I finally won Prithviraj 5 and it was partly thanks to the PUP’s abyssmal pathfinding (though it also got in my way, like when I tried attacking a castle with petards and siege elephants and they tried to do so through a cliff)
These will make me play Burgundians more, just so I can see the skins more often almost never see paladins lately.
In a weird way I wonder if this was actually even a tiny buff for Chinese. More expensive tech means they benefit more from their civ bonus.
Nevermind their alternate in the CKN
And conversely I wonder if the tech increase actually hurt civs like Malay and Italians more than other civs, since they can age faster but with fewer Res, makes a higher tech even harder to attain.
I’m wondering what can nerf them the most on arena without hurting Arabia where they’re already average. Was thinking probably the gold from stone (reduce from 50 to 25% maybe?) and maybe obuch castle age -10hp?
They need the eco from folwarks to be competitive, elite obuch needs to be strong to stay viable, and I don’t think their UTs have that much of impact on arena.
So unless folwarks gain a garrison ability I think any further nerfs could potentially hurt them too much on arabia
not really a buff, just not as big a nerf as it is for say, Koreans.
they are sitting at a 52% winrate on open maps, and 3 of the civs ahead of them just received direct nerfs.
that’s what i would do.
Folwark to mabe 8% and gains garrison (but no shooting, much like khmer houses).
nerf the gold to stone to 33%.
beyond that i have ideas but its hit and miss.
Obuch loses 1 PA
castle age UT - > 40% cheaper (offset with giving them final armor, or making imp UT affect knights).
