I am convinced there is a bias against China in this game. I main them. They have no arsenal, which they should have, while both the Hausa and Ethiopians get them. Even some of the Native Americans have arsenal improvements. The Japanese get them. There is no way the country that invented firearms, bombs, and the flamethrower, lacks an arsenal lol.
Second, those Japanese monks need nerfed into oblivion. They should only have 1. Their ability to dodge is insane. In the Imperial age they have like 1,500HP, which is a lot less then the Shaolin Master or an explorer but they dodge EVERYTHING.
The nerf to the guardian stun attack infuriates me. That was ONE thing China had above its enemies, it could collect treasures easier and faster.
Oh and Sweden gets advanced arsenal for free, while every other European civ needs to send a card for it? That needs removed, entirely. They should have to spend a card for it.
The meteor hammers are great units and I think semi-balanced, the iron flail is utter trash. It either needs like 100-200 more HP or like 20 more attack to be useful, the Chinese lack any movement speed upgrades AT ALL, they can’t even get one for their artillery, which is the slowest in the game.
China needs an arsenal, and they should get an advanced one, or at least a unique one native to them, with techs for them, I’ve actually posted and ranted FURIOUSLY over this lol. Big stickler for historical accuracy but like, wow.
Also, random thing to say here, why does France have halberdiers? They have pikemen, same with Portugal, they should NOT have access to halberdiers. They have pikemen and musketeers, that’s it. Wasted space of a unit.
