@aqwer totally the opposite. Xp trickle would be a buff for otto because they rely on shipments more than most other civs, and can even afford 200w for a nat post with starting crates. Plus otto is one of the fastest civs so they can nat rush just fine. I actually think nat rush would become very hard to beat for a lot of civs on no tp vs otto now, probably too hard.

I think it will not be that good because ottoman eco is weak and most native units are weak or bad as compared to their cost. But I would love to see that working like you said.

I mean, otto is probably the best civ for a nat rush currently, so I don't know what you mean. Otto eco isn't bad early on, since they don't pay for vils. And with the xp from the mosque and the nat post they would have the equivalent of more than a tp...

Ofc you would do it only on maps with good nats like incas or nootkas

Mostly because they age fast. But ye, in general because of the nat card. Anyway this nat thing isnt a nerf to otto.

Another idea to make Otto more competitive on non tp maps:
Just let the mosque xp trickle get doubled with every age up till age IV. We can start from 0.5 xp/sec.

Another idea to make Otto more competitive on non tp maps:
Stop making non TP maps. Taking away such a core strategic option in the game will never lead to better balance. It's like making maps where you can't build a barracks, or where you can't go to age 3. It just doesn't make sense and is always going to screw over some civs.

I wouldn't say that bcz
1- it adds diversity in map pool
2- it is good for some civs as tp maps are good for some civs

I just want that every civ should have fighting chance.

Our fine developers Eaglemut and Kevsoft have managed to resolve a number of issues more, resulting in – among other things – the ability to implement an xp-trickle for native TPs (and through it a more optimal Germans nerf, too), and an improvement to the stun ability of monks (which will allow the Indian Heroes to properly use the ability on moving targets).

Please be advised that the beta will see at least one more update, before release. This update was conceived to resolve certain issues that became apparent after the release of the previous one.

A quick suggestion to the wall in the current patch, as the bastion is still sort of op in fortress.
Wall in age I and II, keeps as the same (1.5k hp, 1 LOS);
Wall in age III, auto-upgrade to the wall in RE (3k hp and 4 LOS), construction time increases 50% (the same time as the one after bastion in the current patch), bastion tech disabled;
Wall in age IV, able to tech bastion (cost also depends on the amount of wall built when upgrading the tech), cost of wall increases to 10w, construction time remains the same in the current patch (+50% compares to RE).
For example, if u built 10 wall segments when upgrading bastion, the cost will be 400w600c + 5*10w

Hope this can provide a solution to turtle behind the wall, and makes walls balanced in fortress as well

If you mean fixed as in disabled by anti-cheat or something, no, they are allowed.
If you mean fixed as in added to the game interface or something, also no.

I really like the walls suggestion by Zeke, but with a changing bastion price to something like 600c + x*y w so that it is cheaper when you don't have any walls. maybe it would also make sense to make walls even more expensive post-bastion, your eco can probably afford this anyway in IV

So, and hear me out here, you could just balance for TP maps? Instead of trying to have half the civs good on non tp maps and half good on tp maps, because that makes little sense. Just make the game fun on the maps where there are the most options?

Its obvious that if we want the most balence game, we need to add tp on all maps, some with 3/4 tp and some with only 2. But i am not sure it's on the table.

That's pretty much what the ep policy has been

It makes absolute sense to have no TP maps too, since TP is just a part of the game and not the whole game. Dynamics on no TP maps are different and they're often even more interesting.

Balance isn't set in stone. What you and Riot refers to is just meta. I mean Russia isn't even that dominant on no TP maps and India is just India really.
TP only is a shit argument anyway. By the same logic all maps should have some water because otherwise some civs can't fully use their advantages.

We're always balancing on standard maps first, since it's the majority of maps and, well, it's our standards. Meanwhile trying to tweak some stuff on the less standard maps to make them a bit more balanced without breaking the standard maps balance. Can't really do much more than that.
While it's not possible to balance on all kinds of maps, removing all the non standard maps (no tp, 5 tp, low res...) would just be boring as fuck. Might as well play on arkansas every game then.

But yeah, hopefully we find ways to make more civs viable on these non standard maps. That's what zoi is trying to do with his native post xp trickle change (though I dislike the change itself) for no tp maps, and that's what happened with 70w boats for water maps. We need to keep going in that direction.

The meta argument is a joke, german have a bonus based on xp, russian not, so is cleary not a meta probleme if tp map is better for german rather than russia.
And the same logic can be applied for water, the fact is not so many peaple abuse of that, but if some civ are broken on water and bad on land, that can be a probleme.

So or the tp and water are designed to be viable but not necessary for any civ, or the game will continue to be unbalanced.

No civ is broken on TP and bad on non TP and same for water/no water.
