Elephant Archers : STILL absolutely useless F-tier crap, according to Hera’s video, Nili’s Video as well as Viper’s video on this new patch.
Look at their reaction to the “buffs” to the pitiful EA. Viper and Hera are the two best in the world, what they say in full seriousness should definetly be taken as important.
Nili is a pro streamer and a pro player, so he knows both sides of the equation.
Word-to-Word: Hera says “TO BE HONEST ITS STILL TRASH”
Viper says “I DONT THINK IT CHANGES ANYTHING ABOUT THEM”
Nili sais “I STILL DONT THINK THEM VIABLE IN RM, IN DM MAYBE”
Hence, we can deduce from their judgements that -10 Gold and 2s reload time alone are nowhere near enough to fix this utterly gold wasting crap unit.
They have always and likely still serve no real purpose and lack an actual role in-battle, other thsn wasting precious food and gold and standing still in battlefields.
Let us discuss on what is to be done with this unit, known as the “Indian Unique Unit”.
Have you seen the video? Look what hera says about this so-called “buff to Indian camels”.
I trust the 2nd best player in the world more than you. So shall all people.
He says, “It is insignificant, nothing game changing for Indians”
And I have been vindicated on my continuous and tenuous effort to get it acknowledged that Mongols, Mayans, and Aztecs are 3 civs that absolutely need to be nerfed ASAP.
Especially El dorado and Aztec Millitary.
You opposed all of that, now see how much you can be wrong in your judgement. You and @JonOli12 have some reconsideration to do on your staunch Opinions on balancing.
he said and i quote “its not going to have a huge deal”. well yeah. that makes sense. after all, they aren’t exactly a weak civ. they don’t need much.
and he agrees it helps. is it a big help? no. but it helps.
he didn’t say insignificant. he said it wouldn’t be game changing. that’s fine. Indians don’t need game changing changes. they needed LIGHT buffs at best. and got it.
they just got nerfed, so be happy. and they weren’t top 3. heck on the most popular map, arabia, the one where they are picked the most, neither is above 52% winrate.
well they got nerfed. be happy.
yeah, because i’d rather bring up lower civs then spend time nerfing civs. guess what? Italians? Portuguese, Koreans, and Turks? still going to be crap for another month. but these changes? ain’t gonna do much to Aztecs and Mayans. they will still be popular and still be good civs.that effort could have been put into making those bad civs better.
they got a 25% dps buff and lost 10g on the cost. its a big buff. are they still going to be a rarely seen unit? yeah. show me an elephant unique unit that isn’t rarely seen.
on the other hand, it’s kind of hard to buff a unique unit for a civ that is already in a good spot.
really? where do most the people on the forum, Viper, and Hera, say they care if the unit actually becomes useful. yeah. Viper and Hera have said its a bad unit, i’ll give you that. but have they said they care about the usefulness of the unit? I’ve never seen it.
you can poke at me all you want about me and my “conservative thinking”, but I’m actually concerned about the civs that need love. you? you’re here complaining about your beloved Indians.
With all due respect to Hera, I’ve never seen him use the Ele archer and he definitely hasn’t used them in post buff conditions. I’ve tested 2.0 RoF Ele archers and they did feel like a much better unit. It’s not going to make them A tier overnight but definitely onto the ballista elephant tier, strong if you get to Ele archer+BBC+HC deathball
