Re: Suggestion: Possible balance tweaks for Indian cavalry.

Did... This game received a update I wasnt made aware of? I was under the impression the main complaint about the Mahout Lancer was preciselly that it was far too expensive for its stats.

Suggestion: Possible balance tweaks for Indian cavalry.

I heard a lot of players complain about Indian cavalry being weak, so... I thought of a few tweaks that could possibly be done. I know that it would be impossible to know, on pratice, how it would affect the balance without playtesting it, but... Just let me know what you think:

Re: Top 5 best heavy cavalry civilizations.

I still just dont think it is fair to compare a heavy infantry unit to a light cavalry unit, when both are more suitable to different roles and circunstances. And, on the case of the Yojimbo, the comparisson becomes even weirder because the Yojimbo-Itself-Plays very differently from other light cava .....

Re: Top 5 best heavy cavalry civilizations.

... Okay, seriously, I just dont get it. Am I the only one who likes to have the option to train a anti-cavalry unit that is fast enough to chase cavalry down or to run away if things get dim, and that, unlike the Yabusame, can actually hit decently hard?

Warrior culture could have been incredibly OP if it has been a Discovery Age or even Colonial Age shipment. But, as it is a Industrial Age shipment, it is rather useless in my eyes.
