Please stop with these aoe2 maps, it was cool as long as I was playing them there.

They seriously took off 5 bills for Aztecs ? Like the civ was too much of an economic powerhouse ?
ESOC : came for the game, stayed for the drama.

Can someone tell me if
1) Barbary revolt is fixed
2) marines are fixed
If I were a petal
And plucked, or moth, plucked
From flowers or pollen froth
To wither on a young child’s
Display. Fetch
Me a ribbon, they, all dead
Things scream.

Their next update is during Spring. Seems like the update frequency has lowered a bit.

Seems hard to believe that an update this big won't require any rebalancing afterwards. Surely something in here will be broken and require an update before Spring.

Some new revos & "thorough makeovers" of legacy civs sums up the patch.

Noticed one typo or inaccuracy, the new german card Prince-Electors is said to be available in age 1 but in deck builder it shows as an age 2 card.

Barbary revolt is nerfed a little, but Otto had a rework so not sure how viable that revolt still is after the update.
Marines now have give 14 XP when killed, FI is patched.

Anyway, USA seems nerfed across the board (better starting crates though, so might have better pacing), might be even weaker now, still little options how to play this civ IMO.

I see many useful changes. Things like Rockets doing 1.5x dmg vs infantry or Thin Red Line no longer nerfing infantry speed by -25% (now -10%). I also note that many things that I have always felt slightly overpowered are nerfed a bit (e.g. whale oil or boyars).




Okay, what is this?
[NEW] Azekura (II): Increases Shrine hitpoints by +15%
And this?
[NEW] 2x Nanban Trade (III, 350w 350c): Grants 500 Export

Azekura might be the worst building upgrade card in the game. And Nanban Trade costs 1700 res for 500 Export?
Whatever is written above: this is no financial advice.

The explorers seems bugged at the moment. The treasure guardian crackshot inmovilizes the explorer in what I assume is a exhausting posture for my lad out there. Anyone else with this issue?

Ok they are destroying the game.
3/4 of changes are bad. 1/4 are not relevant.

Can't find Royal Embassy in the Hotkeys menu, devs are confirmed clickers?? :hehe: Setting up hotkeys on DE is overall a massive pain cause nothing's alphabetically ordered, plus so many new or renamed units/buildings to remember.

India seems broken to me, they have a new card for all elephants, in extended teams it has a nice impact but the two most broken things are karni mata with an improved harvest rate of 5% and it is with an aura increased by 10 and the new card for the sepoys that in addition to the cost reduction of 10% train 85% faster, add school of fencing and come out instantly, to say that in team games it is quite broken as a thing. In 1v1 it will have little impact.

The funny thing is to see your wonders and tower center become a ronin :hehe: :uglylol:

I love how they took one of the most broken features in the game, revolts, and added it to civs that didn't revolt. See the 47 ronin cards is like seeing a relative slowly getting dementia and being unable to do anything about it. this game is a meme

I just hope DE is not going to implement all of the EP changes. Right now it is a big clusterfuck.

i take it that when they mean major update its not small aspects, but something similar in scale to what we see now, they already committed to hotfixes so who knows, might include a tweak or 2.
