before i start i want to tell something about me.
Probably nobody of you guys know me, i startet the game back in 2006 and grinded it till 2010 and peaked rank 34.
Now after years and years i totally forgot about age 3 and found my lovely game back in steam and bought it.
I did my HC's, watched a lot of replays and done a ton of games against bots, did my hotkeys and tried to get used to it and etc...
Now i wanted to perfectionize my age up and farming with my villagers to calculate the gathering rate and making some strategics.
I began with france and their coreur gathering rate.
After trying out different things i recognized the numbers are not the same everytime. Its kinda normal when numbers are more or less then 3-4 of gathering.
But i had something different. I aged up and found something out.
A gathering difference from 45 gold to 60 gold in a minute!
I was pretty confused and thought it was a bug. Tried everything out, sometimes i gathered on mills double as fast in age 2, sometimes in age 3, more often in age 4.
(Timestamps in comments Gold & Mill)
Sometimes i gathered berrys with a double gather rate than normal in age 2.
I dont know , im sitting on these things now over 8 hours and its pretty crazy how different these gathering rates without any updates or shipments are.
Tried it in szenario and in a online game against a bot.
This Video is an 1 hour video of all the rates where i wrote down everything in Excel.
(if the video is not online its still uploading so just be patient)
In this game especially u gather more in Age 2 but not in others, im done for today and will do more tryouts the next days if other games get other ages where the gather rate is higher.
Maybe u guys are interested too in this and want to tryout too.
The Videos are pretty shitty and my mic too, never doin videos so be prepared
(Btw the gathering rate was also fucked up with normal villagers, just dont have them on record)
Thanks for you Attention guys
