Galleass makes no sense

There’s simply no reason why a player would in ANY situation use the galleass. It’s MORE expensive than the carrack, does less DPS, and has 1 less range AND with no bonuses v structures. (Funny that its description still reads “+anti structure specialist”).

Yeah, it can be made during Age III, but consider how expensive they are you hardly want to invest in them since they are just useless in Age IV. In any case, you can’t build lots of them in Age III anyway.

I think it would be a good idea to increase its range (for example to 10, one more tile than the carrack, matching the description that it carries a large bombard.) and give it some anti-structure bonus. Otherwise it’s useless and in any case should not be more expensive than the carrack. Or it should be significantly cheaper than the carrack.


I agree, you pretty much never see them. It needs something. Maybe even just a cost decrease if a stats increase would be too strong in castle age.


The Galleass also has a movement speed of only 1 while The Carrack has a speed of 1.25 (although it has the clunky animation to attack from the sides). I hardly ever play water even less French on water but I think the reason it is expensive is because it does NOT take bonus damage from demolition ships so it has no hard counters.

On a side note its dps is actually very close to the Carrack.


I think the best solution to galleas would be a age 4 tech unique to french that increase something on galleas, making them interesting age 4 without increasing their power age 3

But but water game play was re-designed by the super pro besdty, how is that water play still sucks?

Ha ha ha


They changed water to have a clear counter system which pretty much everyone was asking for. They didn’t really change the Galleas, which is what this thread is about, when they did that.

You are just coming in off topic with a snide comment for no reason.

Maybe their range?

I think the issue isn’t the galeass itself as much as the water fighting window generally never extending to age3.
