Re: European politics

The leftists and rightists in Germany are putting nationalism and socialism back together. And it's actually starting at the fringes of the center-right and center-left parties already. E.g. Saxony is governed by a CDU prime minister who already talks about rebuilding NordStream 1 for future busines...

Re: UPDATE 15 58326

4 lansquenets at the cost of 250c isn't that cheap? Basically you are paying 1 lansquenet and 1/4 of its cost. The right cost would be 400 i.e. 200c each lansquenet and +2 bonus for the civilization bonus I just learned that there are alternative spellings for Landsknecht in other languages :shock:...

Re: European politics

There is this fallacy in the left where people start with the idea that the things people base their identities on are generally a bit arbitrary and that it doesn't really matter for an individual which flag is flying on a building. People should just drop their old identity, embrace the new, e.g. R...

Re: Native civ designs is a failure now

The French "u" is not identical to its "ou". It's difficult to explain the difference in English. For German, it is that u = ü and ou = u. Since English doesn't know the former sound, I could imagine that the two sounds look identical to English native speakers. I'm like 99% sure...

Re: March PUP Notes

removing something like 3 vills from a civ is absolutely massive, if you wanna do that you should give compensation by making manors 130w (cheaper) for example and it will still be a nerf overall. double nerfing like this is not good and hurt brits too much, if they are too strong right now (idk ou...

Gatling is just absurdly overpowered, so there's no reason to switch to sharpshooters as long as the opponent doesnt do 100% culv.

Re: Team Game Balance Discussion

I don't understand how rushes are somehow too powerful if you can survive it by adapting, e.g. by sending Irish brigadiers. Playing a greedy playstyle doing a fast imperial should be a fragile thing to do. Semi-FFs are far less fragile to rushes as you do some units anyway. There's an abundance of s...

Landwehr, Chevauleger and Prince-Electors

What's the point of the cards activating these for Germany? I'm trying to understand whether there is any situation, where sending the cards to activate Landwehr, Chevauleger or the Prince-Elector stuff is worth it or at least a fun thing to do. Landwehr seems to be just worse than simple skirmisher...

Re: Trample mode

Receives 50% of the damage it deals back (Of all units damaged). Also affected by multipliers (A cavalry unit that has 30 trample damage and 2X vs infantry receives 30 damage when attacking 1 skirmisher). Okay, that's just plain stupid. I also like the tests: Hussars vs skirmishers (Open field, ene...

Re: Trample mode

Do people use trample mode? I find it tempting sometimes if you find a huge group of villagers around a mine for example but afterwards i always wonder if the damage done to my cav was worth it. I just wonder whether it can be worth it, e.g. for Hakkapelits (who have both relatively high hp and mel...

Trample mode

Does anyone have more detailed information on how trample mode works for cavalry units? The wiki is quite vague about its functionality with: Available to hand cavalry, the trample mode grants it an Area of Effect, at the expense of slower speed, lower attack and increased damage taken. It raises fu...

Re: Public Update Preview - January Update

Hakkapelit:
Added melee damage multiplier of 0.6x against Infantry and Villagers.
March of the Hakkapelits: Hakkapelit speed increase reduced to 0.15 (down from 0.25).

These two are unnecessary, but won't make Hakkas unbearably weak.
