Re: Ottomans Discussion Thread

Give abus guns area damage with their imperial upgrade to reduce overkill. Tests with skull knights show that area effect of 3 is not too strong.

Re: French Discussion Thread

In games like AoE3, an economy is not just the amount of resources acquired over time, but also the quality and cost effectiveness of what you want to do with the resources: producing units. The French economy profits from two things at the same time: a good resource generation as well as a large va .....

Re: Are the free Otto vills actually a bonus?

My interpretation:
They are a strong bonus at the beginning, but their usefulness declines until it becomes negative, roughly from ~8min on.

If you can manage to make use of the bonus within the 8min timeframe (rush/ff/whatever), then you have the edge in the game. Otherwise, Ottomans quickly become a .....

There is a German proverb saying: "A proper Blitzkrieg is still only half of a pike-boom."

Re: What kind of civilizations would you like to see on this game?

I would also be ok with an Austrian civ which has a mechanic comparable to the consulate, e.g. "Imperial Allies" or "Habsburg Realm", granting units with Polish/Hungarian/Czech/Spanish/Italian/Flemish context.

edit: the more I think about it, the more I actually love it.

Re: What kind of civilizations would you like to see on this game?

Given the timeframe, Sweden/Hungary/Poland are really missing as well. These countries were absolute units and at least Sweden also had colonies (although that argument seems irrelevant when including Ottomans anyway).
