Re: Beta Ottomans Discussion

My view : 5 spahis card and 3 spahis age up are not bad. Other spahis shipments are bad but that's not the unit itself.

I don't think buffing spahis and bombards is a good idea because even though they aren't usually that strong, they are already very good in some situations.

At least not on Indonesia, cuz if you are using water you want rather fishing boats up and if you aren't, you want to be aggressive.
