Re: ESOC Patch suggestions, comments and discussion

Seminole TP upgrade (+25% archer attack) should be nerfed a bit.

Re: Scaling mercenaries

I think having them scale would be fun, but I would not make their shadow guard and imp techs full strength (maybe 15/20% and 25/30% instead of normal 30% and 50%).

If I were playing in the tournament, I would much rather play on Gran Chaco or Bengal, even parallel rivers. Even as a viewer I don't like Thar desert that much either, as there's just not much going on.

Re: Eco Theory as Russia

What about 300w? Yes wood trickle gives equivalent vill seconds to 300w after 4 minutes and continues to pay, but wouldn't an early TP and earlier steel traps be more valuable?

Also, Team Furrier is only 10% to hunting and 15% to berries, but I think it is still pretty good in 3v3, especially with a .....

Re: How to play vs Sioux as France

I've seen 10/15 musk semi-ff going straight into cannons do quite well against sioux. Something like 4v/700c/2 falc (10 musks) or 4v/700w/700c/2 falc if you start TP (15 musks). You can either get vet musks right when you age or train 1/2/3 more batches of musks then switch to skirm/dragoon/cuir.

Re: Grenadier rush/musk-gren rush

Is there really any advantage to going musk/gren over just pure musk? Musks and grens have the same ranged HP per 100 resources/population space (150), and while grens do have over twice the siege per 100/resources and deal area and siege damage, they are countered hard by cavalry and require their .....

Re: EP Ladder Model

But there is also the component of PR that lets new players, as well as players who have been inactive for awhile and decayed, level up super quickly (I believe I reached pr 15 on my main account in 2 games) which I think is very important.

I think changing the main part of the ui from having 2 icon bars (one large and one small per player), to having 3 small icon bars would be a good change, as it would allow for you view shipments, units in queue, and techs researched (the most important information IMO) at the same time.

Re: 2v2 India and Japan

In my experience, there are tons of options for this civ combo. The classic option would be to place the agra either in base or between both bases and not too far forward, and try to boom and hold. Japan should not wait until the 600w comes to place a rax, instead saving 200w and placing it the mome .....

Re: EP 6.0.x Beta [2019-02-02]

I think in an ideal world, fast age up would just be removed, and all fortress age ups would take 100 seconds (and maybe cost slightly less). However, that will never happen as it would have way too much of a change on balance. I personally would like to see the beta test out making fast age between .....
