


From 80f, 80c to 75f, 75c.

Its just a slight buff. Sowars are pretty weak without cards, they are not worth more than 150 resources anyway.

Re: Russian Discussion Thread

86.6f per villager is the sweet spot and 85f is not? Anything less than 5f per villager is clearly not relevant. Change starts to be significant from 5f and on. 255f is basically the minimum perceptible buff . Many claim it's too much, while 260 is in your opinion insignificant? In Ports case it wa...

Re: Russian Discussion Thread

I feel like they are stylistically disadvantaged. Their strength lies in long colonial games which almost never happen, they can get early map control but it is not so strong because of the amount of starting res in base which means your opponent can age and push out with a tech advantage, all in r...

Ok, then what's stopping map makers to finally fix hunt/mine spawns? Seems to me that it's everyone agreeing on precisely what is the correct amount of randomness. I personally am a fan of having a variety of maps with different amounts of randomness. If you're dissatisfied with the maps that we ha...

Garja is not only map maker, there are others, maybe we should use their maps for tourneys, which are more consistent in terms of hunt/mine spawns.

Re: SKAANDALL!!!!!!

As i recall map creators can't fix bad hunt spawns. Problem is in game engine itself. Atm, the only way to address this issue is to set all hunts to fixed status on all maps, and we don't want that, don't we. Everyone likes little randomness here and there....... There's really nothing true about t...

Re: Biased mapchecking?

Isn't the underlying problem simply that most of the maps in the pool arent made for competitive tournaments? The standards of most of the people here as to when a map is fair and the average map spawn just means you're going to have to be rehosting a lot. Sometimes people look at the 5th or 6th hu...
