Re: Why do people complain about maps with many natural obstables?

Personally, I think this game would be pretty boring if every game consisted of a fight in an open space with no obstacles. AoE3 already has a minimal tactical component compared to other RTS games (think of the elevation multipliers in AoE2 or the river crossing penalty in RoN); there's no need to .....

Re: Spahis deserve better

Doesn't the urumi card get more expensive each time you send it? If so, it might make sense to do the same to spahi. You could have 6 spahi for 1200 food and increase the cost by 200 every time the card gets sent. It starts out as an amazing bargain but your returns rapidly diminish. It also prevent .....

7 spahi are way stronger than 9 urumi though

If you want to organize a tournament like this, ESOC will almost certainly give you the platform to do so. People have run a few private tournaments from this forum, most recently Moltke's Summer 2018 Risk tourney.

Buff spies?

They are a really cool unit, and I was wondering what people think of giving them a buff. The devs obviously intended for them to have a bigger role in the game, as evidenced by the fact that all the Euro civs have access to the Agents/Assassins upgrade card. I have heard that an Otto age 1 spy rush .....

This is an interesting change but realistically wouldn't have an impact on many games. It seems like there are more fundamental reasons that Spain is weak, and those are ones that should/will be addressed.

Re: Top 5 best heavy cavalry civilizations.

I compared Yojimbo to Ashi because they fulfill the same purpose - countering cav. It doesn't make sense to compare them to Yabusame because Yabusame are designed to counter artillery, not cavalry (though their multiplier against cav is an added perk).

Ashi are strong, available without a card, and h .....
