Hi everyone! first of all, I want to kudos the devs, since the last patch seems to have
extinguish the fire (most of it).
So, now let’s talk about the 5 civs noone is using in competitive. and how to make them popular. We all can name them, since we all know which they’re: Rise of rajas civs + Turks. Yeah, I know, koreans are not that popular neither, but they got a recent buff, and a pretty decent one, so I guess they’re fine by the moment.
Quite simple one. Give them elite skirmishers. They have no counter to arbalest. none. 0. Without elite skirmishers or onager, it’s impossible to counter them.
Khmer They’re better than they use to be, but still they need some eco buff. I’ll say economic techs 50% cheaper, and research 50% faster.
Vietnamese Oh gosh. A good civ… if you can survive until they point when they shine (Imperial age). Same scenario than Khmer, they need some eco buff. I’ll say military buildings (barracs, archery range, stable, siege work) cost only 75 or 100 wood. Also, I’ll give them some buff to the archers, since the 20% health don’t seems to do much. Maybe archers move faster, or do +2 to cavalry.
Malay they were over nerfed. I’ll say give back some attack to the harbors (maybe no the 7 attack, but 5?) and make forced levy + supplies make militia line cost 60 food
Burmese Give them thumb ring. They’re supposed to play archers, but arambai without it they just fail a lot. Also, they have otherwise really arc. cavs. Maybe nerf Arambai attack a little bit if the gain Thumb ring (not sure how to buff burmese, please give ideas!)
and, since Rise or Rajas civs are so behind… why did you devs nerfed the Elite Elephant? I mean, yeah, it has much more life than a paladin, but it cost a lot more, and it’s really slower, plus it’s a sitting duck againts monks and pike-line. When they had 16 attack they were viable, but now they’re is no sence in recruit them. I say let’s give them back they 16 attack.
just want to make clear that I don’t want this civs to be top civs like Mayans or Franks. I just want them to be playable as the rest of them
Please, people, leave your ideas and oppinions. Maybe if we all agree on, devs will add this changes!
Again, thanks devs for your work, and the new patch. You’ve heard us about cumans, now hear us a little more.
Thanks a have a merry chrismas and a Happy new near !
