Re: Can we restore surgeons to nilla glory?

Can surgeons rescued from treasures build field hospitals? And do they heal units while they're moving? EDIT: Just ran a quick test. Surgeons can build hospitals (200w) without the card. Hospitals can heal units while they're moving, and have a fairly decent range as well (seemed like 14 or 16 to me...

Re: Can we restore surgeons to nilla glory?

The best thing about nilla healing is that units can be healed while moving. As it stands a big problem with healers on TAD is that you need to idle your army to use them, which just isn't practical a lot of the time.

Re: market upgrades and eco cards affect sw ?

Market ups apply to all units tagged as villagers. SW have that tag, so they are indeed affected, as are rescued villagers.

Re: Buff tame animals

They might be better if their multiplier against treasure guardians was increased, or if their negative multiplier against vils was reduced. Also, they should be able to attack buildings like converted guardians can.

Re: French Comanche native Allience Build Order

Are you sure that "light infantry" is not referring to coyote runners, etc.? Remember that skirm/bow type units are classified as ranged infantry. This is a neat strat and again illustrates how underused natives are. There are some really good techs in the native tps - 12 bison from Cheyen...

Hey there, welcome to ESOC! If you're new to the game, France is typically what people recommend you start with. They are a very versatile civ, and can adapt to basically anything. Their villagers are also stronger and better than normal villagers, making them a bit more forgiving for people just le...

I think there has to be a middle ground somewhere that most can agree on. I think its important to realize that people are sensitive to issues regarding race but I also think I should be able to interact with people of other races without having to worry they might pull the race card on me. This is...

I think if you start with 8 people and let the 4 last people go to the next round, it's really easy to team up with people and it will basically become 4v4. It is rarely as coordinated and straightforward as that. Imbalanced "teams" are quite common. However, that's one of the things that...
