Changes the game needs.
Here are some balance changes the game needs, in my opinion. Remembering that I was elo conquer in all seasons, and I am also in team games.
Buff professional scouts. We know he is useless and needs affection.
Change in naval balance. Today the only civs that can really fight on water maps are hre, russians, chinese and english. Perhaps Abbasid. We need more strength for Delhi, French, Ottomans, Malians and others.
Nerf in trade. We know that commerce is very broken in games. In 1v1 matches it is very strong with Mongols/Malians. The problem really comes in team play. When there is a Malian on either side, either trade is denied or it’s game over. The collection rate is completely high.
I don’t believe the English need change. A nerf would only be necessary if the other civs continue a bit lower. One option would be to nerf the farm collection rate. Whereas they’re cheap and safe, and you don’t need to transition in the mid-game.
After the last changes like the 2tc nerf, it looks like they got a little weaker than usual. A tip would be to reverse the tech chivalry nerf. This way the knights will have more freedom and aggressiveness to raid.
It needs a buff on its special units. War and Tower Elephants are bad. The first one was never used, maybe it needs some area damage. The second one, after the nerfs, has very low HP. 600 hp for 1k resources is bad.
I don’t agree with the latest buffs received by Malians. Cows are a very good food source. 90 gold for 500 food. There is no reason to make farms for example, or even to put cows in a pasture. Farimba is a very good landmark. Maybe a nerf? I don’t know. We need more time to test before any changes.
I believe they are in a good place. Just like Malians, they need more time for testing. That way we’ll know if it needs buffs or nerfs.
Holy Roman Empire
Your Landsknecht are horrible units. High price makes it bad. Maybe they need to be cheaper. Perhaps an increase in piercing shield?
It needs a few more tweaks. A civilization that manages to do two age ups in 5 minutes has something wrong with its economy. Chinese are still an economic powerhouse and need maybe one more nerf. Empire official gold rate? Maybe. Nerf in the barn? Perhaps.
The Abbasids need more affection. Your unique units are pretty bad. Camel archers might be good on occasion, but the other camels are bad. Perhaps an increase in your armor? It might be a good change.
They are in a good place. I don’t think it needs tuning, at least not yet.
Need urgent buffs. Russians today are the worst civilization in the game. After several direct and indirect nerfs, the civ was in a very bad position
Direct Nerfs. streltsy. Palisade. Sheep Prize.
Indirect nerfs. 2tc. Relics. Wolves.
This set made the Russians far behind. I believe the nerf on the sheep was a mistake. The first change to make is reversing this nerf. Then let’s see how things work.
These are changes I wanted to see as soon as possible in the game.
I put here the link of another post I made, regarding bugs and exploits to be fixed urgently. Support to make a better game for everyone.
Thank you all. I hope that somehow the developers see this.
