As stated by TheViper (), flemish militia either ends the game a way or another (instant win or lose), which, in my opinion, could be corrected/improved by simply only converting a % of your villagers, let’s say 30%.
That would :
add the opportunity to make flemish militia at TC (which is actually almost almost never done - more options in a strategy game is always welcomed, right ?).
help you fight back if you were under attack, without totally giving up on your eco.
Maybe the cost should be decreased as well (let’s say 50%?).
Do you think that’s a good idea ?
What do you think the % should be ?
100% (no change)
PS : I think the villagers should be converted depending on their actual task, to keep the same % of villagers on food, wood, stone and gold.
PPS : Idle villagers should be prioritized.
Maybe it should simply not convert your villagers but enable an icon on your villagers to transform them for a certain amount of gold for example. In this way you don’t kill your whole eco but can react to raids efficiently. The tech price should be reduced accordingly.
Convert only builders. This is easily achievable rather than a %. Also this enables a player to choose which villager he would convert by easily assigning the required villagers to build a palisade wall.
I don’t like this, because it makes the tech even more powerfull because the player researching can chose how much he want to be converted. It makes it even worse for the opponent because he doesn’t know what is coming, a flood or nothing.
sorry i meant a fixed ratio, but amount could also possible.
But i would prefer the ratio of like 50 %.
Edit: just to explain why: if you are raiding a burgundian player with scouts or cav archers, and see the tech researched, you have no other option than retreat, because if you stay, your army is gone. So he can just convert a few vills to bait the full conversion, you have to retreat and lose all momentum.
It would be even more broken as it is atm becaus then it is a game changer even if you don’t have any food stockpiled.
