They have standard range of 6 for siege damage. There is not tech that I know of that allows them to range siege damage.

Re: Petition to buff grenadier unit attack

Kaiserklein comes in clutch? https://eso-community.net/viewtopic.php?t=7577#top I think its the total damage that can be split into the several units of the area. For example if you have 10 attack and 30 cap, you will deal 10 to the unit you aim and then up to 20 other damage split into other units ...

Re: Public Update Preview - March Update

Cant believe they haven't undone the Dutch exp bank nerf! I am very happy about the japanese shrine hp nerf seems like a very reasonable change. I think the dev's need to look into the Brit v dutch matchup, as it seems pretty much unplayable now for the dutch player.

some units like yabusame(.28) and yojimbo(0.25) fire so fast their projectiles launch before their animation even begins and is completely desynced. you can really feel how much love the devs put into Japanese units in general when you look into the files.

Re: Buffing less used units.

I would only buff those underused units if it is needed to balance a specific MU/game situation. For example dopps could have their colonial stats buffed slightly in exchange for a nerf on their vet upgrade as part of a general policy to make German colonial play more viable. But buffing dopps in t...

Grenade launcher could easily be a tech research at arsenal rather than an entire shipment that essentially does nothing and has to compete with 2 Falcons for a shipment shot.

Good point I should rephrase that. Ship colonial militia blindly unless you scout no aggression. If you didn’t scout, well then CM is blanket protection because you are not building units.

The way I like to play this match up is to scout his second shipment with the envoy. (The first shipment is always 3 sw and you need to hide from the 2 uhlan) if it is 700c then German is going naked ff. If it is 700w you know you need to scout for unit production buildings. 700w could also mean sta...
