Re: Japanese Discussion Thread

It seems like it would help balance across all game modes. Overall feedback consistently indicates that Japanese scaling remains overwhelming.

Re: Japanese Discussion Thread

What about replacing the "Paper Cartridge" improvement (+15% gunpowder infantry attack) with the "Trunion" one (+15% artillery speed), at the Golden Pavilion?

I think a better way to make uhlans more viable, if that's really necessary, is to reduce cost. Better than reverting the HP change, that is.

But is it necessary? Are people not training uhlans anymore? Out of the resources Germans spend on military, what % is spent on uhlans? If peop .....

Re: EP Uhlan Hitpoints Poll

Although I am the one who suggested the exact question asked in this poll, it is an interesting one for me to answer. From scratch, I personally would have preferred another option than the Uhlan hitpoints nerf. Now, while I still would, there are some things to be said in its defence. The definitiv .....

I already have.

What if we don't nerf British Allies to +0% hitpoints, like Cuckoo says, and instead nerf it to -10% hitpoints? That should do the trick!

Re: Does EP German sacrifice too much for their free uhlans?

As far as balance is concerned, the slight Uhlan hitpoints nerf seems good (outside of team games, possibly). I've said many times that I agree that the Uhlan hitpoints nerf isn't ideal, though; if only for its lack of popularity. The problem is that the current situation is relatively good, and tha .....

Re: Other RTS - does anyone else have these?

I'm a fan of DoW2. I was top 20 when the game was peaking. I still probably am, since that's just about how many players there are these days. Would love to play some games if I ever feel like playing anything.

At this point it seems unlikely to happen. Like I said, it's both risky and arguably unwarranted. Ultimately it'll come down to feedback.
