Seems like their changes are at least going in the right direction. Crossbows and spearmen did feel kinda weak against cav, zhuge nu were useless, hulks were obviously OP, etc.
But sadly no springald nerf it looks like
I hope there's also hitbox fixes in there, but they don't mention it.

never played china i thought they were cheaper and stronger, but i guess just stronger?
In the beta hitboxes got some criticism, probably because they were generally a lot tighter than players are used to (I can imagine this being quite the change for aoe2 players, and in my tests the hitboxes were slightly tighter than they are in aoe3). I had hoped that they would just slightly increase the margin of error with these hitboxes (so that you can be a few pixels off), but instead it seems like they completely abandoned the system they had in place and regressed to these super outdated hitboxes.
yea, idk if he had a different beta or what but every version of the game hitboxes have been terribleiNcog wrote:really? hitboxes have always felt like crap to me regardless of what version of the game I was playing

Yes, really. I spent a lot of time testing this. It probably felt like crap because you need to be 'unreasonably' precise. There were still some buggy hitboxes, but in general they functioned well.
And it's not just that you have to be unreasonably precise, it's also inconsistent due bugs.
