The explorer special shot cooldown increase and removal of age1 convert army effected haudenosaunee a lot as other TWC civs got effected. However, aztecs got an age1 scout as an alternate to this issue while there is no alternate for Iro regarding this. So that they perform worse in age1 right now, they are also one of the worst civ to boom with, so that their strats rely on pushing most of the time.
What could be done?
- Adding a starting scout unit in age1.
- Giving haude some sort of economic options to boom
