Re: 3 Vil Shipment harms Strategy diversity

How about we just create an entirely new game That would be too much effort imo. The best thing to do in my opinion would be to create something like a "reduced version" of AOE3 DE. Reduce complexity and several things that break the game and are not necessary for haveing a good and balan...

Re: 3 Vil Shipment harms Strategy diversity

solution to what, exactly? every deck in the game sending the same first card As far as i understood so far, you think the game (AOE3) is too good and you want to solve that problem (aka make it worse). And the solution shall be to make more age I shipments equally strong to make them viable for sh...

Re: 3 Vil Shipment harms Strategy diversity

A strategy game doesnt nessecarly get better if you make it more complex. In this case (giving civs too many first shipment options equally strong) imo it obviously would turn into a desaster. Cant call it a strategy anymore if you randomly pick one of your first-shipment-options based on guessing w...

Re: Hausa in 2022 1600+ recorded games

Been playing Hausa for a while. I think its a both african civs are the D grade, probably needs buff. Briefly compare 3 Lifidi Knights (Age II) with 2 Cuirassiers (Age III) (both cost about the same and same popspace): 3 Lifidi Knights: Cost: 270 F, 330 G. Total: 600 res, about 50 percent of which ...

Re: Public Update Preview - February Update

Honestly the only difficulty that I found out playing Spain is that they use a lot of different types of units and sometimes there are a lot of control groups that you might have to deal with it. For example, if I age up with 8 xbow, I don't want to mix them with skirmishers because of the differen...

Re: Public Update Preview - February Update

Well it would slow it down a little bit. You have to consider how gathering times stack, meaning every single of those manors will add delay compared to now. We already had this change over the course of EP balance, and it did a good job iirc. The manors build as fast as they do now. It just means ...

Interestingly, this means that (for generic civ) you can make the linear approximation that the k-th shipment costs k*100 Xp, for k = 5, ..., 9

shimpent no, approx cost:
5, 500
6, 600
7, 700
8, 800

Re: Units Can Turn Into Gates

I still dont understand why they decided to add two new civs into the game instead of focussing on first getting the things right which already existed in the game. Now the developers again complicated things. People just never seem to understand that it is better to have simple systems in which eve...

Re: Bottomans need 6 janis shipment

Janissaries nerfed in hp, now cost 90f 25c. 5 Shipping Janis I see it quite devalued (575 resources), I think it should be raised to 6 (690 resources). Maybe it should be changed to "Ship 5 Old Janissaries", which have the former amount of hp. I dont think that it is good to increase the ...

That sounds like you have to use their speed if you want to use their potential.

Re: Cassador does not shadowtech

They cost more because they have more speed than normal skirmishers. Therefore, if you divide stats by cost, you get worse values than for normal skirmishers (because the speed is not included in that calculation). -> Cassador is viable as normal skirmishers are.

Did the aztec wall dance get nerfed on ep? It's so fucking dumb Walls are too cheap. You need like 1000 res worth of units hammering on it for like 1 minute to get a piece of wall down which costs 5 wood. If your opponent can kill one of your units during this process you got a deficit. So it is be...

Re: russia is so one dimensional is it not

The problem is if you age up at a decent time you cant really afford unit ups and to make units Depends, it's close. You have to play defensively in early age III vs the other semi FF civs but since Russia has 2 falcs there is that 1-2 minute window where things are just slow and you have time to c...
