I would like Ottomans to have a special Revolution politician giving TCs a free trickle of Spahis every 45 seconds.

Even Spain can have its uses in long or treaty games, I guess. The extra 1500 XP can be quite nice.

Well the UK tried to get into the EU for some years and were blocked by Charles de Gaulle. They had a reason for their desire to become part of the european market. Now of course you can bash the European Union for not significantly improving the standard of living in the UK over the last 40 years. .....

Re: Comanche Thread

I don't see the Comanche in a useful raiding position. It does 13dmg multiplied by 0.5 against villagers -> 6.5 dmg per shot compared to a solid 24dmg a usual hussar would do. I don't think that you can raid french villagers with Comanche, since they would just destroy you. A french villager is a .....

Re: Why are Arsonists considered bad?

They are just far inferior to grenadiers. A comparison:
Unit: Vet. Grenadier / Arsonist
Cost: 120f 60c / 300 c
HP: 240 / 250
RR: .5 / .5
Dmg: 19.2 / 25
Siege: 64 / 140

Already here, we can see that the Arsonist is worse due to costing twice as much as a simple Grenadier. But in my opinion the biggest flaw .....

Re: Comanche Thread

It also does not play a role guys. The war wagon is the most unique ranged cavalry unit in the game. Comparing the horse archer to it is completely arbitrary and does not make sense. No person with half a brain would produce 100% war wagons to counter horse archer and vice versa.

Re: "3 Settler Wagons" Shipment Discussion

A Prussian Germany not having any standard line infantry (not even by church card) is a weird choice as well. Arguably, the Needle Gunner should rather have been an elite musket unit, while the Jäger should have been the standard German skirmisher.
