Marathan Catamarans should get their attack damage type changed to siege, like every other warship.

For what it's worth, I reached out to AoE3's lead designer and he responded pretty quickly. Their hands are tied when it comes to actually patching the game (funding, internal politics, etc), but many of the team were passionate creating the game, and still remain passionate. Anyway, we had a nice back and forth throughout the day on Twitter. I'll post the full conversation tomorrow on the other thread. :)

To be fair, I was referring to a stereotypical point of view based on general MS staff activity in terms of community management in the form of for instance banning cheaters on ESO or generally staying in touch with the players. Sorry for that, your words certainly bring some hope and relief. :)

They are identical to Canoes — 16 range attack and 40 siege attack. Makes sense if you ask me.

No, whenever catamarans attack, they use their ranged attack. Canoes however use their siege attack. Hence canoes are good and catamarans are totally crap.

That's not entirely true. Canoes deal siege damage to building, obviously, and other warships, whereas land units they attack with their normal range damage. Catamarans, on the other hand, do the same with the exception of a normal ranged attack against other vessels. In a way then they are not totally crap, although in some sea action they fall back quickly, unless mirrored, which is almost always the case, as they don't see that much usage apart from some early brawls on Indonesia/Honshu. :ship: :ship: :ship:

Well im talking about sea combat, the only thing theyre meant for and good at cuz they lack range to do what frigs do. And also the only reason caravels etc are god at defending vs land is their high rr and attack of siege dmg type. Canoes are good at fighting water cuz they are cheap but with high dmg. Catamarans cost the same and have same stats but they dont do siege dmg in battle unless actually sieging. So this just makes them totally useless. There is literally no point to make them in a game thats not already over.

I am not necessarily sure if this constitutes a bug or not, but some of the TAD treasure guardians (I think lions, panthers and tigers) can bug out and have a super fast attack rate. If you attack one, then walk towards the treasure, they attack super quickly and can deal tons of damage. But, it can totally vary, making it hard to take calculated risks when taking treasures.

Their attack seems to instantly recharge without doing the full animation while they're moving (always, not just sometimes). What you need to do is either stand still, or keep them snared so they will need to catch up in between attacks.

Yeah I do try to do that, but since the instant recharge doesnt happen with any of the vanilla treaure guardians, I thought it would be worth mentioning, as it does seem to be a bug to me.

No idea whether it's intended or not. Personally I'd keep it, I always find it funny when this happens and some explorer just gets absolutely rekt.

I've just checked it and it's indeed the case — with an EP Native Scout I managed in a standing position I managed to get a tiger down to 175 HP, whereas when I tried to kite (remember — no snare) I only managed to hit him like 3/4 times before dying. However, when you apply this to snare-able units, like explorers, that's not the case. My explorer survived with 210 HP in a standing fight and more than 235 HP when kiting.
